Best hair masks for coloured hair
As well as the best shampoo for coloured hair, a good hair mask will also help to preserve your shade if you dye your hair on the regular. Pureology’s does exactly that, with the hydration mask quenching your colour’s hairs thirst and restoring it to its former glory. The superfood formula is like a green smoothie for your hair, containing avocado and coconut oils for hydration and shine. Bottoms up.
Best hair masks for curly hair
Curly hair takes a little bit more work than straight, with its structure meaning hair’s natural oils have a trickier time making their way down the shaft. Give it a helping hand with Sachajuan’s specially formulated curl treatment, fixing your split ends and smoothing out the hair cuticle. You’ll get so many compliments on how much shinier and bouncier your curls are.
Whatever your biggest hair concern, rest assured that these masks will do the trick.
