5 Hair Masks To Rejuvenate Your Locks (Under $20)
For every hair need.
Hair masks may not be as Instagram-worthy as their facial mask counterparts, but that doesn’t make them any less necessary. Between monthly colorist appointments, our affinity for hot tools and unpredictable weather conditions, it can be difficult to keep our tresses in tip-top, lustrous condition. So, to help the repair caused by chemicals, Mother Nature and genetics, we’ve gathered together our favorite hair masks to nourish fried strands, slick down split ends and leave parched parts quenched—all for less than you paid for dinner last night.
Those with thick, curly hair can be more prone to dryness and frizz, which makes a boost of hydration paramount. This oil- and butter-rich formula is so luscious, we kind of want to slather it all over our bodies. But, we’ve found that it really works wonders for taming unruly manes that are subjected to occasional frizz and breakage.
If your hair often falls flat, this is the perfect mask to get bodied and beachy locks. Expect big, tousled, unfrizzy hair throughout both the workday and happy hour. The texture of the product is aptly balm-like—more like a hair soufflé than a deep conditioner—so it’s guaranteed not to weigh down your tresses.
If greasy hair has got you down, don’t throw on your oversized hat just yet. Clay can help absorb excess oils and impurities from your roots. Unlike the other masks we’ve mention, this one is designed to apply BEFORE you shampoo.
Even though we have a beauty arsenal jam-packed with high end products, we keep coming back to this one. Formulated with olive oil and sweet almond oil to penetrate and coat the hair strands, this mask will restore much-needed shine and flexibility to your hair.
