Briogeo Donâ€™t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask
ishonest readers have declared Briogeo's damage-repairing mask a three-time Reader's Choice Award winner, which isn't all that surprising when you take its nourishing B vitamins, rosehip oil, and almond oil into account. Include Don't Despair, Repair in your regimen if your hair needs an intense boost of moisture whether you have straight, curly, or coiled hair.
Redken Extreme Mega Mask
Redken's Extreme Mega Mask is somewhat of a miracle for long and healthy hair, which is why it won a Best of Beauty Award in 2017. Its ceramides plump and hydrate hair while proteins reinforce hair strength, all while the candy-like scent wafts throughout your shower.
Overtone The Remedy
Overtone's Best of Beauty-winning color mask deeply hydrates roots while boosting hair with bright, semi-permanent pigments. If you want all the hydration without the colorful commitment, try its coconut oil-packed The Remedy mask. The minty-fresh scent it leaves behind is just a small perk compared to the softness it can provide.
Sachajuan Hair Repair
The easy-to-use pump and frizz-fighting formula aren't the only reasons research director Lori Segal sticks to Hair Repair from Sachajuan. "For my fine to medium-thick hair, it's easier to apply and spread than the pasty, thicker masks you often get in tub form," she says. "It combs evenly through my hair and rinses out quickly, making it a lower-maintenance deep conditioner mask for hair."
Curls So So Moist Vitamin C Curl Mask
"Iâ€™ll be honest, I'm a natural who doesn't regularly deep condition, but when I do deep condition I like to grab the So So Moist Vitamin C Curl Mask," editorial assistant Gabi Thorne says of this curl mask packed with glycerin and a plethora of reparative vitamins. "This thick creamy mask infuses my parched curls full of moisture."
