Have you ever felt like no matter how often you trim your hair, shampoo and condition your hair, don’t shampoo but do condition your hair, it just never seems to look right? Or it simply doesn’t look or feel as healthy as you think it should? You’re not alone. Knowing how to keep hair healthy requires more than a daily wash and hydration routine in the shower. You need to know how to moisturize your hair from the inside out, and the secret is adding a hair mask or oil to your weekly routine. These hydrating powerhouse products are possibly one of the best healthy-hair resources regardless of whether your hair is thick and curly or fine and thin, because there’s one for every hair type—even yours.
Thick and creamy, hair masks are renowned for their nourishing, healing and deep-moisturizing benefits. They are best used on clean, damp hair, and their rich formulas penetrate the hair follicle providing it with maximum hydration to repair dry, brittle, damaged and broken strands.
Best hair mask for dry hair
Formulated with hydrating ingredients like argan, coconut, flower and apricot oils, L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Renourishing Butter is ideal for dry and damaged hair. Its buttery base is not only deeply moisturizing but also revives lifeless hair and restores its natural radiance. This butter is considered one of the best drugstore hydrating hair masks.
Best hair mask for thin, damaged long hair
Just because your long hair is fine or thinning doesn’t mean it can’t bounce back to looking fabulous. Hair masks like L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Savior Mask help you say goodbye to the split ends and damaged strands that are taking a toll on your locks by intensely repairing them with a blend of vitamins, keratin and castor oil. Just apply the mask to freshly washed and towel-dried hair, leave it in for two or three minutes, rinse and then lock in the moisture with your favourite L’Oréal Paris hair conditioner.
Best hair mask for coloured hair
It doesn’t matter if your hair colour is red, blond, brunette, black or a rainbow hue, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm will repair your strands with its formula of acai palm and antioxidants, penetrating each strand to restore strength and brilliance while locking in colour.
Best hair mask for curly hair
Whether you have beach waves, tight coils or any type of curl in between, you know that frizzy, unruly curls never look good. With the right hair mask, like L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil 1001 Uses Coconut Oil Mask, you can tame your hair and diminish frizz while deeply nourishing it and defining your waves, curls and coils without weighing them down. But that’s not all. This oil mask’s infusion of extra-fine coconut oil can be used on dry hair as a style finisher to add sleek shine or on clean, damp hair as a leave-in overnight restorative treatment.
Your hair’s natural oils are a key factor in keeping your locks looking and feeling soft, smooth, shiny and hydrated. So when your hair is showing signs of dullness or dryness, you need to add a hair oil to your routine to restore its hydration, no matter what your hair type or texture. Think of hair oils as crucial to keeping your hair healthy.
Best hair oil for all hair types
Overflowing with precious oils, L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Penetrating Oil works just as well on thin, flat hair as it does on thick, curly hair. Its weightless formula penetrates your hair fibres quickly and nourishes each strand giving you all of the silky softness, smoothness and shine you want without the greasy finish.
You can even use it on the go to add shine and eliminate flyaways, thanks to L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Daily Treatment’s smaller, portable size that pops easily into your purse. Both sizes can be used as a hair treatment that is rinsed out or as a styling oil to add shine and control while minimizing frizz.
