Deep-conditioning treatments aren’t reserved for trips to the salon anymore. Your local drugstore shelves are filling up with hair masks that quench overworked, over-processed, and over-dry strands just as well, thanks to natural oils and strengthening proteins. So if you ever use a blow dryer, pick up one of the above ASAP!
The sizeable tub of Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask ($6) is full of natural extracts like olive and sweet almond to soothe your over-processed strands.
L’Oreal’s EverPure line is free of sulfates (which break down proteins and weaken your hair). Instead, the line’s Moisture Deep Restorative Masque ($8) uses a 100% vegan formula to lock in your color for up to 32 washes.
While Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner ($4) really does penetrate your hair in just three minutes, you can also use it as a leave-in treatment for up to thirty.
Previously hard-to-find salon or international products are popping up on drugstore shelves, like hairstylist favorite Kérastase, whose Nutritive Masquintense ($51) is nothing short of miraculous. We know the price tag stands out from other drugstore options, but only a small amount of this nutrient-packed formula will weightlessly condition even the most distressed hair.
Don’t think you have enough time to give your hair some TLC? Vidal Sasson’s Pro Series 1 Minute Mask ($5) only needs as long it takes to wash your face to restore the damage done by heat styling.
Pantene developed their AgeDefy Rejuvenation Hydration Hair Masque ($15) with the anti-aging experts at Olay to create a formula that specifically restores the hydration our hair loses as we get older.
Get a regular dose of strengthening keratin along with moisturizing avocado and coconut oils in Organix’s Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Hydrating Keratin Masque ($8).
Another salon favorite you can now score at the drugstore, Macadamia’s Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque ($23) is enriched with the brand’s signature blend of macadamia and argan oils, which rebuild weak hair by providing deep moisture.
