3 MASKS TO GIVE YOUR HAIR LIFE
By Maybelle Morgan, 13 January 2018
Your hair deserves a round of applause. It’s withstood the torture of party season, a daily battering on your windy commute and basically served as your second scarf since it dropped below 10 degrees. And once you've performed that standing ovation, why not complete the necessary next-level thanks by giving it an ultra-rich hair mask? Whatever your beauty woes and your budget, here are three to sort you out, pronto…
You know that glossy, nourished look your hair has after leaving the hairdresser? It’s always been frustratingly impossible to recreate, but trust us, this hair mask from Korean beauty brand Kocostar is the next best thing. Like a drink of water for your locks and costing less than a tenner, it uses royal jelly, sesame seed oil and shea butter to power its rejuvenation abilities. It’s basically a saturated sheet mask, so wrap around towel-dried hair for 20 minutes and let it do its thing.
If you’re all about au naturel and organic, this Shea Moisture product is your deal. It claims to solve 10 different hair woes, so it doesn't mess around. Rich in antioxidants, the mask includes red raspberry ketones, marula oil, acai and guava (so you know it smells like heaven) and will deep condition, strengthen, soften and much more. Leave on for five minutes and rinse off with cold water for max shine.
OK, you’re going to have to splash out a little more for this vegan beauty, but Pureology serves up products that are seriously worth it. With a consistency resembling whipped cream, this lush sulphate-free mask (meaning only goodies, no baddies) helps out dry and colour-wrecked hair. Leave on for five minutes after shampooing for a super-rich treat with jojoba, green tea and sage to condition, plus notes of ylang ylang, bergamot and patchouli to leave your locks smelling insanely good.
