I’ve written about how hair masks saved my damaged hair, but I didn’t mention masks that have added the shine back to my dull strands. These masks are miracle workers: they take your locks and breathe life back into them, giving you gorgeous hair once they’re rinsed out. These are our top picks. shiny hair shiny hair
This mask was made for people who damaged the hell out of their hair (hello, yes, that’s me). Ingredients include shea butter to nourish both hair and scalp (which is super important — we wrote an article on it!), Jamaican black castor oil to stop breakage, and peppermint oil to stimulate hair follicles.
If you have frizzy hair, you’re in luck: Olaplex’s mask specifically treats your dry strands. Using their unique technology (aka Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate) to strengthen the bonds in your hair makes this one a no-brainer. It adds smoothness and shine — goodbye, frizz.
If you want a product that will ensure the perfect blow-out, look no further than this deep conditioning mask. It protects from UVA light while also repairing broken bonds and adding shine to your locks.
If you’re struggling with split ends, yes, you should trim them…and then use this hair repair treatment mask. Cupuaçu Butter moisturizes, Murumuru Butter adds shine, and Tucumã Butter stops breakage. Their plant-based keratin formula is the clincher by fusing together your split ends. Can your hair mask do all of that?
While some recommend deep conditioning only a few times a week, this formula works for those who need to deep condition every day. The secret ingredient: Sea buckthorn berry, which protects from environmental damage and increases collagen production thanks to its vitamins A, E, and C.
I personally use this mask, and it’s done wonders for my hair. Avocado and coconut oils promote shine and smoothing, while sunflower seed and vitamin E lock in color. It also smells amazing thanks to its pineapple, coconut, and vanilla notes.
