Dry, brittle strands may indicate that your hair needs some care, and the weather conditions in the colder months could make it worse. Enter hair masks. Although all hair types can benefit from a good mask, these deeply nourishing, nutrient-rich formulas are particularly suitable for dry hair that is easier to split or break off at the follicle.
"Hair masks and treatments are a great way to care for and soften dry hair, especially in winter," said Sacha Mitic, hairdresser and co-founder of the Sachajuan hair care line. Like facial masks, hair masks are not necessarily meant for everyday use, but as an extra step if you notice that your hair might need a boost. "Start with a weekly masking and adjust the frequency depending on what your hair needs," recommends Mitic.
These 21 masks thoroughly care for even the dried strands so that the hair looks and feels softer, shinier and healthy.
