#LovelyLocks: A Hair Mask For EVERY Hair Type!

We love changing our mane look every now and then while keeping up with the latest hair trends. Most drastic changes often require some form of chemical treatment which can leave your tresses less glam than you would like. Even if you’re the type of girl who prefers to go au naturale with your hair, environmental factors such as heat, exposure to the UV rays of the sun and pollution can wreck your hair. Worry not, because we have a list of hair masks to address your hair concerns!

1. For dry hair

Be it summer or winter, dryness is a common hair problem. While we cannot control factors like temperature and wind that cause dryness, we can, certainly, up the hydration and nourishment factor in our hair care routine to fight dryness.

The Schwarzkopf Spa Essence Hydrating Cream Masque, promises to do exactly that! It’s a thick cream mask that can be used as a post-shower conditioner or a pre-shower treatment. Use it along with their signature ampoules for a quick home hair spa treatment.

2. For hair that’s damaged

Constant heat styling and pollution can take a toll on your hair health leaving it brittle and prone to breakage. While we can’t undo the harmful effects altogether, using a hair mask tailored to repair extremely damaged can surely help.

We love the L'Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Masque. Its luscious buttery texture and protein rich formula helps in restoring the hair cuticle, and thereby repairing any damage.

3. For hair that’s thick and unruly

Styling thick and unruly hair can be a nightmare, but treating such hair before styling it can make a huge difference. Most hair products aimed at fine hair tend to be very light in consistency. Unfortunately, such products don’t really cut it for those of you with thick hair that requires something more intense.

Try the Wella Enrich Moisturizing Treatment tailored specifically for thick and unruly hair.

4. For hair that’s undergone heavy chemical treatment

Hair that has been chemically treated requires products made specifically to suit such a hair type. These products have to be intense enough to repair the damage caused by the chemical treatment and yet mild enough for such fragile hair.

If you’ve had a keratin/smoothening treatment, your hair will love the L'Oreal Professionnel X-tenso Care Straight Masque. It will make your hair retain the results of the keratin/smoothening treatment longer, while treating any damage. What’s better is that it works on untreated hair too by taming flyaways and keeping frizz at bay!

5. For lifeless hair

Everyone is raving about the benefits of Argan oil. It is lightweight, yet, intensely hydrating, making it perfect for all hair types. It makes your hair shiny, soft and smooth. We love the OGX Argan Oil of Morocco because it is so versatile - it works on straight hair as well as it does on curly hair. It infuses shine into dull lifeless hair while still retaining bounce and volume.

6. For coloured hair

You’ve coloured your hair (probably more than once), but now that your initial excitement has died down, you notice some damage and the colour fading away. Post colour care is extremely crucial to seal the hair cuticle in with moisture so that damage is repaired and the colour lasts longer.

Treat your coloured locks better by using the Bed Head Colour Goddess Miracle Treatment Mask which promises to undo damage while making your colour appear brighter and last longer!

7. For dull hair

Dullness can make even the most sharply styled hair look drab. When no amount of styling is giving you those polished looking glossy tresses you so desire, give The Body Shop Coconut Oil Hair Shine a shot. The benefits of coconut oil for the hair have been known for ages, but this product takes your regular coconut oil up a notch. Its buttery formula is non-drip and because it is so intense, you only need a little bit each time. What’s even better is that this can be used as a pre-shower hair treatment or a post shower cream to tame frizz and flyaways.
