5 hair masks to try at home | Stylist recommended
Now we’re all being told to #stayhome to protect each other why not set aside an evening a week to pamper yourself and show your hair some TLC with a professional hair mask. As the battle against Coronavirus sadly takes over the globe and people self-isolate (if they can), salons are unfortunately having to temporarily shut their doors (including us, by the way). But thankfully we’re still here online to help you keep on top of your haircare regime at home!
Staying indoors with your central heating on for most of the day and a lack of fresh air doesn’t exactly bode well for your hair, but there are ways to help keep your hair healthy. We’re about to make your haircare routine a whole lot smoother (literally). Not to mention you can order your favourite hair mask right to your front door from our online shop. Plus we’re offering 30% off all shampoo and conditioners (including some hair masks) so now is the time to ensure you have the right products to see you through.
To help you plan your night of slathering and lathering, we’ve put together our top 5 professional hair masks for you to try, all recommended by our expert stylists. Pour yourself a glass of wine, queue up your Netflix, and get ready for healthier hair.
Hair mask #1: Colour maintenance
Redken Color Extend Magnetics Mask
Are you sat at home wondering when you’ll be able to visit the salon again to touch up your hair colour? Well, this little number from Redken is a god-send. Treat your coloured hair with the care it deserves. Redken’s Color Extend Magnetic Mask is an intensive treatment recommended by our stylists to maintain your hair colour’s vibrancy. How it works? It uses specially formulated technology that traps colour molecules into the hair fibre, helping to preserve colour richness. Buy this in time for your next weekly mask for stunning, professional-looking results at home.
Hair mask #2: Nourishment
Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral
Ideal for thicker hair that is very dry, the Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral nourishes locks to give you a softer, velvety finish. As we’re all spending most of our days at home at the moment, this is the perfect mid-week pick-me-up for your hair. Hair will feel easier to manage and detangle too – which will be music to your ears if you have curly or coarse hair. Add a gorgeous radiant shine to your list of results and you’ll wonder why you never used it sooner! Our stylists recommend using this little Kerastase gem weekly directly after shampooing for optimum results.
Hair mask #3: Age-defying
Label.M Therapy Age-Defying Recovery Mask
As we age, the number of follicles able to grow new hair begins to decline and the diameter of hair fibre shrinks. This can result in thinning hair (as well as greys). Fortunately, the Label.M Therapy Age-Defying Recovery Mask quickly repairs and transforms ageing locks, for beautiful, illuminating results. By deeply moisturising your dehydrated hair, it leaves locks rejuvenated and healthier-looking. Perhaps even better looking than it did when you were younger! It’s also free from Parabens, Sulphate and Sodium Chloride. This Label.M mask is kind to your hair, (and the environment) providing essential nourishment that visibly reduces the signs of ageing.
Hair mask #4: Repair and restore
Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask
As we resort to our fail safe top knot for the next few weeks, we could cause hair to become weaker and brittle. Why? Hair scraped up into a fairly tightish knot for a prolonged period can put strain on our strands. This causes them to become weaker over time – just like a weakened elastic band. And just like a weak elastic band it’s prone to breakage. Stylists recommend applying the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask as a way to quickly repair weak, damaged or even colour-treated hair. We love this 5-7 minute Moroccanoil revitalising treatment, which helps to give hair everything it needs to look effortlessly stunning.
System Professional Smoothen Mask
Whilst remaining at home might prevent damage caused to hair by the environment and weather, staying indoors doesn’t exactly protect hair either. Lack of fresh air and central heating can cause hair to become frizzy and difficult to manage. Treat your hair with the System Professional Smoothen Mask for intense nourishment that works to condition hair. This System Professional mask instantly improves smoothness from root to tip for supple, silky results. Ideal for curly and unruly hair, this treatment calms frizz and maximises control for easy manageability. Hair will look smoother and feel silky soft from the comfort of your home.
