Which is the Best Hair Mask for My Hair?

Best Hair Mask for Fine Hair: Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

Formulated as a pre-shampoo mask, the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is a cult hair product that produces fantastic results on all hair types. It’s particularly effective on fine hair as there’s no residue once washed out. To use, apply and leave for 10-20 minutes, rinse thoroughly, and follow with shampoo and conditioner.

For a hint of fragrance, try the Coconut Breeze edition or the new Rose and Lychee scent.

Best Hair Mask for Coloured Hair: Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Superfood Mask

When it comes to hair care for colour-treated hair, Pureology are the experts. With sulphate-free formulas and decadent nourishing blends, there’s something for all hair types. The Superfood Mask keeps colour looking fresh and replenishes moisture from root to tip. For best results, leave on for 2-5 minutes, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends of the hair.

For blonde coloured hair, you’ll also love the Pureology Strength Cure Superfood Treatment which keeps blonde hair looking healthy and glossy in between salon visits.

Best Hair Mask for Dry Hair: MoroccanOil Hydrate

With three incredible hair masks to choose from, MoroccanOil offer a plethora of choice. For extremely dry hair, the Intense Hydrating Mask is a rich revitalising treatment that gets to work in just 5-7 minutes. Powered by an effective blend of Argan Oil, Glycerin and Linseed Extract, these ingredients work in harmony to smooth, nourish and protect against UV damage.

Best Multipurpose Product: Redken One United

Looking for a haircare multitasker? The Redken One United Multi-benefit treatment can be used in many ways, not just as a hair mask. With a reported 25 benefits, we use the product as a lightweight conditioning spray to improve softness, reduce frizz and prime for further heat styling.

Best Hair Mask for Damaged Hair: L’Oreal Professionnel Série Expert Nutrifier Masque

Best Mask for a Thickening Effect: Grow Gorgeous Thickening Hair and Scalp Mask

For those looking to transform flat, fine, hair and enjoy a boost of volume and thickness, the Grow Gorgeous Thickening Hair and Scalp Mask is the ideal choice.

As well as Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil and Amino Acids, this mask contains the key ingredient of Caffeine, due to its strengthening fortifying effects. With continued use, hair strands will become more resistant to damage and the scalp will achieve prime condition for hair growth. We’d say this could be the best hair mask for energising and reinvigorating the hair.

Best Mask for Humidity Protection: Kérastase Discipline Maskeratine

With changeable weather conditions, the hair is prone to frizz and react quickly to changes in humidity. Using the Kérastase Discipline Maskeratine pro-keratin treatment makes the hair more manageable, intensely hydrated and resistant to frizz.
