Tresemme hair mask for dry hair Keratin Masque
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Treatment Masque

4. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Treatment Masque (£5.50*)

As mentioned earlier, dry hair is more prone to frizz, and often for those who have naturally curly hair, this means dreaded undefined curls. So, if you’re looking for a way to regain that sleek, silky-feeling, why not try a keratin hair mask? The great thing about TRESemmé’s Deep Treatment Masque is that it’s gentle enough to be used on colour-treated hair, too. Apply this hair mask for dry hair to your mane at least once a week, or more frequently if your hair really needs an extra dose. And remember to concentrate your application on mid-length down to the tips, as too much product at the roots can weight your hair down and make your hair look greasy, instead.
