After a long winter of exposure to harsh weather, nights spent in with the heat blasting and going a little overboard with the hot tools (guilty!), our strands can use all the TLC they can get. This is especially the case if you have curly or wavy hair that tends to be on the drier side and in dire need of some serious moisture. Thankfully there are ways to easily treat your hair at home thanks to some products found at your local drugstore like a hair mask for curly hair. Not only is our pick wallet-friendly, it’s also a great option to revive and nourish your curly hair, making it soft, smooth and more manageable! Read on to check out the hair mask for curly hair that we can’t get enough of.

Bargain Hair Mask for Curly Hair

This curly hair mask is about to become one of your holy grail products.

One of the most common reasons that curls may not be behaving exactly as you’d like them to is because they’re lacking moisture. The goal is touchably soft and bouncy curls that retain their form while still showing movement and definition. That’s why it’s so important to add that moisture back via an intensive hair mask.

One of our favorites for curly hair is the Dove Quench Absolute Intense Restoration Mask that works to nourish and moisturize your curls. Infused with nutrients, protein and Buriti oil, this mask for curly hair penetrates and fortifies your hair inside, helping to make your curls more manageable, soft, visibly smooth and less frizzy. Amazing, right?!

Ideally this mask should be used once a week, and used as a three-part system, alongside the Dove Absolute Curls Nourishing Shampoo and the Dove Absolute Curls Nourishing Conditioner. This can help you to reduce hair breakage while also providing your natural curls with four times more definition.

Shampoo, condition and rinse as you regularly would and apply a generous amount of the mask to the bottom three quarters of your strands. If you’re short on time you can leave the mask on for 3-5 minutes while you wash your body and rinse it out after. If you have a bit more time at your disposal you can leave it on up for up to 10 minutes for super soft results.

Air-dry (or diffuse it if you’re pressed for time) and style your curly hair as you usually would. Prepare to love your newly soft and smooth curls!
