Each and every one of us has been there. We’ve waited too long to get our hair trimmed, put our strands through one too many rounds of bleach, or fried our ends with our hair straightener time and time again. We end up with hair full of split ends, occasional stray frizzy strands, and overall dull and tired looking locks. If you’ve decided this is the season of the bob for you then full speed ahead, my friend. Ditch the length in favor of a short and healthy cut with our blessing. But if you’re not quite ready to let go of your hard earned mermaid-worthy strands then you’ll need a knight in shining armor of sorts, a product that will restore your hair to its former glory. We’re talking about the hydrating hair mask of all hydrating hair masks and we’re including our best tips for how to make the most of one of our favorite products. While a hydrating hair mask isn’t as Instagram-friendly as a face mask, we promise that the results will be.
The Hydrating Hair Mask We’re Obsessing Over
In an age when we’re receiving constant reminders to bump ‘self care’ back up to the top of our list of priorities, a hair mask is a must-have. We’re big proponents of finding small ways to treat ourselves that double as things that are actually good for us. Think of a hydrating hair mask as the chia seeds in your morning smoothie. A dose of healthy benefits in the form of a creamy and deliciously smelling treat. (Just don’t try to eat this one!).
The Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Moisture Restoring Masque does all the work while you focus your attention on more exciting things (like painting your nails or your latest Netflix binge). The mask works to create a protective barrier of moisture around each and every strand and binds the moisture within each hair fiber. It uses advanced conditioning technology to rescue hair that’s been damaged by heat and chemical processes. Cue the white horse, ladies, because you’ll be amazed by the results you see after just one use.
For optimum results we suggest massaging the mask onto your damp strands from the roots to the ends. Take care to make sure that the product is evenly distributed and leave it in for about 10 minutes. Rinse it out when you’re finished and style your hair as usual.
