Hair needs just as much TLC as your skin, but all too often we forget to give it the care and attention it deserves. Heated appliances, highlighting and other chemicals can damage the delicate hair shaft, leaving it looking dry, frizzy and dull. Bring it back to its lustrous glory with regular use of an intense hair mask to replenish and nourish. We're giving you two of the best hair masks in the market, one just a tad pricey and the other affordable. Your choice to splurge or steal.
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Sushu Sleek Smoothing Treatment Mask for Unruly Hair
This intense mask is rich in Black Cumin Oil, renowned for centuries for its restorative properties. Seeds of this amazing miracle ingredient were found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Known as The Oil of Pharaohs, it has a very high concentration of the powerful natural anti-oxidant Nigellone, containing omegas 3, 6 and 9, along with essential fatty acids to restore health to damaged hair. The mask feels and smells like a very expensive luxury face cream, so you just know it’s going to do wonders for your hair.
If you have fine hair, apply sparingly. If you have thick, unruly hair, this is perfect. Apply to damp hair and leave in for up to 30 minutes, although the product recommends 5-10 minutes. Rinse and style as normal. And be prepared to lap up compliments from your friends. Cost £33
This well-kept secret is actually the secret to beautiful hair. The luxurious ingredients intensely moisturize dehydrated hair and repair damage with regular use. Argan oil, frequently called liquid gold for the hair, rich in vitamin E and essential fatty oils, works hard to strengthen the hair, and makes it feel light and silky. Superb shine comes from the Linseed oil, which works to smooth and seal the cuticle, resulting in luminous sheen. And finally, Cyperus oil, from the cyperus plant that has been grown in Egypt for more than 4000 years, is an excellent source of fatty acids to give softness and volume, while the tocopherol gives the hair natural protection from free radicals.
Apply evenly over damp hair and leave in for 3 – 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly for transformed hair. This is luxury for your hair at a very affordable price. Cost £14
