Whether your curls are limp, your ends are fried, or you bleached your roots in quarantine, the best hair masks for damaged and dry hair can help. Think of them like conditioners on steroids. Fortified with nourishing oils and deeply hydrating ingredients, they quickly go to work to repair split ends and restore softness—no matter your hair type, length, or texture.
Of course, certain formulas work better than others depending on your specific concerns. A bond repair mask like Olaplex does wonders to bring heat- or color-damaged hair back to life, while a deep-conditioning treatment is key if it’s strong, bouncy curls you’re after. And if your color is looking dull? Consider a toning mask your new best friend. Just ask our editors (and a few of our Glamour Beauty Awards judges) who named their favorites just for you.
A few general tips to know before you buy: Aim to use a mask once or twice a week instead of your usual conditioner. Leave it on for at least 10 to 15 minutes (keeping a claw clip and a comb stashed in your shower will help if you have long or natural hair), and rinse using cold water, which will help boost shine. Now that you’ve got that down, read on for the best hair masks that are truly worth your money.
