“I love my hair because it’s a reflection of my soul. It’s dense, it’s kinky, it’s soft, it’s textured, it’s difficult, it’s easy and it’s fun. That’s why I love my hair.” – Tracee Ellis Ross.
Whether it’s straight, wavy, curly, thick or thin, our hair is a huge part of who we are; it is one of the ways we, as women, choose to express ourselves. In our opinion, it is one of a woman’s greatest and most powerful tools. That is why we need to keep it as healthy and as luscious as can be, a task that has proven to be quite tedious, to say the least. Let’s face it, Tracee Ellis Ross has probably had days where she wasn’t the biggest fan of her hair, just like the rest of us. Luckily for you we’ve gathered up 10 of the best tried and true flip-worthy hair treatments in the game for the days when you want to take extra care of your mane (…yes, we know that rhymed).
This top-rated hair mask is known as one of the classics. It contains three main naturally derived extracts namely, olive fruit oil, meadowfoam seed oil and sweet almond oil to treat overly dry or processed hair by giving it a kick of hydration. Use it once a week and thank us later!
This one’s for all the curly-haired queens. A cult-favourite, this organic shea butter infused conditioning, enhancing smoothie is enriched with other natural ingredients like coconut juice and oil, silk proteins and other essential oils to give your hair a truly hydrating experience. This styling product will have your curls looking as bouncy and as shiny as ever while also keeping your hair super healthy.
Another product we love is this CHI Silk Infusion leave-in treatment that helps in minimizing breakage and protecting the hair from constant heat treatment. It will give your hair strength while keeping it soft and easily manageable thanks to ingredients like silk, wheat and soy proteins.
Moroccanoil, Restorative Hair Mask
Get glowing, rich hair in just 5-7 minutes with this fan-favourite hair mask. If your hair feels worn out from all those tireless blowouts, this is the treatment for you. Simple, non-time-consuming with quick results, this restorative hair mask formula contains argan oil, shea butter and keratin protein that will enhance your hair’s overall look.
Kérastase, Masque Extentioniste
Are you craving longer locks? This Kérastase mask will give you the longer, healthier hair you’ve been looking for. With ingredients like Creatine R, an amino acid complex known to boost hair fibers and fortify strands all the way down to the tips, and Maleic Acid, it will allow your hair to grow without the undesired breakage phase we all love to hate.
This paraben, SLS and fragrance free shea butter and argan oil deep conditioning hair mask is for those days when you’ve been out swimming and exposed to the sun. It’ll replenish your hair by detangling and moisturising your strands, minimizing damage caused by salty or chlorine-filled waters.
Shea butter, baby. Can we just stress on how amazing this yummy smelling extract is for your hair? If that isn’t enough, this ‘miracle-in-a-tub’ deemed hair mask also contains Kukui oil and organic coconut oil that help penetrate the hair shaft, leaving it healthy and super soft.
We love this hair oil by Gizmo. It’s formulated from a variety of oils along with blackseed extract, coffee extract and vitamin E that work together to stimulate hair growth while taking care of those split ends and reviving your hair back to its natural shine.
Made from organic, handpicked Sidr leaves that are properly hand-cultivated and dried at optimum temperatures, this is Hair Addict’s all-natural alternative to shampoo. The main idea behind its formulation is to preserve the active ingredients of the Sidr leaves to give your hair volume and moisture without stripping it of its natural oils. We’re all about that preservation action happening here! It also has anti-inflammatory properties and works well with coloured and chemically-treated hair.
A rosehip, argan oil and avocado oil blend. Sold. This mask will reduce that unnecessary, unphotogenic frizz that tends to have a life of its own and will restore dry, brittle hair.
