If you’ve been wearing hats to cover up bad hair days for far too long then it’s time to invest in a treatment for your tresses. Gone are the days when they would leave your hair feeling full of gunk. Now they help hydrate your locks and some even double up as styling products. Here’s our guide on what to use depending on your hair type.
Coloured hair: Dye damages hair so try Kerastase Resistance Masque Age Recharge, £20.62 to hydrate your dry and frizzy locks. The firming gel-formula means even if you do accidentally use too much it won’t weigh your hair down. This mask renews your hair’s strength which gives you a ‘just walked out of a salon’ feel to your hair. And because it’s very nourishing, it’s also good for anyone hoping to grow their hair.
