Masks are essential for keeping your hair looking and feeling healthy. Containing richer and ingredients such as amino acids, lipids and proteins the right mask can combat the damage caused by overexposure to heat and the elements. Plus they protect against future damage (think of it like insurance for your 'do).
No matter how heat-ravaged, colour-damaged or lacklustre your hair is, one of our 10 favourite masks will get it looking its best...
All hair types stretch when wet, but when damaged hair stretches it can break as it’s more brittle.
Using this pre-shampoo treatment for at least five minutes (20, if you have the time) before your shampoo bi-weekly will prevent damage and increase hair’s elasticity; giving it some real bounce after just one use and repaired strands after a few goes.
Take in to consideration your hair type when buying a mask; each type needs the right dose of nutrients to target specific hair deficiencies.
Luckily our favourite mask for sensitised hair comes in Fins (for fine hair) or Epais (for thick hair), and both use a range of lipids for smoother, more manageable hair.
Packed full of amino acids and wheat proteins, which strengthen hair cuticles, this keratin-infused mask creates a barrier to protect against environmental agitators. We wouldn’t board a plane without packing it.
Struggling to grow your hair? We put this mask, with hair-growth promises, to the test and after a couple of uses our hair looked healthier, our split ends less-apparent and we had to book in for a trim two weeks before usual.
Innovative, because its two-part heat activated system includes a repairing serum that gets to the root of your hair problems (quite literally); the formula repairs damaged hair from inside of your the hair cuticle to give you shinier, healthier hair in 3 minutes. A lifesaver when you're in a rush.
Use this colour-preserving mask twice a week to keep your colour looking ‘just done’. Its gel-like texture shields hair against sun exposure which could alter the colour.
Quench thirsty, damaged, unruly hair with this lipid-rich mask that seals and tames split ends and frizz, whilst giving hair a big hit of moisture.
If it’s volume you’re looking for you need this mask. The Himalayan crystal minerals give limp, fine hair a real root-boost while still feeling weightless - clever.
The heavy-weight champion of restorative hair masks; it will turn even the most distressed hair into manageable and shiny in just a few uses.
The blend of 19 amino acids rebuilds the internal structure of hair cuticles, hydrating and reviving rebellious hair.
This ultra-light mask gives fine hair all the hydrating benefits without weighing it down. A hefty cocktail of argan oil and antioxidants strengthen and protect hair too.
Use a walnut size on your mid-lengths and ends, leave for five minutes and wash out thoroughly.
A classic, fail-safe mask that we come back to time and time again. In just three minutes it takes hair from dull to shiny and smells so amazing we have to resist from using it as a shower gel (and don’t always manage to).
The Super-Light Deep Conditioner
Heavy hair masks can weigh down fine hair, but not the latest addition to Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle line. The light mousse formula has been created especially for fine hair - leave it on for just 3 minutes to revitalise tired, damaged locks. It's so light you can use it every day!
