New Year, new hair. It's time to kiss dry, brittle hair goodbye in 2013, and here's how you can get the silky, shiny strands you've always wanted. To start, let your hair air-dry, avoid shampooing every day, and most importantly, put back any lost moisture with a revitalizing hair mask each week. Discover three top product picks now. On Kirbie: Closed top.
Maintaining a gorgeous mane requires work, when your hair is flat-ironed, colored, curled, and blow-dried day after day. You can bring back shine and manageability to your lackluster locks with these budget-friendly finds.
Let Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask ($58) be a more natural alternative to your weekly deep treatment. Composed of organic ingredients from the Amazon rain forest, this mask possesses a uniquely smoky scent that comes from superstar ingredient ungurahua oil. What makes this oil different than many other varieties of its kind is that it contains tiny molecules that penetrate the hair shaft, instead of just coating it. This means your hair is quenched and fortified from within. Quinoa protein strengthens strands, while lavender and eucalyptus provide a relaxing aroma. So watch your tangles unravel and your dryness disappear; this once-a-week hydrator is a potent prescription.
With heat styling and changes in weather, hair can take a beating, so it deserves a little TLC every now and then. A hair mask is an easy way to resuscitate your tresses once a week, but the Repêchage Hair Spa Seaweed Mask ($55) goes the extra mile. This mask, made from seaweed plants, restores hair's elasticity and strengthens damaged ends. It's almost like turning back the clock on your hair health and bringing it back to square one. The seaweed mask also helps seals up the cuticles, effectively eliminating frizz.
Repêchage's mask can be used one of two ways: as a short-term treatment you use in the shower, or one you keep in your hair overnight. And while the mask may seem a little pricey, you'll definitely get a lot of bang for your buck, as a little goes a long way. Grab this mask, slather it on, and take your hair deep-sea diving.
Just as our skin feels the effects of our harsh environment, our hair does too. Not only does it face similar issues of dryness, dehydration and lifelessness, but because we tend to use heated tools for styling, our hair risks severe and irreparable damage from over-processing.
Once in a while, it's nice to give your hair a healthy glass of water to recharge and revitalize limp locks. These dynamite deep conditioners will help your dreary and dry hair undergo a dramatic change. Here are a few of my favorite products:
Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense Intense Enriching Treatment is often a professional's hair masque of choice. Jennifer Aniston's hairdresser Chris McMillan uses this on her fine hair frequently to add shine and luster. The rest of us are recommended to do this treatment twice a week.
