Whipping up a DIY hair mask with avocado, olive oil or egg whites seems like a fun activity — especially when you’re spending so much time at home. While we’re all for indulging in self-care, an at-home treatment may not be the best way to give your strands the TLC they deserve. So before you slather a kitchen concoction from your roots to your tips, keep reading. Here, we’re sharing if DIY hair masks are actually good for your hair.
Even though there will likely be similarities between the ingredients you use in your at-home treatment and the ingredient list on the back of your favorite, store-bought hair mask, they’re likely not going to perform the same. Hair masks from beauty shops, the drugstore or credible e-commerce sites are often created by teams of cosmetic chemists who carefully determine which ingredients work well together, conduct clinical trials and make adjustments accordingly. Without the expertise of a professional, a hair mask won’t give the desired results, be it color-enhancing, smoothing or softening. That’s why we typically steer clear from at-home hair treatments.
While we don’t recommend DIY-ing hair masks, there are a ton of great at-home options you can pick up from the drugstore. They’re all easy-to-use and will deliver results. So whether you’re looking for a color-boosting balm, nourishing mask or repairing treatment, here are our favorite masks to try.
Whether you recently got your hair colored at the salon or have become an at-home hair color guru due to social distancing measures, this hair mask is a must-have in your hair-care arsenal. In just one use, it can help repair color-damaged hair and smooth out a dry texture. Apply the intensive post-color repair treatment after shampooing with L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse.
If you’ve been using a lot of heat on your hair, are noticing split ends or are trying to repair any kind of hair damage, reach for this rinse-out at-home mask. The formula conditions and strengthens broken hair fibers to make hair look healthier and stronger. To use, just apply a quarter-sized amount of product to wet strands and massage it through the ends. Wait three to five minutes, then rinse. Repeat once a week.
Calling all curly girls and huys! If your curls tend to get dry (especially during the winter) check out this nourishing mask. It’s formulated to rehydrate your strands, bring back your bounce and define your curls so your hair can look its best. Your hair will feel softer after just one use. For best results, use this mask with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Conditioner.
