A great hair mask for dry and damaged hair is like your wash day’s MVP when it comes to boosting moisture, strength, and the health of your hair overall. While leave-in conditioners and regular rinse-out options can also be helpful for keeping your hair hydrated, the best hair masks and deep conditioners are optimized with intensely hydrating ingredients like coconut and almond oils to help retain moisture, detangle knots, and fortify your strands even further.
For dry and damaged hair types—whether you have color-treated or natural and tightly coiled hair—hair masks can also add softness, shine, and thickness when your hair needs it the most. If you’re looking to find the perfect complement to your go-to shampoo and conditioner, we’ve pulled together a list of best-selling, raved-about hair masks from brands like Amika, Pattern, and Olaplex—many of which we’ve written about before—that might come in handy if you’ve been looking to expand your hair-care regimen or aren’t able to access your regular salon treatments right now.
