How to pamper your tresses
Winter has left its mark on our mane: split ends, broken strands, a lifeless shade… When our locks are thirsty, it’s important to nourish and pamper them as much as possible. A hair mask is the best way to rescue damaged locks: use it to revive them at the beginning of every new season, by applying the entire jar to damp, clean hair. We also like to arm ourselves with elixirs to be used once a week, or whenever our hair needs a bit of extra care. Here are three potent picks to try.
L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Masque
A mix of rich, moisturizing oils—avocado, passion-flower and royal jelly—is the secret behind the Mythic Oil collection. The mask’s rich texture covers each strand to nourish and restore your hair, leaving it super shiny as a result. Keep the treatment in your hair for three to five minutes to let the ingredients work their magic; your locks will be as soft as silk and as shiny as gold in no time.
$30 at select salons.
Argan oil is at the heart of this formula, and it’s combined with powerful moisturizing ingredients in order to provide a soft, creamy treatment to our beloved strands. Apply the mask from root to tip in the shower and leave it in for about five minutes before rinsing it out. An extra treat: its exotic vanilla and sandalwood fragrance!
Went a little crazy with the hair iron lately? Coloured your hair one too many times this winter? Get your hands on Shu Uemura’s latest innovation. Behind the concept: lotus infusion technology. The flower adds flexibility, hydration and suppleness, and ceramide strengthens each strand with keratin. An efficient duo if we ever saw one! Plus, we love its floral almond scent.
