Eight of the best hair saviours

Thursday, 27 August 2015

It’s not quite spring just yet, but it’s also not really winter. But all you have to show for this in-between season is dry and damaged hair, right? Give your hair a break from all the heat styling and colour changes, and give your locks need some well-deserved TLC. We’ve sourced eight hair masks that are bound to have your locks feeling happy and healthy. Remember it’s not instant gratification and one should apply a hair mask at least once a week for optimal results. Persevere and you too can have locks like Gigi Hadid.


Brand: Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask, R570
The deal: If your hair just doesn’t want to listen and the frizz is uncontrollable, this mask is probably your best bet. Infused with argan butter, argan oil, and coconut derived fatty acids you will be left with soft, manageable hair.

Brand: Kérastase MasquIntense Gluco-active EpaisNutrive, R425
The Deal: If you have very thick hair, this is answer. It’s an intensive treatment for very dry, sensitised hair.

Brand: Wella Elements Renewing Mask, R252
The Deal: A repairing mask that concentrates on restoring and preserving the internal structure of one’s hair, taking inspiration from nature.

Brand: Davines NaturalTech Nourishing Hair Building Pak, R334
The Deal: This beautiful salon brand is a must-try if you haven’t before. We love this nourishing mask that will help restructure the hair shaft, leaving your hair shiny and full-bodied. We also love that their packaging is recyclable.

Brand: Label.M Intensive Mask, R275
The Deal: How does a bran, cottonseeds, shea butter and Amazon cupuau combination sound? That’s exactly what you’ll find in this mask. Besides for nourishing the hair, it also protects against heat styling and damaging UV rays, making it great for summer!

Brand: Argan Oil Hydrating Hair Mask, R59.95
The Deal: This mask is specifically formulated to help improve the hair’s texture and manageability, and is infused with keratin and argan oil. It’s suitable for all hair types, but works especially well on dry and damaged hair.

Brand: L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Mask Balm, R62.95
The Deal: This luxurious mask contains six flower extracts, and targets dry hair. Even the driest of ends can’t resist this beautiful product. It smells incredible and leaves your hair with a healthy shine.

    I just recently bought the Kérastase MasquIntense for thin hair but haven’t used it yet. Everyone I know that has used the mask swear that it is the best thing ever so I’m rather excited to give it a try :)

    I have never tried a hair mask before. I have frizzy hair and using a straightener all the time, this makes your hair dry. Once a week I oil my hair with Coconut Oil and it works amazing and it is reasonably priced.

    Have extremely coarse hair with frazzled ends and have tried almost all the really EXPENSIVE brands with no improvement. Would love if one could try Davines by purchasing a starter / trial pack or even a sample. Cannot afford to pay R800 for a treatment and blowdry to see “if it works”.

    The Moroccan Smoothing mask sounds great, a bit expensive though :(

    Would love to try Davine’s but out of my price range. With my crunchy ends I may have to give Argan Oil Hydrating Hair Mask a try.
