Healing Your Hair With Hair Masks – By Marisa Chiorello

Hey there, beautiful souls!

So it’s safe to assume that we have all heard of facemasks and even used them. There are facemasks for acne, added moisture, and removal of excess oil. Facemasks also rid the skin of impurities, and help your pores. There are many different types of facemasks such as sheet masks, clay masks, and exfoliating masks. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have glowing, healthy, beautiful skin. What if I told you there are masks that do this for your hair?

That’s right, I’m talking about hair masks! Recently, I tried Davines Minu Illuminating Hair Mask, $21. 90.  I specifically decided to test this one because it’s ideal for colour treated hair. I knew using this hair mask would not damage the colour I have in my hair. I was so ready to heal my hair!

This hair mask is really easy to use. After I got out of the shower, I towel dried my hair. Then, I applied the mask. Although the directions say to leave the mask in your hair for 10-15 minutes, I felt that my hair would benefit from as much time as possible. So, I left the mask in my hair for exactly 15 minutes. I used a comb to ensure that the mask saturated every strand. Once my hair was combed, I rinsed out the mask and dried my hair.

I saw and felt the results of this masks immediately! My hair felt so soft, silky, and healthy! It even improved the life of my hair color! I definitely recommended this mask if you have color treated hair. It’s available at Walmart and on Amazon, but is currently sold out on Davies.com. If you don’t have color treated hair, here are some other masks you can use:

Tresemme Nourish & Replenish Mask, $6.

This mask contains coconut milk and aloe vera, so it’s very rich but beneficial. This mask works well if you have brittle ends or brittle strands from heat damage. After one use of this mask, your hair will feel softer and will begin to heal. You can find this mask at your local pharmacy!

Bee Mine Bee-U-Ti-Ful Moisturizing Deep Conditioner, $19.


This mask is ideal for curly hair. It’s infused with shea butter, organic coconut oil, and cupuaçu butter. Although these ingredients may seem heavy, they aren’t when it comes to your hair. The directions recommend you leave this mask on for 10 minutes. Once you rinse it out, your curly locks will feel completely moisturized and utterly soft and healed.
