Kérastase Nutritive 8H Magic Night Hair Serum
If you like to wash your hair at night, this serum is a must-try. After showering/shampooing, apply it onto damp mid-lengths and ends before bed and wake up with detangled, smooth strands — no rinsing required. Dry strands seriously have nothing on this nourishing formula.
Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Repairative Hair Mask
For hair that looks dull and could use some moisture and shine, opt for this mask with olive fruit and avocado oils. Apply a liberal amount of the mask to the ends of towel-dried hair ends for three minutes. Rinse out, and you’ll immediately feel and see a difference in your hair texture and shine.
Sol de Janeiro Triple Brazilian Butter Hair Repair Treatment Mask
Dealing with split ends? Try this butter treatment mask. It’s best for medium, thick hair types that deal with dryness, frizz, split ends and breakage. Infused with cupuaçu, murumuru and tacumã butter, it locks in moisture and keeps hair free of knots and feeling velvety.
Give color-damaged strands a reparative treatment that will make them look and feel healthier. This perfector is easy: Simply apply on damp hair from root to tip, leave on for ten minutes and rinse out. Your hair will look stronger, healthier and frizz-free.
