You know what you get when you mix sun, sand, and surf? One really great summer weekend… and one really dry head of hair. The natural beachy-wave look only works for so long, as summertime can cause tresses to break, tangle, frizz, and lose shine.
The solution? Hair masks! Hair masks are a quick and easy way to soften and protect hair. Ideally they should be used year round, but they’re really worth their weight in gold during the harsh winter and summer months.
Here are some of our favorites:
Leonor Greyl Masque Orchidee: This fancy treatment is the closest I’ve come to a spa in a long time! It smells wonderful, is made from natural ingredients, and works best on dry, thick hair. For thinner hair, try the Leonor Greyl Masque Fleurs de Jasmin.

DevaCurl Heaven In Hair: If you have curly hair and 15-30 minutes, this deep conditioner helps hydrate the hair, keeping curls manageable and easy to style.

Bumble and bumble deeep: This once-a-week treatment is especially good for those with chemically treated hair. For best results, apply, wrap hair in a towel, and spend a little time in the sun (or a dryer or steam room – heat helps hair absorb the treatment)!

OGX Instant Repair Treatment Nourishing Coconut Milk – If you’re short on time and need an instant pick-me-up, this mask only needs 3-5 minutes in the shower. Bonus: It smells like a tropical vacation! Available at walgreens.com
Pantene PRO-V Weekly Rehab Créme: If you constantly put your hair through a barrage of heat treatments (drying, straightening, curling), this weekly treatment helps reduce protein loss and will keep strands strong against your daily heat routine. Available at walgreens.com
