Best Hair Masks for Damaged Hair

These top hair masks for damaged hair are sure to leave you with shiny, conditioned, and beautiful locks.

No matter the style, type, texture, or condition of your hair, it could always use a little extra love. We put our hair through a lot on the daily; and just like your skin and body, it could use some pinpointed attention once in a while. 

Most hair masks for damaged hair are all about the moisture, which your ends are definitely stripped of after a long day. Besides cutting them off, the best thing you can do for your split ends is to give them care in the form of a mask. But don't discriminate against the attention your scalp needs as well. 

Conditioning is proactive for every inch of your hair. Even men can use hair masks, and they only take 3-20 minutes, depending on your preference. These masks are a little more specialized in rejuvenating hair than a homemade milk and honey mask.

Think about how little time your hair gets when you condition it in the shower, especially when you're in a rush; what a tease! Give it some extra love with this list of the best hair masks for damaged hair. 

Coconut Oil Hair Mask by Majestic Pure

Made of 100 percent natural ingredients, this hair mask is made to treat your hair by not only improving texture, but manageability, shine, and softness. Loaded with vitamin E and fatty acids, the coconut oil mask repairs even the worst damage you've done to your hair. Curly, straight, textured, colored, or fine hair will all be restored after just one use. 

Massage the product into damp hair, from roots to ends. It only takes five minutes for the restorative mask to do its magic. This is one of the best hair masks for damaged hair that won't break the bank at only $12.95. 

Fortifying Protein Hair Mask and Deep Conditioner by Arvazallia

This deep conditioning hair treatment is meant to give volume, strength, and growth to brittle hair. For $16, Arvazallia has released a hair mask with a protein therapy formula. Ingredients include Aloe Vera, Macadamia Oil, Argan oil, and Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein. Arvazallia promises hair growth and prevention from both breakage and hair loss. 

Also, if you don't see a difference in your hair after the first treatment, you get your money back! So it definitely can't hurt to give it a shot. 

Restore Mask Treatment by Living Proof

This Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment will leave you with strong, shiny, and healthy hair thanks to the Healthy Hair Molecule Restore System. The mask does so by restoring damaged cuticles, protecting the strands from damage in the future, and renewing moisture to dry hair. 

You only have to use this hair mask for damaged hair once or twice a week to see these results. Simply leave the mask in for five minutes after massaging the product into clean, wet hair from the roots to the ends. It's even promised to strengthen hair up to 20 times in two weeks! 

Intense Repair Deep Conditioner by Hairgurt

Looking for some intense repair therapy? Try this hair mask from Hairgurt. It's free from paragons, harsh salt systems, harmful fragrances, and artificial coloring like some not so great hair masks for damaged hair are known for having. It also smells delicious, with an almond honey scent. Sweet almond oil is even an ingredient. 

Recommended to be used twice a week, but can be used up to as many times as your hair needs, this deep conditioner contains bio-keratin that will help both hair strength and growth. Use after shampooing hair and leave in for up to 10 minutes. Two tubes are $20!

Hair Mayo by TONYMOLY

After just three minutes, this "hair mayo" will strengthen your hair from root to end with enriched oils. Even the worst split ends will be enriched with moisture and shine. Say goodbye to frizzy, brittle hair with the help of multiple vitamins and Shea butter. Even bleach is no match for TONYMOLY's hair nutrition pack. 

Smooth Extender Nourishing Smoothing Masque by Sexy Hair

Rich with coconut oil, Sexy Hair's smoothing masque not only reduces frizz, but renourishes hair that has been through a lot. It can be used on straightened, colored, and weak hair or extensions for renewal. 

This hair mask for damaged hair is known for penetrating deep into the hair cortex for both scalp and hair strength. Use two to three times a week, and rinse the product off after three to five minutes of treatment, for best results. Get yours for under twenty bucks!

Cleansing Mask with Lemon by Christophe Robin

Much more expensive than your typical drugstore brand hair products, priced at $49, Christophe Robin's high-end cleansing mask with lemon is designed to maintain color vibrancy, hydrate follicles, and exfoliate the scalp, all while cleansing. 

Apply all over wet hair and leave on for up to 20 minutes, depending on how damaged your hair might be. Also, continue adding some water during this process and repeat until the product is rinsed out. Repeat this ritual as many times as necessary throughout the month. 


Bb.Hairdresser's Invisible Oil by Bumble and bumble

Bumble and bumble's balm-to-oil pre-shampoo masque is different than your typical hair mask for damaged hair. Geared toward hair types who are wavy to curly and medium to thick, the mask is meant to be warmed up between your hands for preparation, dispersed onto dead ends or dry strands, and left on for 20 minutes, prior to washing with shampoo and conditioner. This hair mask for damaged hair should be done once a week. It's recommended to be used with Bb's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. 

It's promised to supply brittle hair with hydration and nourishment from transformative oils, leaving you with manageable and protected locks!

Damage Repair by Tony & Guy

One of the best brands for hair masks for damaged hair is Tony & Guy. Need a mask that isn't going to just act as a second conditioner? This intense reconstruction formula is best for hair that needs special care. After just one use, customers have raved about silk-like results. And for only $22, rejuvenated hair is well worth the five-minute treatments.  

Signature Moisture Masque by ORIBE

Ending the list of the best hair masks for damaged hair with a bang, this high-end product might be out of your wallet's comfort zone, pricing at $63, but if you ever get the chance to give it a shot, you're never going to want to go back to your normal hair's texture. 

Oribe's signature concoction treats all types of damage, defends hair from future stress, provides UV protection, prevents aging, and supplies distressed hair with shine, strength, conditioning, and moisture. Need we say any more?
