Do you have dry hair? If it feels rough, tangles easily and is always dull, chances are the answer is “yes”. You don’t want to leave dry hair untreated either, as it can become even more fragile, leading to chronic breakage.

Fortunately, for an intensive nourishing treatment, there are all sorts of hair masks available out there. And although they have a few other functions as well, hair masks are most celebrated as dryness fighters.

Dry hair and scalp sufferers are encouraged to apply a mask at least once a week as part of their haircare routine. In addition to overall healthier hair, the pumped-up moisture levels of masks translate into softer, more lustrous, more manageable locks. No more hard-to-control frizz!

The good news? The professionals have your back with these five high-performance hair masks, which are backed by extensive research and designed specifically for dry hair.

  • Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral
  • A little Masque Magistral – a coin-size amount in fact – goes a long way in providing nutrition for dry to severely dry hair. Natural ingredient Benzoin Resin penetrates hair fibres and restores from within, while wood sugar xylose provides heat protection. To use, apply to the lengths and ends of washed hair and leave on for 5–10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

  • Dark and Lovely Amla Legend Replenishing Hair Mask
  • As part of Dark and Lovely’s Amla Legend range, the Replenishing Hair Mask takes full advantage of an age-old Indian beauty secret: amla oil. The Amla Legend promise is that its rich, ultra-replenishing treatments can undo two years of damage in two weeks. Rejuvenating from deep down, this mask conditions each strand from root to tip, combatting dryness, dullness and breakage.

  • Mizani Supreme Oil Satin Crème Moisturizing Mask
  • Packed full of beloved natural oils like jojoba and sesame (which work on the hair’s surface), along with avocado, olive, apricot and argan (which penetrate deep down), this Moisturizing Mask is an intense multi-functional treatment for dry hair. Suitable for all curl types, it hydrates, smooths, shines and protects against damage.

  • Matrix Biolage HydraSource Mask
  • This revitalising mask forms part of the wider Biolage HydraSource range, which optimises hair’s moisture balance. Inspired by the never-dry aloe plant, this mask instantly and deeply conditions hair, reviving dry strands so they’re shinier and more manageable. It works even on colour-treated hair, and is recommended for use on wet hair twice a week instead of conditioner.

  • L’Oréal Professionnel Masque
  • Designed for dry and undernourished hair, this intense repair masque combines the optimal hydration benefits of glycerol and natural coconut oil. Applied to towel-dried hair for 3–5 minutes before rinsing, the masque has a dual function: it cleans and leaves hair softer, shinier and supple.
