When my hair feels like it needs a little extra love, I always reach for a hair mask. Hair masks have been essential in my hair care routine ever since I decided to wear my hair long – they give my hair an extra boost of healthy hydration in less than 30 minutes! Since we’ve been in quarantine, I’ve been spending a little more time on self care and finding that a nourishing but affordable hair mask is my go-to when I draw a bath.
If you don’t already use hair masks or are unfamiliar with them, hair masks are a great extra step in your hair routine to really bring some extra nutrients to your hair. I usually will brush my hair, dampen it, and comb the hair mask through using a large, flat comb. I like to leave my hair masks on for as long as possible, but if you’re in a time crunch, even 5 min will do – and wash out! The end result is smooth, frizz-free, tangle-free hair.
I’ve been using different hair masks from Not Your Mother’s for years and am so excited to partner with them for this blog post. Here are some of my favorite NYM masks I’ve been obsessing over!
My go-to mask for ages! This mask not only works to give my hair some extra shine, but also smells amazing. I also love the Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Mask because I can apply it to my roots without my hair getting greasy – it not only nourishes the dryer ends of my hair but also focuses on my roots. This baby comes in a 10 oz jar for $8.99 at Ulta and gives me 4-5 uses, which will probably be closer to 8-10 with medium length hair, which is a STEAL!
I’m always looking for easy ways to detangle my hair without pulling out or breaking strands and this mask is a great detangling solution that lasts multiple washes for me. I don’t get huge knots in my hair very often, but when I do, this is always what I reach for! You can get this refreshing, citrusy mask for only $8.99 at Ulta!
I always bring a few of these single-use packs when we travel and love the way this mask refreshes my hair after constant styling. It has a sweet, fruity aroma and makes my hair super soft. This pack is only $2.99 at Ulta and is enough for my whole head!
Let me know if you try out any of these masks or any other ones from the Not Your Mother’s lineup! X
