Natural hair products are growing by the day and natural hair brands are finding ways to give you exactly what you need especially if suffering from hair damage. It’s easy to find creams, gels and conditioners that offer over 1000 hairstyles to rock while natural but not all offer the price you may be happy with. Many of us are on a budget but still want healthy hair and the best hair masks to help get us there.
Masks for hair are hair treatments excellent at fighting dry, brittle hair and increasing hair elasticity. You can make your own but not everyone is into DIY hair products or have the time to create them. They are typically thicker than deep conditioners with heavy doses of conditioning ingredients such as butters, oils, quats (quaternium-; detangling agents) and silicones. They are combined to create a masque with ultra-hydrating and reparative properties. They are great but quite often expensive and what if that’s not in your budget? Well, I’ve got you covered because despite being inexpensive, here are some of the best masks to give your natural hair all kinds of life!
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioning Treatment
A favorite among budget-conscious natural hair women, Aussie’s deep conditioning treatment is by no means skimping on the ingredients in this super popular product. It has three times the moisturizing power and transform dry hair into silky, shiny strands in 3 short minutes. With a nourishing and intensely hydrating formula, made with a touch of Australian Aloe, Jojoba and Sea Kelp; this treatment is a consistent winner of top beauty product awards.
Here’s a quick video by vlogger Afro Khadisiac using this popular treatment. You get to see how well this product works (she loved it) as well as how to properly apply and use the hair mask. I really need to give this one a try.
Carol’s Daughter Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair Mask
A wonderful brand that has been around forever, Carol’s Daughter is often perceived at kind of pricey. Not so for this mask! Under $15, this Softening hair treatment has a unique blended formula with Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, Aloe Juice and Cactus Flower which absorbs excess oil and leaves your hair revitalized, soft, recharged and ready to take on the rest of you day. Perfect for dull, brittle and over-worked hair.
Neutrogena Triple Moisture Professional Deep Recovery Hair Mask
I’ve loved this line since I was a teen and used their products for my skin. Neutrogena’s Deep recovery hair mask can be used as a weekly treatment for soft, lustrous and shining hair. Three naturally derived extracts work on the hair strand to defy dryness. Olive penetrates to the center, Meadowfoam Seed helps moisturize the middle and Sweet Almond wraps the surface.
OGX Shea Soft & Smooth Creamy Hair Butter
Another brand that naturals love (my daughter included) OGX’s hair butter mask has an intensely moisture-rich, creamy blend with Shea butter, agave nectar and coconut oil. It helps to smooth and soften coarse tresses, for hair that looks healthy with a silky, shiny glow.
Pantene Pro-V Expert Collection Age Defy Rejuvenating Hydration Hair Masque
We love lines that catered to relaxed hair in years passed but have up their game for natural hair. Pantene’s hair masque helps restore healthy hydration levels and provides resilience against breakage with their rich, creamy formula.
Designed with Olay Anti-Aging experts so this is ideal for older women who may be experiencing dryness.
