Is frizz the bane of your hair? Well skip your conditioner and soak your tresses twice a week in this award-winning, weightless high performer.

Blondies, rejoice: you can keep your cool with this glorious, violet-hued treatment. Also suitable for silver and grey tresses, the salon-service-in-a-jar mask is packed with bond-curing technology, plant butters and vegan protein to hydrate, repair and of course rid of any yellow and unwanted brassy hues. It helps tame baby hairs too and works beautifully on both colour-treated and natural blondes. Simply use it once a week instead of your conditioner and let your hair do the talking.
CeremoniaAceite de Moska Scalp Oil, $28.00
Best For Dry & Sensitive Scalps
This gorgeous product may not resemble a typical hair mask, but it delivers some mighty results. Think of it as a serum for your scalp – because hair health really does begin at the root. If you’re struggling with a dry and sensitive scalp, spread 2 to 3 drops of this award winner across your scalp and let it work its magic for 15 minutes before showering. It works especially well with Ceremonia Scalp Masajeador, $16.00, which exfoliates the scalp and invigorates a healthy blood flow.
BriogeoCurl Charisma™ Rice Amino + Avocado Hydrating & Defining Mask, $39.00
Best For Wavy, Curly & Coily Hair (2A To 4C)
We wouldn’t blame you if you were to initially confuse the ingredients of this serious hydrator and curl lover with those of a very healthy meal. This cocktail of nature’s finest ingredients (avocado, castor, chia and flax seed oils, as well as rice amino acids and tomato fruit ferment) helps deliver maximum nourishment and enhance curl definition. Leave it on for 10 minutes after shampooing your hair to free the curl and ride those waves.
OuaiThick Hair Treatment Masque, $38.00
Best For Thick Hair & Damage, Split Ends, Breakage, Dryness & Frizz
If you see your thick hair as more of a curse than a blessing, this mask saviour may just be the answer to your hair prayers. Formulated with a rich blend of illipe and shea butters, almond, olive, macadamia oils and hydrolysed keratin, this beauty editor approved treatment is, quite frankly, a bit of an overachiever. It’s great for managing thick manes, but also fights frizz, heals damage and delivers a burst of moisture, smoothness and shine in a matter of minutes.
AvedaColour Enhance Blue Malva Conditioner, N/A
Best For Coloured Hair
Raise your hand if you love a treatment that pushes back that next hair appointment a little longer and is packed-full of shea butters and strawberry, apricot and raspberry seed oils? Four shades – cool brown, warm brown, cool blonde and warm blonde – make up this colour and shine boosting range, which works as a deep conditioning treatment to take those coloured tresses from rough and dull to silky and vibrant after just one wash.
Melanin HaircareMulti-Use Softening Leave In Conditioner, $25.00
Best For All Hair Types, Especially Curly & Coily Hair
Not exactly a mask per se, but so much more – we love a multi-tasker and couldn’t not include this sell-out sensation that can be used in so many ways. Formula wise, it’s bursting with natural extracts and top strengthening and conditioning agents like ProVitamin B5, bamboo extract and wheat amino acids. As for results, the list is impressive – it instantly hydrates, softens and conditions, while also stimulating hair growth, increasing shine and creating a healthy scalp environment. So, whether you use it as a deep conditioner, styling cream or detangler, prepare to get addicted.
