8 Hair Masks & Deep Conditioners That Revitalize Dry, Damaged Hair

Here are the best deep conditioners to keep in your beauty drawer for hair-mergencies.

Hair

I recently decided to highlight my hair with the Pintura hand painting method. While I love my hair color, I did have some damage to my normally healthy hair.

Waking up to chunks of my hair coming out was not ideal, but luckily it wasn't enough for me to panic. Instead, I did what I do best — gave my hair some extra TLC with H2O and a deep conditioner.

I know that breakage post any service isn't normal and since the stylist who did my hair wasn't of much help. The writer in me researched deep conditioners that are good for restoring damaged, color-treated hair for myself and for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. I also reached out to other curly stylists to get their recommendations on what to use and added those brands to this list.

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask

This mask was a staple when my hair was relaxed because it just worked. For added benefits (for this and any conditioner), add a shower cap and sit under the dryer for 15 to 20 minutes for deeper hydration.

EDEN BodyWorks JojOba Monoi Deep Conditioner

Amazon

After being introduced to EDEN BodyWorks at BeautyCon two years ago, I fell in love with their deep conditioner. Made with Coconut, Jojoba, and Monoi, the triple threat can help restore hair experiencing damage from over-processing, heat damage, and dryness that can plague natural hair.

Ouidad Curl Recovery™ Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask

Ouidad

Adding new products to my hair care regimen is always a fun experiment. At the recommendation of one of my coily hair icons, I invested in this mask. With ingredients like Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, Ouidad says this mask helps the hair regain elasticity and manageability. I'm here to tell you it does just that. My hair has never felt better.

$44

TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask

Amazon

My friend and fellow naturalista recommended this brand to me. Once I saw the rave reviews, I added this "miracle" mask to my Amazon shopping cart without a second thought.

Olapex N°5 Bond Maintenance™ Conditioner

Olapex

Olapex is used in salons (this was recommended to me by a curly stylist) and offers four products to consumers that aren't pros. Their Bond Maintenance Conditioner is one of those. The conditioner helps restore broken hair bonds and is safe to be used on color-treated tresses.

When I saw that Elaine Welteroth used this conditioner, I had to check it out. Now, the price tag might make you reconsider it, but the mask helps restore hair elasticity, and repairs split ends.

Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Rehydration Treatment Masque

SheaMoisture

I am thankful I had this in my shower because it has been a lifesaver. The day I noticed the clumps of hair falling out from my ends, I got in the shower and used this. My dry hair felt like itself after rinsing and adding my leave-in. I know this isn't the solution to the damage, but it helped a lot.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
