As a self-proclaimed hair coloring junkie, I've tried pretty much every hue I wanted—from blonde, blue, pink, purple, green, silver, ashy periwinkle, and even split dye a few months back! (I blame quarantine, lol). If there's one thing that saved my strands from being a fried, straw-like mess, it's a hair mask.
ICYDK, a hair mask is just like your regular ol' conditioner but has oils, butters, and lipids in a heavier concentration. The hydrating and nourishing formula is left on your strands longer to give you salon-like results. You can use it once a week to revive your tresses, but I use it every two days since my locks get tangled and frizzy easily.
If you're looking for some recos, don't worry—I got you! Keep on reading for the best hair masks you can use for your chemically-treated locks:
