Do-it-yourself hair masks for dry hair are the perfect way to restore lost moisture and shine without the extra cost of special hair care products. Plus, these masks are a quick fix for your hair problems!
“Hair masks are intense conditioners that have more fatty acids and lipids in them which can return moisture to the hair and help protect it,” said James Corbett, celebrity hairstylist of James Corbett Studio in New York City and color director for Clairol. “When the hair is healthy, the cuticle stays closed, which means less frizz and your color looks better because light reflects off your hair. Masks can help repair what styling and the environment takes out.”
