My quest for perfect hair will probably never end. There's no product (opens in new tab) I won't try, a chop (opens in new tab) I won't take, a tool (opens in new tab) I won't use. If you're also on this perfect hair journey, I know you understand. While getting trims (opens in new tab) and using hair protectants (opens in new tab) is all well and good, it's easier said than done. Trying to grow out your hair  (opens in new tab)while also keeping it healthy and repairing years of damage from hot tools is a difficult task. If you find yourself searching high and low for a product that will seal split ends, stimulate growth, strengthen brittle strands and basically do it all, don't overlook the damage-amending powers of hair masks. And while there are countless hair masks that cater to every problem under the sun, a classic moisturizing mask that reverses damage can never be replaced.

With endless hair masks for damaged hair on the market to choose from, every price point and hair texture is taken into consideration in the options below. IMO, the masks you apply a few minutes or hours before showering that leave you with shiny, hydrated locks are the best. Here, the hair masks to get your #HairGoals underway.
