Which hair mask to choose? Obviously, women choose hair repair masks the most often. They want to repair, strengthen, and save their damaged hair. Still, a mask is a great choice from time to time even if your hair is in good condition. It will let it stay lovely and strong. Which hair mask to choose though? Our roundup of best products will help you out!

How to improve hair using a hair mask?

A hair mask is meant for reviving the hair but also instantly improving its looks. It’s made for special tasks. It takes action when a shampoo and conditioner fail. Definitely you should devote fifteen minutes a week to a quality hair mask. A small amount should be applied from mid-lengths, thoroughly rinsed out and then you move on to your usual blow-drying routine. To damage-proof the hair more effectively, we also advise you to get a heat protectant spray – it will prevent damage from high temps.



A keratin-high treatment from Nanoil is a best-selling hair mask. Ideal for weak, damaged hair which requires enhancement and revitalization. It’s been made for professional hair care at home. Users appreciate it for the top quality and high effectiveness in enhancing hair health and looks.

Nanoil Keratin Hair Mask is a deeply-repairing mask able to rebuild damage in the hair structure. It’s not the only thing making it an excellent choice, though. It is multi-purpose and fights many hair problems: fixes damage, reinforces, prevents split ends, controls frizz and static, maintains optimal hydration, nourishes, smooths and boosts gloss, plus softens the hair. The light consistency doesn’t weigh hair down so feel free to use it on heavy, greasy and easily weighed-down hair. Nanoil Keratin Mask combines some perfectly-balanced conditioning ingredients:

  • Keratin – it penetrates deeply to repair hair making it resilient and pretty again.
  • Panthenol, provitamin B5 – it makes sure hair is moisturized, delivers shine, and softens.


If you want to treat your hair to various ingredients, try other Nanoil masks — hydrating mask with algae extract, cleansing mask with charcoal or softening mask with argan oil. By adding them to your regimen, your hair will be fully taken care of thanks to proteins, emollients and humectants delivered through the masks. Nanoil masks have been designed to answer different needs of different hair types. Check them out on


Moroccanoil is famous for hair oil treatments but it also offers hair masks. Restorative Hair Mask is one of the popular picks – a revitalizing treatment for hair which is damaged from heat styling or chemical processing. It provides essential proteins, working quickly and effectively, but we definitely don’t like the price and the small volume.

Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask has a repairing effect, cares for hair, and restores its resilience. The formula is based on four exotic oils and hydrating acetic acid which abounds in calcium and magnesium ions, and is enriched with hydrolyzed proteins derived from plants. The beneficial ingredients found in the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask are: shea butter, argan oil, pequi oil, and canola oil. The mask has a nice consistency and scent.


Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Masque is from the Bamboo Smooth range which also includes shampoo, conditioner and hair oil treatment. It’s an intensively-smoothening mask which controls frizz and static. Perfect for the autumn when the air is very humid or for the winter when hair is exposed to extreme temperatures and dry air from heaters. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Masque helps take control of really unruly strands. It works for all hair types but must be used sparingly on thick and heavy hair (every two weeks) to avoid overburdening. It has a hydrating effect, keeping water molecules in hair. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi nourishes and adds smoothness too. Just one use is enough to get smoother and easier to brush hair.

The ingredients in Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi are worth noting for sure: volatile silicones, plus alcohols and glycerin which have a moisturizing effect. The formula is based on young bamboo shoot extract, UV filter, and provitamin B5 (panthenol). It’s free of mineral oil, parabens or phthalates, but unfortunately, it contains many preservatives and synthetics. 


Kerastase products are luxurious and popular at beauty parlors. Obviously you can use them at home as well. Elixir Ultime Masque is an oil-based nourishing treatment which strengthens, protects and makes hair more resistant to damage. Regularly applied, it makes hair softer, strikingly stronger and damage-proof. This mask will be effective on fine hair: it has a light and non-overburdening consistency.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime Masque is based on four oils (corn, argan, pracaxi and camellia oil) which nourish the hair, restore resilience and optimal hydration, plus prevent breakage and strengthen hair ends. The added mineral pigments are quite unusual. Unfortunately the formula includes preservatives and alcohols as well.
