Veganism is one of life’s more noble pursuits, but it’s not without its tribulations. While abstinence from animal products in terms of food has become increasingly achievable, they still lurk in other areas – even hair masks. Favoured for its strengthening properties, keratin, for example, is not vegan. So does this mean that vegans must forgo hair masks entirely? With the existence of vegan hair masks, absolutely not. Besides, not all vegans need a hair mask with strengthening properties. On that note, here are the best vegan hair masks for all hair types.
Life is stressful in general, so it’s hardly surprising that your hair should be stressed too. But while solutions to life’s stresses can feel utterly elusive, there is one for your hair’s: Fable & Mane’s HoliRoots hair mask. In spite of its banana and coconut cream formulation, however, it’s not edible – those ingredients are for preventing dandruff and fortifying each strand respectively.
As fun as they can be to manually remove, split ends are never desirable. And since lockdown forced hairdressers to close, you probably have more now than ever. With the ability to mend 96% of split ends when used correctly, Sol de Janeiro’s Triple Brazillian Butter hair treatment is an incredibly effective weapon against them. We guess you’ll just have to do something else when you’re bored.
Even hair that could be defined as ‘normal’ will benefit from a hair mask because even ‘normal’ hair gets dry occasionally. And the Coconut & Shea hair mask from Faith in Nature will be just the remedy.
One problem with many hair masks is that they aren’t always suited to those of us with fine hair. But no one should have to endure greasy as they strive for gorgeous. Luckily, Maria Nila’s Pure Volume hair mask contains vitamin B5 to volumize hair while moisturising it.
Colouring hair can, unfortunately, cause untold damage. But with Garnier’s Ultimate Blends Goji hair mask at your service, there’s no need to stop.
Sometimes, our hair can frustrate us so much that we are left simply wanting to cut it all off. Such drastic measures are unnecessary with the Game Changer hair mask by We Are Paradoxx involved, however. It offers the exact rejuvenation you need to give your hair the love it deserves.
You may scoff at the concept of sun-damaged hair when even the arrival of spring remains slippery and foreign holidays seem distant, but the truth is that – closely followed by summer – spring will come and holidays will happen. To that end, it’s useful to be prepared. And that’s why we recommend investing in Aveda’s after-sun hair mask for both.
With great power comes great responsibility, and that's why those of us with curly hair need a mask to make the best of it. This one by Maui Moisture will gives yours a shine and buoyancy quite unlike anything else.
Our spirits have taken somewhat of a beating throughout the pandemic, so it’s comforting to know that the Rose & Geranium Radiance mask by L’Oréal Paris Botanicals exists to combat dull hair – while we ourselves reckon with the rest.
In need of strength? Look no further than Wild Science Lab’s Root Therapy. Its ingredients of hemp seed oil, avocado oil and shea butter – amongst other things – will work to strengthen your hair and make it as manageable as possible.
