We’ve all probably given our hair a little extra TLC, but too much heat styling, colouring and over-processing will deplete your hair of any natural shine and moisture. Usually, hair masks that are left on for 10-20 minutes don’t tend to tackle your hair concerns. If you really want to reverse hair damage, you definitely need to use an overnight hair mask.
Think of an overnight hair mask as your routine hair mask, but slightly upgraded to give your hair what it really needs as you snooze. These formulas are meant to be worn for hours on end, all the while delivering the nutrients your hair needs to combat damage, excess frizz, dryness, split ends, and more.

This mask is a real game-changer if you’re trying to grow your hair or struggling to keep the ends of your hair in great condition.

Or even on holiday, apply in the morning for protection and then shampoo and condition after swimming.
If you struggle to find a mask that doesn’t weigh down your hair, or alternatively has enough oomph to really inject some moisture into coarser hair, then this hair mask is worth a look. Incredibly concentrated, you don’t need very much product at all to get good results so the pot lasts ages. Hair looks shinier and glossier after a few weeks’ of use.
