When it comes to masks you shouldn’t forget your hair too, with hairdresser Anthony Nader advising incorporating one into your routine when “your hair isn’t performing and not giving your hair style the longevity”.

“Whether your hair is natural, frizzy/course, coloured or highly bleached, applying a mask once a week can combat dryness and feed strands the goodness that is lacking,” Anthony, who is the creative director of Sydney salon Raw Hair by Anthony Nader, says.

International hairstylist and Joico’s global artistic director Richard Mannah told news.com.au this mask is the “best one I’ve ever used” — and plenty of shoppers also agree.

The mask promises to restore colour and shine after just one use, as well as reducing future breakage and making tresses softer.

Containing nourishing argan and manchetti oils, the Joico mask is suitable for brunette and blonde coloured hair.

Five-star reviewers describe the mask as their “secret weapon” for coloured hair, with one shopper writing: “My hair is damaged through regular colouring, sea air and sunshine.

“I found this product was excellent, easy to use and left my hair shiny, soft and manageable.”

“This little gem really does perform,” says Anthony. “Apply a few drops into your palms and glide through the troubled areas and then style your hair as usual.”

The treatment is a heat-activated serum that protects against split ends, all you need to do is apply it to towel-dried hair before styling.

No list of the best hair products would be complete without the inclusion of Olaplex, the cult haircare brand loved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Drew Barrymore.

Suitable for all hair types, this mask works to intensely moisturise hair and help repair visibly damaged locks.

“So I don’t usually do reviews. But this product is amazing. My hair was bleached and heat damaged but feels so silky soft,” one five-star review reads.

As someone with blonde hair, one of the pains with oil-based treatments is that they can leave hair looking unintentionally greasy.

Anthony recommends this argan oil mask as it is “super light and doesn’t leave even the finest hair strands appearing greasy or dirty”.

“It is perfect for all hair types and works really well; I’ve found it on extra curly hair that needs maximum shine,” he added.

The Australian-made treatment is also vegan and paraben/sulfate free.

This hair mask from celebrity stylist Jen Aiken‘s own brand has a cult following for a reason. Containing shea butter, panthenol and hydrolysed keratin, this mask targets frizz and split ends to leave hair stronger and hydrated.

Suitable for fine hair, this mask is a great option if other hair treatments make your tresses feel weighed down afterwards.

This is my all-time favourite hair mask as it gives my hair an instant pick me up, especially in the colder months when my hair is especially dry.

It’s the kind of mask that I notice when I haven’t been using it as consistently as I should, as when I’m diligent it delivers ultra shiny hair and less frizz that doesn’t need as much heat styling.

The five minute mask contains argan oil, behentrimonium chloride, glycerin and linseed extract to hydrate hair as well as restoring shine.

Fans of the mask say it is “brilliant for dry ends” and an overall “game changer” for dry hair.

“Moroccanoil intense hydrating mask is hands down the best mask I’ve used, it doesn’t leave your hair feeling heavy or greasy, amazing!” one five star reviewer says.
