Browse through our top 12 picks and start spring with your healthiest hair yet…
1. Transition Mask by Pattern
Packed with white tea and Manuka honey, Pattern's Transition Mask is fabulous if you're taking a break from protective styles or chemical treatments and want to let your natural curls flourish. It helps prevent breakage, reduces shedding, and gives your strands added moisture. Apply it to dry hair, leave it on for roughly 15 minutes, then rinse off and follow up with shampoo and conditioner.
2. HoliRoots Hair Oil by Fable and Mane
Fable and Mane’s award-winning oil is infused with natural goodies such as powerful adaptogen Ashwagandha, ground plant remedy Dashmool, and castor oil, which all work to strengthen and nourish the hair. We love this formula because it’s lightweight, vegan, and promotes healthy scalp circulation. Massage it into the roots in a circular motion, and leave on overnight for best results.
3. Gold Lust Transformative Masque by Oribe
Created with the brand’s signature complex (watermelon, lychee and edelweiss flower), white tea extract, antioxidants, biotin and more, this luxe mask works to revive your hair’s elasticity and natural shine. Not to mention, the beautiful fragrance—like all of Oribe’s products—is the cherry on top. Massage product into the hair, leave on for as long as you like, then rinse off.
4. Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil
Gisou’s hair oil has become a cult favourite—and all for good reason. With a blend of vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids, star ingredient honey helps to strengthen and repair dry, tired hair. We also love that this little bottle of wonder can be used as an overnight treatment, a styling product, and as a mask.
5. Virtue Healing Oil
A little goes a long way with this Healing Oil by Virtue. It features a first-of-its-kind whole, human keratin protein, along with vitamin E, Tahitian gardenia flower, and Kalahari melon seed oil to protect the hair from environmental damage, and against moisture loss. Shake the product well to activate the formula, and work a few drops throughout damp or dry hair.

Apply the product to wet hair, leave in for roughly five minutes, then wash off. Can be used one to two times a week instead of a conditioner.
7. Ouai Fine to Medium Hair Treatment Mask
It smells delightful and it works wonders. That’s really all you need to know about Ouai’s treatment mask.
