If you’ve been on holiday…

Holiday hair tends to be a nightmare as the sun, sea and chlorine wreak havoc on even the healthiest of heads, leaving hair brittle and weak. Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque is an intensive post-holiday hero, specially formulated for parched strands. A restorative blend of coconut oil, tamanu oil, shea butter and morikue protein hydrate and smooth while anti-oxidants vitamin E, green tea and sunflower oil protect against free radical damage.
 

If you have product build-up…

Hair spray, dry shampoo and styling creams deposit on your scalp and can build up over time despite regular washing. If you’re finding that your shampoo isn’t quite doing the trick, try a hair scrub like Grow Gorgeous’ Scalp Detox. Use once or twice a week as a pre-wash treatment before shampooing; simply massage the scrub into your scalp and then leave for 5 minutes. It’s normal to feel a tingling sensation as the mask starts to work. Rinse thoroughly and resume your normal hair washing routine.
 

If you’re on a budget…

Healthy hair needn’t cost the earth – Bleach London Reincarnation Mask is as efficacious as it’s costlier counterparts. It contains all the necessary nourishment for severely stressed out strands, including wheat protein and sunflower seed extract, and tackles a magnitude of hair issues including dryness, frizz, split ends, dullness and breakage. Considering it’s under a tenner, we’re coining it a miracle.
 

If you have curly hair…

Curly hair tends to be drier and unrulier, which is why it needs a stronger, more potent treatment to penetrate deeper. Look for one packed full of nourishing oils like Boucleme Intensive Moisture Treatment. Rich in a combination of keratin and conditioning oils including omegas, marula, camellia and super hydrator sea buckthorn oil, with weekly use your curls will become smoother and more manageable. Ideally, you’ll want to leave it on for up to half an hour, but if you’re in a rush just pop a plastic shower cap on to intensify the treatment and speed up the results.
 

If you have weak hair and split ends…

Protein is the building block of healthy, resilient hair, so integrate Evo Mane Attention into your weekly routine and you’ll never look back. Wheat protein works to reconstruct brittle, split and damaged hair, fortifying each strand form root to tip. The result is, shinier, stronger strands.
 

If your hair has been coloured…

Colour fade isn’t exclusive to blondes – anyone who’s coloured their hair will experience a decline in vibrancy and tone with time. Combat this with a targeted treatment like Redken’s Colour Extend Magnteics Mask it attracts and traps colour molecules into the hair fibre to preserve and extend your colour, all the while delivering a much-needed protein hit to dyed hair. Be sure to use a sulphate-free shampoo so you don’t undo all your good work.
 

If you’re trying to grow your hair…

Aside from general care, look for a product specifically designed to promote hair growth; Phillip Kingsley’s Stimulating Scalp Mask is our go-to. A miracle mask for thinning or very fine hair, the clever formula has a potent mixture of vitamins and minerals specifically chosen for their stimulating and growth cultivating properties. Iron, magnesium and zinc boost collagen, keratin and elastin, while camphor, peppermint and menthol boost blood circulation in the scalp encouraging growth. Finally, vitamins E, B5 and H support cell development, allowing the ingredients to penetrate deep into the scalp.
 

If you have greasy hair…

Those with oilier hair types tend to steer clear of heavy hair masks, but you needn’t avoid them, just be mindful of the ingredients. Rather than reaching for an oil-based treatment, follow the footsteps of your skincare routine and opt for one with clarifying ingredients like clay. L’oreal Elvive Clay Oily Roots Pre-Shampoo Mask absorbs excess oil and impurities which are weighing the hair down and making it appear link and lank. Before washing, massage in and leave it to work for five minutes, then rinse.
 

If you have afro hair…

Afro hair has a whole host of specific needs, which is why you’ll need a really concentrated mask. Naturally it is weaker, drier and more susceptible to damage, especially if you are regularly using heat on it. Look out for formulas rich in oils; Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm has murumuru oil, olive oil and shea butters to bring back elasticity and recover severely damaged hair. Use two to three times a week and leave it on for 10 minutes, you won’t know how you lived before it.
 

If you’re blonde…

More often than not, blonde colouring will fade, becoming brassy and yellow. Counteract warmer tones with Davines Alchemic Silver Conditioner, a purple mask that contains colour pigments which help to enhance and extend the life of your colour. It’s also packed full of milk proteins that hydrate and renew your hair, leaving it softer and shinier.
 

If you have fine hair…

Created with sparse strands in mind, Kerastase Densifique Masque Densite is a transformative treatment for finer hair that plumps and builds body thanks to state-of-the-art densifying molecules and hyaluronic acid, which thicken without leaving hair feeling heavy.
