15 of the Best Hair Masks for Healthy Wedding Day Hair

Is your hair looking dull, dry or frizzy? We know the feeling. Give it a bit of TLC with one of these amazing at-home hair treatments...

Who doesn’t want long, luscious and lightweight locks on their wedding day? Most brides want to know how to grow their hair faster and looking healthier in time for saying ‘I do’.

One of the most effective ways of doing that is to load up on the conditioner. Straightening your hair religiously, switching up your hair colour and exposing it to the elements can leave it looking flat, dry and brittle (*cry*), so it’s super important to reach beyond your bog-standard conditioner and give your hair some TLC.

Hair masks can revive and restore lacklustre locks with just one use and, over time, can improve the health of your hair dramatically. In fact, they have a whole host of active ingredients which regular conditioners just don’t offer.

If you’re wondering how to apply your hair mask, follow our simple steps. First, towel dry your freshly shampooed hair. Then, apply the product through the middle and end lengths using a comb or Tangle Teezer to ensure its evenly distributed. Once that’s done, leave for the recommended amount of time before rinsing out thoroughly. Achieving Rapunzel-like hair is totally easy!

No matter what your hair type or condition, our round-up of the best hair masks will include something for you.

1. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – £19
