Crucial Help For Damaged Hair

Just like most of us don't drink enough water throughout the day, our daily conditioners probably don't give our hair the hydration it needs. That's why it's essential to do an intensive treatment at least once a week.

One of our favorites: Ellin Lavar Textures ReconstructMasque.

This hair mask is a serious source of moisture and much-needed protein and amino acids, which help environmentally abused hair return to a shiny, happy state.

Its five featured botanicals-brazil nut oil, pequi oil, cupuaçu seed butter, maracuja (or passion fruit), and grapeseed flavonoids and tocopherols-are especially beneficial for curly and wavy hair.

Ellin Lavar says there's no way to use this too often, so if your hair is especially needy, go right ahead and use it almost every day-it's only $8.
