We all want smooth, soft hair but with the scorching summer days, our hair can take a real beating. Hair masks are the perfect solution to add bounce and health to your hair. But which masks to actually use? DIY masks are still popular and many women still prefer the age old tradition of olive and coconut oils. These often leave the hair greasy and weighed down. Hair irons, heated rollers and colour hair dyes also have a huge impact on the scalp and hair follicles, leaving it dry and frizzy. Keratin based masks offer a long-lasting moisture treatment for frizzy or dry hair. Curly hair is the most difficult to manage and masks with coconut and argan oil help tame curls and smooth hair. Greasy and oily hair may need a mask with clay ingredients that will absorb excess oil and leave the hair more manageable.
These are some of the more popular hair masks this summer:

Theravine Hair Protein Cream
A deep nourishing and hydrating treatment, enriched with essential oils and anti-oxidant rich grape ingredients, that soothes irritable scalp and strengthens and protects the hair to restore vitality.

This is an intensive moisturizing treatment for dry, porous and damaged hair. It contains micro proteins from the moringa seed extract that penetrates deep into the hair to restore the moisture balance and damage caused by chemical, mechanical and environmental stress.

This is the perfect after-care for sun stressed hair. Contains essential minerals, Vitamin E and grape seed extracts, which intensively conditions the hair and protects it against sun damage. Apply mask to the hair and wrap in a hot towel for five minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water and style. Hair is left soft, silky and manageable.

Masks should only be used once a week as an intense treatment. Too much product will just be a waste and can leave the hair oily and weighed down. Use just enough products for your length of hair and leave in for a minimum of 20 minutes. Hair masks are suitable for anyone wanting to treat and protect dry, brittle or chemical treated hair.
