One of the best ways to moisturize and revitalize your strands is with a hair mask. This one by Camille Rose has been my favorite all year. I can talk about hair masks forever and they may get a dedicated post in the future. This deep treatment is full of great ingredients like cocoa and mango butter and aloe vera juice. Alone these ingredients are great for adding moisture, smoothing hair cuticles and adding a gorgeous shine to your hair but together they’re even better.

We all have left conditioner in our hair intentionally or by accident but with this product, it doesn’t matter. I love that this product isn’t too heavy but packs a big punch of moisture. Shea Moisture has been a brand I loved for a long time and this definitely one of my favorites by them. This product does soo much but what I love most is how soft it makes my hair.
Why You’ll Love it: It will make detangling a breeze, smells great and will make your hair super soft. Oh, and your hair will thank you for the hydration.
How to Use: Anyway you want. I tend to use it more as a leave in conditioner and it’s great to use in your hair before you hit the beach or pool.
I have to start off by saying this product smells AMAZING! A little goes a long way with this product. It is a hair milk so it can be a bit heavy but it reminds me more of a hair butter. I’d reach for this if my hair is super dry and I don’t have the time for a deep treatment mask.

How to Use: On damp or dry hair. Work in a dime size for each section of hair and then style
