7 Hair Masks To Fix Your Dry Hair Issues

If you suffer from dry hair whether on a constant basis or from time to time, you know how hard it can be to find a hair mask (A.K.A. hair masque) that not only will your hair like but will also hydrate it.

So what is a hair mask?

For years I thought deep conditioners and hair masks were the same. The only difference was that mask or masque was a fancy way of saying conditioner.

The key difference is hair masks tend to have richer concentrations of conditioning ingredients. Because of the richer concentrations of ingredients, hair masks tend to be better for thicker, more dense hair.

Now that I’m informed about what hair masks are I’m always on the search for ones that can keep dry hair at bay and overall help the health of my hair. I’ve been lucky during my hair journey as I’ve been able to find more often than not hair masks that have helped my dry hair issues.

To help make your next search easier, I’ve compiled a list of seven hair masks that are formulated to help solve dry hair issues and improve the overall health of your hair.

1. Proclaim Argan Oil Intense Hydrating Masque

This is the moisturizing hair masque I currently use as part of my hair regimen. It does hydrate my hair and gets it back into shape if it is feeling really dry.

The Proclaim Argan Oil Intense Hydrating Masque is really cost-efficient and claims that it “nourishes and detangles frizzy and unruly hair leaving it extra ordinarily soft, silky and manageable.”

2. TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask

When I read the description for this honey hair mask from tgin I think I automatically started to pull out my credit card. TGIN says this hair mask “is like an instant make over for dry, damaged or colored treated hair. This luxurious deep conditioner contains raw honey for softer, shinier tresses and jojoba and olive oils, which nourish and heal strands in need of repair. The result is hair that never looked so good.”

3. SheaMoisture Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque

This is currently another hair masque that I use in my hair regimen because my hair feels nourished after using it. The key ingredients of Mongongo Oil and Hemp Seed Oil help to hydrate the hair, particularly if it’s high porosity. Hemp Seed Oil moisturizes and protects the hair while Mongongo Oil coats and seals the cuticle keeping moisture in.

So not only does the SheaMoisture Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque keep my hair moisturized it also adds some protein. It’s pretty much a win-win.

4. True by Made Beautiful Intense Treatment Masque

I’ve fallen in love with the True by Made Beautiful leave-in conditioner after not liking when I initially used it. The honey, mango, shea butter, and coconut in it are a great blend of hydrating and nourishing ingredients that are perfect for dry hair. So I can only imagine that the companion hair masque is just a good.

As an added bonus the True by Made Beautiful hair masque is sulfate and paraben free making it safe for all hair types.

5. Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie

If you have dry, dull, and brittle hair, this hair smoothie is for you. The Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie says it intensely hydrates and can instantly fix dry hair problems to restore your softness and shine to your hair.

As with many of the hair masks on this list, it has no parabens, mineral oil, artificial colors, or petroleum.

6. Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner

While not technically a hair mask this deep conditioner from Eden BodyWorks is great for dry hair. After using it a few times I noticed a definite positive difference in my hair’s moisture levels.

The Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner from Eden BodyWorks says it’s “fortified to balance the hair's moisture level, resulting in stronger, healthier, more manageable hair.” Plus it is really budget-friendly because of the amount you get for the price that you pay.

7. Macadamia Natural Oil Natural Deep Repair Masque

This is probably the priciest of all seven but it has such great reviews. I’ve had a few hairstylists use this on my hair and it made my hair feel like butter.

Not only is the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque formulated to condition your hair, but it’s also a reconstructor. So it helps to improve the overall health of your hair if it’s also damaged.

Have you tried any of these hair masks or do you have a favorite to hydrate your hair?


  1. Hello
    Thanks for sharing,I`ve always had this terrible hair that never grows and is always dry.
    Now I have to say I have never used any masks on my hair, just never thought about it.Must say it was easier to manage in the past but as i get older, it`s just impossible to manage.
    What do you think? is it ok to only use homemade hairmasks or should one mix things up?

    1. I personally don't use hair masques because I'm a little lazy and don't want to spend the type sourcing ingredients and mixing everything up. Plus they don't last very long. If you go the store bought route, I suggest doing research on the masques your considering and seeing if you can get sample sizes to try before committing to a big container.

  2. I was fascinated to read this. Mainly because I make my own hydration stuff for my skin and my nails and my cuticles and my hair. I use many of the oils listed in your products to do that. And I'm going to research some of the ones you list here to get ideas for my next version of the serum that I've made.

    1. Sounds interesting. Which oils are your favorite?

  3. This for this post. My hair is dry all winter long. I will definitely try these masks and see what my hair likes.

    1. I tend to battle with dry hair more in the winter as well. Hopefully one of these hair masques will help. If not several of these brands have other masques may be better suited for your hair.
