3 hair masks that can save your hair!


ORS Hair Mayonnaise – for weak hair.

This medium protein deep conditioner is a must try if you’re struggling with damaged hair and breakage. The directions on the bottle recommend that you apply a small amount, comb through your hair and leave on for 15 – 20 minutes with a plastic cap. We’ve found it works well if you apply heat (add a thick beanie over your plastic cap or sit under a hooded hair dryer)

Dark and Lovely Amla Legend Replenishing Hair Mask – for dry hair. 

Dark and Lovely’s Amla Legend range is fairly new in South Africa, but this product has already become a favourite. Although the instructions say to rinse after 5 minutes, leave it on for longer and add some heat – your hair will feel super soft afterwards!

Motions CPR Treatment Conditioner – for breakage. 

We’ve heard many women rave about how this product stops breakage in its tracks and it works just as well for relaxed hair as it does for natural hair. This treatment is effective and can be used once a month. Apply to freshly washed hair, comb through and put on a plastic cap afterwards. Rinse well after 15 minutes.

PRO TIP: Boost your deep conditioner by adding coconut, castor or olive oils or mix in a beaten egg for added protein. When using egg, don’t add heat or the egg will cook – and you’ll be picking bits of egg out of your hair all day.
