Get ready for Winter this Cyber Monday on lookfantastic. Coming into the Winter months, your hair can suffer from the sharp drop in temperature, which zaps away any moisture, leaving you with split ends and dullness. Adding in a moisturising hair mask will leave your locks healthy, luminous and strong.

Hair masks might seem like an indulgent treat, but they are actually an essential part of any healthy haircare routine. Think of your shampoo and conditioner as your cleanser and moisturiser, and your hair mask as the weekly nourishing face mask that adds a boost of hydration to your locks.

The Fine Hair

Fine and dehydrated hair can be difficult to treat as any moisturising treatment can be too heavy and weigh it down. Opt for creamy consistencies that work into your locks but that can easily be rinsed out so no greasy residue is left behind.

The Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Masque is super nourishing, but when used once per week is great on fine hair. Its unique blend of vitamins nourish hair from root to tip to leave it soft, shiny and strong. This Cyber Monday, you can save 25% across the range and receive a free conditioner when you purchase any 2 products.

The Coloured Hair

In Winter, highlighted and coloured locks can lose their radiance and light with the changing temperatures as colder climes take away the all important hydration that keeps hair shiny. It’s therefore important to adopt a more moisturising routine, with the addition of a lightweight yet nourishing mask.

The Redken Diamond Oil Hair Mask contains extracts of Camelina and Apricot, which work to improve the radiance of dulling and damaged locks. Plus, this Cyber Monday, lookfantastic has an exclusive 30% off Redken and a free gift when you purchase any 2 products across the collection.

The Dry Hair

Dry hair can sometimes just be dehydrated, meaning that it needs a weekly hydration boost to get it back to its lustrous self. Aim to incorporate a treatment mask into your winter haircare routine at least once a week to make sure your hair doesn't go from dry to damaged.

The Kérastase Elixir Cataplasme Masque is enriched with a blend of precious oils that nourish each strand of hair without weighing them down or making them greasy. As it’s lightweight, it can be combed through the ends to the roots of the hair and left on to provide a gorgeous radiance and softness. Plus, this Cyber Monday only, Kérastase has an exclusive 30% off the range, so you can shop all your favourites too.

The Very Dry Hair

If your hair is already dry heading into winter, you will need to add in a super moisturising mask to your haircare routine to combat the severe dryness. This is because regular masks won’t be able to provide the intense nourishment your hair needs to replenish its lost hydration. It’s a great idea to use the mask on a nighttime so that when you wake up, you can rinse away without any residue left behind.

The Balmain Moisturising Repair Mask contains rich Argan Oil and Vitamin B5 to protect hair against environmental aggressors and restore lost moisture. This Cyber Monday, you can receive an exclusive 3 for 2 across the entire Balmain collection, which means you can stock up on enough hair masks to last you all Winter!

The Damaged Hair

If you have damaged hair, you will notice signs of weakness, brittle ends and extreme dulling. A hair mask treatment is advised at least 3 times per week until symptoms start to improve, and your hair becomes stronger and healthier.

The System Professional Repair Mask has been designed especially to fortify damaged hair and combat dry and split ends to leave your hair glossier and more lustrous. Its super rich formulation will instantly revive locks and give them a beautiful softness. Plus, this Cyber Monday, you can save up to 20% across the entire System Professional range, so you can shop your entire haircare routine.
