"As someone who is very impatient, I love that you only have to let this mask marinate in your hair for two minutes to reap its benefits. It hydrates and prevents breakage, leaving my dry, color-treated hair so soft and shiny post-shower." — Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

"I have pretty healthy hair overall, so I stick to masks that give me an extra boost of shine and softness. This find is just so good. My hair looks and feels amazing, and I'm able to brush through my long, usually-knotted waves with ease." — Rebecca Iloulian, director, newsletter revenue & marketing

"This mask has pulled my hair back from the brink many times over the years — and I'm going on nearly 20 years of color treatment. If I've been on a heat-styling streak, I leave it on for three songs (in-shower speakers forever) and rinse for so much extra moisture." —Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR

"To be fair, Fable & Mane can do no wrong with me. But, this mask really brings me joy. In addition to its yummy fruity scent, it moisturizes and revives my hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and oh-so healthy-looking." — Angela Melero, Executive Editor, TZR

Hair Repair
"Most hair masks direct you to leave the cream on for 15 minutes — I don't have that kind of time! Luckily this powerhouse option from Sachajuan only takes about 5 to yield its luxuriant, hydrating results." — Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

"Because I use hot tools on my hair multiple times a week, moisturizing masks are my best friend. This option from JVN really nourishes my strands and helps repair my natural curls." — Maggie Haddad, senior social media strategist, TZR

"My hair is pretty damaged these days (I'm taking a long break from bleach), so I always turn to Ouai's when it's looking especially brittle. This product makes my hair noticeably healthier and shinier." — Kelsey Stewart, associate fashion editor, TZR

"While I don't use hair masks often, I always let this rich conditioner sit on my strands a little longer during wash day. It's s super nourishing with olive oil, coconut cream, and okra gel. The slime green color is also very pleasing. " — Jessica Fields, beauty writer, TZR
