We be busy over here at Huda Beauty, which means any chance we get to multi-task (or mask), we take. And what’s a more opportune time to work on your haircare game then when you’re fast asleep? It doesn’t get any easier than that, guys. No matter what your hair type, check out our fave leave-in conditioners, serums, and treatments that transform thirsty follicles into model-worthy manes, without the slightest bit of effort on your part.
If your #selfcaresunday routine usually involves a skincare-focused sheet mask, add a hair mask to the mix. Not only will it banish frizz as you snooze, but deeply restore a lackluster ‘do the way only Argan oil can. It even has a seal of approval by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, so you know these botanicals are potent. Just work into hair from mid-length to ends and leave in while you get your beauty sleep—or for five to seven minutes, for an express version.
Celeb stylist Jen Atkin is our spirit animal when it comes to understanding hair = life, and when she debuts a new product, you better believe we take notice. Meet her new and improved smooth spray that detangles, deep conditions, and revitalizes dry ends, thanks to tamarind seed extract, vitamin E, and hydrolyzed proteins that stand up to the harshest heat damage. Plus, it smells like bergamot and Italian lemons #yum.
You had us at unicorn treatment. Really though, this stuff is what fairytale hair is made of. A professional-grade bond-building solution (made for at-home use) that reverses the havoc that bleaching and other rainbow-bright hues can impart. And the fact that it leaves a little sparkle in its path? Well, that’s an added bonus, obviously.
When it comes to styling natural curls, hair stylist Vernon François is a real life GOD – he’s the man behind some of Lupita Nyong’o and Solange Knowles’ most iconic looks. His hair collection is as celebrated as his talent, and this lightweight leave-in conditioner is enrichiched with amino acids, Sugar Beet mollasses and natural oils to nourish and define kinks, curls, coils and waves while eliminating frizz. It’s next level goodness!
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Priming Leave-In Conditioner, $32
Nothing shows your hair’s age faster than dry, lifeless locks and Alterna’s got your back (er, head) when it comes to correcting that. Super-moisturizing, yet lightweight and fast-absorbing, it’s a healthy cocktail for your scalp that also extends your style for 72 hours. Omega-3-rich caviar extract strengthens elasticity, rosehip seed oil balances natural oil production, and their signature Age-Control-Complex encourages micro-circulation. No wonder it keeps selling out.
Bed-head doesn’t always work in our favor, but with this luxurious mega mask, it does every time. Formulated with antioxidant-packed camellia oil and super-nourishing evening primrose, it infuses serious shine and destresses fried tresses by the a.m. It’s also suitable for every hair type – from the pin straight to the tightly coiled.
Once you experience this mighty serum, you’ll understand why it’s a cult favorite. First it exfoliates your scalp by removing debris, sebum, and build-up, then it gets to work stabilizing thinning hair and revitalizing the hair growth cycle from root to tip. We’re always here for a good two-in-one that promises a confident coif, but this one lives up to the hype.
Think of this overnight mane must-have as a week’s worth of repair boosters crammed into one application. When combed through damp hair just before bedtime, you’ll reap the rewards of powerful amino acids and time-released conditioners by the time you wake up. And you’ll be left with shinier, more vibrant strands that don’t show a trace of breakage because of it. In other good news: it’s pillow safe and keeps working through five shampoos.
