As the cool fall weather turns to winter, it’s high time to consider adding a hair mask to your beauty regimen. “Keeping hair moisturized and healthy always makes your hair look better,” explains Stephanie Brown, NYC-based master colorist at IGK SoHo. “Masks keep your hair strong and healthy.”

Regular masking every one to two weeks can also help prevent damage, improve the health of your scalp (avoiding seasonal dryness, flaking, and itching), and preserve dyed color longer. The celebrity colorist, who works with Kate McKinnon and Melissa Villasenor, notes that ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, jojoba, shea butter, and linseed extract are especially great for color-treated locks.
