Overnight Treatments for Damaged, Frizzy Hair

Between heat styling, chemical processing, UV rays and pollution, hair endures immense daily damage ultimately causing frizz, splits and breakage over time. But just as your body heals itself best overnight while resting, so can your stressed out strands using intense hydrating masks.

How Overnight Masks Repair Hair

Think of intensive overnight treatments like sending your hair to a spa. Catered conditioning formulas work through the night to undo and prevent three types of damage:

1. Mechanical Damage

Friction from towels, brushes and rough handling lifts cuticles allowing moisture escape causing frizz. Nutrient-rich masks saturate strands and facilitate cuticle smoothing.

2. Heat Damage

Hot tool overuse dehydrates hair fibers leading to dry, brittle textures prone to snapping and frizz. Masks stuffed with fatty acids, ceramides and proteins deeply reinforce bonds weakened by constant high heat.

3. Chemical Damage

Harsh ingredients strip color or structure away causing significant yet irreparable harm to strands. Nourishing overnight products attract moisture to porous areas repairinggaps in the cuticle layer protecting hair.

Optimal Overnight Hair Mask Ingredients

  • Macadamia, argan, marula or coconut oils
  • Shea or cocoa butters
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Collagen
  • Avocado, olive or grapeseed oils
  • Keratin proteins

Application Tips

  • Start with freshly washed, towel-dried hair
  • Distribute evenly focusing on mid-lengths and ends
  • Cover hair in a shower cap overnight
  • Rinse thoroughly in the morning before heat styling

Invest in overnight hair masks containing damage-reversing ingredients tailored to your hair's unique needs. Over time, improved texture, shine and strength reveal your new favorite treatment!
