Warm weather is here, the bars are open and we’re getting back to society (fully vaccinated, of course). It’s a shot girl summer y’all.
But getting and about also means getting our hair back into shape. After a year of zoom calls, self-trims, and some *questionable* at-home hair-dye situations, we’re not ashamed to admit our manes are in rough shape. We’re talking major split ends. It takes time and attention to rehab stressed out strands – or a miracle-working, fast-acting, cuticle-sealing wonder-product. When it comes to healing your hair in a tight time frame, split end sealing masks are the way to go.
