If you've noticed your hair tends to feel a bit drier and unrulier post-summer, you're not imagining things. Chlorine-filled pools, extra sun exposure, and dips in the ocean can wreak havoc on your hair, especially if there's already existing damage. Before you schedule an appointment to chop off any damaged ends, hear us out. We've rounded up the best hair masks to help nourish and strengthen your tresses.

As opposed to simply giving your hair a silky feel (which is, of course, a plus), these treatments are filled with nourishing ingredients to get to the source of the problem and reverse the damage caused during the warmer months. Grab a shower cap and one of the below products to reclaim stronger, shinier, and healthier hair ASAP.
