What are some at-home DIY hair treatments to help keep hair healthier in between salon appointments? 

Thank you!

Crystal responded and shared and showed how to do her favorite treatments.

Dear Joy,
I love good hair masks and leave-in conditioners! Depending on what my hair needs at the time, I will do a mask about once a week and especially after I go to the beach. 

Hair masks are quick yet highly potent, effective ways to provide your hair with tons of health benefits in less than 20 minutes. 

Think of hair masks like high powered hair conditioners, giving your hair benefits like softening and hydrating, a boost to grow, adding shine, and can help to revive your hair color. 

Here are some wonderful hair masks that I am currently using and have tired to help nourish, protect, and moisturize my coarse, frizzy, and color-treated hair. She needs a lot of love that for sure!
