During this time of year, it’s totally normal to feel like you’re having way more bad hair days than good hair days—and sometimes, wearing a hat over it only seems to make it worse. And doing hair masks on a regular basis can be time consuming and messy. Hair boosters are strong serums intended to stop damage before it can even start—they’re best to use as a preventative measure, although you can add them into your haircare routine at any time to wed off future issues. They’re an especially great product if you want to grow your hair longer without needing lots of regular trims to deal with split ends
Hair boosters are great for people on the go. When using a hair mask, you typically have to leave it in for at least 10 minutes, and some need an overnight treatment in order to really be effective. When using a hair booster, you only need to leave the product in for about one or two minutes—the highly concentrated formula can get the job done quickly. Then, you simply rinse it out with water. Another bonus? Hair boosters don’t need to be massaged into your scalp. Since they are primarily intended to repair and prevent damage to your ends, you only need to work them into your hair from your ears to your ends. This makes them much easier to rinse out! Using a clarifying shampoo once or twice per week will ensure that you’re not dealing with any excess build up.
So, which hair boosters are worth trying? There are some options for every budget. If you’re looking to save money while still getting the benefits, check out the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, which are available at drugstores for only $5. Have a little more room to splurge? Reverie Ever Recovery Oil retails for $52. And if your hair needs some serious deep recovery treatment, the Keratase Fusio-Dose Homelab for Hair Smoothness is pricey at $98, but it could be the fix that you need.
