We’ve Got Heart-Eye Emojis For This Hair Mask

I have seriously  long-ass hair and if I’m not careful, it can basically turn into a gigantic, dreaded rat’s nest thanks to some natural frizz and my aversion to hairbrushes. That’s why I’ve fallen so hard for this “nourishing mask” from Amika ($28, loveamika.com). I put it on in the shower for a couple of minutes once a week and it takes my mane from witch to mermaid. Apparently, I can thank its main active ingredient, sea buckthorn berries, for that—they’re chockfull of omegas and vitamins. Plus, its super cute packaging means it looks good in my bathroom, and as BUST senior designer Meredith says, “It smells like sunshine.” Talk about a grateful head.
