Whether you’re dealing with some serious faded hair color and can’t make it in to see your colorist for a while, or are just yearning for a way to give your mane a change without taking drastic measures and reaching for some potentially-dangerous box dye, color-depositing hair masks are the perfect way to revive your hair color subtly and safely— and of course, without risking causing damage and breakage thanks to harsh ingredients.

Aside from giving your strands a pigment pick-me-up that won’t leave you with a post-application panic attack and/or in a state of grave regret, these conditioning, and restructuring hair masks are also a good way to repair existing damage, breakage, split ends and dryness caused by bleach or hair color. I mean, why not get both done at the same time, right? Whether you’re platinum blonde battling brassiness, a vibrant cherry-hued redhead with major fading or a rich brunette mourning the loss of vibrance, these multi-purpose hair masks will help bring your hair back to life without having to step foot in a salon.
