As the host of POPSUGAR Now, I get my hair professionally styled every day — which is pretty great. But after a year of hot tools and hair spray, my locks became a mess. For months I told myself, "Champagne problems, Merriam!" I was in no position to complain or worry, because even my dry, dull, and split-end-ridden hair looked presentable when professionally styled. But eventually I couldn't escape the inevitable any longer — my strands were in bad shape, and I really, really didn't want to cut off eight inches of damaged hair. So, I reasoned, it was time to start using conditioning masks. And into my life came Lenor Greyl's Masque Quintessence ($145), which promised to repair the most damaged of hair. To my surprise, it did — thanks to deeply hydrating ingredients like cupuacu and manketti nut oils. Using it for 10 minutes on damp hair every few days restored the bounce and shine to my mane that I once worried was gone for good. And I no longer fear the daily approach of the curling iron.
