At this point, anything that will keep my hands busy is a literal dream come true. Working from home and having little to no time outside has tested every bit of my patience and forced me to contemplate new routines, like sitting on the window sill and counting the cars that pass by. With what I hope was the worst of cabin fever come and gone, I’m hoping to rescues the remnants of what used to be a regimented beauty routine. For starters, I’m using what I think is the best natural hair mask almost every day.

Underneath the towel turban that makes me feel I’m getting dressed everyday (despite staying in PJ’s), my hair is usually slathered in a mask or deep conditioner. Not only does it restore some normalcy to my new normal; it’s also insurance that my hair will flourish whenever I can sit at an actual work desk again. If you have natural hair like me and want to make the most of your WFH days, here are some of the best-reviewed natural hair masks for every budget.

OGX Pracaxi Oil Recovery Mask
