Who doesn't want shiny, glossy hair to swing around this summer?

You don't have to spend a fortune for luxe locks - there's a $6 option people are calling "the best hair mask on the market".

A'kin Miracle Shine Conditioning Hair Mask, $6

The A'kin Miracle Shine Conditioning Hair Mask, $6 (now $3.99 from Chemist Warehouse) is an intensive conditioner that's enriched with avocado oil, Australian jojoba oil and squalene.

These ingredients work together to strengthen, repair, protect and lock in moisture, leaving you with nourished, shiny hair.

It also contains Vitamin E and ProVitamin B5 to promote healthy hair and scalp.

"My hair looks so shiny, and feels so soft," says one user.

"This is honestly the best thing I've ever put on my hair," says another.

"This is excellent - gives shine and silkiness."

You can also buy the miracle mask in a 200g tub for $15.39, enough to last the silly season.

Mask up and fight the frizz

You can use the mask in several ways; either pre-shampooing, for 10-15 minutes on wet hair after shampooing, or on towel dried hair for 30 minutes.

If you want a really intensive treatment, you can even leave it on overnight.

Rub it into your hair and scalp thoroughly, before rinsing with warm water.

It's suitable for all types of hair, particularly dry, damaged locks.

After just one use, people say they can notice reduced frizz and seriously improved shine.

Even better, the Aussie made and owned mask is 100% vegan and halal, not tested on animals, and doesn't contain parabens, silicones, phthalates, mineral oil or synthetic fragrances.
