2 Brilliant Ways to Make Your Fried Hair Shine
"My hair feels like straw!"
The Fix: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Start with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner (we like Kérastase Résistance Thérapiste shampoo, $40, and conditioner, $42; Kerastase-USA.com). Then apply a deep-conditioning mask twice a week, suggests Mara Roszak, L'Oréal Paris celebrity stylist. (Try L'Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm, $7; drugstores.) As a daily remedy, bicoastal hairstylist Jen Atkin likes to use a leave-in conditioning mist (get Carol's Daughter Mirabelle Plum Leave-In Conditioner, $11; CarolsDaughter.com) on damp hair before applying any styling products.
"The color is fading!"
The Fix: Color fade requires a two-pronged attack. First, before heading outdoors, spritz on a UV-filter spray (a good one is Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist, $20; Fekkai.com). Other environmental factors, like the water you wash in, also strip color; you may need to freshen your dye job between salon visits with a color-depositing shampoo and conditioner (such as Davines Alchemic shampoo, $25, and conditioner, $29; Davines.com). To give your color a noticeable boost, let the conditioner sit for five to 20 minutes.
