Blah Factor #5: Dehydrated Hair

Try one of these ultralight, spritz-on solutions:

The detangler: When the blue top layer of moisturizing silicones and clear bottom layer of softening polymers are blended in Pantene Pro-V’s Aqua Light Weightless Conditioning Shake, the result is an airy mist that moisturizes and eliminates knots. Shake and spray on damp hair to prevent breakage (caused by brushing) or heat damage (caused by hot tools).
$6.50, Walmart.com

The beach-day haircolor keeper: The Davines Well-Being De-Stress Lotion—containing carnation, nutmeg and sandalwood essential oils—absorbs quickly into damp or dry hair, protects your dye job with a UV filter, and calms frizz on contact.
$25, Davines.com for salons

The split-end softener: A pea-size drop of Dove Style and Care Nourishing Dry Ends Serum—when applied from the middle of the hair shaft down—subdues frizz.

The flyaway tamer: Rich with omega-6 fatty acids, Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil can be used on wet or dry hair as a conditioning mask, heat protector and shine booster. (But avoid applying near your scalp—this concentrated formula can weigh down roots.)
