1. Prevent hair breakage from the get-go. Gently work your comb in sections, detangling your ends first and making your way up to your roots.
2. Embrace Sulfate-Free products for strong, sleek locks. Sulfates (the acidic stuff that's found in many household cleaners) can do a number on your strands. Instead, pick-up L'Oréal’s nonabrasive and gentle alternatives.
3. Point your dryer’s nozzle down when blow-drying. This keeps the cuticles flat and smooth. Complete your blowout by blasting your whole head for one minute using the dryer’s coolest setting to seal the deal.


Daily Makeover
1. Rinse with tap water before taking a dip in the pool or ocean. Your porous strands will absorb the regular H2O, making it harder for chlorine and salt water to penetrate.

2. Wrap a silk scarf around your head when you’re out and about. UV rays, pollution and harsh elements do a number on your color.
3. Neutralize brassiness with L'Oréal’s EverPure Blonde Brass Banisher system--a refreshing shampoo, conditioner and treatment that intensely nourishes overprocessed hair in just one use.

1. If you have coiled hair, massage a bit of coconut oil onto your scalp to prevent dryness. Comb through and then cover with a shower cap for 20 minutes before washing thoroughly.

2. Don’t underestimate the power of a perfect haircut. To prevent salon mishaps, ask your stylist for a dry cut (where they cut your hair before they wash) so he or she can asses your locks in their natural state.
3. After the shower pat--don’t rub--your hair dry with a microfiber towel (ditch the terrycloth) to avoid frizz. If you don’t have one, a T-shirt works just as well. Here’s the how-to.

1. Use a humidifier. Dry air = moisture depletion in hair. Sleeping in a room with a humidifier raises hydration levels, meaning you’ll wake up to more supple locks.

2. Combat dry, brittle hair by taking a fish oil supplement to boost oxygen levels in the scalp and enliven a parched mane. It also helps to eat a diet rich in omega-3s.

3. Don’t shy away from your hairbrush. By running it through your strands, you’re essentially distributing those beneficial natural oils. It’s the easiest trick to gleaming locks.
