Jafra Split End
does trimming my hair help it grow? Cutting doesn’t speed growth, but it does prevent ends from splitting, which causes hair to look shorter, says Elizabeth Cunnane Phillips, a trichologist at Philip Kingsley Hair Clinic, US. Trim strands every two months. In between, use a split-end sealer (try Jafra Split End Repair Capsules, 750) on tips. Like a liquid bandage, it temporarily stops a tear from growing.
QMy highlights darken a few weeks postcolour. How can I make them pop? Try a shampoo made for colour treated hair (like L’Occitane Radiance and Colour Care Shampoo, 1,290, or Dove Colour Rescue Shampoo, 130). And if you hydrate with argan oil, be sure it’s light gold, not brown, which can stain, says NYC colorist Amy Huson. (We like the Kerastase Elixir Ultime, 2,200, as it nourishes coloured hair and keeps it healthy.)
QQBlack mascara looks too dramatic on my lower lashes. Any suggestions?
Use black on top and brown on bottom, says NYC make-up pro Mathew Nigara. You’ll mimic the natural look of lashes (upper ones are darker than lower ones).
I keep seeing one-shade-fits-all ade-fits-all foundations. How can the same one work on me my friend,
who is much lighter? ighter? Similar to tinted moisturisers,risers, “these are made with less pigment andd offer a sheerer finish than foundation does, so they can even out a range of tones,” saysys Rebecca Restrepo, an Elizabeth Ardenrden global make-up artist.
