Jafra Split End

Re­pair Cap­sules,



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.
