DITCH HEAT FOR HEALTHY LOCKS
Shinier strands can be yours with a little heat styling self-restraint. “A baking-hot dryer boils the water in wet hair, creating breakage,” says trichologist Dr David Kingsley. So put away the dryers and irons, and make your signature look a loose, twisted bun like the one on the right. “It’s a chic style that also looks great once it’s released,” says stylist Juan Carlos Maciques. You can make the look last a few extra days by applying dry shampoo – but only on the scalp. Finally, a weekly deep-conditioning treatment is a must to help strengthen hair, says Dr Kingsley. Look for wheat protein and dimethicone, both of which smooth the hair cuticle.
