Long Hair Care

If you use a flat iron, use a heat-protecting spray or cream first. Try: Umberto Beverly Hills Controller ($9); Matrix Biolage Fortifying Heat Styler ($13); L’Oreal Textureline Hotstyle Ironingcreme ($14).

If you color and heat-style, use extra-moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. Try Neutrogena Triple Moisture Cream Lather Shampoo ($6) and Silk Touch Leave-In Cream with olive extract and sweet almond oil ($7).

If you shampoo every day, don’t. Daily shampoos and blow-outs dry out hair and strip color. Try Stila Hair Refresher in Creme Bouquet ($28) as an in-between solution for greasy scalp or cigarette smells.
