Keeping your newly dyed hair vibrant and healthy isn’t much different from the way you should treat your hair normally.

Highlights, lowlights, all-over color – dying your hair can become a virtual addiction.

You’ve no doubt heard that it’s bad for your tresses to wash them every day.

While ladies can get lost in a shampoo-and-conditioner haze for hours before spending almost as long blowdrying, curling and pinning back their locks, most guys don’t spend much time worrying about their hair (unless they’re losing it, of course).

Taking care of your tresses is always a full-time job, but they’re subject to a lot of extra abuse in the summertime.

You might think you know how to braid your hair, but you really have no idea. Ready to learn?

There’s no time like spring to harness the energy of renewal – but why stop with budding blooms, balmier temperatures and a brighter, lightweight wardrobe? If your wintertime tresses aren’t exactly uplifting, you can take the situation into your own hands and reinvent yourself with a fresh hair color.

If any of you haven’t turned wise to the benefits of a leave-in conditioner or hair mask, let Shameless star Emmy Rossum teach you how to hold your head up high.

Lots of us know what it is to have a beauty fix – there’s that one product (or hey, maybe a few) that you use and use because you can’t get enough of it. And any lady with a bit of kink in her hair would agree – it seems there’s never enough conditioner to go around.

Some of us have grown up with the mantra that once a day is not the way. Then again, if you’re a frequent shower offender like so many people, you can’t help but shampoo every morning, because going without washing just doesn’t feel right.

Many women don’t necessarily see anything wrong with processing their hair on a daily basis, but what they may not know could actually hurt them in the long run. Harsh treatments and haircare procedures can leave hair dried, frizzed and damaged, and may actually prevent women from growing their hair at the rate that they want it to grow.

While conditioner is highly recommended for just about anyone who has hair, selecting the right formula for your tresses is often difficult. Some formulas can be too heavy for fine, feathery strands, while conversely, a thick mop may require heavy-duty intervention.
