How to keep cut and color looking fresh between trips to the salonWhile many women look forward to a trip to the salon, busy schedules can keep ladies from returning as often as they’d like. Gals on the go who don’t have time for regular appointments may want to employ a few tricks to keep their cut and color looking fresh for as long as possible.

According to, hair health expert Gavin Harwin says that a good leave-in conditioner can do wonders for the life of your cut. While Jack Black is known as a men’s line, women may enjoy some of the brand’s products as well. True Volume Revitalizing Conditioner is a fragrance-free hydrating formula that can be applied to wet hair and left in for intense conditioning.

Harwin also advises women to cut down on heat styling, as hot air from dryers, curlers and irons can cause unsightly split ends.

Women who color their hair can also take certain measures to prolong the life of their dye job. These ladies can use a shampoo and conditioner that is specially formulated for color-treated hair, like Leonor Greyl Bain Vitalisant B.

Finally, the website reports that sun, chlorine and clarifying shampoos can quickly drain dye. A leave-in treatment, like L’Occitane Summer Protection Sun Hair Mist, will protect hair from UV rays and can help keep color from fading.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19933261-ADNFCR

L’Occitane products may help ward off summertime frizz

L'Occitane products may help ward off summertime frizzSummer is a fun and frivolous season, but it also packs its fair share of beauty woes, from runny makeup to sunburned skin. And women with wavy or curly hair know that these humidity-laden months mean one thing – frizz!

While it may seem overwhelming to tame your mane, experts share some insider information with Allure magazine that may help you keep frizzy hair at bay.

According to the publication, frizz occurs when dry hair absorbs water from the air, so keeping your hair moisturized is important. L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Shampoo is a nourishing formula made to improve dry hair.

While the product is gentle enough to use daily, you may only want to lather up every few days. “The natural oils that accumulate [between washes] are good frizz-fighters,” hairstylist Nathaniel Hawkins told the news source.

When styling your luscious locks, experts recommend rubbing a drop of silicone product in your palms, such as L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Serum for Dry & Damaged Hair, and then patting your hands over your frizzy strands.

But resisting the urge to play with your waves may be key. “The more you put your hands through [your hair], the more likely you are to create frizz,” hairstylist Garren told the magazine.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19891951-ADNFCR
