newSpring clean your styling tools! Let your curling or straightening iron cool, then put a little rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball, wipe down the iron and viola! Sticky residue is gone.

newSpring is on the horizon and with it an influx of humidity that can wreak havoc on your hair. In humid weather it's best to work with what you've got – let curly hair curl and if your straight hair curls up when the air is damp, find style that works with the waves!

newFor deep winter conditioning, try honey! Massage ½ cup clover honey into wet hair from roots to tips. Wrap your hair in plastic, and then wrap a towel turban around the plastic. Leave on 20 minutes, shampoo and condition. Sweet!

newTame winter static and flyaways with leave-in conditioner. Wash and towel-dry hair, spray conditioner on and comb-through for even distribution. Slip on your favorite sweater and go!

newWhen experimenting with hair color, remember to consider how much upkeep you can live with, and make sure you have the time and the budget to maintain your new look. Also, try highlighting your new color with some colorful makeup...make a splash!

newGuys. Using styling products is a positive step, but your hair shouldn't ever be crunchy. It can be easy to overdo it with the product, but even short hairstyles should have movement. Stick to a hair product that is not sticky, and does not flake.

newUse a natural boar bristle hairbrush with a wooden handle to reduce hair static. If all else fails, run a dryer sheet over your locks!

newOlive oil helps not only repair split ends and heal dandruff - it makes your hair shiny, silky, and lustrous! Just massage a few tablespoons into your scalp and hair, cover with a plastic cap, and leave it in for 30 minutes or more. Then you can shampoo as usual.

Spring is always welcome, but not the frizzies that come with changing moisture levels! Never rub hair dry – it causes breakage that can lead to frizz.

When hitting the holiday party circuit, remember: The weather outside may be frightful. So be sure choose a hairstyle that can withstand the wind, the rain, the snow and the cold.

For healthy, shiny hair, hydrate on the outside and the inside. Apply a hair mask once a week to boost moisture levels in winter-weary locks, and make sure you're drinking plenty of water every day!

No time for extensive hair styling? Always have a few fashionable hats in reserve that you can just pop on and be ready for a night on the town!

Love your locks! When you’ve been naturally blessed with curly hair, be careful with the comb. Never brush dry hair and always use a pic or a comb with wide teeth to maintain your healthy curls.

Swimming is one of the joys of summer. Before you hop in, rinse your hair so fresh water is absorbed before chlorine or salt water.

Adding 1 1⁄2 tablespoons of flaxseed to your diet could save your hair! Researchers have found that the disease-fighting compounds in flaxseed slow hair loss!

Did you know that flax seed gel can be used to set your hair?  Just mix 3/4 cup water with 1 tablespoon flax seed, comb it through and set on pins or rollers.  Your style will have staying power.

Think nothing can make your frizz go straight? Think again! The Infiniti Nano Silver by ConairTM Steam Straightener uses hot new technology and deep conditioning steam to turn frizz straight, silky and shiny...fast!

For healthy hair be sure to take a vitamin B complex every day and increase your intake of protein as found in meat, fish, liver, wheat germ, dried cooked beans and peas, tofu, cheese, milk and eggs.

Looking for the right brush? For short hair a brush with soft bristles works best. For medium and long hair use a paddle brush for straight looks or a round brush to add curves and volume.

When styling curly hair, coat wet hair with product to block humidity and
define the curl pattern. Once it’s dry, do not touch.

Holiday time is party time. Be prepared; pack a little bag with sample-size hair necessities, like spray, gel, and pomade. Tuck in a few clips, a little comb and a mirror, and you’ll always be ready to party!

While a hot shower feels good during the cold-weather season, save your scalp by using lukewarm water to wash your hair - hot water strips away natural oils of the scalp that protect the skin from winter dryness.

Dandruff shampoos are hard on hair. Once you’ve gotten rid of the dandruff, try treating hair from the middle down to the ends with a conditioner at least twice a week, until you get your luster back!

The best quality and least damaging curlers and straighteners are those that spend less time styling your hair. Do your hair a favor and invest in one today!

To reduce frizz and protect hair from chlorine, shampoo and apply a leave-in conditioner before going to the beach or pool. After your swim, be sure to use a clarifying shampoo. A dryer that’s 1,600 watts or higher gives the fastest results. Use the nozzle attachment to direct and condense airflow or if your hair is curly, use a diffuser.

The sun and surf are great for your spirit, not so  great for your hair. Sprays and styling gels with protective oils and UV  filters are a must before you hit the beach.

Banish winter dullness from your hair with heat-activated shampoos, conditioners and styling products. They will bring out the shine in no time!

Never blow-dry sopping wet hair - it can't take the heat. After rinsing, squeeze hair gently with a towel - don't rub.

Summertime brings frizzies. To keep them at bay, deep condition once a week and let washed hair air-dry. Blow-drying causes more frizz.

To remove hairspray residue from your curling iron,  pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad or make a paste of three  parts baking soda to one part water. Rub over the cool surface of an unplugged iron, then wipe clean with a water-dampened cloth. Be sure to do this while the iron is unplugged!

The summer sun can wreak havoc on your color-treated hair, fading your color or making it brassy. Before you go outside, spritz on a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen to protect your hue!

When shampooing, concentrate on working the shampoo into the scalp, as well as into your hair. When conditioning, leave the scalp alone – it doesn’t need it – and focus your efforts on the hair!

Whether you spend your winter vacation in the snow or at the beach, avoid the dreaded “hat head” by wearing a loose fitting, floppy hat.

A dryer that’s 1600 watts or higher gives the fastest results. Use the nozzle attachment to direct and condense airflow or if your hair is curly, use a diffuser.

As your hair tends to be drier during the winter months, try to cut down on how often you wash it to avoid removing even more precious oil!

Every once in a while, hair craves a little more moisture. Apply conditioner to warm, wet, just-washed hair, wrap it up in a towel, and relax for 3 minutes to give hair a more intense conditioning treatment.

To load hair with shine and leave it full and loose, use an Infiniti by Conair™ tourmaline ceramic hairdryer and diffuser.

When conditioning long or thick hair, use a wide-toothed comb to distribute conditioner evenly and prevent over-conditioning or under-conditioning certain areas.

Brushes and combs need cleaning too – a once-a-week wash with regular shampoo keeps them looking and feeling like new!

Always shampoo with warm water and condition with cooler water. Warm water loosens buildup from styling products and cleans more thoroughly; cool water seals cuticles and locks in moisture.

Need a fun fix for a tried-and-true do? Add a stylin’ scünci® No-Slip Grip™ barrette or headband to instantly bring the funk – and keep it there all day!

Longer locks need lots of love! Section hair and brush from the bottom up – when you reach the top, it’s a smooth stroke all the way down.

No biz for frizz! Before drying, spritz hair with a light leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture and prevent frizzy split ends.

For fastest results when using a blow dryer, choose a model with 1600 watts or more. Be sure to use the nozzle attachment to direct and condense airflow while cutting drying time.

Hairspray overload? Comb hair from roots to ends and then rub a tiny amount of hand cream on the stiff spot. Your hair will be smooth as silk in no time.

A very “now” look is to have a texturized feel and look to your hair. Go for a cut with lots of movement and layers, and try a drying sort of product to give your hair that “grit” without the reality of unwashed tresses. A good product to use is one that mimics the effect of saltwater. Look for “a day at the beach” type of spray that provides that great texture you get from a real swim in the ocean.

Professional hair stylists are singing the praises of “dry” shampoo and you will too after you see the benefits an occasional treatment brings. It not only saves you time, it also removes oil, adds volume, and lets you achieve that much sought-after full head of healthy hair we all desire.

Got bangs? No time to blow-dry them straight? No problem! Part your hair and comb damp bangs toward one side– as you are getting ready gently pull on the bangs in the direction you want them to lie; do this several times as they dry. This simple motion will straighten them. When dry add a bit of pomade for extra hold.

Sometimes it’s nicer to sleep in those few extra minutes than get up to style your hair. If that’s the case you don’t have to settle for a mussed hairdo– instead blow-dry your hair straight and consider using a flat iron to make your hair look neat and pulled together.

You just blew your hair out straight, and it’s perfection! But if you get caught in an unexpected rainstorm? No need to fret, be flexible and make friends with the humidity. Add a dab of styling cream and twist hair into soft waves–turn it into a positive!

You decided to curl your hair with an iron today and instead of channeling a Greek goddess, you look more like a tumbleweed/head of broccoli. UGH! Instant fix: a chic scarf can transform you in seconds. Fold the scarf flat and tie it in your hair like a wide headband.

Want to achieve Hollywood hair at home? Invest in a set of large hot rollers. Roll your hair away from your face, set, and when removing rollers gently shake out hair. Use a flexible hold hairspray to keep locks touchably soft.

An easy way to achieve that much sought-after, tousled "bed-head" look is to – yes, you guessed it – go to bed! Wake up, style hair with your fingers and some pomade, spray and either leave it down or pin it up with a few strands loose. Instant va-va-voom!

No time for fussing with your coiffure? First arrange a deep side part with a comb, then brush damp tresses into a polished twist or bun. Secure with bobby pins and some hairspray and voilà - you are good to go!

Running late and no time to blow-dry? Put your hair up in a towel as you are applying your makeup. When your makeup is finished your hair will be semi-dry. Apply a setting lotion to hair (avoiding roots) and simply scrunch, scrunch SCRUNCH your hair all the way to work!

Did you know that a simple product like lip balm can be used to tame those pesky flyaways in your hair? In a pinch you can use a small amount as a pomade to get a smooth polished look in seconds!

If your hair has been damaged by chemical processing apply a deep conditioner once a week before you go to bed. In the morning, simply rinse it out and you will be amazed at how silky your mane will be after an overnight nourishing treatment!

Bored with your long hair? For a dramatic new look that doesn't require a haircut try a partial updo - pull hair from above ears back and secure with clip, band or pins and finish the look off with some hairspray.

A simple and fast style solution for the busy woman on the go! Sweep hair back into a neat and sophisticated bun - all you need are a few bobby pins and some hairspray.

Attention curly-haired damsels! Want to keep your curls frizz-free and bouncy? After shampooing and conditioning run an anti-frizz lotion through hair from roots to ends, and separate and soften curls with your fingers or a hair pick.

Fine hair? Be sure to use a shampoo and conditioner suited specifically for your hair type. Look for products that thicken and are light in formula - you can have fine hair, volume and texture without weighing your hair down!

In a rush? Want a polished look? If your hair is long pull it back into a sleek low riding ponytail. Short hair? A stylish headband or scarf will do the trick.

To mask damaged hair try a shine-enhancing serum or a pomade just on the ends of your hair. This will smooth any split ends until you can get your hair cut again.

To add instant volume to your hair, change your usual part to the opposite side of your head or to the middle.

To create frizz-free curls, spray dry hair with hairspray, wrap hair around a curling iron, and hold for a moment. As you release, twirl hair with your fingers to mold individual spirals.

If you want a longer hold when you style with a curling iron try spraying hairspray BEFORE curling hair.
