Get Gorgeous Hair: We'll Show You How

Get Gorgeous Hair—We’ll Show You How

True confessions: In the battle to tame my mane, the mane often wins. My hair, curly on good days but frizzy on most, gets wide instead of long. But being a dedicated naturalista,
I always thought the fewer products I had on my hair, the better. Of course I still washed and conditioned, and used a little bit of hair oil to moisturize, but I thought of those gooey, gunky hair mousses, gels, and sprays as chemical central. Besides, they turned my hair unnaturally brittle, and I preferred my haze of frizz to those crispy little tendrils.

So I often default to wearing headbands and clips in my hair to give me some semblance of control. Recently, though, I couldn’t even bear to wait between haircuts my normal three months, and went in for a trim after about ten weeks.

Annie Weisel, my hairdresser, who works at Urban Pearl in Boulder, Colorado, sat me down. Thinking we were doing the initial precut pep talk, she started playing with my hair, applying some product and really twining my hair around her fingers, working the lotions in. When she was done, I had a new head of hair: defined Botticelli curls cascading down my head, each tendril gleaming. She said I didn’t need a haircut—what I needed, she said, was to use some product.

It was an epiphany, albeit a modest one, as I saw firsthand why for my type of hair in particular, you would no more leave the house without some sort of styling aid as you would without a moisturizer. Of course, it’s not just about what you put on your hair après shampoo. A slew of factors go in to taming your tresses—so follow our action plan below to put the luster back into your locks.

Pre-shampoo oil treatment:

Consider conditioning your hair before you shampoo, by massaging in oil to your hair and scalp—heating is optional—and leaving it in for roughly twenty minutes. We love Suki Hair/Scalp Conditioning Oil (1 oz, $29), which combines stimulating rosemary with conditioning neem. Yarok Spark Your Youth (2 oz, $60) incorporates orange oil, a powerful antioxidant that keeps hair healthy, with avocado oil, great for nourishing dry hair.

Shampoo and Condition:

About a year ago while doing research for another hair story, I came across the Curly Girl ethos pioneered by hairdresser Lorraine Massey, author of Curly Girl (Workman Publishing Company, 2001). Her theory? For the curlyhaired, shampooing, especially with a formula that contains sulfates, is a crime against nature, as it strips hair of its natural oils. She recommends a no-poo approach, and suggests, when needed, to wash hair with conditioner. For those with straight or fine hair that tends to get greasy, not shampooing may be out of the question. You can, however, wash your hair less frequently than you think you need to, and use a shampoo without sulfates or harsh synthetics. “We’ve been trained by commercials to over shampoo our hair,” says Weisel. “Shampoo half as much and just rinse in between sha...

Hair Repair

The holiday season can wreak havoc on your hair. The cold, dry air outside and the heat blasting inside are traumatic for your fragile tresses. You may not be able to tame the elements, but you can reverse their damaging effects with a little TLC. For starters, trim the tips. Dryness starts at your ends, which are furthest from the natural oils that emerge out of your scalp to hydrate your hair. Minimize the use of blow dryers, flat irons, and hot rollers; the dry heat hurts the hair shaft. If you must use heated styling tools, first prep your hair by applying a heat-protecting cream or leave-in conditioner. To reverse damage already done, pamper your mane with masks and deep conditioners specifically designed to help hydrate, strengthen, and restore natural luster and shine.

Abba Recoup Conditioner

This intensive conditioning treatment infuses the hair shaft with a 'tri-molecular' protein that reconstructs each hair shaft from the inside out, restoring its natural strength and elasticity. Natural humectants and herbs, including lavender, chamomile, mint, and juniper, moisturize and soothe while helping to minimize frizz and fly-aways. www.abbahaircare.com

Warren-Tricomi FIX Hair Repair Treatment

Single serving treatment packets (plus a bonnet to boost the product's intensity) provide the perfect amount of clarifying, nourishing, and hydrating cream to remove build-up and return your hair to a strong and healthy state. Plant extracts, oils, and proteins, including hops, witch hazel, and nettle, promise salon-strength conditioning. www.warrentricomi.com

Natural Hair Care

Natural Hair Care: Ready To Make the Switch? Ask the Pros!

With all of the news about toxins in our hair care products, the same products that we lather onto our heads and spritz around us every day, there are more reasons than ever to ditch the silicones, sulfates and parabens in hair care in favor of a natural alternative. Sounds easy enough, until it comes time to make the switch. Many natural hair care products lather less, condition more and generally perform differently than their conventional counterparts, leaving us at major risk for bad hair days unless we know which products to trust. To find out which products perform best, you could test every formula you can get your hands on, or to shop with a trusted friend who has natural know-how. But who has time for that?

We saved you the trouble and sought out the pros: the staff of Juju Salon & Organics in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whose job it is to make the curly, the fine, the thick and the wavy look perfectly-coiffed, naturally. Juju has converted hundreds of its most beauty-obsessed clients to natural products since opening in 2005, and Elle magazine recently named the all-natural space one of the Top 100 Salons in the US. If you've been holding out on switching to natural hair care products, this is the expert guide you need to make a change. Read on to find the hair care products that made the Juju staff gladly toss out their Pantene

All-Around Best Shampoo & Conditioner: For shampoo and conditioner that never fails, the Juju staff recommends John Masters Organics. John Masters' Zinc & Sage Shampoo receives rave reviews at Juju's shampoo bowl for its light, tropical scent, and shiny, manageable results on all hair types, says Juju Salon Owner Julie Ebner. And John Masters' Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner is a favorite of new clients for its rich formula that delivers instant results, not to mention a lovely lavender scent. It's light enough for fine hair, and super-conditioning for over-processed locks.

Family-Friendly Shampoo & Conditioner: Need hair care that the entire family can share? Juju Salon Manager Brooke Petry swears by the certified organic Nurture My Body Shampoo and Conditioner , the creation of a husband and wife team, which boasts an ingredient list that reads like a seed catalogue. Petry uses the products to cleanse herself and her 18 month-old daughter and says that using the herbal-scented conditioner is honestly one of my favorite parts of the day. Spoken like a busy mom!

Color-Enhancing Shampoo: Petry says that color-treated clients love to amp up their color naturally with Logona Color Care Shampoos, a great plant-based, wallet-friendly way to make your hair color last. Henna is for redheads, Chamomile is for blondes, while Hazelnut works best on brunettes to raven-haired heads. Go ahead and lather up without worrying about synthetic dyes or fragrances!

Leave-In Conditioner: If you stopped into Juju, chances are you woul...
