FAQs

Q: I color my hair regularly, and it tends to look dry and dull in the summertime. Are there tips to keeping it healthy all year long?

A: Colored hair is susceptible to damage, particularly in the summer months when heat and humidity are unavoidable. Make a habit out of wearing hats and scarves to cover your hair in the sun, and use SPF hair products such as Quintessence Q-Sunshade Leave In Hair Conditioner and Scalp Protectant SPF 30. Give your hair some extra TLC in the summer with a conditioning treatment like Alterna BAMBOO UV Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque to keep strands smooth and hydrated. To prevent color from fading, add Alterna BAMBOO UV Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide to your daily routine.

Q: I have long, straight hair that gets tangled easily. Is there an easy haircut that works for my hair texture, especially in warmer weather?

A: The bob is a classic style that appeared on the latest fashion runways and is adaptable to almost any texture. Ask your stylist whether a smooth, polished bob or one that’s choppy and textured works better for your hair type. For daily styling, start with a thickening treatment like Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Instant Hair Thickening and Straightening Serum. Hair expert Errol Douglas tells Glamour UK that the secret to a gorgeous bob is “all in the cut. After that, keep product to a minimum and build in the body and shine with a rough dry that is speedy and locks in moisture." Want something more dramatic? Spring for a cutting-edge pixie cut that’ll keep you extra cool in hot weather.

Q: I have thick, messy hair that’s hard to style. How do I look polished rather than careless, without spending a lot of time and energy on my hair?

A: Embrace your natural hair type with one of the season’s hottest – and easiest – hair trends: laid-back mermaid waves. For ultra-low maintenance waves, use a leave-in conditioner like Philip B Lovin' Leave-In Conditioning Creme and braid hair into one or two plaits before going to bed at night. Undo the braids in the morning and run your fingers through your hair, applying a lightweight treatment such as Alterna BAMBOO Beach Summer Sunshine Spray to eliminate any frizz and enhance shine. If you need something more professional for the office or a special occasion, opt for a chic, low ponytail secured at the nape of the neck. Even unruly hair types can master this glossy, sophisticated look with the help of a finishing spray like Alterna BAMBOO Shine Luminous Shine Mist.

Q: My hair is very thin, so I usually wear it down instead of trying ponytails or other styles. How can I make my hair more voluminous?

A: There are a few things you can do to help thicken and volumize your hair. Joshua Zeichner, MD, recommends using conditioners formulated for fine hair so it won’t get weighted down, according to WebMD. Also, be sure to protect your hair from heat and over-processing. If you dye, perm or relax your hair, additional heat can cause breakage, Jeanine Downie, MD, tells WebMD. To prevent further thinning, avoid pulling your hair too tightly in different styles, like ponytails and braids. You can make your hair appear more voluminous by applying a volumizing product before styling, such as Ojon Volume Advance Volumizing Styling Spray.
