FAQs

Q: I’m looking for an easy, affordable DIY hair treatment that can restore and condition my hair after a day at the beach. Can you recommend a recipe?

A: For the perfect post-beach pick-me-up, the Huffington Post recommends an easy hair mask made with honey (to hydrate and boost shine) and buttermilk (to soothe and soften). Simply blend these two ingredients together and massage the mixture through your hair. Let it sit for a few minutes and rinse with warm water.

Q: I’ve noticed that many hair styling products contain SPF. What amount of SPF should I look for on the package for effective UV defense?

A: Kendra Aarhus of About Hair explains that many hair formulas – including leave-in conditioner, hairspray and styling products – contain between SPF 10 and 15. This level of protection is effective – so choose any hair product with SPF in this range.

Q: To protect my hair from sun damage, can I simply slather a standard sunscreen into my hair before heading outside?

A: Applying normal sunscreen to your hair will result in a greasy mess that’ll make you want to hide inside. But, you can use your favorite sunscreen to make a DIY UV spray to protect your locks. Simply add 2 teaspoons of sunscreen to one cup of water. Pour the mixture into an empty spray bottle, and mist your locks before and during sun exposure for effective UV defense.

Q: I have curly hair that gets a bit wild sometimes, and I’m starting a new job in a corporate office. Is it appropriate to wear it down?

A: People with curly or natural hair are often told to straighten it in a corporate environment to look more professional, but that’s not necessary. The important thing isn’t the texture of your hair, but that you style it neatly. A classic and easy-to-master style is half up half down. Use an anti-frizz serum like John Masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer and let a few curls hang down around your hairline to frame your face. Remember to leave your hair alone once you style it – curly hair gets frizzy when it’s excessively touched. Keep a hair elastic at your desk to make a ponytail or bun on those days when your hair just won’t cooperate.
