Best Kept Secrets for Healthy Hair
Learn how to keep your hair shiny, soft and bouncy by stealing these expert tricks
Turn down the heatAlthough you may be tempted to blow dry, curl, straighten, perm or color your hair (or, do all of the above), consider the ramifications of overdoing it. The more you process your locks (be it to tweak the color, texture or look of your hair), the worse off you are in terms of overall hair health -- including shine and softness. Scale back on what you do: for example, use heat styling tools every other day (rather than daily), and color treat every three months (rather than every six to eight weeks). Your hair will look so much shinier and have less split ends as a result, says actress and model Natalie Dickinson (you may have seen her on episodes of "Prison Break").
