Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
The summer beauty dream: A manageable mane.
DO: Get tool savvy
For those with straight hair, Charles Baker Strahan, Herbal Essences celebrity stylist, suggests using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to polish strands, like Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, $4 each, and a large boar bristle brush rather than a synthetic one. "Natural fibers help to smooth the cuticle layer," he says. "Embrace your natural texture! Our genetics often do us favors and give us something we should try to work with for a reason."
DON'T: Try too hard
"This applies to anything with style. What makes things chic is a sense of being effortless. The more you try, the more it shows. If you use too much product or over-work and over-process your hair, it usually shows," says Baker Strahan.
