Thursday, I’m finally headed on a much-needed vacation, where I’ll have lots of wine and lots of pool time. Wherever you’re headed, sun, beach or pool, when on vacation remember that your great escape should extend to your locks. Holidays in the sun—and more specifically UV rays, humidity, chlorine and other things that can come with it, can seriously damage your strands. If you’re not taking the right steps to care for your hair, you may end up with faded color and dry hair as souvenirs. But don’t fret, I have a great list of things you need to bring with you on your next trip to keep hair healthy and gorgeous on your time off! –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →

You already know that washing your hair every day can dry it out and make your color fade faster, and yet, you can’t seem to give up the habit. You’ve tried skipping a day or two and your hair looks terrible: your hair line breaks out, your roots look greasy, and your strands feel limp and lifeless. You’ve seen all the cute “second day” hairstyles but your second day hair is only fit for a ponytail. You know that if you could suffer through a few months of bad hair everything would even out, but you can’t just look rough for 3 months! Sound familiar? Click the notes and learn my secrets for transitioning into less frequent shampooing without looking or feeling terrible. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
