Tidings! The Holiday Season brings parties, socializing, awkward relatives, and lots and lots of things to drink, like hot toddy’s, spiked eggnog and mulled wine. If you’ve ever drank way too much, you’ll  know that alongside the headache, the shakes and the fear, symptoms also include the skin feeling deflated and dry. You may not notice it much with all the other aches and pains but alcohol’s proclivity for creating dryness extends to your hair, leaving it brittle. Hair needs constant nourishment and your follicles rely on zinc and folic acid to maintain strength. Alcohol can affect these nutrient levels, which can even cause loss and breakage. Obviously the best solution to keep hair healthy is to drink in moderation, but since that’s not a choice many make over the Holidays, pick up a few other healthy hair habits instead. Get details below.  Click for StyleNotes →

A fresh haircut is exciting, but it can also be a little awkward. The first few days of a new cut, it never looks quite right. Have you ever wondered why? Is it simply because you’re getting used to seeing something different or is it really true that a haircut settles over time, that it actually looks better once it’s been lived in? The truth is its a bit of both. Click the notes for details. Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →




There’s no one haircut that is low-maintenance for everyone. An easy, wash-and-go style depends on your particular hair type and texture. Medium density wavy hair cut into a long bob will look great with little more than a casual tousle, while the same cut on thick coarse hair will require serious styling to look polished. So what are the easiest, low-maintenance shapes for your hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

It’s easy to give in and accept your savage strands, or give up and go for a basic ponytail, but there’s a better way. The best way to stop bad hair days is to prevent bad hair from happening in the first place.

In the 90s, my favorite beauty product was a bottle of leave-in conditioner which I used to detangle my hair after washing it with cheap drugstore shampoo. My hair was waist-length back then, and my baby-fine texture looked greasy and limp if I used a rinse-out type conditioner. Since then, I’ve discovered better shampoos, and a number of light-weight conditioners that work effectively with my hair type. I forgot about leave-ins. But recently I’ve started using ARROJO’s cream whip, and I’ve fallen in love with leave-in all over again. A great leave-in does way more than detangle.
