If your ends are starting to fray, your color is looking dull, or your curls are looking limp, then it's time to call on the big guns: hair masks and intensive treatments. Think of hair masks as a much more concentrated version of conditioner that aims to address whatever your hair woe might be, whether that's a lack of moisture, an overabundance of heat tools, greasy roots, saggy curls, brittle ends, or faded highlights. "Hair masks are a great way to get the condition back, whether you're suffering from loss of moisture or lots of damage from over-styling," London-based hairstylist Lewis Pallett told POPSUGAR.
Protect your hair from heat with these expert-approved products.
Sleek and smooth hair, right this way.
Many have written love letters to their shampoo, conditioner and hair oil, so I wasn’t surprised to see their newest product receiving the same praise. Introducing the No.8 Bond Intensive Moisture Mask: the first hair mask in their collection that promises shine, smoothness and overall moisture (aka three of my favorite things). Given that I’m always looking for a good hair mask, this was the perfect opportunity to try the popular brand and bring some life back to my curls.
It's less than $40, FYI.
If you are tired of spending hours in the bathroom using a variety of products to dry and style your hair and want to re-create the salon-quality blowout you have been unsuccessfully attempting at home for years, a hair dryer brush could be the solution you never knew you needed. Hair dryer brushes effectively style and dry your hair at once, combining the power of a round brush and hair dryer in one tool. The bristles allow you to de-tangle your hair, and the heat settings allow for flexible styling options.
Don't try this at home, kids.
The products and tricks you need to smooth your hair this summer.
In the GH Cleaning Lab, we test all kinds of vacuums to find the best ones, including handheld vacuums, stick vacuums, canister vacuums, HEPA vacuums, robot vacuums, and much more. Perhaps most importantly, every vacuum we evaluate gets tested on "pet hair” — a.k.a.
For smaller messes, a good handheld vacuum provides quick cleaning without a lot of heavy lifting and without hogging precious storage space. With handheld vacuums, you might even consider more than one as they don't just tackle messes inside your home: stash one in the garage to keep a workshop, garden bench and your car clean, too.
Although it's impossible to choose one style we love the most on Hollywood's resident hair chameleon, this side-swept braid is certainly up there. Only one word comes to mind: F-I-E-R-C-E. Ciara, a hair chameleon, has donned many styles, but this voluminous high ponytail is one of my all-time faves.
The recipes you need to make a hair-saving mask from your kitchen counter.
PSA: Sunscreen is nonnegotiable (!). K, I know you already know this, but lemme just say it one more time for the folks in the back: Your skincare routine isn't complete without sunscreen. Sunscreen is huge in the K-beauty world, and unlike most SPFs, a lot of these formulas are spiked with impressive skincare ingredients (think: niacinamide for brightening, aloe vera for soothing, or lightweight oils for hydrating).

This makes Nebraska the 10th state to end race-based hair discrimination.
If your hair is looking a bit blah lately and you don’t feel ready to head into a salon just yet, you might want to consider an at-home hair gloss. When used correctly, a hair gloss can give lackluster strands...
On the other hand, depending on what climate you live in, the air can be dry, which sucks any available moisture out of your skin. Since there's nothing worse than feeling, and looking, like you could use a few glasses of water, we've turned to Sephora to shop for the best hydrating skincare products. These 18 picks are lightweight enough for the summer, but they won't dry you out, and they won't make your skin feel stripped.
In 2019, California became the first state to pass The CROWN Act to make natural hair discrimination illegal. Since then, the bill has gained much-needed momentum, and numerous state legislations are following suit. Now, Tennessee is the latest state to put The CROWN Act in motion. State senators unanimously passed the bill, which stands for Creating an Open and Respectful World with No Racism, with a vote of 28-0. The bill will now go to the Tennessee House of Representatives for a vote. Under the proposed law, employers and schools will be prohibited from discriminating against Black people who choose to wear their hair naturally or in protective styles. Senator Raumesh Akbari led the charge and celebrated the vote on Instagram. “My mom is known as ‘The Hair Doctor,’ and growing up, I saw so many people find dignity & self-respect in being able to wear their hair naturally,” Senator Akbari shared. “No one should be shamed or denied opportunities because of their natural hair, and that’s what the #CROWNAct is all about.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Raumesh Akbari (@raumeshakbari) Tennessee isn’t the only Southern state making strides to end hair-based discrimination. In July 2020, Virginia became the first Southern state to make The CROWN Act law. Louisiana State Senate also passed The CROWN Act on May 3, moving the bill to the House for deliberation. Louisiana Senator Troy Carter, who championed the bill, shared that he hopes the House passes it “quickly.” According to local news, the bill will go into effect if passed by the House on August 1. The CROWN Act should be up for very little debate: Black people have been subject to discrimination, bias, harassment, and even death — far too many times — on the basis of physical appearance. Implementing The CROWN Act across the United States is a step in the right direction to creating a safer, more equitable world for Black people, and we’re looking forward to seeing more states get on board.
