Bad Hair Day?

Bleach your hair into oblivion? Tired of split ends? Follow this advice to rescue your mane.

Problem: You’ve cut your bangs too short.
Quick Fix: To help disguise the length of your bangs, sweep them to the side until they grow out rather than wearing them straight down on your forehead. Coat damp bangs with a pea-size drop of light-hold gel, then blast them to the side with a blow-dryer. You can also camouflage your handiwork by pulling the hair off your forehead with stylish bobby pins or a headband.

Problem: Split Ends
Quick Fix: Split ends cannot be fixed or mended; they can only be cut off. Be gentle with your hair and use a deep conditioner twice a week to help prevent further damage. Try to minimize the stress on your strands between cuts by avoiding vent brushes with plastic bristles, shampooing every other day and protecting hair from heat-styling by using a leave-in conditioner.

 Problem: You OD’d on highlights and your hair’s bleached out.
Quick Fix: Look for an allover, demi-permanent color (a long-lasting, temporary dye that washes out in four to six weeks) in a hue one shade deeper than your highlights to get rid of brassiness. If your hair still isn’t the shade you want, head to the salon to have a professional weave in some lowlights to reintroduce the darker undertones you’ve lost.

Problem: Dry, Dull Hair
Quick fix: Try leave-in conditioners that can add moisture to your hair and protect it from environmental damage that could lead to additional moisture loss. Look for products that contain hydrating botanicals such as rice milk, bamboo milk and milk thistle. Alternate your regular shampoo with a clarifying one once every few weeks to prevent product buildup.

Embrace your natural curls like Beyonce but avoid frizz by simply adding an anti-frizz serum to your morning hair routine. “I start off by adding a bit of Sebastian Potion 9 Lite Lightweight Wearable-Treatment Styler ($14; beautyencounter.com) to damp hair,” says celebrity hairstylist Jeremy Clark, who then gently scrunches the hair while blow drying on low with a diffuser. “Don’t comb it out!” he stresses. “Let it be natural and sexy.”
