When Kim Kardashian started to promote dry shampoo, I thought it was disgusting. I asked my hairdresser about it and was shocked when she recommended it. I have tried many different brands, but my favorite so far is the TRESemmé line ($6.29). I liked it so much, that I bought a whole box. The dry shampoo makes your hair manageable, easier to style and you don’t have to wash it and dry it so often, reducing the damage.

The best way is to untangle your hair is while it's still moist. Doing it when it's dry starts friction and it makes your hair more electrified.

I dare you to find a hair treatment as damaging as the hot iron. I love mine, but during the frizzy hair season it only comes out in very few and special occasions.

Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil ($6.99) really works. I use it regularly, and it has kept my hair looking healthy. Pool season in Florida starts in March and by now my highlights would have been looking like straw. Not this year!

Even if you feel like abuelita, this is the best way to style your hair without the damage caused by the blowdryer, hot iron or hot rollers. I have velcro rollers, which stay in place without the need of any kind of pins.

Believe it or not, using hair spray protects your hair in more than one way. First, it helps to keep your hairstyle in place, which reduces the damage of hot tools. Also, keeps the humidity and electricity away from it.

No-rinse conditioners work longer in your hair and keep humidity at bay. One of my favorites is this one from Aveeno (three bottle package for $22.25). It has a very light texture, so you don't really feel that you have your hair lathered with product.
