Holiday plans need not exclude your hair. As the planning, shopping, cooking, and traveling bustle of the season begins, don’t forget to treat your tresses! Below are our top picks for nourishing hair treatments to match your every hair necessity. Best of all, you can sneak these treatments in overnight and they won't break the bank!
How To: Pick a product below to meet your hair needs. Comb through your clean, damp hair to remove any tangles. Apply the selected product to your hair, focusing on the ends. For especially thin or oily hair, avoid applying to your roots. For thick or frizzy hair, apply all over. Wrap your head in a silk scarf or wear a shower cap to bed. In the morning, shampoo and condition your silky-soft, refreshed hair.
