1 SUDS UP, BUT NOT DAILY Ad agencies want you to believe you need to wash your hair every day, but it can make hair brittle and lose its natural oils. It's not good to be "squeaky clean"!
2 TRY SEMI-PERM DYE, matched to your own color. It's a nice way to brighten your look, and it will fluff up thin hair.
3 GO GLAM WITH A SIMPLE PONYTAIL If it's low, it's more elegant. Twist a section around the base and pin it with bobby pins. Boom, you're done.
4 AND FOR MERMAIDS ... It's really important not to enter chlorine or the sea with dry hair. Wet it first, or even better, use a leave-in conditioner. Dry hair is vulnerable. If you're blonde, it can turn green!
