Featured5 Tips to Fight Frizz 


Every year, around this time, my hair gives up. Months of controlling itself, despite humidity, heat and sun exposure, simply mount up when August's typically intense temps and moisture put it over the edge. That's because dry hair sucks up the moisture in the air, which causes the hair shift to expand. Hello, frizz!

For hair that's hot, but not bothered, by summer's most intense days, I've rounded up the top 5 tips for fighting frizz and navigating the season of sunshine flawlessly.

#1 Shampoo Less Frequently 


It's no coincidence that freshly shampooed hair has the most body and bounce. That's because shampooing strips hair of the natural oils that keep it tame.

PC loyalist Jennifer Ziegler shares her best bets, "My favorite color combos thus far are: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark w/ White Shatter & OPI Austin-tacious Turquoise w/ Navy Shatter," while beauty ambassador Lara Conn declares, "Believe the hype - Black Shatter is amazing."

The Celebrity Secret to Curly Hair Care 


For years, multi-cultural women with hard to manage hair traveled from store to store, trying to blend products in a hopeless attempt to tame their locks. (Sound familiar?)


Founders Wendi Levy and Kim Etheredge are two "mixed chicks" that created this product line because they needed it. Then, something happened...friends and family started encouraging them to package it, and soon they had a full blown business running out of the garage.


After a little door to door hustling, a few celebrity endorsements -- think Halle Berry, Macy Gray and Tracee Ellis Ross -- plus, tons of online customer support, MIXED CHICKS became a cult favorite for women who want to embrace, not change, their locks.
