I use dry shampoos all of the time. I was re-introduced to dry shampoo early last year. Keratin Complex Therapy STYLE Lock Launder is a good one. I love the name! The thing about dry shampoo that I like most is that you can use it as a styling aid too…at least I do. It gives lots of volume at the root. Just be sure you allow it to dry before styling or teasing. If you are using it to refresh hair allow it to dry for a minute and just comb it through.

I love to shop Sephora. There you can find Couture Colour’s Pequi Oil Treatment. It’s good for all hair types to restore soften & shine, get rid of frizz & mend split ends. If Pequi Oil is new to you, it’s derived from the Pequi Fruit. It contains anti-oxidants, Vitamin & E, proteins & lipids. The word on the street is that Gwyneth Paltrow and Sandra Bullock are fans of Pequi Oil products. You can get the scoop on the entire Couture Colour line at hsn.com & order there too.

4. Emma Stone recently unveiled bright, blonde locks at The Golden Globes—what’s your advice to women who want to make a drastic color change before a big event?
