Has your hair become as frizzy, flyaway and staticy as mine right now?

Hey BFFs: I have a simple solution for winter hair, that I’ve tried and IS working, and can work for you too. Here’s the deal: I asked NYC celebrity stylist John Barrett of the John Barrett Salon, whose clients include Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Vanessa Redgrave, how to save my yucky dried-out winter hair. He explained THE BIG CULPRIT is OVERWASHING! Apparently, we shouldn’t be washing our hair every day…

HIS TIP: only wash your hair two or three times a week. INSTEAD — just rinse your hair with water and then use a little conditioner, so your hair feels clean and smells good. Then he recommends using a hair mask once a week, which will help hair cuticles re-bond. Now, I’ve been a daily hair wash addict for years, and I was horrified by the idea of not washing, especially since I work out almost every day. But I tried it: now I only wash my hair every other day and it’s — surprise — totally working. It looks better, still feels clean and BONUS — I save 5 minutes in the shower a few times a week.

As for shampoo — he recommends using one containing keratin or another protein-like product. If you want to try his “be cleansed” or “be conditioned” conditioner, you can go to Let me know if this tip works for you too!
