Q
I have extremely dry hair. It’s hard to style and very frizzy. What do I do? —Nichole

A
Deep condition your hair with a balance of protein and moisture to help build hair strength and create a foundation to hold much-needed moisture. Also, reduce the amount and frequency of heat styling. Give your hair a rest by setting or molding your style. I also suggest a haircut to remove damaged hair that is not in condition to mend. If you an, see a professional stylist and get a good start o the new you.
