Spring’s a great season and great reason to sport a straight ‘do, but not without the latest tools and products in thermal styling.
Straight strands that are full of bounce and volume are the ideal choice for Juicy ladies looking to go straight for spring, but not at the expense of misusing heat styling tools that often results in dried and fried locks.
“Using heated styling tools everyday could cause hair breakage,” says LAVETTE SLATER, Emmy award winning celebrity hairstylist on The View.
Instead of constant heat styling, put your hair on a schedule, alternating with no-heat styles. Buns, twists, braids, and wigs are heat-free alternatives that can help protect and give hair a rest from the tug and pull of heat styling. SLATER is known for creating custom hairpieces for The View co-host, SHERRI SHEPARD.
Hair should also undergo a thorough cleansing and conditioning process followed up by the necessary deep conditioning, hot oil or protein treatments before applying heat. Locking in moisture and protein is extremely helpful to hair health because it prevents hair from becoming dry and brittle, key things that inevitably lead to breakage.
When it comes to products, investing in quality products ensures maximum results and minimizes the likelihood of heat damage. “I use Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner to give the hair extra body and bounce,” says SLATER, an advocate for providing hair with the highest quality products.
Smooth and sleek styles will never go out of style but abusing thermal appliances could result in permanent hair loss.Taking the appropriate measures before applying heat to hair can also be extremely helpful in maintaining straight hair all year round.

Hair trends can be so fickle. As soon as you spend your paycheck acquiring products from whatever is the “latest,” a brand spanking new one comes right along.
Remember when olive oil was the be all end all, and then some bigwig oils named Moroccan and Argan took over? From serums and gels to finishing sprays and relaxers, every product on store shelves are being filled with whatever the “it” oil of the moment is.
Alas, that’s how the beauty product “fad system” works–but don’t fall victim. Juicy wants you get in with the oils that have not yet been “discovered” and exploited. These five oils are not yet as popular, so you can save money and they may even work better than what’s hot at the moment.

While conducting a skype interview with RACHEL RAY, the First Lady dished, “This is my midlife crisis, the bangs.”
OBAMA, who debuted her bangs shortly before her 49th birthday, went on to reveal why she decided to be out with the old and in with the new.
“I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs,” the First Lady says.
Juicy spoke to her famed hairstylist JOHNNY WRIGHT, the hands behind the shears used to create the First Lady bangs.
WRIGHT insists the First Lady was ready for something new, saying, “Anything we do is more of collaborative effort than me pushing an idea. She simply wanted a change, and it looks great.”
