Don't Want to Take Out Your Hair Extensions? Here's How to Maintain Them at Home

Just because you can't get to a salon right now, doesn't mean that you have to take out your hair extensions on your own. Removing extensions isn't exactly hard, but it's often something that - like hair color or getting a trim - people would rather leave to the pros. Since making a salon appointment isn't an option right now, though, there are ways you can extend the life of your hair extensions until you can get to your hairstylist. Read ahead to for a few maintenance tips from Shelly Aguirr...

14 of the Best Hair Straighteners and Flat Irons For Sleek, Salon-Worthy Hair

Straightening your hair might take work, but seeing the sleek, smooth, and shiny results can rival the feeling you get from a salon-quality blowout. Possibly the only thing more time consuming than the actual task of straightening your hair, though, is selecting the perfect hot tool for the job. The available options of flat irons and straighteners on the market are vast, and there are multiple things to consider: you have the different hot-tool sizes, ranging from as small as half an inch to a...

Celebrity Hairstylist Jen Atkin's Ouai Shampoos and Conditioners Got a Major Upgrade

In an attempt to stay positive, I'm looking at being in lockdown as an opportunity for those of us who need it to give our hair a much-needed break. I'm not worried about getting it cut, but rather leaving it the heck alone and not touching a hot tool. I've convinced my mom to use the time to go through the seriously awkward stages of growing out a 20-year-old pixie cut. I've told friends to spend the day with their hair covered in a nourishing treatment mask to treat fried ends. Well, celebrity...

Setting Up a DIY Foot Spa Should Be Your Next Self-Care Activity: Here's What You Need

You know the parts of a pedicure before the polish comes out . . . like the foot soaking, scrubbing, massaging, and moisturizing? Well, why not bring a similar self-care treat to your own feet? Sure, you may not have a special DIY foot bath, but if you've got a large, wide bowl, or even just a tub, guess what, you now have your own at-home spa with just a few more additions.

I've Always Been a Silk-Pillowcase Skeptic, but Here's Why I Finally Converted

Image Source: Night I love my linen sheets - like, a lot. I would shout my devotion from the rooftops if that was socially acceptable. So the idea of switching to a silk pillowcase always seemed a little pointless to me. I've always thought the hype of the silk pillow was a bit overblown; could a change in fabric really make that much of a difference to the overnight care of my skin and hair? However, seeing as I have a lot more time on my hands to do some experimenting (aka sleeping), I figure...

Taking Up "Hair" Space: 8 Black Women Talk About What Natural Hair Means to Them

Every Black woman has a unique relationship with her hair. I was like a lot of my peers in the early 2000s who grew up going to the beauty salon with our moms to get a relaxer and a roller set so we could have straight hair that was easier and "more manageable" - as we were told. I was almost content with this way of life (despite the fact that over time the chemicals were damaging to my hair), until one vivid moment. I remember being 13, walking with my mom and passing this woman who walked oh...

Your Nails Can Harbor Bacteria, Too - Here's How to Keep Them Clean

Washing your hands often is a key element to staying germ-free, but none of that matters if you're not also making sure you're sanitizing your nails. Your nails can also harbor bacteria and, if you're a nail-biter and/or frequently eat with your fingers (pizza, anyone?), those bacteria can easily be transferred to your mouth. According to Purvi Parikh, an allergy and infectious disease specialist with New York University's Langone Medical Center, germs transferring from the hands to the mouth ...
