We compiled the best hair care tips from leading experts to simplify styling and keep your strands glamorous through the holiday season.

The holiday season is here and we know exactly what you’re thinking: How am I wearing my hair for Christmas? With so many options these days, choosing one look can be very challenging. We asked a few experts in the industry to give us a heads up on the best hair care and styling for the holiday season.

Exfoliate your scalp! Dr. David E. Bank, founder and director at The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery says a quick remedy for a flaky and itchy scalp is to exfoliate. “You can use a mild facial exfoliator or a product specifically designed for your scalp,” he says.

Wear a versatile hairstyle. “If you have braids get them put in in a way where you can put them up in a bun, ponytail, or even curl them,” says celebrity stylist and MIZANI artist Cesar Ramirez. And, if you decide to see a stylist for your look, don’t wait until the last minute. “Waiting until the final hour can cause unwanted stress that you and your stylist don’t want!”

Replenish your strands. Rejuvenate dry hair by using a reconstructing tresatment. We like, Nexxus New York Salon Care Emergencee Reconstructing Treatment because this at-home treatment deeply penetrates the hair fibers to repair protein structure.

Wear bobby pins. “I'm really into pins right now—I think it's kind of cool. I think when you put barrettes or embellishment in the hair it can be kind of cheesy, but when you do a cool look with bobby pins, it's actually more grown up,” says Ramirez.
