In our never-ending quest to make our hair regimen less complicated, we’ve found one of the most genius tools, ever! The Remington 3-in-1 Styler is a do-it-all hairdryer that comes with three attachments: the beach waver, which has a special airflow that spins hair into sexy, beachy waves a’la Vanessa Williams; the smooth concentrator, which creates sleek blowouts; and the lift-and-dry diffuser, a softer airflow that gives natural curls, kinks and coils a soft, defined texture. Tons of salon-worthy styles, in the comfort of our own bathroom? Sign us up.

The Remington 3-in-1 Styler, available at Target, $27.99.

The sun can wreck havoc on colored, chemically treated, and heat styled hair — but Kiehl’s has a solution! Quench thirsty tresses with their Sunflower Color Preserving Hair Care line, which comes blended with super-moisturizing ingredients like sunflower oil, apricot kernel oil and vitamin B. We love their Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovery Pak ($26, kiehls.com), a deep conditioner that strengthens lackluster, sun-sizzled strands while adding vibrancy and shine. Plus, it smells like a bouquet of sunflowers — a winning combination in our book.

When it comes to your hair, thin is definitely not in! Thinning, shedding and broken-off strands can be a result of stress, diet, hormonal changes (i.e., the pill or pregnancy), or even harsh haircare products, but there is good news.

The treatment comes with a lush volumizing shampoo, hair and nail capsules, and a follicle-nourishing cocktail of extracts, vitamins and proteins to be applied daily to the scalp. This four-week boot camp promises to leave you with lush, lustrous locks — whether your hair is relaxed, natural, or somewhere in-between.
