Besides hiring a hairstylist...

The Addictive HAIR MASQUE:
A once a week must-more for us post pool swims-when tresses weep for reparative complex help-our fav is the celeb anointed luxurious hair savior - J. F. Lazartique's Shea Butter-recommended for nourishing dry-thick locks.  The not so secret sauce-is the soothing moisturizing African seed-that yields a glorious aroma too. 

One of a trio of J.F. Lazartigue masques we swear by- the Soy Milk Masque is recommended for dry/thin/delicate, and the indulgent Ultra-Regenerating Masque enriched with hyaluronic acid, Collagen and Keratin. 
NOTE: as with all premium products made by this still privately owned company-where all the products are made in France-  J. F. Lazartique products are free of those sneaky toxic ingredients that are ubiquitous in USA brands of all price ranges...including parabens, sulfates, petroleum or mineral oil, phthlates, and sodium chloride while the newly packaged cult fav Coloring Emulsion-a permanent tone on tone-coats the hair cuticle is miraculously also a repairative formula-free of damaging ammonia+peroxide.
HINT: Stock up during the month of February- 1x a year 20% off sale. 

DO It YOURSELF.

For soft- touchable tresses-and frizz free looks-  our pals with amazing down to their braids--- swear by-is Jamaican Castor oil.
Dido-USDA Organic coconut oil and organic raw shea butter...our daily on the spot- wavyish hair thirst quencher-  using tiny pieces  grabbed from huge containers bought online-heated up in our palms...then worked through our hair.
FYI-coconutty smell fades after a few minutes.
