For hair that’s more mermaid than sea creature
The joys of summer hair: free highlights, beachy waves, breeze-blown volume. The doldrums: straw-like texture, frizz, split ends. Your ’do needs a wheatgrass shot, and Regis has developed the hair equivalent with DesignLine Ultimate Radiance. Pick up the sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner/styler, and defrizz spray, which contain such hydrating, sun-protecting, frizz-busting ingredients as cocoa- and mango-seed butters, seashell protein, sea buckthorn berry, and sea-algae extract. So that’s why mermaids have such great hair... $7–$11, Regis Salons, various locations.
