Our hands really take a beating over the course of a day, and many of these assaults affect their look and feel over both the short- and long-term.

Fret not, because according to Teresa Probst, Color Director at New York City’s Varin Salon, a major haircut isn’t the only way to eliminate hair damage. “Prevention goes a long way for preserving the health of your hair, even if you subject it to chemical processing or thrice-weekly blowouts,” she says. “The keys are to replenish lost moisture and shield your hair from the environment
