If you’ve ever colored, highlighted, straightened, heat-styled or had a day of (unprotected) fun in the sun, odds are your hair is at least a little bit damaged. Throw in towels and pillowcases made of unfriendly fabrics, and you have all the ingredients for dry, brittle, breakage-prone strands.
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
There is definitely a nip in the air. When I walk outside, I can’t get enough of the gorgeous caramel-colored leaves that keep on piling up, practically begging someone to jump in them. I’ve also started collecting wood and can hardly wait to give my new fireplace a go.
Can you tell that Fall is definitely my favorite season (with winter not far behind)? But, the one thing I can do without is the dry outdoor air and even drier indoor heat combo that more often than not leaves me with thirsty, dull, lackluster, fried-looking locks.

Nobody likes frizzy hair, something I’m intimately familiar with. That’s why news of Klorane’s Papyrus Milk Anti-Frizz range caught my eye. Renowned as the first form of paper, papyrus also was used by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 1551 BC as a scalp and hair remedy.
Using only papyrus plants grown in the sandy, humid soil of eastern Spain, the Klorane products nourish and smoothe hair with essential fatty acids and phospholipids.
The line includes Extra-Gentle Shampoo with Papyrus Milk (3.4 oz. $6; 6.7 oz. $13, 13.4 oz. $18), Conditioner with Papyrus Milk ($14), Mask with Papyrus Milk ($24) and No-Rinse Care with Papyrus Milk – a leave-in styler – ($24).
