3. Boost Shine
"Dull, overstyled hair benefits from regular olive- or jojoba-oil masks," explains Goddard-Clark. Starting at the roots, brush a quarter cup of natural oil (synthetic oils don't work as well) through dry hair and leave it on for an hour. Blast the ends with a dryer for five minutes to help oil penetrate deeper. Skip the roots the scalp emits enough warmth on its own, and applying extra heat could lead to greasy textures later.
MC Tip: Cut washing time and add shampoo to strands before they get wet to dissolve the oil faster.
