Q: My long hair gets superdry in the summer. What's the best way to care for it?

A: "People with long hair need to treat it with special care or it can get strawlike," says Ken Paves, an L.A. hairstylist whose clients include Jennifer Lopez. To do: Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner (on ends only) every other day. Rinse with water alone on off days. Avoid heat-styling (blow-drying, flat-ironing) as often as possible, but if you must, prep hair with a protective spray, such as Charles Worthington Results Stay Cool Spray, first. Another tip: When you're at the beach, spread some of the sunscreen you use on your body through your hair so that it doesn't dry out and get crispy.
