Q: WHAT'S CAUSING ALL THE BREAKAGE AROUND MY HAIRLINE? — Gretchen Walsh
A: Oh, the dread "mini bangs." At the root of the problem? Heatstyling, says hairstylist Patrick Ferrara of New York's Salon A-K-S. The quick fix is to blowdry less frequently, and when you do, use less tension with the brush. Before you blow, prep with products that have built-in heat protection and strand strengtheners, like Nexxus VersaStyler Artistic Designing Lotion and Paul Mitchell Super Strong Treatment.
