Q. Although I know it’s best to limit washing to a few times per week, I’ve also heard that there’s a technique to proper cleansing. Can you share this method with me?

A. To keep your strands healthy, hydrated and free from frizz, it’s important to employ the right cleansing techniques. “Shampoo your hair using your fingertips and apply and massage to the scalp. This will clean your scalp and natural oils, but leave the dry mid shaft to ends of your hair in better condition,” hair stylist Ken Paves explains to Harper’s Bazaar. “The water and shampoo, as it rinses over the ends of your strands, will lift away any styling products or environmental debris but won't cause further dehydration.”

Q. I’ve heard good and bad things about straightening treatments. Will they damage my hair – or can they help to eliminate unruliness?

A. Keratin-straightening treatments can provide long-lasting relief for women hoping to fight back against unmanageable strands. With results that can last up to six months, these treatments are a welcome respite from the battle against frizz. If you want to prolong the effectiveness of your treatment and minimize damage to your hair, look to Liquid Keratin Infusing Deep De-Frizz Conditioner, which can help to replenish lost protein, restore strength and enhance shine – leaving locks silky and smooth.

Q. My hair seems to get frizzier the more often I comb it. Can you recommend a brush that can help to control flyaways?

A. For a premium brush that won’t distress your strands, reach for a Mason Pearson Handy Bristle Boar Bristle Hairbrush. Handcrafted by artisan designers, these 100% boar bristle brushes are considered the ultimate grooming tool, and can help to evenly distribute the natural oils from your scalp, for brushing that requires minimal effort – resulting in maximum smoothness, manageability and shine.

Q: I want to buy a Clarisonic device but I don’t know what to choose. What is the difference between the Mia 1, 2 and 3 devices?

A: Each device is named for its speed setting. The Mia 1 has one speed, the Mia 2 has two speeds to choose from and the Mia 3 has three different speeds. In addition to the speed differences, the Mia 3 also comes with a drying stand that converts to a charging station, which the Mia 1 and 2 do not include. All three devices use the same, innovative technology and are compatible with all of the Clarisonic skincare products and brush heads.

Q: I don’t usually struggle with acne, but lately I feel like I have constant blemishes popping up randomly on my face. How can I get rid of these?

A: For those who don’t have to deal with the daily agitation of acne, it can be difficult to know how to handle a bad blemish when it decides to rear its ugly head. To efficiently minimize blemishes, try a spot treatment. The Jurlique Blemish Cream works miraculously for pesky pimples and is completely natural. This product helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and soothes any skin irritation through the use of natural ingredients such as calendula, witch hazel and tea tree oil. These ingredients will soothe skin, clear up any existing blemishes and control oil production to prevent future breakouts.
