4 Dry-Scalp Treatments That Also Make Your Hair Grow Faster

4 Dry-Scalp Treatments That Also Make Your Hair Grow Faster

A flaky, itchy scalp is one of those unspoken beauty struggles that tons of people deal with but no one wants to talk about. Of course, it’s only natural that the skin covering our skulls could experience dryness just like the skin on any other part of our bodies. But the snowstorm of dandruff that often accompanies a dry scalp can be super uncomfortable and downright embarrassing. And as someone who exists in a fashion- and beauty-centric pocket of reality, there are few things I consider more annoying than a chic shoulder pad dotted with little white flakes. (especially because I wear predominately black clothing).  While alleviating the itchiness…

The 11 Best Shampoos and Conditioners for Hair Growth

The 11 Best Shampoos and Conditioners for Hair Growth

Hair loss is incredibly common, and (very frustratingly) it’s incredibly tricky to deal with. First of all, a certain degree of daily shedding is normal (most professionals say losing anywhere between 50 and 150 strands per day is normal), but anything more than that could signal some kind of underlying issue. Stress, nutritional imbalances, unsafe vitamin supplementation, the natural aging process, undiagnosed disease, and, heck, even your ponytail habit can all cause thinning or significant hair loss. So if you feel like you’ve been noticing more daily shedding than what’s normal for you, it’s imperative to see a doctor (a dermatologist is a good…

The Best Drugstore Beauty Routines for Makeup, Hair and Skin

The Best Drugstore Beauty Routines for Makeup, Hair and Skin

Courtney Higgs is my other WWW beauty editor half, and we have eerily similar taste in almost everything under the sun. Our Zodiac signs are supremely compatible (she’s a Cancer, and I’m a Taurus), and honestly, the only thing we’ve disagreed on lately is our preferential candy bar—she’s team Snickers, and I’m team Twix. Another major similarity that’s actually worth talking about given the nature of our jobs as beauty editors? Our unabashed, ridiculously expensive taste in beauty products. I don’t want to call us beauty snobs, per se, but we definitely swing upscale and spendy where our favorite brands and…

The 27 Best Curly Hair Products in Every Category

The 27 Best Curly Hair Products in Every Category

If this year’s quarantine has taught me one thing, it’s that my curly hair hasn’t gotten the love and attention it deserves from me over the years. Up until recently (April, to be exact), I had never even let my type 4 coils dry into their natural, springy shape. I was devoted to blow-drying and flat-ironing them bone straight every week like clockwork. Now, there’s nothing wrong with straightening your hair, but I began to realize that I was only doing it because I’d always considered my hair texture too wild, unmanageable, and, dare I say, unattractive to let it thrive in its…

The 5 Best Fall Hair Accessories Fashion Girls Are Wearing

The 5 Best Fall Hair Accessories Fashion Girls Are Wearing

When it comes to doing my own hair, I have zero patience for anything elaborate. Even the thought of the time it takes to curl or straighten my hair (for context, my hair is rather thick, and I am blessed with a decent wave pattern) is enough to make me tie it up and out of the way. This laziness on my part is largely the reason I’ve become obsessed with hair accessories.  With the power to make your hair look pretty with minimal effort, hair accessories have become my go-to when my outfit feels a little plain or I need a quick switch-up. So you…

9 Products for Longer and Fuller Hair, Lashes, and Brows

I don’t know if I should admit this, but… I can count on my hands how many times I’ve put on makeup since shelter-in-place orders started in March. In the pre-pandemic world, I had a very subtle makeup vibe anyway: A dab of concealer under my eyes, a stroke of mascara on my lashes, and a swipe of moisturizing lip balm, and I’d be set for the day. So it’s not like I’ve been skipping out on a major look for myself, but that hasn’t stopped me from wishing I’d just done those little extra steps whenever I preview my…

These Will Be the Biggest Fall Hair Trends of 2020

These Will Be the Biggest Fall Hair Trends of 2020

Talking about the onset of fall can be fairly stressful when you’re still enjoying the dog days of summer and the lovely relishes that come with it: socially distanced s’more assemblage, daylight at 8 p.m., and sweat-inducing temps at 8 a.m. Alas, fight though we did, it’s officially time to start thinking about fall and how our skincare routine, wardrobe, nail game, and hair color can be adapted as we prepare to ring in the new season. (If you’re so inclined, of course.) ICYMI, we already published a pretty extensive guide to 2020 fall hair color, but we thought we’d round it out…

How to Embrace Natural Hair

How to Embrace Natural Hair

Our hair says a lot about us. It’s part of our identity—something that has been with us through thick and thin, quite literally, and is a direct reflection of who we are at each stage in our lives. Hair is a unique form of self expression; thus, it should always be celebrated. Every woman has a story about her hair, and to my good fortune, my lovely friend and co-worker Anna Dominguez, Who What Wear’s associate fashion editor, was down to chat with me about all things hair. Below, Dominguez shares her personal hair journey (and not to mention some extremely cute childhood photos) in hopes…

10 Nourishing Hair Masks For Thicker Hair

10 Nourishing Hair Masks For Thicker Hair

Box braids are one of my favorite protective hairstyles. They’re low-maintenance, give me tremendous length, and offer a much-needed break from using heat tools on my delicate natural hair. I’d say these stylish plaits are an all-around win, except that after a couple months of carefree living, my strands are left in serious need of help in the thickness department. That’s where hair masks come in to save the day. These handy pots of nutrient-dense goodness are a catchall for any hair problem you might be experiencing that’s causing your tresses to appear more thin than you’d like. My post-braid…
