Hair Story: Tress Tips for Fall

Beat dryness with these celebrity conditioning treatments.

Published September 30, 2011

It’s the perfect season for capes, boots, scarves and…dryness. While you outfit your body in luxe looks, your tresses are taking a beating from the rapid weather changes. Take a cue from healthy hair celebs like Tia Mowry, Sanaa Lathan and Taraji P. Henson and slather your mane in hydrating treatments that help you retain moisture.

New mommy Tia Mowry loves to use the MoroccanOil Oil Treatment. “You can put it on before you shampoo, and after you wash it out, it makes your hair nice and smooth. Just use a little bit,” she tells


Taraji P. Henson’s stylist, Dante Bradshaw, lavishes Henson’s textured hair with Aveda Brilliant Conditioner and follows up with Aveda Brilliant Damage Control just before blow-drying. Both products prevent dryness and heat damage. Double duty!


Sanaa Lathan is known for her thick, lovely locks and the key to growth and fullness is using potent, conditioning crèmes. Phytospecific Vital Force Crème Bath is a must-have for anyone looking to nourish their mane. It quenches tresses with its infusion of jojoba, sesame and castor oils, along with strengthening keratin.


If possible, sit under a dryer for 20–25 minutes while using each of these treatments.
