Q. I seem to be doomed with limp locks. No matter what cut, style or length…the gang always plays dead. What simple product can you recommend for an “on the go” gal to help turn up the volume?
- Limp Locks

04385988904A. I asked our beauty contributor, Mickey Williams, for help with your limp locks. She recommends the Kerastase product line. The only issues with this line are price, and that you practically need an expert to tell you which product you should use. Ask your hairstylist to look at the texture and volume of your hair and to write the “prescription”.

Another sure way to make the gang play is to get a bottle of Beach Spray from Bumble and Bumble and use this product exactly as directed. The salt in this product brings curl to even pin-straight hair. Another thing to consider is using a leave-in conditioner rather than one in the shower. Sometimes we can over condition hair, creating a heavier strand that just lies flat. Again, Bumble and Bumble makes a very lightweight leave-in conditioner that is exceptional. It’s a bit more pricey, but the results are worth it.

Q. I have been searching everywhere for a good quality hair straightener that dries and straightens hair at the same time. I know that there are a lot out there, but I am looking for one that really works. I was wondering if you could help me find one for under $100.
-Flat Out

B00019Mjq8.01-Aujfgu7Cgs4Fi. Scmzzzzzzz -1A. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen a perfect drying straightener on the market. Reason being, the time it takes to get tangled hair or wet hair through them. BaByliss Pro 1½“ Vented Ceramic Straightening Iron is the best one I have seen in this price range, but hair can be at most damp when you begin.

Q. I have very pale skin and have experimented with sunless tanners for years. I recently started using Neutrogena’s MicroMist spray (which Stylebakery recommends) and I love it! But I was wondering, how often should I reapply? I don’t want to get too dark but I want my color to be consistent so it doesn’t look fake.
-Fake Bake

300-7A. The look of most sunless tanners only lasts a few days and then you have to find the time to reapply, wait to dry and hope your elbows, ankles and hands don’t look funny. So, for the sun-kissed look all year long without hand stains, try the new Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer. They make it for fair and darker skin tones and you can use it every day to maintain color over time.
