Come Clean: Remove product buildup by shampooing the scalp, roots and hairline. Avoid the ends, suggests Francis, as hair is the driest there.

Get Sleek: Products infused with oils—like argan, coconut or sunflower—instantly enhance shine and soften and revitalize hair without weighing it down, says De Souza. Apply daily to ends.

Cut the Powder: Dry shampoos and texturizing sprays can be chalky and make locks lackluster. Don't use too often and mist sparingly at roots.

Brush Up: A boar-bristle paddle brush detangles, stimulates the scalp and redistributes oils, says Petrizzi.

Color Safely: Refresh roots or cover grays with a demi-permanent formula. It's milder than a permanent process, since it's ammonia-free.

Sleep Easy: Pile hair up into a loose bun to keep it from being pulled around overnight.A silk or satin pillowcase can also help reduce friction.
