MYTH: Frequent trims make hair grow faster
Truth: You are likely to have heard your mother tout the old adage that hair will grow faster with frequent trims. And while cutting hair may make it appear healthier, it has no effect on growth rate.
This season brings sunshine, flowers and outdoor parties that demand gorgeous hair. Achieve salon quality results for those occasions when hair matters most with a little help from the Nexxus Nourishing Botanicals line and the below tips from celebrity stylist and Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso (who you probably recognize from watching Shear Genius on BRAVO):
· The sun may feel therapeutic, but it can also rob hair of its natural oils and vibrancy. Safeguard locks with a nutrient-rich conditioner with added emollients and plant proteins, like Nexxus Botanphuse.
Nexxus Salon Hair Care is back as the official hair care sponsor for the third season of BRAVO’s hit reality series, Shear Genius, a new style of competition. Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso offers tips on styling so that anyone can achieve a salon style at home.
1. Apply a volumizing gel styler, such as Nexxus Lavish Body, to damp hair, and then blow-dry using a large round brush.
2. While hair is still warm, wrap two inch sections around large Velcro rollers and allow hair to cool.
3. Remove rollers and back comb each section at the root to create lift and body.
4. Use fingers to shape sections into a unique style and pin curls randomly in the back. Then spray hair with a strong-hold hairspray, like Nexxus Maxximum, to hold the look in place.

How-to Get Natalie Portman’s hairstyle at Oscars 2009:
Step 1: Apply a volumizing styler to the roots, like Nexxus Root Exxtend, to add body into the hair.
Distribute a medium-hold mousse, such as Nexxus Mousse Plus, throughout hair to and maintain and support the structure of the style. More modern updos employ product instead of teasing to build body, for a softer, healthier look. Blow dry hair with a large round brush, concentrating on the ends to smooth the hair.
