Luckily, I haven’t spotted any grays just yet. Though there is this one wiry, white strand that pops up at the crown of my head when I get really stressed out, but I immediately pluck it out—no color correction needed (for now!). But I know many women who struggle with covering gray, especially because those hairs become brittle and less manageable when they lose their color. So when I heard about the new Redken Chromatics Beyond Cover (redken.com for salons), I brought in a special tester (my mom!) to try it out. The color gets delivered to the hair via nourishing Argan oil, so not only did my mom’s highlights look more vibrant and multi-dimensional, her hair was smoother and felt stronger than before coloring. Plus, the process covered all of her gray and stayed true-to-tone. Pretty amazing!

Cult favorite cure-all Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil is getting the model treatment this month: Catwalk stunners Angela Lindvall and Petra Nemcova, along with Josie herself, have decked the bottles in limited-edition designs that reflect the charity closest to their hearts. Ten percent of the price of each bottle sold will be donated to their respective causes— Healthy Child Healthy World for Angela, Petra’s own Happy Hearts Fund and Women for Women International for Josie. Virtually scent-free, the nongreasy, fast-absorbing argan oil inside is a superb nourisher for face, body and hair. Try rubbing it into cuticles and elbows, onto heels before slipping on socks, adding a few droppers to your bath for a moisture boost, and smoothing over fried strands for an instant hydrating fix.
