Coloring your hair gives it a boost of brilliance and brings back the dimension you were born with -- think of how a child's hair naturally has highlights and lowlights, says Tracey Cunningham, a celebrity colorist and creative consultant for Redken in Los Angeles.

Her advice: Skip the "permanent" shades designed to hide grays and opt for a "demi-permanent" instead -- it will give you rich color and tons of shine but contains less ammonia than a permanent formula, making it gentler. Cunningham likes Redken Shade ZQ, redkencolor.com for salons, because it's loaded with conditioning ingredients.

Use a shine spray. Finish your style with a silicone-based product to add instant gloss and help the cuticle look healthy, Skervin says. Try Tresemme No Frizz Shine Spray, $3.99, drugstores.
