And if the mobile salon isn't coming to a city near you, don't fret. You can sign up to win a one-on-one Skype session with my future husband, adorable stylist Harry Josh (that's him on the right, styling Audrina Patridge on the NYC stop of the tour). You know I'll be lined up when the salon hits SF, but what about you?
If you have no time to wash and style your hair, you can pump up the look with three basic ingredients: a round brush, a blow dryer, and a volumizing product, like Luxurious Volume Lavish Lift Root Booster ($6) or Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray ($18). First, hold the hair straight up on dry hair and spray the roots. Next, take a small section from right behind the fringe, wrap it around the round brush, and blow-dry, concentrating on lifting the roots for volume. Finish off by grabbing subsequent sections of hair back toward the crown, and there you go. It's instant volume without too much effort.
Recently, famed stylist John Frieda, along with Harry Josh, gave us tips on eliminating frizz on wet locks. However, let's say you just don't have time to go through the whole blow-drying process, or your already-styled hair is showing signs of frizz galore. Here are three simple tips from the stylists on battling frizz in a flash, all on dry (as in not wet) locks. To get their expert advice, just keep reading.
This conditioner did nothing for me. It left my hair coarse and rough, and it certainly did not make my hair more "brilliant." You should pass up on this one!

The other day, I featured Brandysbug's review of the shampoo, and now it's time to hear what she had to say about John Frieda's Root Awakening Nourishing Moisture Conditioner ($8), a hydrating product that helps create healthier hair at the roots. Here she goes:
I usually have to apply a hair mask because my hair gets dry, damaged, and unruly without it. The Root Awakening shampoo and conditioner have made my hair shiny and healthy-looking and have made me happy! Again, the eucalyptus scent is wonderful.

John Frieda's Root Awakening Nourishing Moisture Shampoo is formulated for dry hair, but it also works to help feed roots. Reader Brandysbug tried out the newer shampoo recently, and here's what she had to say:
I usually need to apply a hair mask after shampooing/conditioning, but I skipped it the past two days when using this shampoo, and my hair has been super silky and shiny. Plus, the eucalyptus scent is so refreshing in the morning.
