Limp hair can get weighed down fast, which is why most women with fine hair typically steer clear from products — aside from the occasional volumizers and possibly hair spray. And the thought of using a leave-in conditioning treatment? Forget it. These heavy-duty hydrators are often simply too intense for fine-haired folk. Thanks to Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Leave-in Conditioning Foam ($15 at drugstores), though, that's about to change. This foaming product easily absorbs into fine hair, protecting already-fragile strands from styling without leaving hair greasy or making it fall flat. So now hair that could use a little lift can also enjoy some long-lasting nourishment, too.

Emma Roberts wore a modern French twist, inspired by the classic style worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival premiere of her film It's Kind of a Funny Story. "Emma is such a classic beauty, so I wanted to create a look that was sophisticated, but still fit with her youthful personality," said Nexxus Creative Director and celebrity stylist Kevin Mancuso, who created this feminine updo. This ode-to-Audrey hairstyle couldn't be more timely, as soon we'll all be thinking about what costumes to wear to Halloween parties. (And you can never go wrong with a style inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany's, no?) So to get Mancuso's tips, just keep reading.
If you color your hair, you know it takes some extra steps to give it the love it deserves, particularly if you're going for those red tones. Recently, reader Norabora reviewed Nexxus Dualiste Dual Benefit Conditioner ($16), a dual pump conditioner that protects color from fading and delivers volume to limp locks. Here's what she had to say:
I just started using this conditioner (along with the matching shampoo) this week. My hair has serious volume issues, but I also dye it red, so it's really important that I use products for color-treated hair. I was stoked when I saw the commercial for these products, and so far I am pleased with the results. The scent is also pleasant and not overwhelming like some other products I have used.

Finding an extra hold hairspray that doesn't look too stiff or flaky can be a challenge. Reader Lbirk has been one busy reviewer these days. Thanks for submitting all of your opinions, lady! Here's what she had to say about Nexxus Maxximum Super Hold Styling and Finishing Spray ($13.50).
Even though Nexxus uses descriptions like "Maxximum" and "super hold," which conjure visions of helmet head, this fine mist spray provides a really touchable hold with lots of shine. It doesn't flake if you need to brush through it for a style refresh during the day, and it doesn't build up. Very nice.

Determined to protect my hair against heat styling, I picked up Nexxus Sleek Memory Straightening Smoothing Spray ($12.99). When just a heat protectant spray would have done, I'm always curious about hair products that say they can change the texture of your hair (not products like at-home perms, but products like Wash 'N Curl Shampoo). But the claim Nexxus makes on this spray seems semi-plausible: their Sleek Memory technology can lock in the results of a heat styling tool. Whether that's true remains to be seen, but my hair definitely made it through a run-in with my flat iron without static. The downside is that my hair had a somewhat starchy feeling afterwards, which I suppose is better than being fried to the core. Can't win 'em all.
