Patrick Melville AVEENO® Hair Care bundle #giveaway

Recyclebank - AVEENO

As an Aveeno Ambassador I had the chance to ask beauty questions to celebrity hairstylist Patrick Melville.  I asked Patrick a question regarding hair shine - see below.

I have long black hair that used to be shiny and silky, now it has lost some of its luster. How can I get it back?
"The best way to get back luster is to use the Aveeno Nourish+ Shine Shampoo and Conditioner along with the Aveeno Living Color Shine Glaze which can be used on all hair types. This will give you maximum shine and close the cuticle and boost the life back into your hair."
Here are some other Q&A's

What cut will create the most volume for fine, long hair? What should we ask for at the salon?
"The cut that is best for fine long hair is a cut that has long layers … some softer shorter pieces around the face. Also add a sweeping fringe that sweeps to the side and will create a lot of versatility and give hair maximum volume. Products are key such as lightweight volumizing spray at the root because as you know, volume comes from the root. Be careful and make sure to tell your stylist to keep the layers long as layers can also thin the hair if too short."

I'd love to hear Patrick Melville's specifics on haircare for extensions and haircare for mixed hair(like hair for half black / half hispanic, hispanic hair care problems)
"The best way to treat extensions is to make sure they do not stay in too long or grow out too much as this will put stress on your own hair when using styling tools. Best way to take care of them is to be sure to condition the every time you shampoo and to use the Aveeno Nourish+ Leave in Conditioner before styling. This will make the extensions more manageable and will lock in moisture. This also applies to African American hair or Hispanic hair as it tends to be drier by nature and more coarse. Like your skin, when its dry you need to apply more moisture. The leave in conditioner locks in moisture and helps elasticity to lessen breakage."
What great advice!  Grab your Aveeno hair products at your local grocery store or retailer.
