Asking for a “friend”: What’s the best way to get rid of cleavage hair?

August 17, 2019 at 05:00AM by CWC Whenever my “friend” is wearing anything that isn’t a crew-neck T-shirt—like a summer dress, or a deep V—she complains that all she sees when she looks down is her cleavage hair.

Dear derm: why do chin hairs appear in women and how do we make them stop?

July 31, 2019 at 08:00PM by CWC I remember when I first noticed it. I was going through my skin-care routine, when one stray (but surprisingly long) chin hair caught my attention.

A hairstylist gave me the 411 on whether or not sweat *actually* makes your hair dirty, and I am shook

July 29, 2019 at 12:38PM by CWC A hairstylist once told me that sweat is one of nature’s very own styling products, and the sentiment has always stuck.

7 at-home waxing products that make hair removal easier than ever

July 26, 2019 at 04:00AM by CWC I’ve tried at-home waxing exactly once—and the attempt ended with tears, wax all over my bedsheets (don’t ask), and spotty patches of hair patterned up and down my aching legs.

Wash your hair less with these scalp-first shampoos that bust through buildup

July 19, 2019 at 06:32AM by CWC Once upon a time we were told that we needed to wash our hair every single day. Here in 2019, however, we’ve learned that’s bull.

July 16, 2019 at 04:00AM by CWC It’s one of the most basic beauty rules around: If you’ve got split ends, you go and get a haircut.

July 12, 2019 at 07:55AM by CWC In high school, the name of the game was to use Sun-in, AKA that hair spray that somehow magically lightens your strands a shade or two as the summer months pass by.

Why almond oil might be the most underrated hair product for frizz

July 09, 2019 at 05:00AM by CWC I know what you’re probably thinking: Coating your hair with oil sounds like the exact opposite of what should happen to strands.

Sleeping with wet hair can give you that chic bedhead #lewk—but there’s a catch

July 08, 2019 at 04:00AM by CWC Come hell or hot (shower) water, I will not blow dry my hair.
