Trend Alert: Crimped Hair (Really... It's Back)

When the photos came in to cover this story, I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry. Cry laughing? I digress. Spotted recently on Christina Aguilera at a photo shoot and Tyra Banks on the red carpet, we feel we must warn you: crimped hair might be making a comeback.

Do we owe nostalgic trips with friends on Facebook to these returns to all things 80s and 90s?  I’m not sure if my hair can take another trip down memory lane, having narrowly escaped with practically triple-processed hair from the late 80s. I think my ends split as I typed this post.

If you do dare the crimping trend, remember to condition religiously before and after this process. We highly recommend a serious deep conditioner and Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask ($7) is the one to do the trick. Want further protection? Use a leave-in conditioner that repairs the damage, like Infusium 23 repairologie leave-in treatment ($5). You can pick both of them up at Drugstore.com, while you wait at home, considering whether you will try this beauty trend (for some of us) again.

And since this is most likely a passing fad, much like the return of the perm, opt for a budget-friendly crimping iron ($16) that doubles as a straightener.
