Holiday parties are just around the corner and while you might be keeping your eyes open for new holiday attire, it's time to start taking care of your hair so it looks just as shiny as your new dress.

New York City hairstylist Lucy Garcia Plank from Salon Bergdorf Goodman offers these four tips:

Moisturizing is Key
Keeping hair moisturized will help all of your holiday hairstyles look great. The dry winter air will quickly zap your hair of any moisture it has. Try not to shampoo often. If you have oily hair wash it every other day, and if you have dry hair, aim at washing it one to two times a week maximum.

Hair Masks are a Must
Another great way to keep hair hydrated is by using hair masks one to two times a week depending on your hair's texture. Use one teaspoon of coconut oil directly on your hair, starting on the ends of the hair and working it up towards the scalp. Go to work out or run an errand and leave in for 30-60 min then shampoo with the treatment still in the head and then rinse. This locks in the natural oils in the hair and keeps it looking shiny.

Take Care of Yourself From the Inside
"You are what you eat." Whatever you put into your body reflects your outsides. Be sure to drink plenty of water, and eat proper foods such as fish, nuts, and eggs helps to keep hair shiny. Taking a biotin supplement will also help. Biotin is a natural supplement that many people don't get enough of and that could be a contributing factor to dry, brittle hair. Taking biotin year-round to maintain a strong, healthy glow to their hair and it also helps with split ends.

Also consider vitafusion Gorgeous Hair, Skin and Nails, a great-tasting gummy multivitamin containing 12 key nutrients, including Biotin and Vitamins C and E to help nourish beautiful hair, skin, and nails from the inside out.

Keep Static Away
Dry winter months always create lots of hair static, which can ruin a great hairstyle. Sleep on a silk pillowcase, which can help to eliminate this issue. Unlike cotton, the silk pillowcase doesn't have any wrinkles in it and won't mess up our hair. To maintain your hair or hairstyle (a fresh salon blowout), sleeping on silk helps with the static as well during the winter when your hair is depleted of moisture.

Argan oil moisturizes the ends of your hair without leaving your hair oily. Use only a very tiny amount (pea-sized). If your hair is fine, stay away from the oils, instead use static guard sprayed in your hairbrush and brush your hair. For those with thicker hair, the argan oil will help keep your hair moisturized and reduce static and flyaways.
