1.    Repair damaged locks. For most students, summer is packed with friends and fun, with little time set aside for serious hair care. For many, September brings lifeless, sun-damaged locks. To nurse hair back to health, try these strategies: Trim locks, rehydrate with a moisturizing shampoo, avoid over-styling with hot tools and don’t wash too often.

2.    Discover beauty on a budget. Going back to school isn’t cheap. Pricey textbooks, tuition and basic supplies often leave little wiggle room in a student’s wallet to afford an updated arsenal of cosmetic, hair and skin care formulas. But students can work within their budgets.
Look for 2-in-1, multipurpose products that offer more bang for the buck. Also — while looking for affordable formulas — always inspect the label to make sure that the product contains ample amounts of the desired active ingredients and few fillers like water and alcohol.

3.    Embrace a green beauty routine. Campuses across the globe are encouraging students to help preserve the planet. Embrace an eco-friendly beauty routine by looking for products that are made with all-natural or organic ingredients and packaged in recycled or sustainable materials.
Thankfully, organic products are no longer exclusive or expensive. A growing market of green goods includes formulas that are affordable, effective and specialized to meet every beauty demand.
