If there’s one thing the Latina staff could all agree on about the Super Bowl halftime show, it's that Fergie’s hair was super gorgeous. To get tons of extra volume and a few more inches, the Black Eyed Pea clipped in temporary extensions for her moment in the national spotlight. Clip-in extensions are easy to attach, stay secure for hours (even if you bounce on stage like Fergie), and won’t damage hair since they’re temporary (hairextensions.com offers lots of options, or a hairstylist can make a set).

So, tell us:

It always surprises me how healthy and shiny abuela’s hair looks at her age and it’s because she is constantly using natural treatments on her locks that have been in the family for years! One of our favorites is an avocado hair masque. You're probably wondering: Why would I smear green goop all over my head? Well, avocado contains proteins and natural oils that moisturize and nourish your hair. This masque also calls for shea butter, which helps protect and repair a dry and damaged mane. Dedicate your Saturday afternoon to some self-pampering and try this DIY masque.

One of you recently emailed me this beauty question: My scalp is suddenly flaking. Is it dry skin or dandruff? And when I read it, I immediately scratched my head—not because I was stumped, but because I’ve been having the exact same issue!
This happens a lot in the winter. The dry air is sucking the moisture out of your skin—including the skin on your scalp, which causes it to flake. You’ll know that it’s dry skin and not dandruff because the flakes are very small (dandruff tends to have larger, irregular-shaped flakes).
