kourtney kardashianOne of the many things the sisters Kardashian are known for is their hair. Long, strong, and shiny. That's the way they do it. But don't mindlessly finger your fried, frizzy locks whenever you lay eyes on them out of envy. Well, do. But take comfort in the fact that Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe all wear hair extensions. Kris Jenner has good genes, but not that good.

However, probably due to the fact that it's damn near impossible for new moms to spend hours on end in the salon chair, Kourtney recently stepped out sans extensions. And her hair looked good. A little less long, but still strong and shiny. And getting this hair -- yes, this hair! -- isn't all that hard. Even if you're a new mom like Kourt.

To start, you need a conditioning treatment. And no, you don't need to go to the salon. An old standby trick of mine is after the baby goes to bed, I hop in the shower, condition my hair with some sort of super intensive, ultra-hydrating mask type of thing -- and then don't rinse it out. I know, you've heard this trick. But, wait! There's more!

After getting out of the shower, throw a towel over your hair to soak up excess water (but please, don't use this towel on your face afterwards, as it can make you break out). Next, put your wet hair in a braid and wrap the braid with tin foil. Then blast the tin foil with hot air from your hairdryer for a few minutes. Leave the tin foil in for a bit to lock in moisture. Sleep with the conditioner still in your hair (but not the foil).

The next day -- when you have time! -- rinse out the conditioner, and shampoo as usual. When you get out of the shower, you'll immediately notice how much silkier your hair feels. Add a few drops of a serum and dry. Your hair will be SO much easier to manage, and it won't be tangly and brittle.

And there you have it. Kardashian-inspired hair. You're welcome.
