Happy New Hair!
Healthy, strong, glossy hair never goes out of fashion. It's also the foundation of any great do; the ultimate style starter. But the cold weather zaps the hair and scalp of moisture, which can lead to frizz, breakage, hair loss and a flaky, itchy scalp. It will also make your hair look less shiny, flat, and dull. So, just as you scale up your skincare routine in the winter, now is the time to do the same with your hair care. The scalp is an extension of the skin on your face so just as susceptible to seasonal changes.
Get your hair into its best shape and keep it there by following my hair health workout and using the right combination of my skincare-inspired haircare. It'll be one intention for the New Year that's easy to keep.
