Winter does have some redeeming qualities. After all, who doesn't love wrapping their hands around a steaming mug of hot chocolate? Or building then inhaling a gingerbread house?
One of its major downsides? A whole plethora of hair-raising problems. Literally.
A lack of moisture in the air sucks our strands and scalps dry causing itchiness, static, frizz and even breakage. During these colder months, it's vital to stock up on products that moisturize and protect. As well as guard against the elements.
From skin care for your scalp to unconventional shampoos and conditioners, these products will be your seasonal best friends. That's because they'll deliver healthier hair even in the middle of winter. Plus, they'll help you look your best for all of those upcoming family gatherings.
