With love in the air, winter is expected to be still around the corner. One of my favorite winter pass time is to cuddle in the quilt with some interesting book, freshly baked cookies, and beat the chill with copious mugs of hot creamy coffee. While, I love everything about winters – food, festivals, bonfires and coffee dates, my hair actually dread this cold weather. Frosty winds take all the moisture and luster off my hair.
I have normal to dry hair that become excessively dry and limp with the onset of winter season. And this time, I also started losing several of my precious strands to the harsh effects of the weather. Looking for ways to keep my hair shining and healthy during the winter season, I found this interesting write up: “6 Must Read Tips for Healthy Winter Hair” on a Home Shopping Network Site written by their beauty expert, Ann Colville Somma.
