Investing in a good Moisture lock shampoo and hydrating conditioner will keep that shine in your hair and make you feel like you are walking on sunshine all your way through this winter.

Static Hair 

Yes! Static hair can become one of those early mornings groans. Winter months have much less of the humidity than in the summer. Which causes patrons, neutrons, and electrons to move around in the air causing a lot of static electricity. Especially with those lovely woolly warmers. Avoid this by using natural brushes and combs, stay away from the plastic. Use a hair serum or leave in products. Using an ionic hair dryer can work wonders to tame those literally static flyaways.
