With the cold weather hot on our heels, it's time to start focusing on good hair health, so crack out the deep conditioning treatments and get to work! Warmer air holds more moisture than cooler air. In the winter, the cold air that seeps into your home from the outside has lower humidity, meaning that not only does it carry very little moisture, but it also pulls moisture from your skin and hair. You may notice at the beginning of autumn your hair feels frizzier than normal and that's because it's lacking the vital moisture needed to keep it looking sleek and shiny. Not only that, but you're more likely to up the heat in your shower to warm up which also strips the natural oils from your lovely locks. To counteract this, we highly recommend adding a deep conditioning treatment into your weekly routine, and you'll find that your tresses are back to normal in no time!
