Changing Seasons Affect our Skin and Hair - What to do?

Whether it’s hot or humid or cold and dry, different kinds of weather can cause everything from dry, itchy skin, brittle hair to breakouts.

Luckily it only means making some small changes to your routine.

For the Skin

 For your hair

Whether you’re dealing with frizz, split ends or flat hair, lack of moisture in the air, it can leave hair feeling dry.

Step 1: 

Heat the Oil. Take your container of oil and put it into a small bowl that’s filled with very hot water. You’ll want the water level to be just as high as the level of oil in your container. It will take maybe a minute or two for the oil to warm up to just about the water’s temperature.

Step 2: 

Apply the Oil to Your Hair, Starting at the Scalp.

Step 3: 

Cover Your Head With a Shower Cap and Then a Hot Towel.

Step 4: 

Wait 30 Minutes to 2 Hours.

Step 5: 

Wash hair.

Deep conditioning with a hot oil treatment or a deep conditioner regularly can bring dry hair back to life.

You can also add a light-weight leave-in conditioner like Living Proof No Frizz Leave-in Conditioner, and let those locks air dry to keep them looking their best.
