Problem: Dull hair
Your hair gets the winter blues too. Because of air conditioners and heating in the winter months, hair can lose its natural sheen and not reflect light. Be sure to add a hair mask to your at-home hair routine once a week for 10 minutes, and spritz your mane with some heat protectant before styling. It’s always a good idea to get regular in-salon treatments too to keep your hair ultra-luscious and shiny. Try these products for dull winter hair…
