As I sit here listening to Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite, it’s easy to list the things that many of us love about the holiday season – winter white, cashmere, virgin snow, the smell of spiced cider and good things baking in the oven, and overall, mirth and good cheer.
One thing I am sure we all are less fond of though, particularly if you live in colder climates, is the havoc that cold weather can wreak on our hair. Let’s face it – many of us are already waging a daily battle against dryness and the ensuing problems that it causes: lackluster, dull hair, brittle strands and worst of all, breakage.

Check out these winter hair care tips.
Buy a Satin-Lined Hat
Buying a hat with a satin or silk lining will go a long way to reduce the friction from knits that may threaten delicate nape or hairline hair. It will also help to keep moisture in.

Hola chicas! Dr. Phoenyx here and today we’re going to be chatting a little about similarities and differences in caring for relaxed vs. natural hair. Now contrary to popular belief, “caring” for relaxed hair is not that drastically different than caring for natural hair. And I can say this from personal experience.

But in the general sense, whether I was working with relaxed or natural hair, I made sure to follow certain basic principles- especially since my ultimate goal was to have long, healthy hair.
