Helping hair recover from summer and getting into the fall swing

Posted by on Sep 4, 2016

By Andrea Freedman During this especially hot summer, many of us spent as much time as we could in swimming pools to stay cool. Now that the glow of summer is beginning to fade, split ends and damaged hair color may suddenly seem more noticeable than they did during the summer months. As September comes, with lots of social gatherings as well as parent-teacher meetings and back-to-work functions, some of us might be in need of a major hair overhaul. Not to mention new styles may be in order for the upcoming season!

\ by Andrea Freedman \ It is not always easy to keep up with regular grooming habits and feel our best once the cold weather arrives, but nicely shaped eyebrows can give eyes a fresh, more youthful appearance, even during the winter months.
