Winter Effects on your Hair
Everyone loves to have lustrous, healthy and shiny hair all throughout the year but different seasons have different effects on your locks. Hair care routines change as the seasons change.

All these factors which occur in winter cause your hair to look unattractive.
The Need For Cuticle Care
Cuticle is the part of your hair strand that covers the hair shaft. It is basically the protective layer.
