September 8, 2015 Beauty The Real Secret To Getting Gorgeous Hair You’re probably already aware, but Chicago has harsh winters. I mean, brutal. When I first moved here 3.5 years ago (woah, really?!) I prepared myself for the chilling winds and snow by stocking up on sweaters, a puffy jacket and winter boots. I won’t lie, I was really prepared and felt pretty much like a local from day one. The one thing I didn’t anticipate was how the change in the seasons would affect my hair and scalp. Coming from humid Texas, I’d never had any issues with dry skin. In fact, oily skin has been something I’ve struggled with for years, so imagine my surprise when my hair and skin drastically changed as the temperatures dropped. Now that I’ve lived here for a few years, I know that dry skin and hair are just a part of the changing seasons, and thankfully I discovered CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™. The global haircare brand focuses on nourishing the scalp for strong, beautiful hair year round. Like soil is to plants, a well-nourished scalp is the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair, making scalp care the real secret to getting beautiful locks! There’s so much focus on the ends of our hair, but 99% of hair’s natural strength and beauty actually comes from the scalp. Even though it’s not quite cold yet, I’ve started transitioning my hair for the upcoming season with CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo and Nourishing Daily Conditioner because it leaves hair hydrated for a full 24 hours and strong from root to tip. For the most part, I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to my beauty routine and I love that I can keep my hair feeling soft, hydrated and shiny by adding these products alone. If you live somewhere chilly and experience the same unfortunate changes when fall comes, I highly recommend you try the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo and Nourishing Daily Conditioner. You can find it at Target.com and Walgreens.com and it’s only $4.99-$5.99! How do you battle a dry scalp and hair during the colder months?
