Bundle up ladies, it is getting pretty cold out there! Winter is basically around the corner and now is the time to start preparing for it. It is no secret that the winter season requires a change in our daily routines. With natural elements such as snow, freezing rain, and cold winds in the mix, we endure a lot of damage during the winter. This is especially true in the beauty department, and I'm not just talking about skin.
Our hair really gets the short end of the stick in the winter. That is why it is vital that we prepare for the weather and take precautions to prevent severe damage to our hair. Cold air and indoor heat will cause hair to become dry and brittle and eventually split and break off. Without proper care, you can turn into a dry frizzy mess.
Do not let winter dehydrate and damage your hair. Here is the Ultimate Guide for Winter Hair Care for all hair types.

We cannot deny how popular Instagram is, and that it owes its popularity mostly to filters, because they are what differentiate this social platform from others. Even though studies show that normal (#nofilter) is the most popular option, using filters is by far more effective. This wide appeal of Instagram portraits with filters perhaps led to increasing demands for cosmetic procedures that will look similar as the perfectly edited selfies. That is why it is no wonder today that patients walk into the doctor’s office with filtered picture of themselves and say “I want to look like this”. Can it be done, though? Can a plastic surgery mimic the look of a filtered selfie?
