As cooler weather begins to creep in, it is necessary to modify your haircare routine in order to accommodate for the drier conditions. You can add and subtract, reduce or increase your use of specific products and ingredients in order to find your perfect formula for beautiful curls.

While it has a reputation for smoothing and de-frizzing, glycerin can actually be detrimental to hair in colder weather.
