The weather, your diet, pollution and lifestyle all have an impact on your hair. So many of us pay too little attention to the health and condition of our hair until it’s too late when it no longer looks glossy, is dry and becomes frizzy or is breaking

Here’s how to keep your hair your crowning glory.
