BEAUTY WITH NICOLE--COMBATING WINTER HAIR

Winter wreaks havoc on our hair. The low humidity, coupled with the need to wear hats, creates a lot of static-electricity, making most of us look like something out of a horror movie. To combat this, you need to hydrate your hair more to lock in moisture. This mask will not only do that, it will also reduce buildup to improve your hair’s shine.

Anti-static Hair Mask

Ingredients:
1/2 banana, mashed
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey

Blend the vinegar and honey into the mashed banana. Wash your hair (don’t use conditioner afterwards) and towel until damp. Coat hair with mask and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse. Apply conditioner and rinse again.

Thanks for the tip! For the past few weeks, I've been having a terrible case of "hat head" -- I take off my hate and my hair is all flat.

Oops -- I mean I take off my "hat" not my "hate" -- My subconscious must "hate" my hat.
