Summer is here along with warmer weather and if you live in Southern California, no rain and drought conditions. So warm weather can wreck havoc on your skin and hair. Lots of sun exposure is drying to your skin and hair and it’s really important to protect them. So here are a few of my favorite products for hair and skin that will keep you looking your best through the hottest months.
