How Often Should You Wash Your Hair During Winter?

 *Canva.comCleansing our natural hair is one of the most important regimens we do for our tresses. For obvious reasons we need to cleanse our hair to remove pollutants, dirt, product build-up and in some instances smoke and odors.  It’s a part of good hygiene but ask any natural and she will tell you it’s the best way to maintain healthy, happy hair.
