Threadmill Giveaway

Winter Is Coming: Are You Ready?

Like many of you,  my hair care routine must be adjusted to accommodate low dew points and 30 degree weather.  Gone are the days of the carefree wash and go’s and glycerin heavy products. Chicago winters can be so drying to the hair and skin, but I love this time of year!  It’s time to rock cute hats, twist outs and up dos.  It’s time for sweet-smelling, hair-protecting hair butters.  What hair care changes are you making, in preparation for frigid temperatures? One (1) luck winner will receive a Slouchy Beanie, similar to the one shown above.  A special thanks to Dotty @ Threadmill for donating the super cute hat! Use the form below, to enter the giveaway.  Follow the instructions, and check your email! Giveaway ends Friday, 11/30/12 @ midnight (EST). Winner will be announced on Saturday, 12/1/12.
