|Plenty of women out there toss their hair up in a bun only on two occasions: a formal affair, or a few hours at the gym. But in the wintertime, wrapped up strands are a perfect way to preserve your hair’s health until it’s time to let it hang long and loose again in the summer. And here’s why:
Buns protect the oldest and most fragile part of the hair fiber—the ends—from exposure to dryness and friction which could lead to breakage and shorter length overtime.
Buns, when styled with nourishing aids like glō•essentials Infinite Shine Smoothing Oil, lock in moisture all day long for a boost of hydration
Buns prevent mechanical damage from brushing, and heat damage from irons, because they don’t require either.
