I have a love/hate relationship with the long winters that are common here in Colorado. On the one hand, you have fun times in the snow and beautiful scenery. On the other, unpleasant bouts of dry skin and hair. I realize that other states get plenty of snow like we do here in Colorado. Thing is, we also have a dry climate which can seem even drier during the wintertime. This seasonal change can lead to skin that soaks up lotion like a sponge. It can also be a burden to my already thirsty natural hair.
