  2. Stress And Your Hair

    Wow.  What a difference a month makes.  In the beginning of March, I was peacefully looking forward to the changes we see every Spring, with the longer days, higher temperatures, and the return of color in the flowers and trees.  All those changes will still happen, but I fear we are not going to be able to appreciate them as we have in the past, with all the worry and stress of Coronovirus.  …Read More
