Autumn ushers in cooler, drier air, brisk winds – and an increased need for blow dryers and flat irons. With the big drop in humidity, and the added friction from hats and scarves, you will be experiencing more static and fly-aways. So along with unpacking your chunky sweaters and boots, you may also want to consider revamping your hair care routine for fall!
1. TRIM THOSE TRESSES
A summer of sun exposure and ponytails can leave your hair damaged and susceptible to breakage. Speak to your stylist about trimming away split ends, or consider a bold new style altogether.
2. ADD MOISTURE
Treat your hair to some much-needed moisture with a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment. In addition to helping your hair stay shiny and healthy, keeping your hair hydrated will help to combat the static and friction from hats and scarves.
If your hair is feeling a little thirsty, ask your stylist for a deep conditioning treatment at your next appointment.
Since your hair will already be prone to breakage during the colder months, using hot tools such as blow dryers and flat irons can result in thirsty, weak, breakage-prone hair. Using a heat protectant (spray, serum, mouse, or cream) while styling your hair will help prevent future damage. Try sealing in moisture with oils and serums for added nourishment.
We recommend the ThermaShape line by Goldwell.
Try shelving your current shampoo and conditioner and opt for products that will provide extra moisture and will nourish your locks, not dry them out or cause oil build-up. This will help keep your strands soft, shiny and free of unwanted breakage throughout the colder season.
Some of our favorites are the Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner from Arrojo and the 7Seconds Shampoo & Conditioner from UNITE.
If you’re really missing those beachy waves and aren’t ready to fully leave summer behind, BeachDay by UNITE is our favorite texturizing spray for full, tousled locks!
