Fall Hair Care Tips

The change in the weather can definitely be confusing for your hair. There are some changes to your hair care routine that can help keeps those lovely locks healthy and shiny.

 

Boost the Moisture

The same itchy, dry skin that irritates you during winter also irritates your hair. The cold air can cause dry, itchy scalp as well. So when the air starts to turn cooler it’s time to add a weekly hair mask to your routine like our Color Safe Keratin Infused Hair Mask or switch up your shampoo and conditioner to ones that are more moisturizing. It will help moisturize and energize your scalp to relieve discomfort, while also helping to reduce buildup so that your scalp can stay clean and healthy.

 

Fight Frizz

Even though the humidity is gone it doesn’t mean that you are done dealing with frizz. The static frizz caused by the heat and friction from our hats and scarves can be just as problematic. To combat the frizz and help keep fly-a-ways in place try using a serum like our Revitalizing Moroccan Hair Serum or our Infinity Drops to help protect and enhance your hairs natural luster. They work by coating the surface of the hair, helping to lock in moisture and shine while also blocking out things like dryness and friction.

 

Pump Up The Volume

It’s easy to pump up the volume when the air is full of humidity, but as the weather gets colder it may cause your hair to go flat. Try using a volumizing spray or a volumizing blow dryer like our Volumizer Pro or Air Styler to help give hair a much-needed boost.

 

Massage Your Scalp

Get your boar bristle brush/ essential oil mixture of choice/scalp massager ready and be sure to use it at least once every 2-3 days. A relaxing 10 to 15 minute massage will increase the blood circulation in your scalp, speeding up new growth and will give you healthier hair and scalp in the long run.

 

Time for a Trim & Maybe a Color Change

The combination of indoor central heating and the extreme change in weather conditions from rain, wind and autumn sun can affect the health of your hair, making it more prone to damage and split ends. Light doesn’t reflect well from damaged hair either so it can be dull and lackluster. The solution? Pop into your favorite salon and go get a trim. You’ll soon have the new shiny autumn hair of your dreams.

 

You may also want to consider going darker with your color. Summer is synonymous with sun-kissed hair, with highlights a staple for pretty much all shades. But as your time spent outside shortens as the weather gets colder, those highlights will fade. We recommend beating nature to the punch by going a shade or two darker for fall. Coloring it darker allows this transition to happen easier and evens out the color.

 

Give the Pony Tails a Rest

It’s a cute style for those warm summer days, but during the colder weather can cause breakage and unnecessary scalp stress. Instead wear your hair down or softly pinned up.

 

Now that you have noted down these hair care routine little tips and tricks, you are ready to welcome the new season along with a pumpkin spice latte and stunningly good hair! Did we miss any tips that have worked for you? Feel free to share them in the comments section below.

Healthy Hair Rules

In today’s age of intense dye jobs, pin straight blowouts and bouncy curls, it’s no longer a question of “is my hair is damaged”, but “how bad is it?”. Now, before you throw in the towel or start feeling hopeless because you’d rather give up carbs than your flat iron, there is hope. With hair care products amping themselves up with natural ingredients to help repair the damage there are some tricks you can use to keep your hair healthy and happy.

 

GET IT WET LESS

Water makes hair swell from the inside, which forces the cuticle up. When that happens over and over again, you get frizz and breakage. Don’t wash your hair more than you have to. Whenever you can skip a day, that’s great. Instead, embrace a dry shampoo that’s a hard-core oil and odor absorber.

 

GET SMARTER ABOUT YOUR HAIR CARE PRODUCTS

Our Keratin, Biotin & Argan Oil infused shampoo & conditioner are rich in vitamins A & C, natural oils and botanicals like Aloe, Jojoba Seed Oil, Olive Oil and Macadamia Seed Oil. These gentle formulas not only help hydrate the scalp, but also help to clean hair follicles so your hair can grow fuller and longer. They make great treatments for dry and brittle hair and will leave your locks smooth and shiny. Forget split ends and dead hair forever.

 

CHANGE THE WAY YOU CONDITION

We all know they smooth frizz and make your hair softer and shinier. But if you own a blow-dryer or flatiron, you should also know that conditioners are critical to heat protection. It’s just as important as heat-protectant spray, if not more, because conditioner is better at coating the hair. Like our Truffle Leave-In Conditioner; infused with truffles, biotin and other natural ingredients, it absorbs deep into the roots, hair follicles and scalp to help nourish, moisturize and strengthen from the inside out. This allows for more residual conditioner to be left on the hair.

 

ADD LAYERS

Since heat is the worst thing for your hair, double down with a heat-protectant spray. But recognize that if it’s going to work, you’ve got to apply it the right way: Grab small sections of damp hair and mist each one up and down the length (two or three spritzes per section). When you’re finished, comb your hair to distribute the formula—heat protectants are pretty useless if they’re not applied all over, getting there takes only a few seconds. Look for one that protects hair up to 450 degrees (it’ll say so on the label).

 

COTTON IS BEST

Your cotton Madonna Virgin Tour tee is gentler on your hair than a towel for drying. Its why top hairstylists keep them on hand. They don’t rough up the cuticle as much, so you don’t have to work as hard to smooth the hair and make it look healthy.

 

COOL OFF

If your hair feels hot after you blow-dry or flatiron it, that means it’s still frying. Hit the cold-shot button on your dryer to not only cool it off, but also to set the style.

 

GET CREATIVE

If you air-dry your hair overnight, you can minimize damage and free up time for snoozing, coffee, yoga or whatever in the morning. One trick that works for all hair types: Sleep with damp hair in two loose braids. It smooths frizz, loosens curls, and gives straight hair beachy waves.

 

TREAT YOURSELF

Weekly scalp treatments, like our Keratin Color Safe Revitalizing Hair Mask, make a bigger difference in the long run than you’d think. Keeping the hair follicles clean prevents the blockage and inflammation that leads to thinning hair later in life.

 

SHINE BOOST

Both our Revitalizing Moroccan Hair Serum and Infinity Drops are infused with Keratin, Biotin, Argan Oil and have been designed with no preservatives to help dry, lifeless hair come back to life! The unique blend of natural oils and botanical extracts, like Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil and Macadamia Seed Oil, help to hydrate and seal the cuticle, providing optimal nourishment, hydration, and silky softness to help tame frizz.

They slide effortlessly through hair and work wonders for all hair types, from fine to coarse. Everyone can enjoy smooth locks with a just a few drops of these miraculous serums.
