Fall brings on many wonderful changes - colorful foliage, cooler air and relief from the humidity to list just a few – but it’s also accompanied by dry, colder weather, which is more trick than treat for your hair. Much like your wardrobe, your hair needs to adjust seasonally too. So when the trees transition from summer to fall, so should your hair styling products and even your hairstyle. For fall hair care consider lighter smoothing products for coarser hair, such as Moroccanoil’s Smoothing Lotion. This blow-dry hair lotion includes argan oil, argan butter, Vitamin E, and the essential fatty acids for medium hold and soft, manageable hair. Finer hair requires more volume, so try something like Root Boost, also from trUe’s Moroccanoil product line. It makes roots stronger, giving hair texture, body and movement, and best of all it helps control static, vitally important for fall hair care. To work with the dry fall season you’ll want styling products containing natural ingredients (to avoid striping hair of oils, which synthetics and alcohol can do) and ones that hydrate too, such as jojoba oil, argan oil and coconut oil. Check out trUe’s products like Tricology’s Unific Energy Moisturizer conditioner, KeraWhip, Keratin Complex’s Hydrating Cream Conditioner and Aveda’s Dry Remedy moisturizing conditioner. Now’s a great time to change up your hairstyle and color too. Remember these tips before you visit the salon:
- Lighter shades will fade the more time you spend indoors so going a shade, or two, darker helps even out the fading of your summer color. Without those harsh sunrays your hair’s deeper, richer color will stick around longer too.
- A quick trim will remove dry, split ends and add a little bounce.
- Keep your hair down to prevent breakage.
- Use a ceramic brush when styling. It helps maintain texture and volume as you shape your hair.
Love to bring out those fall hats, but not thrilled about hat hair? Carry a small volumizing spray so you refresh your hair just after taking off that hat. With all of that out of the way, you’re ready to tackle your fall wardrobe, which might keep you busy until the first snowfall!
