Transform Your Hair this Fall with Our Top 5 Tips

Protecting your hair throughout the summer season is no joke. Between the sun, hot winds, and chlorinated swimming pools, you’ve likely adjusted your routine to ensure your hair can withstand all this damage.

However, now that summer is coming to an end and fall is beginning, it’s time to care for your hair according to this season.


1. Focus on Your Scalp
You want to have a healthy hair then starts with having a thorough scalp-scale routine. you’re more likely to have dandruff due to lower temperatures, dry air and it might worsening your scalp conditions.

Make sure that you focus on your scalp during your hair routine and try to remove buildup and debris. You can do this with a clarifying shampoo once a week (or once every two weeks) with co-washes in between. This allows you to clear any clogged follicles, which will inhibit hair growth.

It's advisable you add this to your hair care routine:

2. Deep Condition
A great deep conditioner is a key part of any hair regime, and this is especially true in the fall.

I recommend a deep conditioning treatment with natural ingredients. It helps strip your hair of moisture like synthetic or alcohol-based products do.

We recommend you get:
Nourishing Omez Leave-in Conditioner

3. Moisturize
Regardless of the season, moisturizing your hair is the most important part of any hair care routine. Thick, curly, natural hair tends to be prone to dryness compared to looser and straighter textures. This is due to the shape of the strands as well as the natural sebum produced by the scalp, which has a harder time traveling down the hair shaft. When you moisturize your hair, pay special attention to the ends. This is the oldest part of your hair, and as a result, the driest.

We recommend using the LOC (leave-in, oil, cream) method of moisturizing. This is popular among curly girls; although, the order you use them in ultimately depends on the person and their specific hair texture and needs.

During the fall months, you may begin to notice that your hair is even drier than usual. Elsa may be famous for saying, “The cold never bothered me anyway!” but that frankly isn’t true for curly hair. Switch out your favorite summer products for something a bit heavier to protect you against the cold weather.

Here are some of our favorite products for you to try.

• Nourishing Omez Leave-in Conditioner
• Elevate
• Coconut Oil

4. Go Darker
This is for all the women who love to color their hair! As summer turns into fall, you’ll often see a rush to the salon. Gone are the days for sun-kissed hair that you get when you’re exposed to the sun. If you love color-treating your hair, then head to the salon to revitalize your hair. Going a shade or two darker can help you even out the color and find deeper, richer hues that complement your cute fall wardrobe.

5. Eliminate Split Ends
Did you know that experts recommend that you trim your hair every three months? This ultimately allows you to keep your hair healthy while reducing breakage. When left untouched, your split end will continue to split all the way up your entire hair shaft. And when this occurs, your hair is left beyond repair. Don’t let this happen! Even if you’re trying to retain the length, you need periodic cuts to keep your hair long and gorgeous.

6. Cover Your Hair
If you’re extra worried about your hair drying out from the elements, don’t hesitate to shield it directly from harsh weather conditions. You can do this with a cute scarf, hat, or head wrap. We recommend looking for satin-lined options as cotton or wool can draw moisture out of your hair.

7. Steam Your Hair
Did you know that lack of moisture in the winter has a damaging effect on your strands? Steaming can help to combat this as it allows you to open the hair cuticle and add moisture in a single step. Now, we know purchasing a steamer may get expensive, but you can simulate the effect of a steamer by wearing a shower cap and then wrapping a towel on top.


In Conclusion

While you may have a general hair care routine, it’s always a good idea to adapt it to the season you’re in. Your summer hair care routine should focus on sun damage and heat while your fall and winter routine should focus on how to prevent your hair from drying out. In both these cases, moisture is crucial for natural hair and protective styling methods are a great way to prevent your hair from breaking. Bonus: You’ll also find that you can preserve the length.

Does your product work on hair that is blow-dried? And sometimes flat ironed?
