Just like you change up your wardrobe each season, you should be changing up your hair care regime. With the end of summer is fast approaching – ugh - brisk, chilly air is about to blow in and freeze your tresses. The drastic change in temperature and precipitation can be quite confusing for your hair especially when it’s still following a summer hair care routine. So, let’s change things up to keep your tresses long, lush, and healthy this season.
Skip the Shampoo and Conditioner Once in a While
It’s no secret that the best way to keep your hair lush is to avoid washing it every day. When you suds up your strands daily, you’re washing away the natural oils your hair needs to fight off the harsh weather conditions that are fast approaching. So, leave the shampooing and conditioning to every two to three days and rely on dry shampoo for all the rest.
And of course, when it is shampoo-and-conditioner day, make sure you’re using quality hair care products that are free of paraben, sulfates, and phthalates.
Use Shampoo and Conditioner Where It Counts
Speaking of shampoo and conditioner, you’d be surprised at how many people don’t wash and condition their hair properly. Yes, we were even culprits once! Shampoo is designed to scrub away dirt, dry skin, and lipids that are on the scalp, and to then, rinse it all away.
However, most of us slather that shampoo on like it’s going out of style but doing so can strip your hair of the healthy oils it needs to thrive.
This fall season, try getting in the habit of using shampoo on your scalp and only massaging it through your hair as you rinse. Then, add a dollop of conditioner to your tresses and let them soak in the good, healthy ingredients.
Avoid Wearing Super Tight Hats
When the fall breeze blows in, the first thing we all do is reach for the comfiest, tightest hat we can find. Sure, hats are essential to keeping you warm and just as great for covering up bad hair days that are oh so prone during the fall and winter seasons.
However, it’s highly recommended to avoid wearing super tight hats that turn your hair into a science center every time you take it off. Static electricity can be just as damaging for your hair as excessive use of heating products can be. So, keep it loose this fall season. Think baggy beanies, wide-brimmed hats, ear muffs, etc.
Apply an Extra Layer of Hydration
The fall season can suck all the sunshine your tresses have soaked up during the summer season. So, it’s crucial to add an extra layer of hydration to your fall hair care regime to keep your hair lush. The Agave Revitalizing Shine Spray is our secret weapon for flawless fall hair.
Tame the Tresses with Smoothing Conditioner
During the summer months, you can get away with effortless waves. Come the fall season, those effortless waves quickly turn into messy hair days. Funny how that works!
To keep your hair care on point this season, use a smoothing conditioner that’ll help tame the fly-aways, frizz and unruly hair during fall.
Treat Yourself to a Leave-In Conditioner
We can’t say it enough – fall can suck the life out of your strands if you don’t treat your tresses to some extra TLC during this season. So, schedule at least one day each week for a deep condition that drenches your dehydrated hair in all the good stuff. We’re talking cacao butter, murumuru butter, capuacu butter, oh my.
