Fall Hair Care Tricks and Treats

Fall hair care is crucial after a long summer of high heat and sun! The environment can really reek havoc on your hair so it's good to have a few tricks up your sleeve! No matter where you live, if you’ve also been in the water (beaches, lakes, swimming pools, or rivers) or direct sunlight, your hair may inadvertently have paid the price!

Having said that, the fall is a great time to do an overall hair assessment. How much care you need to give your hair will depend on your exposure to the summer's environment. Most people love to play outside in the summer, which can show up later in your hair's texture and color. Use the fall hair care tips below to help correct all that fun in the sun!

Fall Hair Care Tricks and Treats

  • Fall is a great time to replenish your hair. Most conditioning masks work about the same way. They help add back lost moisture - which provides flexibility - and added keratin - which super powers your hair's strength! Look for masks that contain built in ingredients that create silkiness like coconut oil.

    You can also make your own treatment at home by simply mixing four ounces of purified water with a few drops of your favorite oil (and/or essential oil) in a misting bottle. Shake well and spray the mixture onto your hair when it feels parched. Pay attention to those ends which need lots of extra conditioning.

    Remember too, that shampoo’s that lather a lot are not necessarily better for your hair. Try shampoo’s that are free of chemicals your hair doesn't need, especially if you color your hair a lot.

  • You may not think about them doing your hair much good, but hair products like hair gels, mousse, thermal protectors, and creams can create a dividing line between your hair and the environment. That's why its a great idea to use them in your fall hair care!

  • Fall is a great time to improve your hair's porosity, especially if you have blonde hair or your hair got bleached at the beach.

  • If you like to do things your own way, it's easy to treat your hair with things you probably already have. You can find some awesome home treatments here.

  • Just as crops are harvested in the fall, it’s also a great time to renew your hair by trimming off the excesses or trying a new hairdo. This helps eliminate splitting before the arid winter season and gives your hair a better foundation to absorb conditioners and moisturizers.

  • An easy way to boost moisture in your fall hair care is to add a few drops of your favorite hair oil right into your favorite products. Or, you can do it this way:

    While showering, work a penny-sized amount of your favorite oil onto your hair after you've applied your conditioner. Massage both of these products into your hair, wait for a few minutes, rinse your hair for a few seconds only, pick through it, then rinse your hair again. As your hair dries, you'll be amazed at how well your hair behaves.

  • A super simple way to tame curls is to condition your hair in the shower and then don’t rinse it out at all. Get out of the shower, wrap your hair in an old cotton shirt, (borrow your boyfriends:o) and leave your conditioner on your hair as you work around the house or watch TV. You can leave it on for as long as you like! Afterward, get back in the shower, rinse, and comb through. Why use an old shirt? Find out here.

  • If your hair color level got lifted out in the sun and you’d like it to be a little darker, try using a semi permanent color just for the fall season. Or, get a reverse color instead of jumping all the way on board with a complete color change. Dimensions give the illusion of having thicker hair.

    Curly Styles - If you have curly hair, part your hair off when you get out of the shower but don’t comb through again. Allow your hair to dry without touching it again. Another way to handle curls is by conditioning for a few hours when and where you can. It'll help you subdue your curls and provide the extra moisture curls crave.

    Straight Styles - Lose the towel after conditioning if you don’t want your hair to poof. Reason? The grooves of a towel can be rough on your strands and can force hair cuticles to pop open. When they’re open, your hair looks frazzled. Instead, allow your hair to dry naturally until its damp, then blow dry it out with a brush to smooth cuticles and strands.

  • One of the best things about fall is that humidity plunges in many places around the world. You can help keep your hair tame by using products that contain silicones. Although they've unfairly gotten a bad rap, they are NOT unhealthy for hair that's already in good shape.

    Getting your hair ready for the dry winter season is an essential part of fall hair care. When you take care of your hair responsibly, day by day, you won't need a bag of tricks to repair it!
