Fall is in the hair - and with every new season comes new hair care concerns. As tightly as I've been holding onto summer, it's officially time to at least start talking about autumn.
The house is decorated, the outside is donned with mums & pumpkins, & I've spent a small fortune on new fall clothes. Now it's time to focus on the hair...
For starters, you need to get the remnants of summer out of it, if you haven't already. Try a clarifying treatment - this will help get all the leftover chlorine, sunscreen, salt water & any other signs of summer out of your hair. If you're not in the mood to come in & get a treatment here is my favorite shampoo that'll do the trick at home.
As always... you should start every season with a good trim. This will rid your mane of those fried ends, leaving your hair looking healthier, while simultaneously promoting new growth. .
You are also going to want to keep your hair hydrated this season to prevent frizziness and flyaways as the air gets dryer. Unfortunately, the days of air-drying your hair in the summer sun are over. As a result more people are inclined to use hot tools and style their hair in the cooler months so make sure you're using a good thermal protector to prevent damaging your hair with the extra styling.
Now that we've discussed a few ways to repair that summer damage, let's chat about how you could update your look for fall. This is always a popular time to lay off the bleach and darken things up by coloring your hair a deeper shade. To all my die-hard blondes out there, don't worry. You don't have to completely hop ship to mix things up - adding some dimension with lowlights is always a great, subtle option. After all "bronde" (brown/blonde) is one of the big hair colors of the last few years!
So what do y'all think? Are you ready to step into autumn with strong, healthy (possibly darker) locks?! Let me know!
