The season is changing from summer to fall, which means it’s time to change up your hair care routine! Unfortunately, when the outdoor temperature fluctuates, it can wreck havoc on your locks. Incorporate the below fall hair care tips, pulled together by the top stylists at your local Aveda Hair Salon in Irvine, into your daily routine and learn how to keep your hair happy and healthy all autumn long!
Moisture is Key
We’ve all experienced the dry, itchy skin that naturally comes when the weather gets colder, but did you know that changes in temperature can dry out your scalp too? To help maintain much needed moisture, we recommend adding a hair mask to your routine or switching up your shampoo and conditioner with extra moisturizing ingredients like jojoba oil and buriti to help keep your strands hydrated.
Keep it Natural
It probably isn’t surprising that the products you put on your hair can have a direct effect on hair health as the air drys out. When you keep your products all natural, you avoid stripping your hair of critical natural oils. Skip the hair care products that include synthetic and alcohol based ingredients.
Dark and Stormy
Sure, summer is synonymous with sun-kissed hair, but what about fall? As the days get shorter, so does the amount of time you’re able to spend in the sunlight which can leave highlights looking dull and faded. Beat nature to the punch by going a a few shades darker this fall to avoid uneven coloring.
Turn Up the Volume
Humidity levels tend to drop during autumn, which means you can’t count on moisture in the air to help volumize your hair! Avoid a limp hairstyle by adding a volumizing spray to your routine to give your roots a much needed boost.
Clarify, Clarify, Clarify
Summer months can leave a lot of build-up on your roots and ultimately make your roots limp and lackluster. Give your hair a clean slate this fall by detoxing with a clarifying shampoo once every two weeks. Keep in mind that clarifying shampoo can strip hair dyes from strands, so only use if you decide to not dye your hair this fall!
Try Something New
We like to treat each new season as a fresh slate, a philosophy that we love to apply to hair styles as well!
