5 Ways to Fab Fall Hair
Whether you were a sun-worshipper, craved catchin’ waves in the ocean, or were cool by the pool, we hope it has been the best summer ever. We are pretty sure, though, unless you lived under a rock, your hair is a little worse for wear as the season of frolicking comes to a close. The issue: There is a only a couple of months until dry-air or icy temps will have us wanting to hide under a beanie. From frizz to brittle ends, it just isn’t fair, but there is a way to fight back. Here are five ways to not only temperature-proof your locks this season, but ensure your tresses are properly prepped for the transition:
Ouidad Water Works Clarifying Shampoo, starting at $10
While it was great spending loads of time in the pool this summer, your tresses might be experiencing major build-up from things like chlorine and hair products. Start the new season with a clean slate by clarifying your locks. A once-a-month clarifying shampoo will get rid of anything that’s accumulated on your strands.
Do you dust?
We know this sounds like a reference to house cleaning, but it will actually create more house cleaning, at least for your stylist. Give your locks what’s called a “dust trim”, a technique where such a small amount of hair is trimmed that it resembles dust. You’ll get rid of any split ends that reside on the very tips of your locks, promoting healthier hair.
Moisturize Your Mane
The summer months can leave hair dry and brittle. Infuse moisture back into hair and go glam and glossy by routinely using an oil, especially on the ends. It will also prevent your hair from upcoming extreme temperature swings.
Stay Away, Static!
Wigo 100% Boar Bristle brush, 19.99
The key to preventing static (i.e. Does anyone know how to avoid it when pulling a sweater over your head?!) is to make certain your hair is super hydrated (as outlined above in the Moisturize Your Mane section) in conjunction with a serum. Another quick n’ easy trick to eliminate static? Run a dryer sheet through your hair. This sends static-y tresses packin’ every time! And most importantly, be sure to use a brush that promotes static reduction.
The only thing more annoying than windy weather is when it causes our tresses to whip around and get stuck in our freshly applied lip gloss. Ew! But you can easily avoid a fly-away catastrophe by using a serum that will both coat and moisturize locks.
Now, to figure out how to seal and block the weather from our face and fingers!
Happy transitioning, hair mavens!
