Fall Hair Products
Fall is the best time to repair damage caused by the heat and humidity of summer and prepare your hair for the cool, dry months ahead. Here are some fall hair tips and products for keeping your hair moisturized and frizz-free all autumn long.
1. Repair Your Hair
After the summer season of heat and humidity, it's time to get your curls ready for fall. Trim off those damaged ends and spend some time deep conditioning. Even if deep conditioning treatments are already part of your hair care routine, try a new deep conditioner you've been curious about or add another day of treatment to your calendar. Your curls need to be restored and ready for the drier autumn air.
2. Use Heavy Moisturizers
Once the cool weather does finally arrive, you should have your cold weather hair care routine ready. The key is to plan ahead. In the fall, you will need to use products that add more moisture to your hair to combat the upcoming extreme cold temperatures outside and the dry indoor heating. Rich creams, puddings, custards and leave-in conditioners with lots of humectants, and butters that offer plenty of moisture will be your best choice.
3. Fight Fall Frizz
Cooler winds and drier air disrupt the hair cuticle causing frizz and static. Satin pillowcases will help keep your hair's cuticles smooth and protected from further damage. Hair towels are also helpful in reducing frizz and protecting your curl pattern from disruption. The texture of a typical bath towel can roughen up your hair cuticle, but the smooth surface of microfiber towels cause less stress on the hair cuticle, resulting in less damage and frizz. They are also very absorbent, reducing the time that your curls and coils need to spend under the heat of hair dryers.
