You may or may not love fall. Transitioning from summer to the season that precedes winter can be annoying for some people and a mere disturbance for others. Everything is changing. The leaves are becoming brown and orange, and the warm heat of the summer is transforming into dry air. You've waved goodbye to your summer essentials and started embracing warmer clothes.
Here's something else you should pay attention to; your hair. No matter your hair type, you would notice a difference when styling as the season changes. The hot summer sun might have damaged your hair and drained up all the moisture. Well, here's to new beginnings and getting your hair back to shape! This guide helps you decide what to do with your hair in the fall. No matter your hair type, there's something here for you.
We cannot emphasize this enough. Make sure to find a shampoo that will not strip away all the moisture from your hair. Remember, you're trying to help your hair recover from all the heat of summer. But, you’re also trying to ensure that fall’s dryness does not leave you with frizzy hair.
You can also use a Scalp Massage Shampoo Brush to gently wash and massage your hair while you’re in the shower. All you need to do is fill it in with your carefully chosen shampoo and massage it through your hair.
It's time to break out the deep conditioner and all your favorite oil treatments. Deep conditioning is essential to ensure that your scalp and hair follicles are healthy. First, of course, you would need to find suitable oils that would moisturize your hair and add nutrients to it.
If you're doing a DIY, the Felicia Leatherwood Flaxseed Bonnet is precisely what you need to make your deep conditioning effective. Pop the bonnet in the microwave for about two minutes, then wear it over your deep conditioned hair for about 15 to 20 mins. Your hair will thank you!
If you've been considering cutting your hair shorter, fall is the perfect time to do so. You can also just visit the salon to trim off any damage the summer heat did to your hair. For example, you could trim out the damaged ends if you have naturally curly/coily hair that you don't keep in protective styles. FA trim is also not a bad idea for long, short, or medium type 1 and 2 hair. You can wear your hair in a bob if it's short or a layered cut if it's longer.
Your hair can also get dry, brittle, and damaged in fall. To protect your hair from that, you can do the following:
Wear a good old hat. While summer hats fade away with the summer sun, you can still wear a few hats in fall. This works especially on the days you have not put too much effort into protecting your hair from dryness. Then, you could just slap on a hat, and you'd be good to go!
Fall does not have to be hard on your hair. If you take the necessary measures — protecting your hair from dryness, deep conditioning, and using the right products, you should get through the season with beautiful and healthy hair. We're rooting for you and your hair. Have a great fall!
