Fall Hair Care Routine

Publicado por Stephanie White en

Every season calls for a new routine even with your hair care. In summer though moisture is necessary it is not as critical as in the fall where you are more exposed to hair becoming dry and brittle as a result of temperatures becoming lower.

Higher humidity levels as with summer naturally causes scalp and hair to be oilier if over moisturized. However, in the fall and winter months an increase in moisture is needed to keep the hair healthy.

So, lather on that added moisture for the fall with these other tips to ensure your hair care routine is at its best.

Tip 1: Use a Thermal Protector. 

There is a visible trend that colder months tend to attract hairstyles that include more hot hair tools. This is so because this heat applied hairstyles tend to last longer where there is less humidity.

However, these styles attract more damage like breakage, dryness, brittleness, and split ends.

Applying heat regularly to hair leads to damage because of the thermal heat. So, the use of a wet or dry thermal hair protectant bridges the gap and provides the necessary protection to keep hair from becoming damaged.

There’s no need to put away the flat iron, blow dryer, or curling irons but just ensure to keep your thermal protectants nearby and use them before applying heat.

Tip 2: Hair Masks

Earlier, the mention of increasing the moisture applied to hair during the fall season was discussed. Other than everyday moisture application through products and sealing oils, it is essential that hair masks are a part of your hair care routine in the fall season.

The fall season exposes hair to more instances of dry and itchy scalp, frizz, limp, and brittle hair. Though indoor heaters might adjust the temperature, the unnatural origin of it causes hair to respond negatively as hair is still losing moisture.

Heaters can even cause scalp conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis to flair up and become quite problematic.

Caring for hair in the fall with less humidity and increased used of heater systems demands that your hydrating attempts are carefully considered and executed. Therefore, using the hair mask weekly in the fall months can help to keep your hair from becoming limp and dry. It will provide your hair with the perfect moisture balance to encourage growth within these drier months.

Tip 3: Make Leave-in Treatments a Staple

Leave-in Treatments help to provide hair with added moisture that keeps hair stronger and more moisturized until the next wash day. A leave-in treatment applied at minimum once per week protects the hair from breakage seeing that the bonds that keep hair together are weakened within the dryer and colder weathers.

With the use of a leave-in treatment you help to the humidity level within your hair strands which help to preserve and protect them naturally as it would in warmer months.


Tip 4: Don’t Wash Hair Less

The truth is hair scalp is more prone to becoming dry in the fall and winter months. There is the idea that washing hair more may cause scalp to become extremely dry. Even in the event that dandruff and dry scalp flakes are more obvious it doesn’t mean that washing hair will make it worst.

A critical part of scalp care is washing your hair at least once a week. When this is not practiced that is when scalp conditions can develop, or even present dandruff or dry scalp flakes can become worst.

Where it is you are concerned about scalp becoming dry be sure to use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners to safe guard your scalp as you wash once per week and even assist with dry scalp issues where present.  

Tip 5: Incorporate Clarifying Shampoos

A clarifying shampoo during the fall will become a key aspect of your hair care routine. As your moisturizing attempts increase your hair strands and scalp are more exposed to buildup.

Buildup affects the ability of hair to soak in moisture and even has the potential to cause bacteria to multiple faster which in totality impacts the health of your hair and scalp.

The use of a clarifying shampoo at least once every week or once every two weeks based on the state of your hair will prevent or remove any buildup on hair strands. It also helps to remove and prevent follicles from becoming blocked with dirt, bacteria, or product. By preventing follicles from being blocked hair is more likely to grow and have less appearance of thinning.

Tip 6: Scalp Detox

A deep cleansing of the scalp during the fall months prove to boost the health of your overall hair and scalp. Hair and scalp become healthier when natural scalp scrubs and clays are used to detox the scalp as it helps to minimize itching, irritations, flakes, dandruff, and dryness.

When natural scalp detoxes are used it promotes mild removal of dead skin and balances the scalp environment.

Tip 7: Prioritize the Use of Natural Products

When selecting your fall hair care routine products, it is essential that you keep it all natural to the best of your ability. All-natural products will promote hair health free from chemical ingredients and alcohol-based ingredients that are known to strip hair of its natural oils thus leading to dryness and an ultimately breakage interfering with the ability for your hair to retain length and health.

Natural ingredients place a better emphasis on providing the added hydration your hair will need to thrive in the fall months.


Final Thoughts

Boosting the exposure of your hair to added moisture in the fall months are critical to ensure that your hair will not only merely survive but actually be healthy with the sign of growth.

Make it your duty to upgrade all your hair shampoos, conditioner, hair masks, moisturizers, leave-in treatments, and cleansing efforts for the fall. By doing this you will spend less time focusing on damage control and more time watching your hair flourish.
