As the leaves change color and the temperature drops, it’s not just your wardrobe that needs an update; your hair care routine should also transition to accommodate the changing seasons. Fall can be harsh on your hair, with cooler and drier weather causing potential damage and frizz. But fear not! With a few simple adjustments to your hair care routine, you can keep your locks looking vibrant and healthy throughout the autumn season.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.
Fall weather often comes with lower humidity levels and drier conditions, especially in Utah. This can lead to dry and brittle hair. You can combat this by maintaining proper hydration both internally and externally. Drink plenty of water to keep your body and hair well-hydrated.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
Healthy hair starts from the inside out. No matter the season, incorporating foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids into your diet is crucial. Foods like salmon, avocado, nuts, and leafy greens can promote hair health and prevent dryness and breakage.
Change-up Your Shampoo and Conditioner
As the weather changes, so should your hair care products. Swap out your lightweight summer products for richer, more nourishing options. Look for shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizing ingredients like Jojoba Esters, Shea Butter, and Argon Oil. Additionally, you can add a deep conditioner treatment to your routine to give your hair an extra boost of hydration.

Get a Trim!
Regular trims are essential year-round, but they become even more beneficial during the fall. Trimming your hair every 6-8 weeks helps remove split ends and prevents them from traveling up the hair shaft, causing more significant damage. It also promotes healthier and more vibrant hair growth.
Combat Static and Frizz with Hair Oil
Hair oil can be a powerful ally in your battle against static and frizz, especially during the fall season. As the air becomes cooler and drier, our hair tends to lose moisture, which can lead to static electricity and those pesky frizzies. Applying a small amount of hair oil can work wonders. These oils act as a natural barrier, sealing in moisture and preventing the hair from absorbing excess humidity from the air. By adding a protective layer, they not only keep your hair hydrated but also reduce friction between individual strands, effectively taming static and leaving your locks looking smooth and sleek, even on the windiest fall days. Just remember, a little goes a long way, so start with a few drops and work it through your hair for a frizz-free, static-resistant finish.

Taking care of your hair during the fall doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With these simple tips and adjustments to your hair care routine, you can ensure your locks remain luscious and vibrant throughout the season. Embrace the cozy and colorful days of autumn with healthy, gorgeous hair.
