Last week, we talked about transitioning your beauty routine from summer to fall, but today we are going to focus on preparing your hair for fall. I had actually had the same cut and color for two years because I loved it so much. For fall this year, I decided to switch things up a little bit. I have the same cut, the inverted bob, because it's so easy and works well with my hair. I used to get brown all over with blonde and red highlights. I went a little lighter with the blonde highlights for fall for more contrast and got rid of the red and replaced it with purple! I've always wanted purple hair, so I got the under part of the back of my hair purple, a peek a book highlight. I love, love, love it! Keep reading for some tips to transition your hair care from summer to fall.
Now is also a great time to do a deep conditioning treatment. Most salons offer them, or you can make your own mask to use at home. My favorite DIY hair mask recipe is my argan oil recipe. I use it once a week to keep my hair looking great. If I need a little extra moisture, I'll put it on and wrap my hair in plastic wrap and let it sit for 45 minutes before I wash my hair.
Don't Forget Your Scalp
Many people complain of dandruff in the fall and winter, but it might not be dandruff. Dry skin can cause flakes that can be mistaken for dandruff. Just like your skin gets dry and flakes in the fall, so does the skin on your scalp. Actually, the changing season can even cause your hair to shed! Keeping your scalp moisturized will help prevent flakes if they are caused by dry skin. This is why I use CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ to keep my scalp nourished, which keeps my hair healthier.
My scalp doesn't start to get really dry and flake until we start heating our home, but I use CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ before then to give my scalp a boost of moisture. Seriously, there's nothing worse than having little flakes in your perfect hair!
If you color your hair, consider going a little darker for fall. Light blonde can go to a slightly darker blonde or think low lights to frame your face. If you're a brunette, consider going all red or adding red highlights.
Schedule a Trim
Whether you're in need of a new do or growing your hair out, it's a good idea to get your hair cut in the fall. The sun can cause damage to your hair, and so can chlorine from the pool. Getting a trim will remove the dead ends, which makes your hair look healthier.
And here's the best part--the purple in the back!
