The change in temperature can really confuse your hair, both in color and texture. These changes can be hazardous to your overall hair health. Here are our top tips for getting your hair back in good condition for the colder months, and how to prevent further seasonal damage.
You know the itchy, dry skin that naturally comes with colder weather? The same goes for your hair. Dry hair breaks easily and also make it difficult, if not impossible, to grow hair longer. The transition between summer to fall is when it is vital to add a moisturizing hair mask or change your shampoo or conditioner so your hair can adjust to the change in temperature. Look for extra moisturizing ingredients to secure hydration in your strands. We love the Bumble and Bumble Gentle shampoo and Super Rich conditioner.
Focus on Your Diet
Sunny days are far and few between in the autumn, lessening further into the winter months. This means your Vitamin D levels can take a drastic drop. Vitamin D is essential to healthy hair growth, so invest in a supplement containing it. Eating Vitamin D rich foods, such as salmon and mackerel, can also help.
It’s Time to Cut Your Hair
The combination of indoor central heating and the extreme change in weather conditions from rain, wind and autumn sun can affect the health of your hair, making it more prone to damage and split ends. Light doesn’t reflect well from damaged hair either so it can be dull and lackluster. The solution? Head over to the salon and get a trim. This is the perfect time to get that new autumn look.
Invest in a Hair Mask
As well as switching up your shampoo and conditioner, it’s a good idea to give your mane some love with a regular hair treatment. Soothe and protect your strands with a weekly treatment mask. Hair masks come in all kinds of varieties for different hair needs, so shoot for a weekly treatment to keep your hair in tip top shape. Bumble and Bumble While You Sleep Mask is the perfect overnight treatment for hair damage.
Embrace the Season of Change
Fall is all about change, the leaves change color, the heat turning into crisp air, drinking iced coffee turns into hot coffee. You should bring about change too. Clean out your closet, set up your planner, and most importantly take great care of your hair.
