How to Adjust Your Haircare Routine for Fall

Just as you change your wardrobe for each season, give your hair the same love! As we leave the warm and sunny summer behind us and enter fall, it's the perfect time to heal your tresses from all the sea salt, pool chlorine, heat, and UV rays that can leave hair weak and brittle. 

It's also important to prepare your locks for upcoming environmental changes. As temperatures drop, dryness sets in. You might see changes in hair volume, shine, texture, or thickness. Try these healing, nourishing hair care tips to ensure that the good hair days outweigh the bad.

4 Tips for Fabulous Fall Hair

We're all about taking care of yourself. Feel your best self with these fabulous fall hair tips.

1. Trim your hair seasonally

Split ends are a sign of damaged and unhealthy hair. Professional stylists recommend trimming your hair every 8-12 weeks to keep your ends healthy, whole, and strong. You can also use your salon visit as an opportunity to revamp your look with a trendy new style. 

2. Add a dash of moisture

If you didn't take preventative measures for dryness, then you may have dehydrated locks by the end of the sunny season. Fall and winter climates can also lead to dry scalp, eczema, dandruff, and generally poor hair conditions. Use the fall as an opportunity to replenish some moisture in your roots and scalp. You can use hair masks or switch to products with moisturizing ingredients like jojoba, coconut oil, avocado oil, or shea butter.

3. Boost hair growth

During summer, your hair thickens to protect the scalp. But in winter, those hairs shed (the horror!). Stress and other health factors can also intensify hair loss. To prevent or slow hair loss during colder seasons, try some massaging serums that can encourage hair development. You can also add some hair growth supplements to your mornings. Selenium, B3, B6, and zinc may support healthy hair growth when you need it most. 

4. Rapunzel, let down your hair!

Whether you've been sporting a messy mom bun (perfect for the beach) for most of the summer or find yourself casually throwing your hair into a ponytail while you work from home, these convenient styles can stress your scalp and break your hair. As the cooler temperatures arrive, try wearing your hair loose most days or in a relaxed braid that doesn't cause tension to your roots. 

There is a lot to love about fall — pumpkin-spiced foods, vibrant colors on trees, and fresh, crisp air. Let your hair be another reason you love this colorful season by adding these fall hair care hacks to your daily habits.
