As we move into Autumn, the weather can wreak havoc with our manes. From frizz to heat protection, this 5-step guide of haircare staples will safeguard your tresses this Autumn.
1. Detox with a clarifying shampoo
The colder mornings can lead to us wanting to steal some extra minutes in bed and forgoing washing our hair. The build-up of dry shampoo and styling products to make our bed-head manes look semi-decent on non-shampoo days can take its toll. From breakage to dandruff or oily roots, product build-up can create an unhealthy scalp environment and make your style not behave as it should. A weekly hair detox to thoroughly cleanse the roots and ends will give your hair a new lease of life and leave it with airy volume, softness, and shine. Strengthening, purifying shampoos like the Olaplex No.4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo and Joico K-Pak Clarifying Shampoo help build strong bonds to prevent breakage, whilst thoroughly cleansing the hair without stripping it of its natural goodness.
2. Moisturising shampoo and conditioner
The crisp cold weather will suck out any moisture within the hair which can make it feel uber dry. If you don’t use a hydrating shampoo and moisturising conditioner already, it might be time to switch up your routine during the colder months to help lock in the hair’s natural hydration. Vegan favourites, Davines MOMO Set and Maria Nila True Soft Duo use natural ingredients formulated to intensify moisture so your locks are touchably soft to combat the interchangeable weather.
3. Deep Conditioning Treatments
As the heating gets turned back on, hair can become dehydrated so treating your locks to a bit TLC will keep them feeling soft and healthy looking. A hair masque like Milk_Shake Integrity Nourishing Muru Muru Butter and 72 Hair Intense Replenishing Mask contain a blend of deep conditioning ingredients that will leave the hair super soft, incredibly nourished and super shiny.
4. Frizz-proof your locks
Unpredictable weather can send tresses into a frizzy-fenzy. Lock in your style and keep frizz at bay with the Joico Humidity Blocker Plus Protective Finishing Spray – depositing a 24-hour shine shield it stops your hair from looking a frizzy-mess before you’ve even walked out the door. For those who want something longer lasting, TikTok trending Color Wow Dreamcoat Supernatural Spray is a silicone free spray that simultaneously combats frizz, controls moisture levels and smooths each fiber. This wonder humidity-proofing treatment protects hair from frizz for three-four shampoos without weighing down your hair.
5. Damage Prevention
If you are someone who needs to tame your mane in the colder months with heated styling tools, using a good heat protectant will prevent your hair from damage and becoming dry. Vegan loyalists will love the Aveda Brilliant Damage Control Heat Protection, a pre-styling spray to protect your hair from the hazards of combing, heat styling, and sun damage. For those who want something that feels more nourishing, The Kérastase Elixir Ultime L'Original Oil has a multitude of uses; primer, finisher, refresher and heat protector it does it all.
