The seasonal dip in temperature can lead to a closed cuticle, but the changes to not end there! To work the weather just right and get your healthiest fall mane, consider changing up your daily hair care routine with the tips and tricks below!
Give Your Ponytail A Rest!
This cute and quick style is perfect for hot summer days, but it causes breakage and scalp stress. it is even worse as the weather gets colder, and your hair gets dryer. Instead, wear your hair mostly down or softly pinned up. Even if you wear a ponytail a few times a week, never wear it to bed.
It is vital to add a masque or gloss treatment, which will condition ends and give your hair lots of healthy shine. When using a masque, try soaking strands in warm water to help open the hair cuticle before applying it. Let it penetrate while wearing a protective shower cap. Also, shelf your current shampoo and conditioner and opt for hydrating versions that contain natural oils, like jojoba or argan oil, to quench your hair’s daily thirst.
Try A Clarifying Shampoo!
