As the summer sun sets, and we welcome the cool embrace of autumn, our hair often reveals the secrets of the season it endured. The sun's scorching rays, salty beach days, chlorine pool adventures, and the sizzling temperatures can all take a toll on our locks. But don't worry; the arrival of fall is the perfect time for some professional hair rejuvenation. It's time to say farewell to summer's hair damage and say hello to a new season with healthier, more vibrant tresses.
How Summer Hair Damage Happens
Before we discuss the solutions to revive your hair, it's crucial that you understand the kind of damage that summer has done to your tresses. Some may surprise you.
Sun Exposure- Those long hours under the sun can lead to dry, discolored, and brittle hair. Prolonged sun exposure makes your hair more susceptible to damage.
Chlorine and Saltwater- If you've been frolicking by the pool or beach, your hair may have had its fair share of encounters with chlorine and saltwater. These elements can strip away natural oils, leaving your hair parched and prone to tangles.
Humidity- High humidity levels are notorious for causing frizz, especially for those with curly or wavy hair. Frizz can be quite the challenge to tame, making your hair appear unruly.
Heat Styling- Summer might demand a battle with styling tools to keep your hair in check. However, excessive heat styling can damage the hair's cuticle, resulting in breakage and split ends.
Sweat: As the temperature soars, so does the perspiration. Sweat buildup can become a breeding ground for bacteria, possibly leading to an itchy, flaky scalp.
After enduring this hair-raising journey through the summer, it's no surprise your tresses might need a little TLC to regain their former luster and shine.
Time For A Fall Hair Revival!
Now that we've identified the vandals that have defiled your lovely locks this summer, let's talk about some effective ways to revive your hair this fall, so you can start the season off with a shiny, healthy mane.
Deep Conditioner- You need a high-quality deep conditioner to nourish your strands to their core to repair and rejuvenate your hair. Weekly use of these products can restore moisture, improve hair texture, and enhance shine.
Get A Haircut- There’s more than one reason to get a fresh new haircut in the fall. Not only will you have an updated look for the season, but you’ll also say goodbye to split ends. Removing damaged ends doesn't just make your hair look healthier but also promotes better growth. So schedule trims regularly throughout the season.
Swap Shampoo & Conditioner- Switch your regular shampoo for a sulfate-free, moisturizing alternative. Sulfates can be harsh on your hair and strip away its natural oils. A milder shampoo helps maintain those natural oils that keep your hair hydrated, healthy, and strong.
Take Care Of Your Scalp Care- You’ve heard it said that a house is only as strong as its foundation. Well, don't forget the foundation of your hair – your scalp. Use sulfate-free, gentle shampoo and conditioner to treat your scalp with care. Exfoliating your scalp regularly will remove dead skin cells and create a healthier environment for hair growth.
Celebrate Your Natural Texture- Stop fighting your waves, curls, or straight strands, and celebrate your natural texture with simple no-heat styles that showcase your natural beauty. Choose styles that allow your texture to work for you rather than against you.
Brazilian Blowout- Embrace the beauty of smooth, glossy, and easy-to-manage locks this fall with a Brazilian Blowout. This treatment erases the evidence of summer’s mark on your hair and leaves you with sleek, shiny strands.
Eat Healthy and Stay Hydrated- If you want healthy hair you have to start from the inside out. Drinking plenty of water to stay well hydrated and ensuring a diet rich in vitamins and minerals your hair needs are essential.
Skip Hot Showers- As relaxing as a hot shower may be for your muscles and joints, it's not at all relaxing for your hair. Hot water can strip away your natural oils, leaving your hair dry. So turn the temp down as low as you can for a lukewarm shower instead. Your hair will thank you for it.
