3 Tips for Transitioning Hair From Summer to Fall

Thursday, July 27, 2017

It seems like it was just yesterday when we bought those versace shades and high waisted bikinis for the beach. Unfortunately, summer is slowly coming to an end and our hair regimen has to be altered for the Fall.

But before you start piling those products into a crate for storage, take a look at three hair habits that you can still use in the Fall that worked wonders in the Summer.

1. Condition, Condition, Condition
We use a lot of conditioner in  the summer in order to have our curls pop and not have to depend on a strong hold gel. however, as Fall approaches we can still use those same conditioners to ensure that our hair is still properly deep conditioned! Fall is the gateway for colder climate transitions, so we want to make sure our hair is properly prepared and the moisture is retained. Conditioners are definitely keepers!

2. Keep your hair short!
Most Women in the summer tend to have a short hair look. Just the thought of your curly coils hitting your back makes you feel stick so you end up putting it in a bun. You can keep that bun right where it is because tucked ends in the Fall can help to retain length as well so that your hair ends are not rubbing up against your favorite sweater.

3. Wash your hair often
We tend to sweat more in the summer via intense runs outdoors or just laying out on the beach with our hair laid out on a towel. Because of the buildup of sebum we can be more inclined to washing our hair more frequently to get rid of dirty or sweat. As Fall approaches we can still continue to wash our hair even two or three times a week. A common misconception is that kinkier hair shouldn't be washed often because it will be stripped of oils. Though this would be true if we are constantly washing with sulfates, it doesn't stand true if you choose to wash with a sulfate free shampoo or washing with a conditioner. In fact our hair loves water and the more water you apply to hair the happier it will be as water is the only TRUE moisturizer!
