FALL SEASON and your HAIR 2023
Fall, what you need to know when temperatures drop. What changes do I need to make with my hair care routine?
Cooler temperatures, wind, and cool damp rainy days can be challenging for both your hair and your skin. It's may also be the time to pull out your hair dryer once again.
First check your hairdryer look for signs of overheating, this can be as simple as checking the filter on the back of the dryer, look for lint as this can choke the motor and cause overheating, or hot spots which can burn hair, your scalp and your brushes. Next look for signs of a twisted cord, cuts, and a loose cord these can be hazardous for many reasons.
NOTE: you may be able to adjust the amount of air flow and heat on most dryers to suit your personal needs.
Please view : HOW MUCH HEAT IS TOO MUCH:
What about your hair brushes, check to see if you have damaged burnt bristles or broken nylon tips on the bristles which may break or tear the hair and scratch your scalp.
Don't forget to clean your brushes of hair and product build up to make them work more efficiently.

A combination of natural boar and nylon mix for styling and grooming is our overall best recommendation for most hair types.
Natural Boar bristles can be conditioned with you conditioner if you are having difficulty controlling STATIC just like your hair apply to bristles leave on for 2 to3 minutes then rinse.
Time to look at both your shampoo and conditioner, what you used in the summer will not be effective in the Fall. Look for shampoos with Hydrating properties which work well on finer hair as they will not add weight or make the hair limp plus provide some hydration. Volume shampoos' which worked well in the summer with humidity tend to be
drying in the Fall due to the cooler weather and can dehydrate your hair and leave finer hair flat and fly away.
If you have drier coarser hair a shampoo with Moisturizing properties will soften the hair as they contain oils which help hydrate coarse thick hair making it more manageable and feel and look healthy and shiny.
Remember there are TWO types of moisture one Water (lighter)and One OIL (heavier). Choosing the right one is critical to HAPPY HAIR.
Put away that summer leave-in conditioner as it only coats the surface and you may still have flyaway hair, instead look for a rinse out conditioner which are more effective. The label should read HYDRATING for fine hair as they tend to have less weight leaving your hair with body and volume these also are ideal for those with fine soft curls.
If your hair is drier and coarser textured, you should look for a conditioner that focuses on MOISTURIZING properties with oils such as Argan or Jojoba which will give you better conditioning getting the extra moisture your hair needs will leave your hair manageable, softer, flexible with added shine.
During the colder months it is recommended to apply a weekly treatment, a RECONSTRUCTOR addresses both strengthening properties with protein and adding moisture in the hair. The more moisture and protein your hair can hold creates a perfect balance for fine fragile hair. This is even more important if you’re bleaching or using high lift color formulas and are using hot irons for curling or straightening.
Thicker coarser hair will benefit from a treatment high in moisture with ingredients like Coconut and Jojoba oils and lower in protein strengthening properties, to achieve lustrous softer manageable hair. In most cases the same applies for thicker unruly curlier hair types, usually the tighter the curl the more oils are required.
Just as fashion and skin care changes seasonally so should your hair care regime.
