The Ultimate Fall Haircare Guide
Now the time has come for you to unlock the secrets to luscious locks - welcome to your ultimate journey into haircare bliss!
Hydration is your bestie: since the fall air tends to be cooler and drier our hair is led into a phase of moisture loss. Dry air can strip the hair and scalp of natural oils causing dryness, itchiness, and frizz. But have no fear because moisturizing shampoo and conditioner are here! Now's the time to switch up your shampoo and conditioner to something more hydrating. Don't wait til you get dry scalp, now is the time!
Temperature and protection matters: as the temps drop it's time for extra protection. The Birchbark Hair Protector from Antidote 1848 will do the trick! Spray that in before stepping outside to protect your hair from any harsh elements. You've probably heard us preach this a thousand times but we'll say it again... always use a heat protectant before using hot tools! Failure to do so will make your color fade, contribute to breakage, and dry out your hair. Heat Protectants are here for a reason let's make sure we're consistently using them.
Brush throughout the day, especially our long haired babes: you want to avoid matting and tangles right? So maybe its time to start carrying a brush with you. Yes, we are 100% serious! The lack of moisture in the air can cause static, matting, and more tangles. We recommend brushing your hair a few times a day to keep that mess at bay, and if that means carrying a brush with you so be it!
Keep the shower temperature lukewarm: we know that's the last thing you want to hear, but trust us when we say it's for the best! High water temperatures will strip natural oils and moisture which we're trying to avoid this fall.
Are you ready to take the action steps to attain your most gorgeous hair?
We know you just took in a lot so to sum it all up: stay hydrated and opt for hydrating products, protect your hair from the dry environment and hot tools, brush your hair three times a day, and last but not least... keep that shower at lukewarm.
By following these easy steps you're allowing beautiful hair and a healthy scalp into your life.
