Autumn is the time of year that blesses us with beautiful scenery, but it is often not conducive to keeping our hair in good condition. The hair becomes dry, more brittle and may even start to fall out
Today, we show you how to take good care of your hair in the fall and winter to prevent damage.
What makes hair unhealthy in the fall?
- Low temperatures. Cold temperatures bring with them a drop in humidity, which in turn dries out the hair and causes it to break.
- Heating your home, which also causes breakage and dryness.
- Headwear. Hats and caps of improper size and material cause static electricity in the hair and prevent the scalp from breathing freely.
What can we do to help our hair stay beautiful?
Hair care is a step you should not forget in summer either, but in autumn and winter you should devote more time and effort to it. Choose a mask or conditioner with a rich consistency and leave it on your hair for 20-30 minutes. Wrap a towel around your hair for extra conditioning. The towel raises the temperature and allows the ingredients to penetrate your hair better.
In the winter, the cold, dry air and a hat can have a negative effect on the condition of your hair and scalp. The result is a healthier hair and scalp. To avoid adding more irritants to your hair, forgo shampoos with strong detergents and opt for milder ones with gentle cleansing agents. We guarantee you won’t regret this change.
Oiling your hair is a way to give it a healthy look and beautiful shine. If you’ve been planning to start doing it, now is the best time to do it, as the emollients in the oil will help form a protective layer on your hair against the elements.
Don’t forget to wear a hat
Not all of us like the idea of wearing a hat. Not everyone will say that it ruins their hairstyle. But wearing a cap is necessary to keep your hair healthy. Why? Because it protects your hair’s most precious asset: its roots. So if you don’t want to deal with excessive hair loss, you’ll have to get over the hat! However, make sure it’s not too small and that it’s made of breathable material.
Use cosmetics with silicones
We associate silicones in cosmetics with something bad. Indeed, in some cases they are completely unnecessary, but sometimes we can turn a blind eye to them and even like them, especially in autumn and winter.
This is because silicones form a barrier on the surface of the hair, protecting it from the cold as well as from mechanical damage. What’s more, they will prevent frizz, which is a common occurrence during this period due to the friction of hair strands against jackets and scarves.
Don’t Use Hair Dryers and Straighteners
Your hair faces many obstacles during the fall and winter season. To avoid making matters worse, skip straightening and blow drying during this time. This will greatly improve the condition of your hair and prevent further damage.
Keep the rooms moisturized
You do not need special appliances for this. Simply place a damp towel on the radiator. In addition, remember to ventilate your home every day. This is important both for our health and for the health of our hair!
