Now that the fall season is upon us, the quick change of the weather affects our hair drastically. Even more, if you have over-processed hair (like mine). Every summer I always change my hairstyle and color to look my best. Personally, having sun-kissed hair is always synonymous with the summer season. Often times, I get carried away. Dyeing is already harsh enough, but to reach a certain blonde color I have to bleach my hair multiple times. Like one is not bad enough. Then in colder seasons such as fall and winter, I tend to go back to my natural darker hair color. Can you imagine the damage I have done?
I am sure a lot of you can relate. After all, our generation has DIY kits readily available and accessible to us in local stores. Just in case you do not have processed hair, I want to clarify that you can still benefit from reading this post. If you have damaged, stressed hair or simply need a good boost – I have rounded up my top 5 tips to help freshen up everyone’s fall hair care routine.
- Shampoo Less – during summer, the weather gets humid and everything feels extra sticky and heavy. This results in heavy, oily and dirty feeling hair that needs extra washing. On the other hand, during the colder days, our hair becomes frizzier, dry and brittle. Shampooing less this fall will help promote natural oil production that will help strengthen your hair. If you shampoo daily, try giving your hair a break once or twice every week.
Use products with natural ingredients like SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Shampoo. Gentle, sulfate free, paraben free, and more. In addition, it also promotes hair growth.
Condition Generously – to have voluminous hair minus the kink, do not be stingy with the conditioner. While showering try leaving it on for at least 2-3 minutes. Even better if you can add low-heat during the process of conditioning. It works best when it is able to thoroughly penetrate and coat all of your hair strands. You can use a shower cap to achieve best results.

- Do Not Forget the Treatment – while everyone’s hair is different, we can all benefit from applying treatments and practicing proper scalp care. Just like our skin, moisturizing and toning are necessary. The same concept applies to scalp and hair care.
- Detangle – we have all been guilty of detangling with our fingers. At one point or another, I am sure you have used your fingers to free your hair from tangles and knots. Except, doing so only adds stress and damage. Use a detangling brush or a wide-tooth comb to avoid this problem.
- Supplement – more often than not, our daily meals are not enough to deliver the proper nutrition our hair, skin, and nails need. Taking a supplement will make a big difference.
Following these tips will guarantee you healthier, dazzling, soft hair throughout the colder days ahead. Make sure to check out SheaMoisture products – they’re made with natural, certified organic ingredients and are sustainably produced goodness. After all … good hair days start with great products.
