Whether it’s the cooler temperatures or the falling leaves, every summer in Idaho gives way to autumn, meaning it’s time to change the way you care for your hair. But don’t mourn the end of the sunshine season. Fall is the perfect time to help your hair recover from all the chlorine, salt, and harmful UV rays that summer has to offer. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following tips for maintaining healthy hair this fall.
Get a Darker Look
Highlights are the perfect look for summer. But as the days grow shorter and the weather turns colder, fall is the perfect time to get a darker shade. Even more, summer highlights run the risk of becoming brassy and unnatural looking over the winter. Why not embrace a rich brunette tone that supplements your natural hair color and all the fall-toned outfits of the season instead?
Turn Up the Volume
Autumn in Idaho is beautiful, but it can make fine hair look flat with its cold, dry air. If cold breezes are giving you a windswept look, now is the time to give it a boost with some volumizing shampoo and conditioner like Davines VOLU line. These salon-grade products are perfect for boosting fine or limp hair as they gently cleanse and condition, making your hair soft and light with lasting body. However, it’s important not to overapply volumizing products, as they can result in heavy build-up, making your hair appear greasy in the process.
Avoid Hot Showers
This is a tough one when the temperatures outside leave you feeling a bit chilled. While starting the day off with a hot shower may seem appealing, it can be bad for your hair. Washing or rinsing your hair with hot water can cause it to dry out, resulting in frizz. While you don’t have to suffer through cold showers, it’s important not to use overly hot water that steams up your bathroom. Trust us. Your hair will thank you.
Lather, Rinse, But Don’t Repeat
If you’re not in the pool or spending lots of time outdoors, you probably don’t have to wash your hair each day. In fact, it’s best to go a day or two between shampoos as overwashing can strip your hair of its natural oils, causing it to become dry in the process. Over shampooing can also cause your scalp to overcompensate, resulting in oily hair. That’s why it’s important to shampoo every other day instead of daily, depending on your natural hair type.
