Great things are coming in autumn, so why not take it up a notch

Great things are coming in autumn, so why not take it up a notch

Are you ready to change your hair routine? Whether you’re ready or not, autumn is coming, and it’s a season of big changes. Great big changes! If you hop on the bandwagon, you too can get in on some new stuff and feel great about it. 

Your first priority should be your hair. Cold weather with less humidity feels more comfortable and gets you back into sweaters and boots, but it also leaves your hair confused and ready for some TLC.

Ways to care for your hair this autumn

Follow these hair care tips for autumn, and you’ll refresh and refuel your hair with what it needs to look healthy and feel amazing.

Bring on the moisture

Less moisture in the air means less moisture in your hair. While you love the way it feels outside, your hair is sadly withering away. You should already be conditioning every single time you get your hair wet, whether you’re going to wash it or not

The good news is there are a lot of ways you can moisturize your hair. To get the best results, you might want to try adding several of these hair moisturizing techniques to your hair care routine.

Use a mask. Whether you make the mask yourself or go the easy route and use the Hair La Vie Mask, monthly treatments will make your hair feel instantly hydrated and more manageable.

Use natural ingredients. Look for products that are rich in natural ingredients, especially oils that moisturize hair, like coconut oil, jojoba oil, Moroccan oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oil.

Skip your regular heat treatments. If you use a blow dryer, a curling iron, a straightening iron, or any other heat-based styling tools, give them a rest. They are notorious for drying out your hair, and when your hair is adjusting to a season change, it’s best to skip the style for a while.

Take vitamins. Did you know that some vitamins and minerals add nutrition to your hair that it desperately needs in dry weather? Look to add more B vitamins, folic acid, magnesium, silica, zinc, and sulfur. Hair La Vie's Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins contain a proprietary blend of 20 natural ingredients that work to reduce follicle damage and promote thicker, fuller-looking hair.

Leave-in conditioner. When there is static electricity in the house, then a quality Nº 77 Leave-In conditioner is a must! If you struggle with oily roots, use the leave-in on the tips only.

Embrace a darker color

It’s only natural to want to change your color when the season changes. Since lighter hues reach fever pitch during our summer months, a new fall look usually includes trying a darker shade.

The best part about going dark during autumn is that the trends are right there with you. If you really want to baby your hair, go for a balayage color. Balayage coloring is healthier for your hair because there is less process on the hair. This gives you a softer, silkier result and maintains more of your natural moisture.

Use a clarifying shampoo

Take one hard look at all the products you use in the summer to create a seemingly effortless style. Those products can build-up on your roots and your hair strands. The result is a limp and lifeless look that drags you down. A good clarifying shampoo can get rid of this excess build-up. Formulated with 19 natural and fortifying ingredients, Hair La Vie Shampoo is designed to gently cleanse your hair while invigorating your scale without frizz-causing SLS, dyes, or parabens. 

One thing to note, if you’re coloring your hair, skip the clarifying because it will remove your color along with the product build-up. If you’ve got glorious natural color, clarify and then moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. 

Get a trim

Refresh your style by trimming off the split ends that are zapping your hair’s moisture and making it look frizzy. When you’re visiting with your stylist, ask them if they have any tips for your hair. Since each person has different hair, this personalized professional advice has great merit. 

Final thoughts

For every season there is a change, and you need to be ready to change with it. As hot summer days shift to cooler and dryer autumn days, your hair needs a little care to stay lush and gorgeous. 

In addition to moisturizing, you might want to try a clarifying shampoo like Hair La Vie Shampoo or change your hair color, but not both. Getting a trim can also give your hair a fresh perspective and keep it in great condition. With all of these tips, you’re going to love the way your hair looks this season.
