National Hair Day: Celebrating HLV’s birthday and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Hair Day: Celebrating HLV’s birthday and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Hair Day on October 1st is the perfect way to kick off Hair La Vie’s birthday month! It’s also Breast Cancer Awareness month, so it’s a wonderful time to celebrate women. Join the celebration by making a point to love the body you’re in, including your hair, on a daily basis. 

Whether it’s a new product that makes you feel good, a daily affirmation that lifts your soul, or a moment with others that strengthens your loving bonds–October is a great time to start celebrating who you are and the people around you.

Refresh for fall

In addition to appreciating who you are, it’s a great time to begin anew and prepare for fall. It’s time to refresh your wardrobe with kicky boots and cozy sweaters, update your reading list so you can get to that novel everyone’s talking about, make a daily walk a priority to appreciate nature. And, of course, it’s a great time to rethink your haircare routine to make the most of your hair as the weather changes. The following tips will help you on your hair journey.

More moisture

This tip isn’t just for your hair. Your skin and nails also need more moisture, and adding an extra glass of water to your routine helps. Cold weather is a moisture thief, and the best way to fight back is to keep adding more.

All-natural ingredients

Rely on products that take the best from Mother Nature and turn those ingredients into luscious products that don’t just make your hair look great, but boost health from inside out for long-term beauty.

Fresh new haircut

If you’re ready for a big style change, this is the perfect time of year to get a dramatic look. If you love your look, then there’s no reason to go drastic, but a little trim goes a long way toward removing summer damage and leaving your hair healthy and fresh looking.

Try a darker color

The bleach blonde color of summer looks out of place among the golden russet hues of fall and even stranger when warm winter tones turn up the volume. Even if you don’t want to change your hair color, a little tone control can revive your results.

Add an oil

This tip isn’t for everyone, but if you battle dry, frizzy hair, then adding a little Moroccan oil can instantly revitalize those poor, stressed tresses. You’ll see a sudden change with more natural shine and bounce. The natural vitamin E will help to moisturize your scalp, which can help promote healthy hair growth. Not only that, but the oil will help protect your hair from daily damage. It’s a win-win situation. 

Try a mask

The Hair La Vie Mask is designed to revitalize your hair and protect it from past and future damage. Before putting the mask on, try adding a little bit of honey to the mix for added benefits. 

Why It Works:

Avocados are rich in vitamins B and E. Vitamin B is also called biotin, and you’ve probably seen that ingredient in a lot of haircare products because it’s essential for hair growth and strength. Vitamin E helps repair damage on your scalp, which is bound to happen after a summer of sunburns and salty or chlorinated water.

Coconut Oil is not a new haircare ingredient. It’s been used for thousands of years to boost moisture in hair and add softness and resilience. A coconut oil haircare routine can leave you loving your shiny, soft hair all over again.

Honey is one of those natural and magical ingredients that are great for your entire body. When it comes to your hair, honey conditions, adds shine, prevents breakage, boosts your scalp health, can slow or stop hair loss, and it can even help some inflammatory skin conditions that affect your scalp.

Rethink your diet

While you’re boosting your hair health and even fueling it with a kitchen-approved hair mask, it’s time to take a hard look at your diet. 

Be honest with yourself, are you making the best food choices for your hair, body, and health? Not that you can’t indulge once in a while, but you probably shouldn’t do it at every meal. 

A little research into foods that are great for hair growth, foods that lower your cancer risk, and superfoods for health, and you’ll start to see some shared foods and a theme of fresh, natural ingredients that focus on fruits, vegetables, and legumes. Tailor your new diet to focus on these ingredients and celebrate the healthy, healing power of food.

Final thoughts

October is a great month for celebrating, but rather than grabbing the wineglass, how about celebrating with a nice avocado smoothie – for your hair and the Hair La Vie Mask when it’s time to wind down! With this being our birthday month, National Hair Day starting the month, and a focus on Breast Cancer, we think it’s the perfect time to give thanks for who you are and to be even more, focus on health, and revamp your hair routine to give your hair a head start on the fall season. 

So, slip into those trendy boots, your favorite cozy sweater, and savor the moment while you chart the course to a new, improved and healthier version of you.
