Autumn brings a new set of hair care woes as we struggle with hydration. The change in seasons signals a fresh new challenge. Namely, dry hair!
Cozy beanies, snuggly blankets and toasted pumpkin lattes might well be totally dreamy but dehydrated hair and brittle, dry ends are quite frankly a nightmare. Don’t let the damp weather affect your spirits or your hair.
We’re here as always with our top tips to help you “autumn-actically” hydrate your hair and bring it back to luscious life. Get ready to ditch dull, lifeless hair with our top hydrating tips.
Invest In A Haircare Routine
You need to care for your hair. If you don’t, no-one else will. You might well shampoo and condition regularly and perhaps even treat your hair to a weekly Reconstructing Masque but do you have a nighttime ritual? If not, why not?
No doubt you go to great lengths to remove your makeup and apply your overnight moisturizing cream before bed, taking great care of your skin. Can the same be said of your hair though?
We recommend that you always gently brush your hair before bed and apply just a few drops of Fluoro 5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil through the ends to protect and restore your strands while you drift off to the land of dreams. Swap for a silk scrunchy to tie long hair back into a ponytail and that way, it won’t get damaged either.
Your hair has a remarkable ability to hydrate itself. Sometimes it’s good just to let Mother Nature take over. Washing too often could be a bad thing, stripping your hair of its natural oils and leading to unnecessary dryness. Healthy hair doesn’t necessarily mean daily washing. What’s more important is that you have a regular routine and use deeply hydrating products.
If you currently wash every day, try skipping a day. If your routine is to wash every two days, prolong that to every third. Then when you do clean your mane, get ready to lather and luxuriate with deeply replenishing products that are proven to fight frizz, seal and repair split ends and banish months of bad stylistic habits. You really can’t go wrong with the Number 4 Hydrating Collection.
Uniquely formulated with N4’s anti-aging and color-protecting organic ingredients, Hydrating Shampoo and Condition are your fail-safe, dry hair miracle workers. Infused with Vitamin B5 to create shine, this luxuriously lathering yet lightweight concentrated combination of products literally has the power to bring hair back from the dead!
Take Some Breaks From Heat Styling Tools
Step away from the curling iron! It’s good to go cold turkey on the heat styling tools every once in a while, especially if you want to repair brittle hair. It might be the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced! Up there with leaving the house without mascara but trust us, just one week without turning up the heat and those stressed out stands will breathe a big sigh of relief as they slowly come back to life.
Don’t Skip Your Salon Visit
Even if you are currently committed to growing your hair, regular salon visits are an absolute must if you want to repair dry hair and prevent seasonal split ends. There’s only so much punishment from central heating and pulling on and off of a bobble hat or beret that your hair can withstand.
Frequent trims encourage hair growth; great news if you want longer locks. So put your stylist on speed dial and commit to a regular snip! That way, you will reduce breakage and the spread of flyaway, damaged hair that’s just a pain to control. In between trims, you can always add a few drops of Fluoro 5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil to our Hydrating Condition, creating a luxurious cocktail of moisture and shine for your hair.
Treat Your Tresses To A Reconstructing Masque
To keep your treasured tresses in tip-top shape this Fall, we recommend you use our Reconstructing Masque. Packed with soy and potato proteins (no pumpkins sadly, we’ll reserve those for the spiced latte), it protects hair from the harsh seasonal winds of change. It can help make hair up to three times stronger while adding a shot of shine and stylish definition. Commit to using this deeply nourishing masque once a week and you’ll certainly combat your dry hair concerns.
