We know you're super busy and don't have time to follow a comprehensive fall hair care routine. But that doesn't excuse you from doing some simple things that will protect, pamper and prepare your hair for the changing season!
1. Wash the Wax Off
Hair wax deposits clog your roots and literally prevent your hair from breathing! They also make your hair look greasy and dirty over time. If you're a fan of hairstyling wax, pomade, deconstruction gum or putty, do remember to wash your hair every 2-3 days, running your fingers gently through your hair each time to rake the product off your scalp.
2. Avoid Over Shampooing Your Hair
When the temperature begins to change in fall, our hair needs all the moisture and nutrition it can get to stay and look healthy. Over shampooing your hair deprives it of natural oils and makes it look dull and listless. Rinse your hair twice or thrice a week with a shampoo that suits your hair type and texture and follow-up with a good quality hair conditioner to repair damages and restore softness and shine to your strands.
3. Pat and Pamper Post Shampoo
Want to dry your hair post shampoo? Never rub it too hard! Your hair is weakest when it's wet and an over-ambitious towel drying technique will only cause it to break. Instead, just pat dry your hair to avoid imposing extra friction on your strands. By doing this you'll make your hair much less prone to breakage and will be able to dry it in the gentlest manner possible!
4. Go For a Haircut ... Or Not!
Dry, dull hair triggers the development of split ends, especially as the weather begins to get colder during the fall months. It is imperative to go for a haircut every 3 weeks or so to keep split ends in check and maintain a well-groomed mane.
However, if you are planning to grow your hair this fall and don't want to sacrifice even half an inch of your hair length, moisturizing is the key! Apply some restorative hair oil on your hair, paying special attention to the ends, so that they don't look parched and damaged. If you already have long hair, tie it up in a ponytail or a man bun to lock in moisture and prevent any further damages.
5. Give Your Hair Two Minutes Every Night
Don't have time during the day to groom your hair? No problem! Spend two minutes every night, and give yourself a gentle head massage before going to bed. Running your fingers gently through your scalp is super relaxing, improves blood circulation and helps to spread natural oils throughout your hair, giving it all the nutrition it needs to stay and look healthy!
Ever thought that a simple DIY hair care routine like this one can give your hair all the tender loving care in fall!
