Transitioning Your Hair From Summer To Fall: Danielle’s Tips and Tricks
As the leaves change and the air becomes crisp, it's time to bid farewell to those carefree summer days and embrace the cozy vibes of fall. But transitioning your hair from the sun-soaked, salty beach waves of summer to the richer, more textured styles of autumn can be a bit of a challenge.
Fear not! In this guide, I'll share expert tips to help you gracefully transition your hair from summer to fall, ensuring that your locks remain healthy, vibrant, and on-trend throughout the season.
Hydration is Key
The transition from summer to fall often means drier air, which can leave your hair feeling parched. Start by replenishing lost moisture with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Consider using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to maintain hair health. My favorite is the Hydration Mask from Moroccanoil
Trim and Tidy
Visit me for a trim to remove any split ends or damage that may have accumulated during the summer. This sets the stage for healthier growth and a fresh, polished look for fall.
Embrace Richer Tones
As you swap out your wardrobe for fall colors, consider updating your hair color too. Rich, warm tones like chestnut brown, auburn, or deep reds can complement the season perfectly. Come in for a consult to find the shade that suits your skin tone and style.
Protect from Heat Styling
Summer is often associated with air-drying hair, but fall may require more heat styling. Always use a heat protectant spray before using hot tools to shield your hair from damage. My favorite heat spray is Perfect Defense from Moroccanoil.
Invest in quality tools and use them on a lower heat setting when possible.
Transition your summer beach waves to more structured and polished styles for fall. Experiment with sleek ponytails, braided updos, or soft, loose curls. These styles work well with cozy fall outfits and help prevent frizz in cooler, damper weather.
Don’t forget about your scalp’s health. Cooler weather can sometimes lead to dryness or flakiness. Use a gentle exfoliating scalp scrub to remove buildup, followed by a nourishing scalp oil or serum to keep it moisturized.
Less Frequent Washing
During the summer, you might have needed to wash your hair more frequently due to heat and humidity. In fall, you can typically go longer between washes, which helps maintain your hair’s natural oils and prevents excessive dryness.
Transitioning your hair from summer to fall doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With the right care, hydration, and styling, you can embrace the beauty of autumn while keeping your locks healthy and vibrant. Follow these tips, and your hair will be ready to shine in any fall setting, from cozy bonfires to stylish sweater weather outings.
