Ahhh, autumn! It’s finally time for leaf-peeping, cozy sweaters, spooky films, apple pie, and all things pumpkin spice.
But as the days get shorter and temperatures drop, you might notice your hair becoming drier and more prone to breakage. Just as the changing seasons require shifts in your wardrobe and daily rhythms, it’s important to transition your hair care routine as well.
Try these tips to keep your mane hydrated, soft and manageable this fall.
Get a Trim
After a hot summer spent in and around the water, there’s a good chance your hair has been exposed to the drying effects of sun, salt and chlorine. The transition to fall is the perfect time to get a trim and let go of those summertime split ends. If your hair is thin or thinning, ask your stylist for “blunt ends” to help your mane look thicker.
Prioritize Scalp Care
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp! Creating a regular scalp care practice can support healthy circulation, stronger roots and a fuller appearance. Every evening before bedtime, apply Hair Boost Serum and massage it into your roots with the Professional Scalp Massage Brush. The scalp massager activates the hero ingredients in the serum for a deeply nourished, hydrated and balanced scalp!
Turn Down the Shower Temperature
Hot showers feel amazing on crisp fall mornings or chilly evenings, but scorching temps can strip away natural oils and dehydrate your strands. Stick to warm or lukewarm water when washing your hair for a smoother, shinier, less frizzy finish.
Use a Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner
Fall hair is prone to dryness and damage, so it’s important to use a hydrating (yet lightweight) shampoo and conditioner. BOLDIFY Hair Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner are an ideal choice for this season. They infuse your strands with weightless moisture and nourishment for a visibly thicker, fuller finish today and longer, stronger locks over time.
Lock in Moisture with Serum
Autumn hair tends to be drier, and shampooing your hair can remove even more moisture. Applying a lightweight serum after washing and conditioning your strands helps to restore hydration and prevent breakage.
BOLDIFY Hair Thickening Serum plumps and volumizes your hair while nourishing strands with Biotin and natural plant extracts. It also doubles as a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant to defend against damage!
Hydrate your hair with a weekly hair mask, deep-conditioning treatment or hair oil. We love using organic coconut oil as a natural deep conditioner! Let it absorb into the hair for a few hours (for fine hair) or overnight (for thick, dry or damaged hair) then wash out with shampoo
Work on Your Wellness
As we return to work, school and a more structured schedule this autumn, you may be thinking about getting back into a healthy routine. Even as the weather cools down, continue drinking plenty of water (64+ ounces per day) to keep your scalp and hair well-hydrated. If you don’t love the taste of plain water, check out these spa-worthy infused water recipes for fall.
Balanced nutrition is also super important for growing strong, healthy hair. While there’s nothing wrong with indulging in a few pumpkin treats or Halloween cookies, make sure you’re prioritizing the fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and proteins your mane needs to thrive. If you don’t eat perfectly every day, BOLDIFY’s strawberry Hair Gummies can help fill in some gaps with a beautifying dose of Biotin and other essential hair nutrients
Pump Up the VOLUME
Flat hair is not the vibe for fall– it’s all about body, fullness and BOUNCE! Amp up limp locks with Root Boosting Spray, which gives you lift and support right where you need it most. For baby-fine hair, use Hair Volumizing Powder to bind, separate and lift each individual hair follicle for instantly fuller, flowier locks.
When you need an instant volume boost in dry hair, apply Dry Texturizing Spray to your roots and lengths and work it through your hair with your fingers. This natural texturizer revives flat hair, enhancing volume and texture for that carefree, “undone” look you love.
Invest in Quality Styling Tools
Summer is the season for air-drying your locks and embracing your natural hair. Now that fall is here, you may want to start blow-drying your hair again for a more polished look. Just remember, heat styling tools can be a major source of damage to your mane.
Treat yourself to high-quality tools that will dry and style your hair quickly to minimize heat exposure. We recommend the BOLDIFY Professional Blow Dry Brush for creating all your favorite fall hairstyles. The ceramic barrel is infused with Keratin and Biotin to ensure even heat distribution, defend against damage and promote soft, healthy hair.
Try Something New
Whether it’s a fresh color, bangs, or just a different style, fall is the perfect time to get creative with your hair. We’re loving this season’s glossy ponytails and sleek bob haircuts, but if that’s not your thing, why not learn to do a new braid or upstyle? New season, new look!
