Top 4 Haircare Routines for Autumn & Winter

1. Frizz Free for Me

As it begins to get cooler, damper, and wetter, it’s time to start thinking about how to get rid of all that frizz! The cooler weather can change your hair and can bring on a limp, dry and frizzy look. The two best ways to keep your hair under control is with a good styling routine or straightening your hair with a Keratin Smoothing System.

Fixing frizz requires hydration. A good way to tame your frizz is to use taming and moisturising products (anti-frizz serums, anti-frizz oils, anti-frizz sprays or an anti-frizz shampoo and finishing treatment). Applying a taming product on damp hair keeps your strands frizz-free. For best results, use a combination of frizz-free products. We recommend using a shampoo and then applying an anti-frizz serum on wet hair.

Remember to use the right kind of product for your hair type – if you have fine or thick hair, use the product that is for your hair type. In the salon, we use vegan-friendly products like Maria Nila True Soft, which moisturises and strengthens the structure of the hair and has smoothing Argan oil that reduces frizz and fights static. If you get caught out in the drizzle and need an instant fix on the go, its blend of coconut and moringa oils will moisturise and enhance shine and help you give frizz the brush-off in a flash.

If you are looking for a longer-term solution to your hair frizz, then you might consider a longer lasting solution. Keratin Smoothing Systems are a good way to tame frizz for 4 to 6 months. Most treatments take between 2 and 4 hours to apply. This is worth the time, as it reduces the amount of time you spend trying to det rid of frizz.

2. Invest in Good Styling Products

Using heat-activated tools can cause all sorts of breakage, especially during the cooler months. That’s why you should add a few hair protectant products (protector, serum, mousse, or cream) to your winter hair routine. Before you use your heated tools, spray a touch of protectant on your damp hair to prevent damage.

3. Time to Get a Trim

The combination of indoor heating and the change in weather conditions like rain, cold and autumn sun can affect the health of your hair, making it more prone to damage and breakage. Light doesn’t reflect well from unkempt hair either, so it can look dull and uninspiring. To fix this, get booked in with your favourite salon and go get a trim. Getting rid of your split ends will give you the shiny hair of your dreams. Want to keep your hair healthy? We recommend a regular “healthy hair care routine”.

4. Give your Tight Hair-Up Look and Bun a Rest

A ponytail or a tight bun are cute and quick looks that are great for convenience and hot days, but they cause breakage and scalp stress. Wearing your hair in a bun or ponytail is not healthy as the weather gets colder, and your hair is dryer. Instead, try wearing your hair mostly down or softly pinned up.

Top tip: if you wear a ponytail a few times a week, never wear it to bed!
