The sight of orange and pink hued skies, the sound of russet leaves crunching underneath your feet, and the smell and feel of fresh nippy air colliding with your skin, can only mean one thing. Autumn has arrived. The season of change, where larger than life, vibrant green trees push leaves off their branches (which is where the American term ‘fall’ originated from), so they can prepare for and survive the blustery Winter, is a process we are all familiar with.
Like trees, we also make changes to our lives by pushing our colorful summer clothes to the back of our wardrobes, and bringing forward the cosy sweaters, thin jackets and stylish boots as we prepare for chillier temperatures. If we do this for our wardrobes, have you given any thoughts to your hair care routine? Seasonal weather changes can bring about numerous affects to your hair such as dryness of the scalp, extra frizz and many more! To give your hair the extra TLC that it deserves, read on to our hair tips below to help you create the perfect cold-weather hair routine so you can enjoy this resplendent season like the trees!
Tip #1: Moisture & Nourish
We witnessed a very hot summer in 2020, and with not much to do during lockdown many of us probably spent way too much time in our gardens trying to catch the sun with some leisure reading or simply sipping a bit of bubble (as you do). With this in mind, your hair is probably much drier because of it. Unfortunately, sorry to disappoint, but Autumn makes it even worse. Colder temperatures outdoors and harsh indoor heating makes our hair dry, dull and frizzy, which requires even more styling as we try to tame our mane overtime.
Hence, it is so crucial to spoil your hair with lots of moisture. There are several ways you can do this such as changing your shampoo and conditioner and treating yourself to a weekly hair mask that nourish and moisturise your scalp and strands. We’d highly recommend using Goldwell’s Dualsenses Rich Repair collection this season, which restores severely damaged hair structures from deep within your scalp and reawakens the shine of natural hair. Made for dry to damaged hair, below are the products which are a must for your Autumnal shower routine:
Tip #2: Chop those split ends!
Just like your clothes, your haircut needs to be updated too. It is simply not acceptable for those split ends to be taken with you to the next season so make sure you book yourself an appointment with your local stylist to take care of those. All that is needed is the slightest of chop to the lengths to give you that fresh, groomed, and healthy looking hair without affecting the long length, if that is what you are worried about.
Tip #3: Trending Autumnal Haircuts of 2020
Let’s face it, the 2020 lockdown has been confusing and difficult for so many. We have been unnaturally forced to stay indoors for the longest period ever thrown upon us which has some of us in a rather reflective mood. Have the last few months left you wanting a change in life? If so, the first place to start is your hair. As Coco Chanel rightly said, ‘A woman who changes her hair, is about to change her life!’. We have had the pleasure of creating some magical transformations but below are some examples of hair trends we foresee continuing through to Winter and the beginning of 2021.Asymmetrical Lob & The Pixie Crop
Tip #4: Trending Autumnal Hair Colours of 2020
To match the Autumnal hues of red, orange and brown, why not blend in and change your tresses to warmer and brighter colours? No matter what length your hair is or tone your skin is, there is a shade available that is perfect for every woman. A creative and talented colourist will help you find the right shade so it reflects your personality, style and season, as no face is the same and naturally, every woman's hair is different too!
