5 Healthy Hair Tips for Fall
As our Fall season begins to pick up, many of our clients are asking how they can get their hair back in shape after a summer filled with sun, salt, and chlorine. Fall is a great time to revitalize your hair and regain those luscious locks!
Here are five natural tips to get you started:
Benefits of Fall Foods
Fall foods, including two all-time favorites, pumpkins and cranberries, are an excellent place to start. The seeds from these colorful foods yield a pressed oil that is highly antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, providing protection to follicles against damaging free-radicals. These oils, as well as that from another fall-harvest favorite, red grapes, are beginning to appear in more and more hair care products. The virtues of the grape extend beyond wine, as the oil extracted from its seed has been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties as well.
Top it off – with Water, That Is!
We encourage our clients to stay hydrated, especially at this time of year when schedules get busier and it becomes easy to forget healthy habits. Because it is cooler outside, we tend not to notice the constant evaporation occurring from our skin (including the scalp). Staying hydrated is one of the single-most important things you can do to keep your hair healthy, strong, and shiny! And, if you don’t like to drink a lot of water, we suggest green tea or herbal teas to keep yourself properly hydrated.
Shampoo Less Often
Over-washing strips the hair of its natural oils, which moisturize the scalp and help protect the hair. If you blow-dry daily, make sure you keep the heat setting on ‘low’ and the nozzle at least 6 to 8 inches from your scalp, as high heat can damage the hair and follicles.
We want you to use the best quality hair products available. Products made with the highest quality ingredients help maintain the scalp’s pH balance and improve sebum production, which will also make the transition to washing your hair less often easier. Shampoos and conditioners that are rich in natural, botanical extracts help repair and rejuvenate the follicles, such as rosemary, nettles, and chamomile.
Take a Daily Hair-Healthy Supplement
In addition to a well-balanced diet, a daily hair-healthy supplement is a great addition to consider. The best supplements are formulated to help repair and revitalize hair follicles, stimulate strong, healthy new hair growth, all the while working together to help keep your hair healthy and luscious year-round.
