As the colder seasons begin to creep in, the current hot topic (other than pumpkins, cosy knitwear, and spice lattes), is hair health.
Whether you’re looking for some post-summer rejuvenation or taking a pre-emptive step towards the cooler weather, it’s going to be vital to focus on your hair care routine this season to keep your locks hydrated and healthy.
Here are our top four tips to take you from hot girl summer to hot girl autumn.
1. TRIM AWAY THE SUMMER DAMAGE
Soaring temperatures over the summer led to many A-list names go for a dramatic short transformation, with the ‘box bob’ continuing to dominate. Hailey Bieber’s bob became an iconic look this year, and even Kim Kardashian has now traded her signature sweeping lengths for a sleek polished bob.
It’s no surprise seeing people opt for a shorter look to trim away the damage caused by sun, sea, and chlorine. Neglecting split ends can lead to further damage as they travel up the hair shaft. This can cause increased frizz, dryness, and a brittle appearance… not the vibe we want this autumn!
If shorter hairstyles aren’t for you and instead you want to grow your hair throughout winter, we recommend keeping on top of snipping those split ends. This will help to prevent those nasty issues we just mentioned, allowing you to maintain the thickness and length of your hair.BOOK YOUR AUTUMN CUT
2. BOOK YOUR INTERIM SERVICE TO REFRESH YOUR FADED COLOUR
UV rays, combined with exposure to saltwater and chlorine extends beyond just moisture loss; they can also strip the colour from your hair. So, if you’ve spent time abroad this year, you’ve likely noticed your colour has faded. This is where an interim service can help.
Interim services act as a safeguard for your hair’s health and colour intensity. Just like a car needs regular check-ups to keep running smoothly, our hair requires periodic attention to maintain its lustre, vibrancy, and strength.
As our hair changes throughout the seasons, interim services will allow stylists to identify and address any issues emerging. Stylists can then provide the necessary treatment to ensure your hair stays in peak condition and that your colour looks as beautiful as the day it was first applied.LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR AUTUMN REFRESH PACKAGES
3. SWITCH UP YOUR HAIR CARE REGIME
As the cold and wet seasons approach, there are many factors your hair may struggle with during winter. Frizziness, static, dryness, breakage… the list goes on unfortunately. However, you can prevent all of these with the right products.
When temperatures drop, moisture will be stripped from your hair so it’s important to invest in products that will help to restore this. Hair masks, oils, conditioners, and leave-in sprays will be useful to keep hair nourished and restore strength and elasticity. You’ll also likely be using heated styling tools much more so you’ll want to invest in a good heat protectant.
Across our Regis locations, we stock a range of products from high-end brands which cater to all hair types. If you’re not sure what’s best for your hair, speak to our experts at your nearest salon who can give you tailored recommendations.
