Heading into a new season means a change in wardrobe, so why wouldn’t we change our hair habits? As the temperatures begin to drop you might notice slight changes in the feel or appearance of your hair, you can thank the atmosphere for that. Instead of doing the same thing and expecting different results, get a jumpstart on a new care routine by swapping out old habits in favor of better ones!
Book a trim
When is the last time you had your hair trimmed? If you have to think about it, it’s been too long. If you’re worried about length, ask for a slight dusting and a refresh to your layers. By trimming often, the state of your hair will be greatly improved, as will the ability to style. Fresh ends, free of splits and damage, have less of a tendency to break off and will feel softer whether air-drying or blow-dry styling.
Transitioning from summer to fall and winter can be tough on both your scalp and your strands. With exposure to dryer climates, you may notice an itchy scalp or frizzy hair — this is caused by a loss of moisture. To combat the effects before they begin, invest in a wash system dedicated to improving the state of your scalp as well as deep conditioners to protect your strands. Wella Professionals Invigo Balance Senso Calm Sensitive Shampoo and Invigo Balance Senso Calm Sensitive Mask are the perfect place to begin.
Toss old products
Although spring is known for cleaning out your closet, any change in season is a great time to evaluate the products you have laying around. If you have half-used products that have been laying around for a year or more, it is best to swap out products for newer versions. Over time the efficacy of products can deteriorate or harbor the growth of bacteria, so it is best to play it safe.
Ramping up for the cooler weather is only half of the battle, making sure remnants of a summer well spent don’t make their way into the new season is the other. It can be a great idea to thoroughly clarify hair between seasons, especially after summer, to rid hair of product buildup, salt, sunscreen, and sand. Not only will this improve the look of your hair it will give your scalp a good cleansing so you’re able to add moisturizing products that will fully penetrate to work their magic. It can also be a great idea to clarify hair prior to your next hair color appointment to ready your strands for a new shade. We suggest Wella Professionals Invigo Balance Aqua Pure Purifying Shampoo to rid hair of impurities and pollutants while refreshing and caring for your scalp.
