How will the change of seasons affect your hair, and how do you maintain it?

Posted by Crüe Cosmetics on

We had a wonderful summer! Not too much rain, lots of heat and pleasant summer nights. It's kind of heartbreaking to think that there are only a few weeks left at this barbecue time of the year…

Did you know that each season triggers a different energetic manifestation, visible on our skin and scalp? Autumn is a period of demineralization. This means that the scalp is sluggish, the hair is dry and prone to dandruff.

The same way you change your wardrobe every season, you should also re-evaluate your hair care practices in anticipation of the colder months.

SHAMPOO

Nothing dries hair faster than a harsh shampoo. Sebum is a waxy substance produced by the sebaceous glands in your body. It coats, hydrates and protects your hair and skin. In the spring and summer, our hair and skin are overflowing with oil, but with the dryness of fall, you need to find a moisturizing shampoo that doesn't strip your hair of its natural oils. Avoid chelating shampoos for the first 8 weeks of fall and try to reduce your shampoo sessions to once a week (if possible).

CONDITIONER

When your hair is dry and brittle, swollen cuticles are the predominant factor. The cuticle is the outer layer of our hair. It is meant to seal in moisture and protect the inner part of our hair (cortex). Your conditioner has the important role of nourishing your hair and smoothing your cuticles. During the colder fall months, deeply condition your hair twice a month with a product made with rich emollients. Look for ingredients such as: grapeseed oil , sweet almond oil , and jojoba oil. Also, instead of buying an extra conditioner, feel free to add a tablespoon of any of these oils to your favorite conditioner to give it a boost.

HARD WATER

This factor can lead to dry hair, regardless of the season. Depending on where you live, you may end up washing your hair in hard water. Hard water is water that has a high mineral content. These minerals stick to your hair and dry it out considerably. If you think this may be a problem in your household, do a pH test of your water to be sure. Consider investing in a water softener or filtration system to remove harsh minerals and metals.

READ YOUR LABELS

If you don't know what you're putting in your hair, your hair care routine will definitely cost you more time and money than necessary. Hair moisturizers should have water as the first ingredient, and products containing aloe vera, glycerin, and ceramides are generally excellent for hydration. Avoid alcohols, petroleum, mineral oils and silicones. These ingredients quickly build up on the hair, thus preventing it from receiving moisture. For reliable moisturizing hair treatment, we offer our Crüe Cosmetics Hair Repair Treatment. We also have an in-depth guide to help you navigate product labels here .

CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL

If your dryness is accompanied by hair loss or is associated with additional symptoms, you should seek medical attention and ensure that your health is not affected. Hair problems can sometimes be a symptom of something more serious.

In conclusion, our hair habits should always evolve and change with time, lifestyle and health changes in your life. Paying attention to their appearance and texture can be a game-changer for you this season!
