Fall Hair Care Tips for Kentucky

Bounce Back From Summer

Summer can take a lot out of your hair! Many of us spend extra time in the sun, lighten our hair or spend a lot of time in the pool. So, the first thing you should do this Fall with your hair is pamper it. Help get it healthy again by treating it to:

  • Weekly deep conditioner treatment
  • Fresh haircut – Bye-bye split-ends!
  • Use a clarifying shampoo to strip product build up from your hair

Switch Up Your Product Line Up


Fall usually signals the end of the battle against frizz. That means, it's time to switch up your hair arsenal. Instead, of anti-humectants, now you stock up on volumizing products. It can also be a great time to take a break from heat styling since the weather is now working with you and not against you – Let that natural texture flourish!

Use Fall as an opportunity to get a fresh look. Not only can a new 'do lift your spirits, it can also keep your hair healthy and strong. For instance, if your go-to look is a tight, top-bun, you might start to notice signs of strain on your hair from too much tension. Even something as simple as moving your part over a little can add new life to your hair. You can get ideas from Instagram, magazines or even ask Maddie at the "Buns & Braids" class.
