The change between seasons can be a great thing, depending on where you are and whether you love the upcoming season.
If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, you're either clinging to the last few warm days or happily awaiting sweater weather. If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, you might just be happy to shuck off all your winter gear and move on!
Transitional weather can affect more than our moods and productivity. Skin and hair can take a beating, too. Protect–or buffer–your response with a few handy tips.
GENERAL TIPS FOR HAPPY HAIR
Don’t ignore your hair
If you're usually low-maintenance, be attentive. Your hair and body can freak out with the change in season. Forgive it for its sudden bouts of frizz and fussiness, if it’s outside of the norm. It'll behave better in a few weeks’ time! In the meantime, give it whatever it needs–moisture, humidity, a product switch-up or a pared-down routine.
Bust out those next season products
It might be a while before you need to crack out the humidifier, but it’s time to think about ways you can introduce moisture into your routine. Use a mask or deep conditioning treatment weekly instead of every other week.
Or pare things down. Switch to something lighter to transition into spring.
Be on the lookout for the frizz monster
Don’t let frizz stand in the way between you and great hair days! We’ve talked about frizz extensively on the blog, so there’s no need to give up your favorite look or your favorite wireless hair iron!
HOW TO PREP FOR FALL
Frizz might be a problem going into autumn. Moisturize your hair and arm yourself with a dependable styling product to keep your style in check.
Exfoliate your scalp
Dry scalp and dandruff can happen with the temperature drop. Make sure to use a product like Briogeo’s Scalp Revival to keep itchy, dry scalp at bay. A massager works too, but you can give yourself a free, salon-worthy massage with some practice.
Flyaways, by way of static cling, go hand in hand with sweater weather. The frizz-fighting tips will help! And stash a few dryer sheets in your bag or at the office for a quick solution to an annoying problem!
