Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING season is officially upon us, it’s in candles, body lotion, our food and of course our favourite morning pick me up latte. Along with chunky knit sweaters and cute ankle booties come the cooler, drier temperatures. Goodbye humidity, hello static!
Not only is the air naturally drier, but we also have to deal with things like moisture zapping heaters, scarves and dreaded hat hair.
The change in temperature can confuse your hair, and the integrity of your strands may feel the stress of it. Not to worry! Our hair experts have shared their beauty tips and tricks to keeping your hair looking and feeling its best.
Switch up your shampoo and conditioner. During the summer we gravitate towards lightweight products, but during the drier months opt for a more moisturizing set. We recommend using a deep conditioning mask once a week to provide that boost of hydration.
Going darker. Darker doesn’t mean getting rid of those sun-kissed blonde pieces you worked so hard on maintaining all summer. Giving yourself a break from lightening your hair will allow it to heal. Intermediate Colourist Jade of Medulla & Co Yorkville recommends switching to a glossing treatment during those months to help with making your hair feel soft and adding shine without the commitment of going darker.
Lose the ponytail. Yes, it was a lifesaver for summer, and no doubt you’ll be desperate to keep that static sticking to your face. Ponytails are one of the culprits for hair breakage, and in this weather, your hair is more brittle and prone to it. Instead, use a lightweight hairspray to keep those flyaways out of your face.
Invest in proper styling products. We’re all guilty of having a hoard of beauty products that sit out of sight, waiting to be used. It’s important to use products that your hair needs and not just because you need to finish the bottle. TO112 Hair Cream is a miracle cream with 8 benefits that will get your hair through the colder months and into the spring.
Trim your hair! This is one tip we will never stop offering. It doesn’t matter how many products you have to protect from split ends, once you have breakage it will keep happening. “The ends of your hair become fragile and translucent over time. Your hair won’t feel like it’s growing because the ends will keep snapping off” Senior Stylist Tory of Medulla & Co Queen West says.
