With the onset of autumn, hair tends to fall out as leaves fall from tree branches. Not to mention it is particularly vulnerable to temperature changes. Hence the need to take special care of it at this time of year.
The MAKEUP online store offers a selection of 77,000 products from 2,000 different brands. Among this wide catalog of perfumes, cosmetics, hygiene and care products, the Schwarzkopf range allows you to adopt the perfect routine for sporty, shiny and healthy hair all year round.
1. Spacing between shampoos
Frequent shampooing damages the hair. It is in your best interest to keep them as far apart as possible. Especially since this will allow, in the medium term, to naturally regulate fat production. Thus, two to three times a week, depending on the nature of your hair, will be more than enough.
But, let’s be honest, sometimes the “greasy hair” aspect is hard to assume. Thus, for hair that tends to become greasy quickly, dry shampoo is a real ally by giving it a fresh, clean look, including at the roots.
2. Comb your hair daily
You might think that brushing your hair too much leads to hair loss. It is actually quite the opposite. Indeed, by passing the brush along its entire length, the sebum at the roots of the hair goes down to the ends. Although it is often considered the absolute enemy, this natural fatty substance plays an essential protective role for hair.
Provided you take some precautions. Thus, using a wooden brush or a bristle brush instead of a hard or plastic comb will allow you to avoid breaking or snagging your hair at the slightest knot.
It is also important to start brushing the ends by first getting rid of the lower nodes, before gradually combing the brush. Finally, to make brushing easier, it is highly recommended to turn to products like detanglers or conditioners right after washing.
3. Use hair dryers and straighteners in moderation
Whoever says low temperatures says frequent use of a hair dryer. This is completely normal! If it is advisable to blow dry your hair before going out in the morning when the cold has indicated the tip of his nose, there are still some precautions to follow.
Make sure, for example, that you always use the appliance with a nozzle to limit the access of hot air to your hair. If you’re washing your hair at night, take the opportunity to blow your hair dryer before letting your wet hair air dry.
Heat is known to severely damage hair. It is also for this reason that daily use of other heating devices such as a hair straightener or curling iron is highly not recommended.
4. Remember to make masks regularly
Cold can make hair drier and more brittle. To avoid the “matt” effect, nothing is better than a mask to moisturize and strengthen hair that has been weakened by low temperature. It is recommended to perform these masks once a week or once every two weeks after rinsing off the shampoo and conditioner.
5. Take advantage of the many benefits of vegetable oils
Whether you apply them directly to your hair, in oily baths or whether they are incorporated into shampoos or other care products, vegetable oils offer many benefits to hair, starting with their hydrating properties.
Be careful though: Not all oils are suitable for all hair types. Argan oil, avocado oil, or babassu oil moisturize dry, brittle hair while apricot kernel oil slows seasonal hair loss. Castor oil, in turn, can promote their growth. Finally, in addition to preventing dryness, broccoli oil will have a soothing and soothing effect on your skin.
