1. Darken Things Up
During the summer time it’s expected to rock hair color and highlights that are on the lighter side. I know that I especially love to see Queens slaying honey blonde, blonde and platinum colored hair and weaves. But as the seasons change, just as we start reaching for that darker shades of lipstick during the Fall/Autumn season the same goes for our hair. If black is too basic for you an alternate suggestion can be burgundy, dark red, or even chocolate brown.
2. Trims! What say Ye?
We all know the scorch of the summer heat can be brutal to the health of hair. Typically Fall is a good time to get rid of split and brittle ends. However I do know that trims are a very sensitive matter and everyone has their own or a different schedule concerning trims. So don’t trim because I say so. If during the summer you maintained an on target hair care routine and the summer wasn’t able to wreak havoc on your tresses than keep pushing forward with your hair goals. The point of it all is to assess and evaluate your hair trimming needs seasonally or even as needed.
3. Out Here Wooling Around
Temperatures will be dropping more and more as Fall makes way for Winter. Well, not here in Miami for me. But you know what I mean. Although I do wish Florida would bring to my way the gift of Snow just once in my lifetime. Nevertheless, for those of you who experience cold to frigid weather -breaking out the wool scarves and collar jackets are the norm. Wool is notorious for snagging tresses and unless you have a full weave or will be rocking updos just be mindful that wool dries hair and causes breakage due to friction. A few preventative measures to protect hair from wool would be to line wool hats and scarves with silk and to moisturize hair regularly.
