Transitioning your Hair Routine from Summer to Fall
Summer, for many, is our favorite time of year, but the same can’t always be said for our hair. After a chlorine and ocean-filled summer, Fall is the perfect time to give your hair a break and get it back to its optimal state before the arrival of winter, which can also often be a catalyst for drier, brittle hair with a lot more breakage due to the hard winter cold.
This fall, we want to get your hair looking and feeling it’s best with Semi di Lino, that’s why we’re sharing everything you need to know to keep your hair healthy + beautiful. All you need to do is follow some simple steps to transition your hair care routine from summer to fall.
What happens to your hair in the fall?
This season calls for cooler weather and less sunny days - both which can severely affect your beautiful mane. After likely putting your hair through the wringer in the summer months, the drop in temperature can make it hard for it to regain that necessary moisture. The muggier days also mean you're not receiving as much Vitamin D which is imperative for hair growth. Not to mention, you may have noticed more hair fall-out than usual. This time of year brings seasonal hair loss which can worsen when paired with a dry scalp and brittle ends.
How can we help prevent this?
First things first, you want to take care of your scalp and make sure you’re washing with the right products. We love our Semi di Lino Scalp line!
Overwashing your hair can strip it of all the essential oils it needs to thrive resulting in a drier scalp and more hair loss. Switching to a reparative or moisturizing shampoo and conditioner such as Semi di Lino Reparative or Nutritive will also ensure that when you do wash it, it has the right ingredients to stay nourished.
Next, you need moisture! While the right shampoo and conditioner can help immensely, a good hair mask can really take it to the next level. Using a moisturizing mask such as our Semi di Lino Nutritive Hair Mask once a week will give it much-needed moisture, prevent breakage and tangling while giving it that extra shine you need for this dull weather.
Lock in all the benefits with one of our serums for deeper hydration and nourishment. Our favorites are Semi Di Lino Diamond All-In-One Spray and Semi di Lino Sublime Cristalli.
Lastly, upkeep is everything. You want to make sure you get your routine trims every 3-4 months to ensure your locks stay healthy, and you remove breakage. You also don’t want to be using too much heat, and if you’re big into heat styling, make sure to protect your hair before applying heat with our Style Stories Thermal Protector.
