Fall Hair Care Checklist: How to Keep Your Hair Healthy All Season Long

Make the list and check it twice. 

We all got in the habit of doing less to our hair during the summer season. Now it’s time to get back into the cold season groove. If you didn’t already begin switching your hair products around to complement to cold and dry temps, it’s certainly not too late. You still have a little bit of time, but we urge you to make the change now.

If can’t remember all of the healthy hair tips you used last Fall/Winter season? We feel you. Everyday there’s a new beneficial hair trip to try and it can get pretty hard to keep up with them all. If you need a refresher on what you should be doing to your hair this season, we’ve got you covered with our fall hair care checklist below:

Your Fall Hair Care Checklist: 6 Things to Do This Season

1. Out with the old.

No one talks much about fall season cleaning as they do for spring. However, you do need to clean out your beauty cabinet. Check the shelf life of your beauty products and throw out everything that has clearly served its time.

2. Protect your hair from cold-weather fabrics.

We all get excited about wearing chunky turtleneck knits and wool hats when the colder months hit, but these fabrics can wreak havoc on your locks. Protect your hair with a hair serum like Suave Professionals Split End Rescue Hair Serum. This helps act as a protective barrier between your hair and your clothing.

3. Wear the hair trends you love.

Yes, every waking day you will see a new headline about the best hair trend to try. Don’t become overwhelmed by this. It’s okay to stick to what you know how to recreate. But if you do try a challenging hair trend, don’t be afraid to tweak it and make it your own. Be unique!

4. Air-drying may not be your best option this season.

Some may argue about this, but we don’t ever recommend air-drying outdoors on the fly during the colder seasons. If you want to air-dry, do it inside or fake the textured, air-dried look by rough-drying your hair with a blowdryer.

5. Protective hairstyles are your friend.

No matter your hair type, everyone can benefit from a protective hairstyle. If you feel that you need to do something with your hair that will help protect it from daily wear and tear (which includes combing and brushing), try a style like a bun or braids for the week.

6. Keep a hair journal.

Trust us on this. You’d be surprised how helpful this can be. Ever went to a salon and your stylists asked you when the last time you colored or gave your hair a treatment was, and you couldn’t remember? Keeping a journal about all of the products you’ve used on your hair and how you reacted to them can help you in the long run.

Now you have your fall hair care checklist, it’s time to get those hairstyles ready. Try one of these fall hat hairstyles to jumpstart your style journey.
