It's official! Fall is here and with it comes everything we love; sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and chilly nights by the fire! The downside? Cold weather can wreak havoc on our sensitive curls! Skip the stress this fall and keep your curls under control with these 5 things you simply must do for your curls.
Clarify: After a summer of styling, swimming and being outdoors, it's safe to assume your curls might be suffering from some buildup. Avoid the sulfates and opt for a product like SheaMoisture Sacha Inchi Clarifying Shampoo.
Deep conditioner: If you've been doing a great job conditioning your curls this summer, don't stop now. Cold weather is when your curls will need moisture even more. Whether you create a DIY masque with ingredients found around the house or opt for a store bought product, make sure you're deep conditioning every time you cleanse.
Overnight protection: Don't forget your curls while you sleep. Gather your hair up into the “pineapple” (curls gathered on the top of your hair and secured with a gentle hair tie) for overnight protection. Don't forget your satin pillowcase to cut down on static and frizz.
Oil it up: Use your oils to continue sealing in moisture and protecting your ends from damage. Oil will create a barrier between you and the things that can cause damage to curls, like constant brushing against clothing, hats and scarves.
Trim those tips: Just because it's getting dark and cold doesn't mean you can skip your regularly scheduled trims. Making sure you are maintaining your curls with regular salon visits will help ensure their health and keep healthy hair from splitting or breaking.
