Caring for my hair this autumn

*PR samples and Affiliate links.

The weather has been really cold in the last couple days here in Cheshire. I am so happy I have my natural hair in a protective style. The cold weather tends to break my hair so it is really not the time for me to let the fro out. I like to keep my hair protected and nourished during the autumn/winter season, so I can enjoy it in the summer.

Here are some hair products I will be adding to my haircare routine this season –

 

Nanogen Hair Hydrator £12.50

I love this Nanogen Hair Hydrator a lot. It is a lightweight thickening gel that adds shine to the hair while removing fizz. I love the texture and fragrance as well as the packaging. I also love how it moisturises. This is one haircare product I am going to be using a lot of this season. It will be a great addition to my haircare routine after a wash.

This Root Boost Hair Thickening Spray by Nanogen is the real deal. I love how it thickens every strand. My hair feels instantly fuller once I use this hair care product. It is a light, fast absorbing spray that instantly adds bounce and fullness to the hair. I love the fragrance and the packaging here as well. It is now one of my favourite haircare products, and I can see myself using this for a long time.

Spray Bottle

I always make sure my water spray bottle is topped up and ready for use. In the bottle, I have 60% water, 20% leave in conditioner (I currently use Cantu) and 20% coconut oil. I spray my hair about twice a day and it helps keep my hair moisturised and nourished. This water spray bottle technique is the best thing I have ever done for my hair. It has changed my haircare routine for the better.

Humidity and your Hair

For those of us with curly hair, we know exactly what kind of effect high humidity can have on it. Without warning our hair can frizz up leaving us looking like one of those poodles in a dog show. This isn’t the best situation when we are headed out for a date or to a special function.

The truth is, high humidity can have a more serious effect on your body than just your hair. When the humidity is high you could suffer from heat stroke to an overgrowth of mold in your home. This is why, some folks who live in areas of the world that have higher than average humidity levels invest in a dehumidifier. Not only can it save you some annoying dust mite infestations, a device like this can do wonders for you hair too!

 

Why Does It Frizz

Before we get to the how, why don’t we cover the why. Scientifically, when hair comes in contact with the moisture, hydrogen bonds in your hair are formed between the molecules of water and the proteins in your hair. This will cause your hair to frizz.

Of course, why it happens isn’t as important to us and to the how to get rid of it or how to prevent it in the first place. We are all about prevention on Fashion and Style Police so we would like to start there.

 

No Hands Ma!

One of the worst things you can do when you are afraid of your hair getting frizzy is to keep touching it. The more interaction your hands have with your wet hair the more likely it will turn into a big mess. No matter how tempted you might be do your best to keep your hands off of you hair.

 

Dehumidify

As we mentioned earlier, a dehumidifier could do a great deal for the humidity in your home. Unfortunately, this help won’t reach outside the walls of your home, yet, once the frizz is tamed in your home, it will be much easier to handle when you head out for the night.

 

Beauty Products

If you have curly hair and live in an environment that boasts high humidity then you are very familiar with the fact that there are tons of products on the market that climate to combat the frizz the moment you get out of the shower. They can come in a wide array of prices and forms.

There are serums, foams, and gels that can help you keep the frizz at bay. Other ways you can use beauty products to prevent a frizzy head is to use a shampoo that has an anti frizz formula. This can battle the problem while you are in the shower.

Since we mentioned the shampoo, it is important to mention that keeping your hair well conditioned will do a great deal to help fight the frizz before it even sets in. Find a conditioner that is highly rated when it comes to preventing frizz and go from there.

Natural Remedies

While we love the beauty store, there is no denying that sometimes, the best remedy is the natural kind. Not only do natural aids tend to be cheaper they don’t add any more chemicals into our world. Let’s take a look at some natural items that claim to settle the frizz.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar

This product can be found at any grocery store for a fraction of what a frizz serum would cost. If you rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar you will find that your hair will not only be free of frizz, it will have a healthy shine as well.

 

Avocado and Olive Oil

If you take one ripe avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil, mash them together, you can create a natural mask for your hair that will rival anything on the shelves of the beauty shop. Just apply it to your hair after washing and let sit for up to an hour. Rinse and then condition so your hair doesn’t smell like guacamole. You’ll find the hydrating qualities of this natural mask to do a world of wonder for your frizz problem.

 

Coconut Oil

Known for its amazing beautifying qualities, coconut oil can also hydrate your hair and prevent frizz. In fact, if you find that your hair is frizzy,  you can use a dab of coconut oil as a finishing product to create a smooth and shiny look.

 

Olive Oil and An Egg

Combine a raw egg with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and smother your hair in it before you wash it. Let it sit for an hour and then wash and rinse like usual. These two natural items are chock full of healthy fats and protein, which are needed to fight frizz.
