If you’re one of the lucky girls with curls, you understand that with the beauty of curls come several styling challenges. Summer has come to an end, and fall can be the best time for your curls to shine. Here are some concerns and their solutions to help the seasonal transition and revive summer weary locks:

1. Dry, Itchy Scalp
Season changes take a toll on scalp and hair, causing excessive dryness. To combat this, choose products that don’t sit on the scalp, but rather sink in to help condition. Avoid products with high alcohol content, as well, since this can cause the scalp to become dry and flaky. Choose a rich, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to treat both the scalp and dry hair strands.
2. Lifeless Curls
Curly hair tends to be dryer by nature and tends to need more moisture in the cooler seasons. If your hydrating product does not penetrate the hair properly, the product will sit on hair strands, suppressing the curl. Invest in a quality leave-in conditioner for optimal moisture.
3. Dry, Damaged or Split Ends
With all the stress of putting hair into ponytails and the dry summer, hair ends can become damaged or split due to stress. The best way to combat this is to get a healthy trim and choose products to provide moisture between salon visits. Afterwards, visit the salon to dust the ends of your hair every 6-8 weeks to keep hair healthy.
4. Damaged Curls
Warmer months wreak havoc on curls and can lead to frizziness. A deep conditioning treatment of protein and moisture is just the thing to rebalance hair strands and revive curl formation. A salon visit can provide a deep conditioning treatment along with a trim, and a quality deep conditioner can be used at home to maintain proper moisture balance. Deep conditioning masks and treatments should be limited to as little as once a week to twice a month to avoid product buildup. Consult with your stylist to find what best suits your needs.
Curly hair by nature is dryer and can be very fragile. The wrong balance of moisture or protein can lead to a plethora of problems that can become very frustrating for any individual. Hair is also most fragile while wet, so gently rake a wide tooth comb through strands after you shower to detangle. Always talk with your stylist to find what products and haircut suit you best to provide easy maintenance and manageability.
