As we approach winter, the air is going to get drier and drier. Under those wool scarves and hoodies can lie some seriously dry hair that needs some revitalisation. Autumn is the perfect time to start paying attention to the moisture level in your hair. We suggest applying a hair mask at least once a week to give your hair the boost it needs. Look for masks that contain more natural ingredients and be sure to avoid any products containing sulfates as they can have the opposite effect and strip your hair of all it's natural oils needed to keep it healthy.
Healthy hair comes from within. Autumn is a great time to start thinking about eating healthy again. Vitamin-rich foods will result in stronger locks. Vitamin C, zinc and biotin help hair follicles to grow. We love this ultimate winter warmer Green Goddess Immune Boosting Soup, super high in vitamin C and zinc to help hair follicles to grow.
Of course, these vitamins and minerals are also present in GROW by Hair Gain which will help you to keep your locks glowing from within too!
Swapping out your cotton pillowcase for a silk alternative has been described as 'beauty sleep's secret weapon'. Not only have silk pillows built a reputation for maintaining gorgeous skin (and for my fellow ugly sleepers, the end of waking up to a creased face), but they do absolute wonders for the hair; from increasing the life span of your blow dry, to reducing frizziness. We absolutely love the range of silk pillowcases by Slip, which claim anti ageing, anti sleep crease and anti bed hair qualities!
We asked the incredible Pete Burkill, our favourite professional hair stylist, his thoughts on how often to get a trim to maintain healthy hair:
"I recommend a trim every 8 weeks, most people who are wanting to grow their hair should keep the ends strong to avoid breaking and splitting, so regular trims are vital to keeping hair long and healthy. Cutting the hair once a year is a false economy as we then have to cut a years worth of damage off...little and often wins the race!"
