The weather in Maryland is starting to cool down fast, and with these drops in temperature and humidity come changes in our hair, skin, and nails. There are plenty of preventative measures that we can take to lock in our hair’s moisture before the dry cold of winter sets in. Likewise, there are plenty of hair habits that work just fine in the warmer months that will wreak havoc on your strands once winter comes. Check out our list of fall hair care do’s and don’ts to keep your hair looking lush and healthy all winter long.
1. Limit Sun Exposure
People often get more than their fair share of sun during the summer months, but you may want to think twice about leaving your hair exposed when you do. Sun exposure can make hair color fade faster, so folks who just invested in a fancy, trendy dye job should opt for a hat or hair scarf. Hair can also be damaged by UV radiation, causing it to be brittle, frizzy, and dry. A vital summer hair care tip: protect your hair (and skin) by covering up this summer and limiting your time outside during the brightest parts of the day.
