Shampooing in the Fall and Winter

By November 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Now that fall has officially set in, you may want to rethink your hair care routine if you haven't already. Some of the products you use might change; for example, a heavier cream may be necessary now instead of a lightweight oil. With the absence of high humidity, that flat iron may see more use.

Another area that could change is in the frequency of shampoos. During the summer, many of us may either shampoo or at least wet-and-go more often, due to swimming and the sweating that comes from being outdoors in such hot weather.

So what's a good shampoo routine for fall and winter? It's really no different than for any other time of year, as there's a healthy minimum for cleansing black hair that leaves it less prone to dryness.

Look for ultra-hydrating formulas and/or natural products that are as gentle as can be on your tresses and you'll make it through fall and winter just fine.

Some suggestions:
