Autumn hair help
It’s time to face the sad truth, summer has gone and autumn is here, and with it comes a whole host of new challenges to your hair. The best way to tackle the seasonal changes and keep your hair in tip-top condition is to be prepared and stock up on autumn essentials – ideal for recovering from the summer damage.
Conditioner, conditioner, conditioner
Your skin may be bronzed and freckled, but the sun isn’t so friendly to your hair. Summer brings about a multitude of grievances to locks – chlorine damage, UV damage and excessive heat. These all dry out the hair, leaving it unmanageable and brittle. For your hair to regain its health and strength, you need a really intense moisturiser, rich in nourishing oils such as coconut and avocado. It’s really important to get a natural conditioner, as more chemicals will only damage your hair further.
Summer can leave your scalp dry, sunburnt and, basically, just a bit grumpy. This delays hair growth, increases breaks and overall makes for a very dry and brittle ‘do. Akin Konizi, creative director for HOB Salons, says that "with the continual change in temperatures and use of central heating, this can leave hair feeling dry and frizzy resulting in an untamed mane". To avoid having a mop the size of Brazil, ease your hair back to its natural contented self with a sensitive shampoo. Plants such as chamomile, calendula, and jasmine soothe inflamed and irritated scalps, which speeds up the summer recovery process, getting your hair back to beautiful in no time!
Stimulate that scalp!
Exchanging the sun, sea and sand for the realities of work, school and bills spells only one thing; stress. Too much anxiety can cause the hair to thin, only made worse by hair treatments bursting with chemicals and parabens. The easiest way to prohibit hair thinning is pre-emption – using a stimulator lotion before the taxing autumn months kick in. Stimulator lotions boost circulation to the scalp - rosemary, lavender and lemon motivate the scalp, which encourages fresh blood supply carrying the essential nutrients to the hair root. This boosts new hair growth, giving you thick, enviable tresses!
Bring back the moisture
Oils are the best hair-repair method around, and the best thing is, they are completely raw and organic! Avocado oil and sweet almond oil are particularly good at replenishing the hair, bringing back all that moisture that the pesky sun sucked out. Left overnight, hair oil does its magic and allows you to wake up in the morning with soft, thick and manageable hair. Come and get me, autumn!

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
