Yes, it’s true, there’s no denying it… Summer is not only winding down, it’s fully wound and that’s right folks, fall is officially here! As the leaves turn from green to golden and all the lattes brew pumpkin spice, it’s time to say goodbye to the long humid summer days and hello to those fresh crisp fall mornings. It’s time to cash in the bleached blonde looks of summer for the warm autumn tones of fall.
Change in Seasons Means a Change in Your Hair Care
Before you dive directly into your first color treatment of the season you may want to consider what mother nature has in store for you and how that might affect the appearance and feel of your hair and scalp. The change of season prompts big changes in both weather and style which can present pros and cons for your tresses.
Fall also means that everyone’s favorite ghoulish holiday is around the corner! Have you planned out your Halloween hair yet?? If not, keep reading for some amazing suggestions and how to keep your hair ready for this spooky day. Now…back to fall.
Protect & Repair Your Hair This Fall
This fall’s color trends provide ample looks for anyone looking to go big for Halloween or simply looking to ditch their summer color for a fresh autumn look or both! A strong seasonal hair care routine can ensure your hair maintains a healthy shine no matter how many color changes you may have lined up this fall.
Seasonal change breathes new life into our every day and can also bring a slew of new challenges. Dry cold rainy/snowy weather and other environmental hazards like free radicals and mold can wreak havoc on your skin and hair creating a flaky, dry brittle feel and appearance. Combine those hazards with daily moisture-zapping blow dryers, hot styling tools, and the stress of added colors and lighteners – you’re on a fast track to static, frizzy, straw-like strands, and an itchy scalp!
As the cool weather has you reaching for your favorite hoodie, that’s your indicator to protect your scalp and hair by also reaching for a pH-Plex deep conditioning mask. Mix pH-Plex 1 Protect and pH-Plex 2 Repair together to create a high-performance deep conditioning mask that works to repair damage and protect against styling and environmental stressors. Apply the mask directly to the scalp and work into damp hair, root to tip, before shampooing as normal.
Changes in temperature can have big effects on your hair and skin but by using pH-Plex you can reset your natural pH balance and have gorgeous radiant hair no matter the weather.
Change Your Hair, Change Your Mood, Feel Like Your Best Self
Now that you’ve got a solid strategy to guard against environmental factors it’s time to dig into your new color! As fall styles continue to roll out we are seeing everything from bright playful yellows, oranges, and pinks to more sophisticated golden blacks, cool silvers, and neutral blondes. So many possibilities! You can even go with the ever classic brunette to blonde (bronde), and deep reds – think crisp apple cider and caramel highlights.
All Hallow’s Eve is Coming…
Now…back to Halloween – it’s right around the corner!
Ready to rock that new rainbow unicorn hair? Halloween is THE perfect excuse to go big and enjoy all that color long after Halloween is over. Worried about over-stressing your locks with all that color and style? Don’t be, we have you covered.
Protect Your Hair When Using Permanent, Semi-Permanent or Temporary Color with pH Plex
When coloring your hair with permanent color, pH Plex 1 Protect is mixed directly in with the color and applied to your hair as you normally would apply color (*Pro tip! Salon goers – give pH Plex to your stylist to mix into your color before application!) to give your hair a layer of protection while the color works its magic. Once your color is set and rinsed out, apply Step 2 – pH Plex Repair as a post-color routine, to repair any damage and re-balance the pH of your scalp and hair to avoid dry-out.
When using Semi-Permanent or Temporary Color you would use pH Plex as a deep repair conditioner or mask for your hair. Since they do not contain peroxide and do not penetrate the hair follicle, you would not need to add pH Plex to the hair color. You would instead follow the instructions here for the Single Step Deep Repair Treatment to keep your hair strong and healthy while using these types of hair dyes.
Want to keep that color on lock longer and your hair healthy at the same time? Use pH Plex 3 Stabilize once a week to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy and revitalized!
Embrace Your Halloween Hair
Perhaps you’re testing your inner villain this year and turning up the drama with a solid black and white Cruella Deville ‘do, but you’re only looking for a temporary change? Not a problem!
Again, work pH Plex into the temporary color before application (See How to Use for detailed instructions) and watch in awe as your hair transforms to complete your look! When the night is over and it’s time to wash all the Cruella out of your hair, follow up your regular routine with a pH Plex deep conditioning mask to keep your hair pH balanced, healthy, and glowing.
Honestly, the best part about Halloween is that it gives everyone full permission to go big or go home!
The worst part is what is left of your hair after all the over-coloring, intense styling, and stress that is needed to get into character. Not to worry, our 1,2,3 system has your back. Whether you choose to do something totally new and totally permanent or just want a temporary change, pH Plex is the best thing you can add to your Halloween hair care routine this year. pH Plex provides the protection you need to keep your hair looking seriously on point no matter what look you’re going for.
So don’t let this Halloween season leave you looking like an extra from the latest zombie movie! Use pH Plex Protect and Repair to rock your look before and after Halloween.
