Why Natural Hair Loves Fall

The sky has dimmed to a muted and icy blue, the wind blows a little harder, the air’s a lot more crisp and chilly. Soon the leaves will turn. It’s fall, the season for honeycrisp apples and pumpkin spice everything. For me, it’s also the season of happy, bouncy, yasssss-look-at-these-ringlets hair. I had no idea what awaited me when I left hot, humid weather behind. I traded dewy skin and frizzy hair for dry skin and softer, smoother coils. Why does my natural hair love fall? Why might yours? Let me break it down!

Hair butters and oils and deep conditioners to the rescue! In the fall, my hair really adores and absorbs all my heavier hair products. Think shea butter based creams and heavy oil blends like castor oil or olive oil. The products I use at this time of year tend to be deeply nurturing.
