Tackle damaged hair head on this fall with a non-nonsense approach to hair health.

Whether you colour your hair or use heated styling tools, hair is vulnerable to its environment and upkeep.

So, why not take not of these top tips for banishing damaged and weather-worn locks.

Shampoo less:
Washing your hair too frequently can strip it of its essential oils. Oils prevent further dryness and can help to make your strands happy again. If you are worried about your hair becoming greasy in between shampoo sessions, use dry shampoo.

Add moisture:
After washing your hair, reach for an ultra-hydrating conditioner. Look out for products— like Kérastase Masque Oléo-Relax—that are packed with natural goodies, like palm oil or murumuru butter, steering clear of anything that has silicone in its formulation. Twice a week, apply the mask and leave it on for a full hour, using a plastic shower cap to let it really penetrate strands.

Protect from heat:
The worst thing you can do to further dry out your hair is to use heat styling tools like straighteners and curling irons on strands that are still damp.

Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep boasts hydrolyzed wheat protein to protect against surface damage, and a blend of organic aloe, maize, and guar bean to leave locks looking smooth and healthy.

Add shine:
Nobody craves dull hair so look out for products that will give your hair the luxe shine make-over it deserves. L’Oréal Professionnel’s Mythic Nourishing Oil, containing beneficial and shine-inducing avocado oil and protective antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil is a good option. Glossy locks await.
