Do Use Scalp Treatments
"The scalp's connection to hair is overlooked, as it's truly the place where the health of hair begins," says Bridgette Hill, an expert stylist at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. As the seasons begin to change, skin and scalp can become unbalanced and unpredictable. To help correct this process, Hill recommends using scalp pre-treatments, like Paul Labrecque Repair Treatment Restorative Hair & Scalp Therapy, $58, at home or in between salon visits.

Don't Shampoo Daily
"Over-shampooing can be drying for the hair during cooler weather days," says Elly Torres, owner and lead stylist of Salon Ascend. If your hair is not overly oily, she recommends skipping the shampoo step and rinsing the hair with lukewarm water, conditioning and rinsing the conditioner with cool water instead.

Torres says this is especially crucial for textured and curly hair types as the cooler weather brings a different type of dryness than the "fun in the sun" summer days. "This type of dryness from overly cold temperatures (and the ruffling of hats and high collars) can cause excess fly-aways, tangles and frizz," she says. "It is crucial to moisturize on a regular basis through the fall months."
