Less is more

Washing your hair less will leave naturally nourishing oils behind. Washing once every 2-3 days is enough. Adam says “Using a shampoo and conditioner like Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Wash Shampoo and Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Care Conditioner will help weatherproof your hair by building up moisture.” On in-between days, dry shampoo is your best friend. Radiance Revealing Invisible Dry Shampoo will clean the roots and refresh the lengths.


Fight The Frizz

The changeable weather in autumn is a recipe for a frizzy hair nightmare. (The struggle is real.) Luckily, Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm can work miracles. Apply this primer before styling and just watch the magic happen. Lab testing proves it will keep locks frizz-free for up to 72 hours. Add a few drops of Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair or Smoothed, Sealed and Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil for Fine Hair to wet hair before drying. It will leave your strands smoother than a Bublé ballad. You could also try a gentle mist of Surprisingly Strong Extra Hold Hairspray, it calms frizz and protects your finished style.


Autumn Treats

Autumn is an excellent time to give your hair a real treat. So pop on your loungewear, cosy up and give your hair some love. The changing weather, central heating and extra blow drying can cause your hair to lose moisture. Need a superhero saviour? Try using a regular treatment or mask. (At least weekly or more often if you need it.) Apply Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery to dry hair, and it works its magic while you get some shut-eye. Or rescue hair with Totally TLC Hydrating Mask. This rescue remedy works in just a few minutes, it’s ultra lightweight and will leave your hair super soft and shiny.


Heavenly Hair Oil

Oils help to keep hair healthy and glossy. Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Treatment Oil+ boasts a trio of oils that restores moisture and elasticity to hair, and it can also help encourage a healthy scalp. Paul says ‘Applying treatment oil to the scalp will help to combat dryness. Apply the oil to dry hair and scalp. Use a paddle brush to stroke both the hair and scalp around 100 times to gently exfoliate.”


Colour up

Autumn is a popular time to change up your hair colour. A new shade can give your hair a real boost and a fresh new look. Autumn hues like auburn or caramel throughout the hair add warmth. Balayage with rose gold tones or peachy sorbets are on trend for autumn. You can start with baby steps, some toners wash out within a month. Feeling brave?

Alice bands are back in a big way and keep hair away from your face. Try the jewelled versions if you’re craving something ‘extra’. A hat can be a good way protect the hair, but to avoid the dreaded ‘hat hair’ carry Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray with you for an instant root boost.
