Fall is not only a great time to re-evaluate and refresh your wardrobe, but also a great time to switch up your hair care routine. Hair trends are heavily influenced by the season's runway looks, and for fall 2014 it is all about sleek, smooth locks! Here are four different ways to rock the sleek look:
1. The "Lob":
A long bob with or without bangs like Rose Bryne is big this season. I love the versatility of this length.
2. Braids, braids and more braids:
Who knew that there were a million and one ways to braid your hair? Thanks Pinterest! More power to you if you can master the fine art of intricate braiding. I am not one of those people, so this simple and sleek braid suits me best.
3. The center part:
Smooth hair with a center part is back in a big way. Sometimes a simple shift in where you part your hair is all the change you need!
4. The low ponytail:
A low pony, hitting at a point center to your ears or lower, is super sophisticated and great for a night out. To disguise your hairband, wrap a piece of hair around it and secure with bobby pins.
Get the look:
A smooth sleek base is all that is needed to achieve any of these fall hair trends. Start in the shower by choosing products specifically formulated to produce silky results. I have recently been using the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection and have seen a noticeable improvement in the silkiness of my hair. In the shower I use the shampoo and conditioner, which has an amazing warm amber scent that I just love!
Right before I blow dry I apply a small amount of the Pure Care Dry Oil with a blend of African Macadamia Oil and coconut oil to the palm of my hand and work it through concentrating on the ends. This has helped calm my frizz way down. I also use a small amount on dry hair during the day anytime I need to tame a few flyaways.
These products are formulated for all hair types, and delivers 5x silkier hair after just one wash. The best part is they do not make your hair seem greasy or weigh your hair down one bit!
You can find these products at your local mass food, or drug retailers nationwide (gotta love drugstore beauty!). I am pretty sure once you try them you will fall in love like I have. In fact, Dove is currently running a "Dove Silky Hair Dare" promotion, in which you can try out the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil risk free from now until December 31, 2014. If you are not completely satisfied with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil System, Dove will refund your purchase (from 9/21-12/31). Visit hairmoneyback.com for details.
