Tips to Get Your Hair in Shape for Fall

“Pumpkin Spice and everything nice”. Yes, we are THAT excited for fall.

autumn leaves, very shallow focus

There are many things we love about summer. The warm weather, the bright sun, swimming, and just staying outside. Although it is quite lovely, by the time fall comes back around, our hair is desperate for some TLC. There are so many reasons our hair can become dry and damaged in the summer from highlights, perms, straightening treatments, to chlorine from pools and the list goes on.

Fall is the perfect time of year to take a break from damage caused by all of the elements of Summer. Today, we are going to give you some Fall tips on getting your hair back into shape!

1. Make the first step (and maybe even the most important) by going to your hairdresser and getting off any split ends. When you have split ends, you are not helping your hair by not getting it trimmed. Split ends travel up the hair shaft, and end up getting worse and worse. There is no possible way to get rid of split ends other than cutting them. 

2. Use a clarifying shampoo once a month to remove buildup from hard water, hairspray, medications, and other hair products. Be careful not to use a clarifying shampoo too much, though! Overuse can result in drying out your hair and stripping your hair color.

3. Deep condition your hair once a week. Conditioning your hair with a deep treatment helps a variety of problems the summer sun can present to your hair. Deep conditioning promotes elasticity in your hair, prevents damage, promotes moisture, and adds shine and luster. Our favorite deep conditioner for not only our hair, but for Queen C Hair Extensions is….. Joico Luster Lock!!!! You can buy it here

4. Massage it! A  10 to 15 minute massage will increase the blood circulation in your scalp, speeding up new growth and will give you healthier hair in the long run, getting it ready for next summer!

How To: Side Wrap Braid

While we hate to admit it, braids can get either extremely boring, or look too hard to even attempt. If your braiding skills consist of a simple three-strand braid, it’s time to step up your braid game! This Side Wrap Braid is not only easy to do, but it is perfect for any look whether you are going to work, going for a night out with girlfriends, or is even a great hairstyle to wear to a holiday party since Christmas is coming up.


1. Curl your hair with a 3/4 inch or 1 inch curling iron by wrapping your hair in sections around the barrel.

2. Spray a volumizing spray all over  for fullness and at the roots. Tease your hair with a teasing comb and lightly lift you roots with the tail of the comb.

3. Gently brush out curls to create soft waves. Spray a lightweight hairspray over your hair.

4. Start an inverted or “inside out” braid from the side of your hair part and braid downward until you reach the nape of your neck.

5. Tie the hair at the back of your neck with a clear elastic band. Then, tuck any loose hair underneath and secure it with a hair pin. This creates a braid on one side of your head while still maintaining volume on the other.

6. Spread the pleats of your braid out to creat a thicker look, then spray your new style with hairspray once more.

7. Tease the remaining hair in sections and gently brush it out to get more volume.

    And you’re done!
