How To Protect & Grow Natural & Relaxed Hair: Stylist Gives 5 Expert Tips For Fall Styling & Maintenance

Ladies, as your prepare to make the shift from the carefree hair days of summer to the more structured styles for fall, consider a few hair care tips from a pro.

Global Artistic Educator Cyd Charisse of Atti2des 2 Hair & Nail Salon in Maryland recently sat with us and dished on the top tips she has for both relaxed and natural hair. These tips will help women of all textures and types get their best fall tresses!  

Feed Your Hair From The Inside Out. "A healthy lifestyle, nutritious diet, exercise and drinking water are excellent ways of producing healthy hair and a balanced lifestyle year round," Charisse stressed.

Pick the Right Products. Healthy gorgeous hair, whether it's relaxed or natural are a result of using healthy products and styling techniques.

"My exclusive product line is Design Essentials," Charisse explained. "Design Essentials products provides moisturizing shampoos, deep conditioners, oils and treatments that guarantees your hair to shine, strengthen and give bounce and elasticity to your hair."

Pillow Protection. Charisse suggests to use a silk or satin pillowcase as well as a scarf to keep your hair from drying and breaking off while you sleep.

Get Steamy. "Steaming increases blood flow into the scalp, which can lead to increased hair growth," the hair care expert told us.

"If your hair is dry and dull, try a blend of Stimulations Super Moisturizing Conditioner ($11), Hydrience Argan Moisturizing Creme ($10) and Hydrience Argan Moisture Replenishing Mist ($18). This custom blend combination adds moisture, stimulates the scalp and adds shine to the hair."

Style Hair Right. The right cut makes transitioning from summer to fall hair painless. "Shaping, trims and dusting ends in my opinion are as needed."

"When cutting wet, I protect the hair with a light mist of the Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner ($10). It protects the hair and avoid the ends of the hair from splitting. It is also an awesome thermal protective when air forming the hair."
