Autumn Hair Care: How To Look After Your Hair This Season

With the sun setting on the summer, it might be time to start thinking about your autumn hair care routine. We know what you’re thinking and yes, you really do need to switch up your routine as the seasons change! In order to keep your hair in the best condition possible, adjustments need to be made. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about figuring out what to do because we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for the perfect autumn hair.

 

Autumn Hair Care

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 1: Amp Up The Moisture

 

There’s nothing like cold air to suck the life out of your hair, making it not only dry, but frizzy too. We all know that the drier your hair is, the more prone to breakage it is, so keeping your hair hydrated is key. One way to do this is to switch to a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for dry hair during the colder months of the year. 

For even more moisture, you could consider adding hair oil into the mix as well. Using hair oil sparingly can work wonders for your hair and lock in moisture. 

There are two ways to go about using oils. For a quick boost, you could add a few drops to the ends of your hair after washing it, or you could take it to the next level. Massaging oil into your scalp, working it through the rest of your hair and leaving it overnight before washing it will give you intensely hydrated hair. There are loads of oils you could turn to: coconut, argan, almond or caster to name but a few. These oils will also target a dry scalp, if that’s something you suffer from.

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 2: Focus On Your Scalp

 

More often than not, we’re so concerned about our hair, we forget about our scalp! As we reach the chillier months of the year, our scalp has a tendency to become dry and irritated. This is due to a number of factors but the cold weather is most likely to be the main culprit. A change in diet and chronic conditions like eczema may also be to blame. If you can help it, keeping your scalp hydrated is really beneficial for your hair as a dry scalp can also lead to hair loss.

Oils aren’t the only way to treat your scalp. Clarifying shampoo and scalp scrubs can really work their magic on dandruff. Using these products on a regular basis (at least once a week) can stop dandruff in its tracks and keep your scalp fresh until the first signs of spring. Paying attention to your hairbrush is also important. Using a paddle brush is great for massaging the scalp and will also be gentle on your hair too. If you want to know which brush is best for you, check out one of our latest blog posts to find out more.

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 3: Time For A Haircut?

 

As we mentioned earlier, dry hair is a much more common occurrence in autumn and winter. A mix of central heating and changes in the weather can negatively affect your hair, making it more prone to damage. If your hair is already damaged, it’s only going to make matters worse. It’s best to target things such as split ends when you first see them cropping up.

If left untreated, split ends will work their way up the affected strands of hair until they eventually snap. The only way to treat them is to get rid! Booking an appointment with your hairdresser when you start to see falling leaves is the best way to ensure your tresses won’t end up looking dull and lacklustre.

 

How We Can Help

 

Keeping your hair in tip-top shape is one thing but sometimes, you just fancy a bit of a change. Being able to change your look with ease this autumn gives you the freedom to create whatever style you’d like.

Caring For Your Extensions

Caring For Your Extensions

Buying hair extensions isn’t the cheapest thing to do, which is why it’s important to take care of them to give them the longest lifespan possible. Much like if you were to buy a new pair of trainers or handbag, looking after these products is going to benefit you (and your pocket) in the long run. 

 

Extensions Care

Why Is Caring For Your Extensions Important?

 

Extensions aren’t attached to your scalp, so they don’t receive constant nutrients and oil deposits in the same way as your hair does. They are chemically processed, which means they are drier and slightly coarser than your natural hair. Due to this, you’ll want to use ingredients that will replenish and add moisture to your hairpieces. 

 

Which Ingredients Should I Avoid?

 

Products that contain sulfates, parabens, bleach and short-chain alcohols can damage hair extensions. These ingredients can cause your extensions to dry out! They may also be listed under names such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), propyl and isopropyl. Avoid using products that contain these substances. 

 

Which Ingredients Will Benefit My Extensions?

 

When choosing products for your extensions you should be looking out for those that contain long-chain fatty alcohols. Products featuring coconut oil or palm oil will benefit you as they’ll draw moisture into the hair and add a smooth, slippery texture to help with detangling. Generally, these ingredients are found in conditioners and deep conditioning treatments. 

Aim for Morrocan oil, argan oil or castor oil-based products. These will help to hydrate and moisten your hairpieces. 

 

How Should I Wash My Extensions?

 

When it comes to washing your extensions it is important to remember that they don’t receive the same oils and nutrients as your natural hair, therefore, it’s not necessary to wash them as often as you would your own hair. 

A good rule of thumb is to wash them every 30 days or when they become difficult to style as this means there’s a build-up of product!

Here are some steps to follow when washing your Flip-In Wefts

 

  • Brush your extensions and rid them of any tangles.
  • Shampoo each weft individually – this will help prevent tangling.
  • Condition each weft individually – leave the products to soak in for around 10 minutes.
  • Apply a deep conditioner – leave this in overnight for the best results.
  • Rinse hair thoroughly – ensure there’s no slippery texture to the hair. 
  • Rinse under cold water – this will close the cuticles ensuring the moisture stays in the hair.
  • Air-dry your extensions – using heat will create frizz and could potentially damage the hair.

A Whistle-Stop Tour Of The Last 100 Years Of Hair Trends

A lot has happened in the last 100 years, times have changed and so has hair! Imagine telling a flapper girl a century ago that there would eventually be a device small enough to put into your handbag (depending on the size of your bag, of course) that could curl or straighten your hair in a matter of seconds? She’d need a lie-down!

Why don’t you take a break too? Grab a cuppa and get ready to learn about the last 100 years of hair trends

 

1920s – The Roaring Twenties

 

The roaring 20s were famous for their extravagance and rebellion! Back then, anyone who dared to call themselves a fashionable young woman wouldn’t be seen dead without a bob! This short, angular style was first met by a lot of resistance but as with most things, it was soon welcomed into the fold.

It was easy to maintain and women adored feeling liberated after chopping off their locks! If you wanted to transform your look in the 1920s, you could curl your hair using scraps of material to create tight, springy curls. Are you now thinking about how you could brush up on your heat-free styling knowledge? We’ve got you covered, check out our blog post from March!

 

1960s – The Swinging Sixties

 

Fast-forward forty years and the world had changed even more! We’d been through another World War and things were relatively normal once more. A hip new band from Liverpool called The Beatles were on the scene and absolutely everyone was trying to put together the biggest beehive possible.

Created by Margaret Vinci Held in 1960, the beehive became the most popular hairstyle of the decade and was worn by everyone, from Aretha Franklin to Audrey Hepburn. Towering hair was now the popular style and women around the world were back-combing and hair-spraying more than ever. If your hair wasn’t as high as possible in the 60s, it may have been wavy and flowing instead. Hippies were also a common sight at the time and their carefree attitude extended to their hair – they were more concerned with music than worrying about hairspray!

 

1970s – Fighting Crime And Keeping Time

 

Peace and love weren’t the words on everyone’s lips anymore but hair trends are still a very big deal. Many women were trying to recreate American actress Farrah Fawcett’s feathered hair after her rise to stardom following the television series ‘Charlie’s Angels’. Others were keeping their hair long and straight, a style popularised by Cher – who still rocks that look today! Both of these styles have stood the test of time, proving that most looks make their way back into the mainstream after a few decades away.

1990s – You Gotta Get With My Friends

 

Skip the big, permed hair trends of the 1980s and you’ll find The Spice Girls at the top of their game a decade later. After watching Friends, everybody wanted ‘The Rachel’ and Jennifer Aniston’s iconic hairstyle soon became one of the most famous in history! Almost twenty years on, we’re still talking about it, so it seems like Jen’s stylist certainly did something right.

 

Hair Trends

The Present Day

 

As you’re probably aware, a lot has gone down in the 21st century, and we’re only 21 years in! Ross and Rachel finally decided if they were on or off and Cher is still as iconic as ever. We’ve moved on from butterfly clips and roll-on hair glitter to barrel wavers and air stylers but there’s one thing we all know – we can do anything we want to our hair.

Flip-In Hair can help you make any style you want a reality – whether it’s adding a flash of colour or simply creating the length and volume you desire.

Our wired extensions don’t require clips, glue or weaving so you can put them in and take them out in no time, allowing you to change your look even if you change your mind. Don’t forget about our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible!

The Secret to Long, Luscious Hair

Lockdown is slowly coming to an end and you might be thinking about giving your hair some TLC, whether you want to grow it out, restyle it or get extensions. Long hair is a timeless option that is guaranteed to have you looking glamorous. Read on and we’ll give you all the tips to keeping your hair looking lovely and long! 

Long hair can come with many ups and downs. We all love it, but we also have those days where we just wish it would do what we wanted. Sometimes, we get bored of having the same style of hair every day, and other times we get frustrated at how often it gets in the way. Long hair really is a labour of love – though, for the majority of us, the love tends to outweigh the labour! 

This is when Flip-In Hair Extensions shine. With Flip-In you can get the look you want without the hassle you’ve become accustomed to. All of our extensions take less than a minute to fit and literally seconds to remove, so whether you want to switch up styles on the go, or just add a bit of variety to your look – choose Flip-In and try our brilliant bespoke hair extensions today! 

 

Don’t Overwash It

It might sound silly, but overwashing your hair can have negative implications on its overall hygiene. If you overdo it in the shower then you are in danger of drying out your locks and tricking your body into thinking it needs to replace all those natural oils that protect your hair on the regular. If this happens, your hair can go into overdrive and produce more oils than necessary, resulting in what we all try to avoid: the dreaded greasiness. 

Washing too frequently can also dull the colour of your hair, making it look less shiny and more frizzy! 

 

Heat Protection

Heat protection, or protectant, is a product that you can apply to your hair, or hair extensions, that allows you to style it to your heart’s content without worrying about causing it any damage.  

It is important to point out that whilst all heat protection products reduce the risk of damage, there is no way to prevent this completely, meaning that you still have to practice safely treating and styling your hair. 

To use a heat protectant, simply apply it to damp or dry hair before using a hairdryer, straightener or any other appliance.

 

Flip-In Extensions

If you are on the hunt for professional hair extensions, then you’ve found what you’re looking for at Flip-In Hair. All of our hair extensions have no clips, no glue and no weaving, allowing you to get the long hair and the style that you have always wanted.

New Hair 2020 Hair Extensions

What’s coming in 2020?

Upcoming hair trends of 2020 – what you need to know.

Keeping an eye on the upcoming trends can be difficult. Especially when one year calls for pixie cuts and the next year demands long beach waves! Luckily for you, we’ve gathered all the data for you and narrowed it down to the top three predicted cuts and styles of 2020!

This year, retro is back on all fronts! With loads of eras making an appearance in 2020, we’ve put together a what’s what of the top styles so you can recreate the look with our Flip-In Hair products!

The Shag

This textured cut can be worn long or short! Often giving off a rocky vibe, this 70s-influenced haircut gave Miley Cyrus the inspiration for her bold new look. By getting your hairdresser to use our extensions to lengthen your look, you’ll have long, shaggy locks that Stevie Nicks herself would be in awe of! For an extra edge, add in a Flip-In Flash for a burst of colour!

Gogo dancing into 2020

With celebrities such as Sarah Hyland and Camilla Cabello already sporting the 1960s style at the end of 2019, it’s no surprise it’s making a comeback in 2020. The big and bouncy 60s ‘do is easily achieved with Flip-In Hair Extensions! By adding extra volume, they can increase the bounce in your new look! Pair with some big lashes and baby pink lips for the full 60s look!

Brow-brushing bangs

This may not seem like a huge new trend as fringes are in and out and back in again before you’ve had a chance to grow it out! But, as with all things old, those soft fringes are back in. Think Joni Mitchell circa the 1970s, or for a modern muse, Florence Welch. Those soft, sweepy fringes are often paired with long straight locks, inspired by the hippy movement of the 60s, with a 70s twist. With our Flip-In Hair Extensions, you can get the lustrous lengths you need to pair with your new sweepy, 70s fringe for your 2020 look.
