Holed up indoors with a summer read, laying out by the beach to work on your tan, or partying the nights away...the stars sure know how you spent your summer! With fall around the corner, it's time to start thinking about your hair reset plan. To help you revive your strands and curate a routine that's perfectly suited to your hair's needs, we've got your personalized hair horoscope. Trust us, damage control just got way easier! Read on to figure out how to get your hair back in shape according to your star sign.
Aries: March 21st - April 19th
We know your taste for adventure and competitive spirit has taken over this summer. Whether you've been playing beach volleyball to show off in front of the hot lifeguard or have been challenging yourself to run a 10K, chances are your hair (much like your sore muscles) is in need of some R&R. We recommend using a clarifying shampoo 1 to 2 times a week to get rid of buildup, sweat, and dry shampoo. This will ensure whatever products you use over top will actually penetrate your strands. Another tip? Swap out that hair tie, or worse, elastic band, for a scrunchie to prevent your hair from snagging and breaking while you get your sweat on! If you're already dealing with breakage around your hairline from wearing your hair in a ponytail, try using some anti-frizz serum to tame those unruly flyaways while your hair recovers.
Taurus: April 20th - May 20th
Those long, unscheduled summer days mean extra time to cook lavish meals and indulge! Chances are, though, your diet hasn't been the healthiest and you've probably been drinking a little more than usual which can dehydrate your hair. For starters, we recommend getting your diet back on track by eating lots of leafy green vegetables, fruit, and healthy fats. These foods are rich in hair-beautifying vitamins that promote a balanced scalp and keep you hydrated. Along with eating a more balanced diet, use a hair mask one to two times a week combined with a hair oil post-style to keep your locks looking shiny and moisturized.
Gemini: May 21st - June 19th
Known to be a bit of a paradox? Summer is known to cause Gemini's to unleash their wild side, whether that means dyeing your hair a bold color or chopping off your bangs at 2 AM. Either way, now that it's back to the routine, it's natural to want to revert back to your normal hairstyle. Whether you're no longer feeling the bold look or just think it's time to bring out the subtler side of your personality, the Gemini in you is probably ready for a new 'do. Once you visit your colorist, we recommend using a color-safe shampoo and a rich, hydrating conditioner to keep your hair soft and hydrated whilst prolonging the life of your color.
Cancer: June 21st - July 22nd
Those long days of summer are Cancer's dream. Finally, you can hang out indoors alone, catch up on reading, listen to your favorite albums on repeat, and best of all, enjoy the people-free quiet! The good news is, all those nights alone have probably meant you've been scheduling in some self-care sessions and pampering yourself with hair masks and long, hot showers. Keep up the good work, girl! Our main tip as the weather starts to cool down, is to try to avoid those scalding hot showers you love so much as they can be really drying on the hair. Instead, stick to short, lukewarm showers and blast your strands with cold water at the end to help lock in moisture. A good anti-frizz serum is also your best friend in the fall since your affinity to all things cozy likely means you'll be sporting lots of knit hats and static-causing berets.
Leo: July 23rd - August 22nd
Leo's love the spotlight, so it's natural that summertime for you means partying at music festivals or doing anything that puts you in the middle of the action! Of course, being the center of attention is no easy task, you've got to look the part which means lots of heat styling your hair to achieve those seemingly effortless, festival, beach waves. To get your hair back in shape, try to put down the hot tools and opt to air dry your hair wherever possible. We also recommend using a heat protectant whenever you do heat style your hair to prevent frizz and keep the damage to a minimum. Did you know you can also air dry your hair extensions? Using hair extensions is also a great way to add that extra something to your hair for a festival or party without having to heat style or color your own hair.
Virgo: August 23rd - September 22nd
As a compulsive organizer and a neat-freak, a new season is always an excuse to reorganize your home. While you're dusting off those window ledges and cleaning our your closet, don't forget to go through that stash of hair products you've been hoarding and reassess your hair's needs. Chances are, what you may have been using four years ago may not be very effective anymore, particularly if you've changed up your hair color or preferred style. Along with cleaning our your bathroom drawers, we suggest sticking to products that are clean (sulfate-free and alcohol-free) and incorporating a more natural approach when it comes to buying new hair.
Libra: September 23rd - October 22nd
Infamous for their non-committal approach to life, Libra's are always weighing the odds. Perhaps you've spent the summertime abroad, traveling through Europe, or maybe you stayed local, finding adventure through the world of dating apps. Either way, all that air travel and pre-date prep has probably left its mark on your hair so take it from us and at least commit to a good hair routine. Find a shampoo, conditioner, hair product, and mask that accord with your hair type and stick to it for at least 3 months before switching things up. Sometimes a good thing takes time to work it's magic! So whether you're about to write someone off after a mediocre first date or just scouring the aisles for the latest hair product, remember, there's beauty in routine.
Scorpio: October 23rd - November 21st
Bold and introspective, you like your hair to match your personality. Chances are you took the warm summer weather as the perfect opportunity to change up your 'do, but now that fall is back in session, you may want to add some product to your wash and go hairstyle. A texturizing spray and styling pomade are all you need to help add some hold and movement to your hair. Plus, it'll help you get through that awkward in-between phase (if you're trying to grow your hair out, that is!).
Sagittarius: November 22nd - December 21st
You're the queen of wanderlust! Desert safari to sledding in the Arctic, whatever, whenever, you're there. Keep in mind that these climate fluctuations take their toll, not to mention all that airplane travel. Revive your strands this fall by packing on the hydration: a moisturizing shampoo, conditioning mask, and hair oil will ensure your hair feels restored and silky smooth in no time.
Capricorn: December 22nd - January 19th
Your friends know you as a social butterfly and they sure are right! You spent the summer socializing with friends on patios and posing for drool-worthy Insta pics, which means hair care (and self-care, for that matter) was likely on the back burner. Keep your hair looking amazing as the cold weather hits by taking the time to stay in and pamper yourself. An overnight hair mask is the perfect way to pack on hydration without missing out on any time with friends!
Aquarius: January 20th - February 18th
You tend to live life on the fly, doing whatever you please in the moment...but not all those impulsive hair decisions may have been the right ones. If you chopped your hair on a whim or regret getting a drastic style that you no longer like, hair extensions are the answer. We recommend Luxy Hair Halo extensions since they are fast and easy to apply, so you can be ready at a moment's notice.
Pisces: February 19th - March 20th
Whimsical and reflective, you were the kid that always got in trouble for daydreaming during class. Your affinity for natural, beachy waves are ideal for summer but you might find your hair succumbing to frizz as the fall rolls in. To keep the flyaways to a minimum, we recommend using an anti-frizz serum. It's also a good idea to sleep on a silk pillowcase since we know you're happiest when you're laying in bed, dreaming away.
