Our top 5 tips for healthy locks this Autumn

Autumn weather is harsh on all hair textures and types especially in Canberra. One day it’s dry and hot and the next it’s biting cold, windy and wet. Just like skin, hair needs protection from the elements to remain  healthy.

Hydration is key:

Always important no matter the season is good hydration for our hair, skin and general well being. We recommend heaps of H2O accompanied by hydrating hair products to add back moisture and hydration lost from cold winds, overheated offices and dry air.

Some of our favourite hydration boosts:

O&M Know Knott, designed to detangle and hydrate, just spray on towel dried hair – it’s the perfect post shower product for blow-dried or air-dried hair to add in nourishment.

Davines All in One Milk, this cult favourite is a multi-function lightweight leave-in spray treatment that softens, detangles, controls frizz and protects the hair from heat.

Switch your water up!

Good haircare starts with the water you’re using. Harsh water can dry out the hair and even strip colours. We are loving our Filtered Beauty filters which help eliminate hidden nasties from your shower water. It will helps improve your hair, skin and health by removing toxins which are present in your shower water.

Treat yourself:

The transition from the heat of summer to the chill of Autumn can leave our hair feeling dry, dull, and lifeless.

Hair masks are quick and easy to use and are apart of our weekly routine all year round but are especially important in throughout Autumn and into Winter when hair is dry and lacklustre.

We love:

Davines Wake Up Circle: Invigorating mask that gives energy and volume to dull hair and restores tone and hydration to the scalp. Ideal recovery treatment after exposure to extreme atmospheric conditions.

Davines Nourishing pack: Restructuring mask for dry hair. Thanks to the vegetal keratin it nourishes from roots to ends by strengthening the fibers and protecting it. The hair is left soft and full-bodied.

Original Mineral 7 Day Miracle: An intense moisture masque for damaged hair. Seven Day Miracle will leave all hair types deeply hydrated with the O&M Signature Oil Blend of Organic Coconut Oil and Macadamia Oil. Convert hair to frizz-free, soft and silky smooth.


Trimming your hair every four to eight weeks is a good way to maintain hair health and keep your locks looking fresh. Regular trims reduce the chance of developing dry, split ends and keep your hair easy to manage and style.

Dry your hair:

Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage than dry hair.

One of our top hair health tips no matter the season is to dry your hair before bed or leaving the house. Wet hair is fragile, more susceptible to damage or fraying and can also accumulate and attract bacteria if slept on all night.

It’s best to blow dry your hair before leaving the house and add a serum or oil like Davines Oi Oil post blow-dry to seal the cuticle and add extra nourishment. If you can’t commit to a full blow-dry we recommend at least drying your roots.
