Ensure healthy hair for fall with these professional tips for your tresses 

Summer is sadly fading, and just around the corner are pumpkin spice lattes and sweater weather – the mark of back-to-school. To help kick start the new school year, Vancouver-based AG Hair provides pro tips on the perfect healthy hair regimen for that on-the-go student life…

1. Minimalist natural hair care

Vegan-friendly, plant-based and naturally-derived, what more can a girl ask for? AG’s Natural category is the perfect recipe for healthy hair goals. Add Balance sulfate-free apple cider vinegar shampoo and Boost apple cider vinegar conditioner to your daily shower routine and see the benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV) in action. Organic ACV naturally closes the hair cuticle and gives additional shine, while organic argan oil and aloe vera help further smooth and moisturize. AG’s exclusive blend of rosemary, lavender, lemongrass and clary sage essential oils provide the added benefits of aromatherapy–creating a relaxing in-shower experience after a long school day. (Oh, and did we mention, Balance won the coveted “Best Hair Care” title in BC Living‘s recent Simply Beautiful Awards.)

2. Movie and a mask

We all need a little R&R, especially during finals or the writing of that 10-page essay. And the perfect way to spend a Self-care Sunday is to watch a movie or binge that worthy Netflix show. Before you slide into your couch for the next four hours, get your self-care essentials ready, like AG’s Colour Savour Mask gloss treatment. This lightweight, yet hydrating hair mask is made with AG’s exclusive CARE (Colour And Radiance Enhance) Complex to help extend the life of hair colour. Hair masks are an essential step in keeping hair healthy. Don’t forget to put on that facial mask, to do double-mask duty. Hello, glowing skin and healthy hair!

Pro tip for curly hair gals: For added moisture to calm frizzy, thick or coarse hair instantly, use Fast Food leave on conditioner. This lightweight formula is infused with potent humectants like Abyssinian oil and aloe extract that do double duty to moisturize and mend split ends. Mix it with Re:coil curl activator to help smooth and define curls.

3. Refresh on the go

We all know how busy our schedules can get, from back-to-back classes to fitting in a mid-day spin class. That’s why dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend. It’s the perfect hair refresher when you’re on the go. Pack AG’s Simply Dry shampoo into your backpack, and let this translucent formula, featuring natural tapioca starch, soak up excess hair oil. Lift hair and spray directly onto roots six to eight inches away from your scalp, then massage and comb through with fingers. It will leave all hair types looking and feeling refreshed.

Pro tip: Spray on AG’s Simply Dry shampoo prior to a fitness class, it will start absorbing oils and sweat during your stellar workout sesh.
