Autumn/Winter Hair Care Tips for Hair System Wearers

24 October 2023

As the vibrant hues of Autumn leaves transition into the stark beauty of Winter, hair system wearers face unique challenges. 

The cold, dry air of the season can be less forgiving, but fear not. With Optima’s expertise, maintaining a pristine and natural-looking hair system is entirely achievable.

This guide will delve into essential tips for this season, emphasising the invaluable role of regular appointments and refittings.

The Autumn/Winter Challenge

The characteristic drop in humidity levels during these months leads to drier air, which in turn can cause hair systems to become more brittle and less elastic.

The texture can change unless you look after it, leading to potential tangling and breakage.

1️⃣ The Importance of Regular Appointments and Refittings

Embarking on the hair system journey is a transformative experience. As detailed in Optima’s invaluable guide on the process of having a hair system fitted, maintaining your hair system is crucial for its longevity.

Think of it as nurturing a precious investment. Regular check-ups ensure that the hair system remains in optimal condition, adapting to the seasonal shifts and challenges. Refittings, vital in their own right, cater to any subtle changes in your hair.

2️⃣ Essential Maintenance Tips for Colder Months


Just as our skin craves more moisture during colder months, so does the hair system. Using hydrating shampoos and conditioners becomes paramount to fend off dryness. Rely on the Optima experts’ recommended products to ensure your hair system remains lush and vibrant.

Avoid Direct Heat

While it might be tempting to seek the warmth of hair tools, it’s crucial to exercise caution. Over-reliance on heated tools can degrade hair quality. Instead, opt for air drying or, if in a rush, use a blow dryer on a cool setting.

Gentle Styling

The hair system, especially in drier conditions, can be sensitive. Avoid aggressive brushing or styling that might cause stress. Soft, wide-tooth combs or specialised brushes for hair systems are your best allies here.

3️⃣ Timely Styling and Haircuts

Natural growth ensures that the hair in your system, over time, may need a trim or style update. Regular trims ensure aesthetic appeal and play a preventive role by reducing the chances of tangling and matting. 

Rely on Optima’s seasoned stylists, who, with their vast experience, can craft the perfect style suited to both the season and your personal preferences.

Autumn and Winter, with their distinct challenges, necessitate special attention for hair system wearers. But with diligent care and the unmatched expertise from Optima, these challenges become mere trivialities.
