The MONPURE Autumn Haircare Guide
While summer is usually accompanied by hair damage from UV exposure and sea water or even excessively oily scalps, the onset of autumn can lead to dryness, dullness, brittleness, frizz and scalp irritation. As the seasons change and the temperatures begin to drop, our scalp and hair are confronted with a host of new challenges, whether it be the elements themselves, central heating, cold winds or the increased use of styling tools. We turn to hair dryers and stylers during autumn as air-drying becomes a lot more difficult in colder temperatures, and leaving the house with wet hair can be a recipe for a seasonal cold. It is essential to establish a revamped routine that caters to these issues while also offering some repair and relief from the damage done during summer.
Discover the MONPURE guide to autumn haircare that will foster good hair days throughout autumn and our expert tips and tricks that prepare you for a smooth seasonal transition.
Fight Moisture Loss
When temperatures drop, the humidity in the air decreases, which may lead to dry and dehydrated hair. Throw central indoor heating into the mix and you may be dealing with dry, brittle, dull and frizzy strands. There’s no better time than the onset of autumn to turn to MONPURE’s moisturising haircare products.
Opt for a shampoo and conditioner infused with hydrating ingredients free from harsh sulphates, silicones and parabens to replenish lost moisture while leaving the hair soft, silky and manageable. MONPURE’s Strengthening Essence-Conditioner features moisturising argan oil that nourishes, strengthens and smooths the hair, while restoring silkiness and shine. Hydrating Pro Vitamin B5 targets hair dryness and split ends, improves sheen and strengthens hair from the root.
Smooth The Cuticle
The central layer of the hair structure, called the cortex, is responsible for most of the hair’s strength. The outer layer, called the cuticle, is composed of overlapping cells that protect the inner layers of the shaft. The summer elements can often wreak havoc on the cuticle, causing the overlapping cells to become raised or damaged, making your hair more vulnerable to breakage or split ends. A damaged cuticle also increases hair porosity, decreases shine and worsens dryness. During autumn, it's time to begin repairing the vulnerable cuticle and improve the structural integrity of the hair strands.
feature a powerful ingredient called vegan keratin that works to smooth down the overlapping cells of the vulnerable cuticle. Keratin is the protein naturally found in the hair, forming the building-blocks of its structure. It rebuilds fragile follicles caused from a compromised cuticle, boosts elasticity, shine and improves hair health with every use.
The autumn elements, central heating, cold winds and the increased use of styling tools such as blow drying and straightening can leave your hair damaged and brittle. Damaged hair breaks easily and can make it extremely difficult (if not impossible) to reach your hair growth goals. The overall texture of hair damaged from hot styling tools can change from soft and naturally curly to stiff, straight and brittle with frizzy ends. The ends are usually the most damaged area and can feel like straw in texture.
To restore strength and elasticity to damaged hair, it is essential to incorporate products and ingredients that provide respite from heat damage and the dryness that accompanies it. MONPURE’s pioneering ingredient, vegan silk peptides, are revolutionary in their ability to protect and repair damaged hair.
Vegan silk peptides repair thermal damage by 72%. The application of vegan silk peptides yields scientifically-proven results, and fosters a stronger, healthier and more resilient scalp and hair environment. They improve the hair’s smoothness and shine, leaving it silky to the touch.

MONPURE’s Ultralight Healthy Hair Oil also repairs dry hair from heat damage and replenishes moisture to brittle strands with its lightweight and fast-absorbing formula. It contains innovative vegan keratin that seals down the cuticle and protects fragile hair from heat damage by rebuilding the strand’s structural integrity.
Soothe The Scalp
A dry, flaky, itchy and irritated scalp can become increasingly prevalent during the colder months. Dry scalp is often marked by small white flakes, and may be accompanied by itch and tightness. Dandruff is also more prevalent in the colder months. Experts argue that this may be as a result of both the cold, dry air as well as our tendency to wash our scalps less often as temperatures drop - which ultimately allows for fertile ground for an overgrowth of the yeast Malassezia.
Although Malassezia naturally occurs on the scalp in a healthy and balanced scalp microbiome, the overproduction of sebum gives this type of yeast the ‘perfect environment’ to flourish and grow, causing a disruption in the scalp’s intricate microbiome.
Impaired scalp health in the form of dry scalp, irritation or dandruff can lead to hair looking lifeless, dull, frizzy and prone to breakage. In severe cases, scalp irritations can even lead to hair loss, as the scalp is the incubator for healthy hair growth. It is vital to soothe the scalp and fight the flakes with hydrating, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory solutions.
MONPURE’s Clarifying Scalp Scrub is a gentle exfoliator that exfoliates away unwanted flakes, build-up and oils to support scalp health during the colder seasons. Biodegradable jojoba beads, argan oil, shea butter and stearic acid work together to help heal and rebalance the scalp, regulate moisture and alleviate discomfort.
MONPURE’s Hydrate and Soothe Scalp Serum is the perfect natural antidote for dry, itchy and inflamed scalps during autumn. Starring anti-inflammatory witch hazel water, aloe vera and exfoliating salicylic acid, this serum is the ideal spot treatment to quell and combat irritation while delivering abundant moisture to the scalp, allowing it to self-repair.
Fight The Frizz
Fluctuating weather during the autumn months can wreak havoc on the hair and can bring on the dreaded frizz. If you’ve spent hours washing, styling or smoothing your hair and your first step out the door means waving goodbye to your hard work, it's time to start tackling frizz in the styling process and look to a lightweight styling oil that doesn’t leave your locks heavy or weighed-down.
