Courtesy/InStyle During the fall, natural hair is prone to damage due to environmental factors like cold temperatures and wind. As the weather gets brisk and the wind gets even stronger, it's important to make sure you're using the right products to keep your hair healthy and damage-free. But I already know what you're thinking, "It's not as easy as it seems to find the right products'" ─ and I agree. There's a lot to choose from, plus, it's hard to know which products live up to the description on the bottle. The 8 Best Satin-Lined Fall Hats and Hair Accessories to Avoid Breakage To help you with your fall hair routine, we reached out to three celebrity hairstylists to ask them to share their favorite hair care products for naturalistas. VIDEO: What Exactly Is Sulfate — and What Does It Do? African Pride Black Castor Miracle Braid and Scalp Cleansing Rinse COURTESY $9; walmart.com If you've always thought you can wash your hair less during the fall because the weather is cooler and the scalp isn't producing as much oil, you're wrong. According to celebrity hairstylist, Monae Evertt, you shouldn't go longer than two weeks between cleansing. "African Pride Black Castor Miracle Braid and Scalp Cleansing Rinse is perfect for cleansing the scalp while wearing protective styles," says Everett. "Cleansing the scalp is always important and a clean scalp aids healthy hair." Creme Of Nature Argan Oil Anti Humidity Gloss and Shine Spray COURTESY $10; amazon "After dealing with the humidity from the summer, fall is the best time of year to let your natural tresses flow," says Kellon Deryck, celebrity hairstylist, and brand ambassador for Creme of Nature.

Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray COURTESY $18; walmart If you're looking for a good heat protectant that will condition your hair while guarding it against heat styling, this will do the trick. The light, active formula is infused with blue agave nectar which acts as a hair treatment, strengthening and repairing damaged hair by retaining moisture and nourishment. "This spray is my go-to for blow drying and iron work," says Everett. "I love to use this on my natural hair clients anytime I am going to heat style their hair. I tend to spray it on damp hair as it helps hold (hot) curls longer."

Creme of Nature Exotic Shine Hair Color with Argan Oil COURTESY $17; amazon.com If you're looking for a monumental fall hair transformation, color is the way to go. Dyeing your hair during the colder months can give any hairstyle new life. "I've always been a fan of warm-colored hair in the fall," says Deryck.

The formula is infused with black castor oil and argan oil, which helps create a touchable hold without leaving a cast or flaking. "This is my must-have for wash-and-goes when I'm working on set," says Everett. " I love to use this gel for clients with coily hair as the gel dries fast, adds moisture, and gives the curls an extra bounce." Curls Blueberry Bliss Twist-N-Shout Cream COURTESY $12; target.com There's nothing more annoying than clumpy strands that have been twisted for hours and come out... not as expected. If you've stood in the mirror for hours trying to accomplish a coily twist out, you'll know what I'm talking about. But don't be dismayed, this cream could be your saving grace, and it's one of Everett's favorites. "For twist-outs, braid-outs, and other set styles, I apply this cream to damp hair before twisting or braiding the hair," says the stylist. "Once the hair is completely dry and the twists or braids are removed, the hair feels moisturized, has a natural sheen, and most importantly, the hair is set in place." Ouidad Heavy Lifting Bubbling Scalp Mask COURTESY $38; macys.com Activated by your scalp's pH, this detoxifying treatment gently lifts away dirt, oil, and buildup.

"The blend of aloe is soothing on the scalp and leaves the hair feeling hydrated." Price at time of publish: $14 TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum COURTESY $6; target.com This non-greasy formula calms unruly hair for a look that's perfectly polished and full of natural movement. "After doing any natural hair set like a braid out, I use this serum to separate the curls and avoid frizz," says Everett. "I apply the serum to my fingertips to coat the strands as I untwist or unbraid the hair. If you don't coat your fingertips in serum, you're likely to create frizz and you won't be able to see the curl definition." Price at time of publish: $8 This is All Natural.
