After the very hot summer, Fall just became our new favorite season out here in Atlanta. From the cool crisp air to the lovely changes of the trees, we have been enjoying ourselves this season. Not to mention, our skin and hair is adapting beautifully. That being said, we wanted to share our top 7 favorite things we love about Autumn and be sure to comment what you love (or hate) about this season below for an extra 50 Shea Cash points.
1) The Beauty of Nature
There is something magical about leaves changing colors. From the ombré effect of the green to orange to yellow to brown, it is like these trees are outfit-ready. Not to mention the leaves take on this crispy texture that children and their dogs seem to enjoy more than most. I was coming home the other day from the post office (yep, I was shipping your orders) and saw this little girl and her Golden Retriever puppy jumping into a pile of orange and yellow leaves that were flying everywhere. It was too cute and just made me think how some things like playing is more simple than we tend to believe at times. We only need to be open to it. All of this just solidified why we cannot help but fall in love with the beauty of nature (pun-intended).
2) Natural Hair Styles
Well our curls be poppin' in every season to be honest, but you know we had to mention them here. Just like the beauty of nature, it is great to see the creativity we embrace and project upon our hair. From twists, braids, cornrows, bantu knots, buns, pony takes, puffs, braid crowns, locs, wash-and-gos, and the multitude of protective styles we can wear, our hair can easily avoid dull moments. Of course, with the right products like our Avocado + Vanilla Multi-Conditioner to hydrate and any of our Oil Medleys to seal in that moisture, our curly cues will stay lively this season.
We love this styled and pulled back curly tale by @truleynaturalbeauty on Instagram. You can wear this style at work, to walk at the park, out on date night, and so much more.

3) Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
You already know! Autumn is all about pumpkin spice everything. The combination of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice awakens the senses while relaxing your mind. Not to mention they provide some amazing benefits for your hair and skin as well.
Here are some of our favorite Pumpkin Spice inspired products:
- Kyra's Shea Medleys Pumpkin Spice Beauty Collection for hair and skin care.
- Posh Candle's "But First, Pumpkin" Candle
- Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte (add caramel syrup, you'll thank us later)
4) Sweater Season
Our curls look great with anything, including sweaters, puffy jackets, and scarves. Fall is the time to embrace and enjoy sweater weather.
The cool, crisp, and fresh air that Fall brings is undeniably refreshing. It is literally a balance between the hot summer and the cold winter. What is your favorite outfit for the season? Let us know in the comments below.
5) Comfort Food
After we get over the candy rush from Halloween, hot comfort foods like macaroni and cheese, dressings, collard greens, yams, apple pies, and pecan tarts are just around the corner. But don't go too crazy. Thanksgiving is also about celebrating and appreciating time with our loved ones. Make sure you let them know how much you love them.
