Relaxation on Overdrive: A Trip to the Spa

5 Tips For Taking Great Care Of Your Hair This Spring

As spring starts, it is time to embrace a new care routine for your hair. Spring is a great time to refresh your hair routine and to give yourself a new haircut as a way to change your appearance.

Tip #1: Get a Trim

The first thing you need to do is head to your hairstylist and get a trim. Getting a trim will eliminate all the dead and damaged ends from your hair. Your hair will feel healthier and will have more volume.

By starting with a trim instead of getting an entirely new hairstyle, you will be able to see what condition your hair is in overall and make a smarter choice about what new hairstyle you want to embrace.

Tip #2: Get Rid of Tangles Before You Shower

Before you get in the shower, spend a few minutes brushing your hair out. That way, when you get in the shower, your hair is already free of tangles. Use a detangling brush. These vented brushes are specially designed to get rid of knots without damaging your hair.

Your hair is more likely to break when it is wet, so brushing your hair gently with a brush before you take a shower will help prevent more breakage of your hair.

Tip #3: Switch Your Shampoo and Conditioner

In the winter, you want to use extra-hydrating shampoos and conditioners, as the lack of moisture in the hair can cause your hair to get brittle. This is not true in the spring and summertime, though, which is why you should switch your shampoos with the seasons.

You should switch to a lightweight shampoo and conditioner that is more focused on adding body to your hair and keeping it clean. Your hairdresser should have some recommendations for you that will keep your hair clean and give it volume without being too heavy for your hair.

Tip #4: Protect Your Hair from the Sun

Your skin is not the only thing that needs to be protected from the sun. Your hair needs to be protected from the sun as well. You can protect your hair from the sun by using hair products that have ultraviolet protection built into the product.

Tip #5: Get a New Hairstyle

After you have gotten a trim and changed up your hair routine, it is time to get a new hairstyle. You now know how your hair is responding to the spring and summer weather, and after getting your trim, you know how much hair you have to work with.

Return to your hairstylist and consider adding some highlights to your hair and going for a fun, new hairstyle for the warm weather.
