Should You Change Your Hair Care Routine With the Seasons
As the seasons change you naturally update your wardrobe to suit the weather, but do you adapt your hair care products or routine based on the season? If not, you should. Your hair needs change right along with the weather, and giving it what it needs is the key to beautiful healthy looking hair year-round. Here are a few changes you should be making to your hair care regimen as we transition from winter into spring.
Start With a Trim
After months of cold dry winter air, your hair is sure to have sustained some damage. So if you’re not already in the habit of getting a trim every six weeks or so, you’ll want to start the season with a good trim. Removing those damaged ends will improve both the health and appearance of your hair.
In the winter you need a heavier ultra-moisturizing conditioner to combat the dry indoor heat and cold winds. As humidity levels rise in the spring your hair naturally retains more moisture and those heavy conditioners can weigh your strands down. Consider switching to a lighter-weight formula to keep your locks hydrated without falling flat or looking greasy.
Winter calls for a gentle shampoo to avoid stripping natural oils, but as the temperatures rise in spring so does your scalp’s oil production. If you’re prone to oily hair, now’s the time to switch from the moisturizing or deep conditioning formulas to a clarifying shampoo to help keep those natural oils in check and avoid buildup.
Your styling products can use a seasonal update as well. You may not have needed frizz control or humidity protection in winter, but if your hair is as fickle as the spring forecast, chances are you need it now. Look for lightweight frizz serums and anti-humidity styling products to keep your hair from poofing when the spring rains start.
Typically in colder weather, we spend more time indoors, so sun damage isn’t as much of a concern. But as the weather warms and we spend more time outside it’s important to protect your strands from the sun. Cover your hair with a hat or apply a UV protectant hairspray before going outdoors to keep the ultraviolet rays from damaging your hair.
