Spring is officially here. But is your hair “spring ready”? The dryness of the cold winter season, as well as all that time spent in artificially-heated environments, may have caused havoc on the condition of your hair, leaving it cottony, without moisture and in need of some serious TLC.
Here are the best tips to revive your post-winter hair:
- Neither hot nor cold
During winter, you were probably too afraid to use lukewarm water to wash your hair because, well, it was just too cold! But now with spring in the air, the sun more present, there are no more feasible excuses. We recommend washing your hair with lukewarm water. Hot temperatures can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving you with tattered, dry and unmanageable hair.
- Trim regularly
It’s spring time. It’s time for change and a touch of freshness, wouldn’t you agree? But besides donning a new hairstyle, trimming off those split ends, which are weighing down your hair, will give you some bounce and a new sense of vitality. Trims are also widely known to strengthen your hair. So, make that appointment sooner rather than later.
- Cleansing balm
What’s amazing about great cleansing balm products is that they usually do five things in one; detangle, soften, condition, cleanse and shine. These five elements are the essentials of maintaining healthy hair, which is precisely what post-winter hair crucially needs. The best part about these balms is that you don’t need to use conditioner afterwards!
- Professional Treatment
Sometimes, post-winter hair is so devastating that all these great tips will just not cut it for you. If you feel that your hair is really damaged, either from the past season’s effects or from other causes such as medication or lack of healthy living, it is recommended that you visit a professional salon in Melbourne. You might need to have your hair treated with specific products designed to revive damaged hair and you’ll be springing in no time.
- Chill on the heating tools
This you know already. As commonly suggested, heating tools such as straightening irons and curling irons are essentially bad for the hair.They can unintentionally pull the hair, causing splits and sucking out the moisture and oils. We do understand that these tools are sometimes necessary, but just for a while, all we’re asking is to minimise your use of heating tools and let your hair have a chance to regain some of its natural vitality. If you do use them, be sure to always also use a heat protector.
With these tips, you can be certain that this spring and the coming summer will be great seasons for you to look your best.
