The transition from the cold and dry winter to the hot and moist spring can be tough on your hair. These changes in the climate and weather can bring about a host of hair problems. Hence, you need to know proper maintenance tips to make it easier for your hair to cope with these changes.
Balance of Moisture
One of the trickiest part of maintaining healthy hair involves getting the right amount of moisture. It is no secret that moisture plays an important role in keeping your hair healthy and looking beautiful at all times. But it is increasingly difficult during spring as the weather quickly changes from hot to humid to wet on a whim. How do you cope without wrecking havoc on your hair?
You need to make changes to your conditioning routine to keep up with the hot humid weather. For example, if you use heavy conditioner for winter, switch to a lighter conditioner for spring. Pay attention to your hair. Add or cut back on moisture from your regimen accordingly.
Regular Deep Conditioning
Getting regular deep conditioning treatment is more important in the spring and summer than it is during fall or winter. For healthy hair that lacks any major hair problem, however, you can deep condition once a month. This will help keep your hair nourished and feel soft to the touch.
Add in Highlights
Maintaining the right moisture level in your hair can be made more difficult if you choose to get highlights. When your hair is dry and frizzy, it becomes more pronounced because you have highlights. Invest in a good protein conditioner or treatment for your highlighted hair.
Protection from Chlorine
Chlorine on hair is never a good thing. Hence, you need to learn how to protect your hair against it, especially since you are probably going to spend a lot of time in the pool during spring. The worst part is that chlorine could build up on your hair over time, making it look weak, unhealthy and damaged.
Use a clarifying shampoo on your hair following your pool session. Then, use a balancing conditioner to restore your hair condition. You could also visit the salon for a treatment to get rid of chlorine buildup.
