Those long, harsh winter months can take a toll on your body – and that includes your hair. Whether it’s been stuffed under a hood or flattened under a hat, your hair has inevitably been exposed to those bitter cold temperatures and that dry, damaging air. This spring, reinvigorate your hair with some well-deserved TLC. Here are few tips about how you can get your locks looking fabulous again.
Trim Away Those Brittle Ends
There’s nothing quite like getting a fresh start – and for your hair, that means cutting off those brittle ends. The tips of your hair generally are where the most obvious effects from that dry winter air are focused. So make an appointment and get rid of them! Out with the old and in with the new fresh locks.
With the warmer weather right around the corner, why not add a few highlights to your hair? This can work wonders for enhancing your features, brightening your face and freshening up your entire look. A few highlights can bring your hair back to life.
Change Your Hair Products
When your hair starts to look limp, dull and in need of some desperate attention, often the solution is simply to change up your hair care products. For example, if you have been using a moisture-based shampoo or conditioner during the winter, it could be time for you to swap for a lighter product. Also, if you use low-quality products, they could be doing more damage than good. Talk to your hairdresser to ask what they recommend and discuss what products might be best suited for your hair.
Fight the Frizz
There’s nothing quite as annoying and unappealing as frizz. For those with wavy or curly hair, this can be the ultimate bane of your hair care regimen. Whether it’s a hot sunny day or a dreary, wet drizzle, you need to be prepped and ready to combat that frizz. Hair serums are a great way to tackle this problem. You can also look for a spray so that you can simply spritz and get on with your day without worrying about the potential “frizz forecast” of your hair.
Your hair has been put through a lot this winter. It’s time for you to give it some love and attention in order to get back that healthy shine. Simply follow these tips and you’ll have those locks looking fresh and fabulous, just in time for the summer!
