Spring Hair Products
Unlike the cold, dry winter days that zap moisture from your hair, spring brings heat and humidity that can play havoc with your curls. But there's no reason to fear the rain and extra moisture. Put away those heavy creams and butters and use these spring hair care tips and products to keep your curls defined and frizz free all season long.
1. Lock-in Moisture
After spending the winter moisturizing your hair, the damp air from spring showers will actually bring life back to your curls. Unfortunately, the combination of wind, heat and humidity can cause your hair to frizz rather than just bounce. To keep the moisture without the frizz, protect your hair’s natural oils with a gentle moisturizing shampoo, cleansing cream or conditioner.
2. Deep Condition
Even if you spent the entire winter deep conditioning, you'll want to continue your regimen throughout the warmer spring weather. Deep conditioning will keep your hair healthy and smooth out the cuticles which can stand out and cause frizz. Be careful to avoid deep conditioners with a lot of protein, as they tend to reduce your hair's flexibility and leave it prone to breakage. The purpose of deep conditioning in the spring is to moisturize your hair without weighing it down.
3. Control Frizz
Frizz occurs when humid air penetrates the hair shaft causing it to swell. The heat and humidity of spring showers will add the extra challenge of taming frizz to your daily routine. The secret is to use frizz-fighting, anti-humectant hair styling and moisture sealing products to lock in existing moisture and repel excess moisture in the air that can cause frizz.
4. Refresh Your Curls
To maintain the proper balance of moisture, you'll need to refresh your curls regularly, but cleansing every day can strip your hair of natural oils. The key is using curl refreshing products to add a just the right amount of moisture to revive the shape of your curl. These products will help you achieve bouncy second and third day curls.
