♥SPRING IS HAIR NATURALS! ♥
We are all ready for some bright spots in our dark days of winter and news. Most of us are ready for a real distraction and some warmer temps would help. As we step well into March, the dryness is leaving replacing it with moisture (and allergies running amok) and pretty soon the weather is going to be warm and almost perfect. Time for best spring hair tips to get your hair in tip top shape as well as sprucing it up for the new season.
So let’s get hair your ready for more moisture, spring events and getting rid of winter’s blues. Before all of that we need to do a few things in order to get our tresses in perfect shape for proms, festivals, graduations, and vacations.
Best spring hair time for a trim
Honey, it’s time to get a trim. You can get a trim for spring because you’ll be letting out your hair (if stuck in a protective style all winter) and you don’t want jagged edges when you let your hair down! Plus, it’s time to get rid of those split ends and single strand knots that you’ve been holding unto and trying to revive with products that says they’ll remove them (which they won’t). Time to make an appointment with a hair stylist or do it yourself on wash day.
Try something new – Cut it short or shave it!
It’s spring and the weather will be turning amazing! Time to try something new and one of the best spring hairstyles is simply chopping it off! It will be hot soon. Too much hair on your head? Shave the sides, rock it short, or simply get a short bob. This is the perfect time to go for broke and rock a short style. Hell, I did.
I cannot tell you how much I love my cut. Absolutely LOVE IT. I went to my lovely stylist here in Denver and she hooked me up. It looks amazing on me, and I the upkeep is super easy. While I will probably rock this for a few years, I know this cut will be ideal for carefree spring and summer.
Don’t want to cut your hair? Add some color! Permanently or even temporary color is always fun way to change up your hair and there are safe ways in either route. Of course, going with temp color will be the safest but even permanent coloring (if done right) does not have to be as damaging, especially if you work on keeping the hair moisturized and caring for it properly.
If you want to experiment without any hard work or damage, rock a wig or add some colorful braids. Honestly, the options are pretty endless with the colors, textures and lengths so have fun and just do it for spring and summer.
Protein Treatment for best spring hair
why not do a protein treatment? Our hair needs moisture as well as protein. So do a protein just to strengthen our tresses after the harsh winter season on our hair follicles. The protein treatment will help revive your damage hair strands and strengthen any damaged hair cuticles. Also, just to give our hair some extra TLC and get it back on track for another season.
My favorite protein treatment: Aubrey Organics GPB Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner
Switch Up Your Products – Because the season has changed it’s time to switch up our products. We need to step back from the winter hair products such as heavy creams and butters and winter hair routine such as buns which kept our ends tucked away through the harsh cold weather. It’s time to get back to light moisturizers with glycerin or purchase your own glycerin at any beauty supply store and do a DIY with water. In addition, use light oils such as almond, grapeseed or jojoba oil to seal in the moisture rather than thick oils such as castor oil.
My favorite light oil: Jojoba Oil
The increased moisture in the atmosphere makes some styles difficult to maintain. Since the weather will become really humid and our hair will be prone to frizz; we can minimize it with styling aids like gels when doing a braid/twist outs and/or wash and gos.
You may also be coaxed into wearing a protective styles such as mini twists or braids or Havana/Marley twists. You can enjoy your hair out on some days and protect your hair on other days as a way to retain length. (If trying braids remember to let hair rest in between applications!)
5 Ways To Get Your Body Ready For Spring!
Get your hair out of that protective style – If you have been keeping your hair in a protective style all winter long, it’s time to take it down, allow your hair to rest and give your scalp and hair a much needed break! I cannot say often enough that hair needs at least two weeks of down time between installs whether you are talking about braids, sew ins or any other long-term protective style. Too much tension on your scalp or edges can cause hair loss or breakage so allow hair to rest in between and a deep conditioning is crucial to beef up your hair’s strength.
