Spring Cleaning for Your Hair – Refresh Your Hydration Routine

Clean your hair

Amid the spring-cleaning frenzy, we are all focused on our homes, offices, cars, wardrobes, and even detoxing our bodies. But the truth is, we also need to prioritize hydrating and moisturizing our hair as the seasons change.

The beautiful spring days get longer, positively affecting our mood and habits, so this is probably the best time to start some new hair routines. Spoiler alert: start by getting easy on using a heated blow dryer. Winter weather has already done its share of damaging your hair, leaving it dry and lacking vitality and shine. But with a few simple tips, you can turn it into a healthy and silky part of your look that you will love!

Take good care of your scalp!

You can’t aim for fabulous healthy hair without proper care of your scalp. Hair spray, wax, oils, and dirt are the first-line challenges to overcome for a well-hydrated scalp and beautiful hair. So, try to find a good scalp scrub and start using it as written on the instruction label. Finish this routine by washing your hair using a clarifying shampoo. High quality healthy hair products can help you get the results you wish for in just a few weeks.

Microfiber hair wrap is your new friend.

With the weather getting better and warmer each day, springtime is a perfect time to avoid heated hair tools for styling and blow drying and start using a microfiber hair wrap instead. Combine this with a high-quality leave-on hair mask and you will get your hair recovered faster and start feeling amazing again.

Hair mask or hydrating hair conditioner – or both?

When thinking of a hair mask, think of a deep intensive hair treatment that should be used one to three times per week, or every third hair wash. Such treatment provides nutrients and hydration to keep your hair healthy and shiny.

Hair conditioners are more of a lighter version of moisturizers compared to hair masks. Therefore, they can be used more frequently, or every time you wash your hair. However, if your hair is dull and dry after the winter, and you want to put extra effort into repairing it, try using both – hydrating hair conditioner every time you wash it, and a hair mask once or twice per week.

You can also use a rinse-out conditioner and a leave-in hair mask right after it, or try the opposite, as there are two versions of both conditioners and hair mask products available on the market. In case you need a piece of expert advice, ask a skillful hairdresser to recommend salon hair care products, as they are of the highest quality.

Improve your overall health!

You have probably heard the saying that beauty starts inside out, so this goes for your hair too. Mindful eating in the frames of a well-balanced diet can do wonders for you and your hair, as it will provide all the much-needed nutrients for your body.

Food products that are beneficial for your overall health are those rich in omega-3, such as flax seeds, chia seeds, tuna, salmon, broccoli, and cauliflower. If you are a vegetarian, make sure that you use enough B6, B12, and folic acid supplements to ensure good health, glowing skin, hard nails, and shiny, vital, well-hydrated hair.

Rinse, rinse, rinse!

With the upcoming pool and beach season, it is important to remember to rinse your hair after every swim or dive-in party. Moreover, it is always good to use a clarifying shampoo that will take off pool chemicals such as chlorine or salt seawater, as they can cause serious hair damage by the end of the summer season, especially for blondes.
