With every new season, it is important to reassess your beauty routines and make sure that the products and tools you are using are equipped to handle the weather and your lifestyle, while also keeping you stylish.
To assist you with the upcoming season change, read on to learn the five steps you need to take for spring-ready hair.
1. Recognize any current issues.
Before you can start prepping your hair for the spring and summer months, you first need to take stock of where it is currently and any issues which you are presently dealing with. After all, the dry air of winter and the constant demand for hats wreaks havoc on all types of hair.
One of the most common problems for hair after the winter season is that it is left very dull and dry and in pressing need of a boost in shine. Alternatively, your hair might feel straw-like due to the drop in moisture over the winter months. A dry, itchy scalp and significantly flattened hair (thanks to warm headwear!) are other prevalent aftereffects of winter on the hair.
Generally, when the seasons change from winter to spring, people notice an oily scalp, a reduction in volume, and duller color from sun exposure. For this reason, it is important to find products that work to improve these conditions and work to lock in moisture and protect your scalp and hair.
2. Book a day at the salon.
Whether you are dealing with dry hair or split ends, the best thing to do is to treat yourself to a day at the salon with a professional who can handle your hair with care and reverse some of the negative consequences that inevitably come from the colder months. If you are dealing with dull and dry hair, then getting a hair treatment in Dubai is a surefire way of restoring and enhancing the health of your hair.
Why not make a day out of it and invite your best friends or your Mom to come along and get themselves ready for spring as well? You could go the whole way and get manicures and pedicures, a facial, and have your lashes and brows expertly groomed, in addition to sorting out any hair issues.
3. Consider trying new spring hair trends.
Spring is a time when many people feel they are re-emerging from the depths of winter and want their style to reflect that.
If you have been thinking about switching up your hair color, this could be the perfect opportunity to do just that. Even if you don’t want to commit to change the color of your hair entirely, you can still freshen up your look by using vibrant temporary sprays or hair extensions.
Alternatively, you don’t need to touch the color and instead look for new ways to style your hair. This season, hair accessories are a significant trend as hair clips and scrunchies have been seen all over fashion runways and in magazines. Try wearing pearl-covered clips for a hairstyle that is both on-trend and sophisticated.
4. Ensure you are protecting your hair in the heat.
Moving forward, you want to make sure that you are looking after your hair and protecting it from the heat. For hair that gets brassy immediately upon being touched by sunlight, including a UV-protecting leave-in conditioner in your hair routine will stop it from happening, while a violet-tinted mask will help bring the cool tones back to life.
If you have been to the best hairstylist in Dubai (or wherever you reside), then ask him or her about ways in which you can better protect your hair in the upcoming months.
