Spring is all about putting things in order and that doesn’t involve just your home. Spring is finally here! With everything growing in fresh and new, it seems like the perfect time for rejuvenation.

It is really important to look after your hair as it has a profound effect on your overall presentation. Don’t you want others to know that you care about yourself and take care of yourself? If so, use these hair tips for spring to get your hair looking fine as we bring in the warm weather! These are some tips on dealing with spring weathers’ most maddening effects on your hair.
The Most Effective Spring Hair Care Tips
- Please try to get rid of the nasty habit of washing your hair every day. Your hair is supposed to have a reasonable amount of oil in it, so it shouldn’t be squeaky clean. Plus, all that rubbing messes up the cuticle patterns on your hairs and the curls end up all crazy – not in the good way!
- Frizz can be a terrible thing to have to deal with when humidity shows up. While using heat products like a flat iron can work okay, it can harm your hair as well. If you would rather keep your hair healthy, just look for hair gels or mousse that contains polymers or copolymers in it. This ingredient helps to tame your #hair by coating it and can help fight the humidity as well.
- If your hair gets weighed down easily or never feels clean, try a baking soda rinse to get rid of that extra residue. Mix two tablespoons baking soda with about a half cup of water, then massage the mixture into the hair from the scalp to ends. Let this mixture set for about fifteen minutes, then rinse and wash as usual. This treatment can be applied twice a month, or whenever hair is needing some extra cleaning.
- Hot tools are invaluable for keeping strands smooth. We’re talking blow dryers and straighteners, of course, but a curling iron is also a good choice for the wavy-haired set. Rather than just air-drying or diffusing, use a curling iron to help define and set ringlets and ward off frizzes.
- Face up to the scissors, your hair deserves it. We are just talking about a few snips here and there, nothing major. You’ll still keep your locks long, but without those dry, dead ends. Your hair has taken a beating with winter’s cold and dry weather, so reward it with a trim.
- Flour is great for those days when your hairstyle looks great but your roots are a bit greasy. Either use a dry sponge or your fingers to apply about one tablespoon or less of flour onto the roots of your hair, focusing on the areas where it is most oily. Let the flour sit for about three to five minutes, then brush through hair with fingers or a comb to get out any remaining flour. This flour method can be used for multiple days in a row to reduce oil and unwanted shine.
- The sun can cause your skin as well as your hair to age. Applying UV protection on your hair is just as important as it is on your skin. Try UV protecting shampoos, conditioners and sprays.
- After you’ve shampooed, give a try to putting a bit of honey on your hair, leaving it there and then rinsing it out before you condition. Your hair will feel softer, be super shiny and look amazing!
