It’s that time of the year when spring cleaning has us thinking about how we can clean up our beauty arsenals, and even revamp parts of our skin care and hair care routines. After all, new seasons often call for swapping out our formulas to adjust to changes in the weather. Luckily, when it comes to refreshing your hair care routine for spring it doesn’t have to be complicated.
As long as you have the right pre-shampoo, shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask or treatment to get you started, you can keep your locks looking gorgeous and healthy. Depending on your hair type and texture, of course, each of these products should be chosen to address specific hair-care concerns, including keeping color-treated tresses looking vibrant and moisturizing dry, lifeless locks. So ahead, we rounded up the best products and treatments for a simple, yet effective hair care regimen this spring.
STEP 1: Start With a Pre-Shampoo Treatment
Before you even wash your hair, using a pre-shampoo treatment can help restore moisture to your strands or get rid of build-up on your hair and scalp. If you have a dry, flaky, or oily scalp start with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Scrub to gently exfoliate it and remove build-up. It also treats dandruff while being gentle on color-treated hair.
STEP 2: Shampoo + Conditioner
Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner is the next step to thoroughly cleansing your hair and refreshing it through the new season. We love the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Conditioner system, which works to hydrate and nourish dry hair in just one use.
Dealing with dandruff or a congested scalp? Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Scalp Care + Detox Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Scalp Care + Detox Conditioner duo, which purifies and cleanses the scalp of product buildup and oil without stripping your hair.
For flat hair, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Volume Filler Thickening Conditioner, while curly-hair will do best with the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Conditioner. No matter which you choose based on your hair type, your strands will be cleansed of oil, dirt, and unwanted build-up with all of these picks, and you’ll be left feeling a fresh, nourished mane.
STEP 3: Hair Mask or Treatment
After you shampoo and condition, use a hair mask or treatment for extra moisture, shine and strength. If you have color treated hair, opt for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm or the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Anti Brass Purple Mask Treatment. These options will help keep your hair color vibrant, shiny and intact while infusing your hair with the nourishment it needs.
If you deal with frizz and damage, grab the L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Hair Treatment that has glycerin to gently detangle, soften and smooth each strand. For curls, try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Re-Nourish Mask to eliminate dryness and keep your curls bouncy, and soft.
STEP 4: Leave in Conditioner or Serum
After your shampoo and treatment and just before you dry your hair, finish with a serum or leave-in conditioner. We love the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment for dry hair, or the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner with heat protection if you plan on blow drying your strands.
