Your Post-Winter Hair Care Routine Your Post-Winter Hair Care Routine Your Post-Winter Hair Care Routine

Spring is in sight—and we couldn’t be more thankful! But after months of bitter cold and bristling winds—not to mention lots of time spent in artificial indoor heat—your hair might be looking and feeling a little worse for wear. Ready to get your mane back on track for the new season? Consider this your guide to post-winter hair care. Add the following tips to your beauty routine to pamper your strands as we transition from winter to spring.

Spring Hair Care Tip #1: Try a Cleansing Balm

Is your hair dry and damaged? It could be time to give a cleansing balm a go the next time you’re in the shower! The L’Oréal Paris EverCréme Cleansing Balm for dry, damaged hair is a six-in-one product. Basically, it does it all! It cleanses, conditions, treats, detangles, softens, and adds shine. To use, apply six to eight pumps (you may need more if you have long hair) to wet hair. Massage gently and distribute evenly throughout your hair until it’s fully saturated. Leave it in for three to five minutes, then rinse. The best part: You don’t have to follow up with conditioner! You’re now ready to go about your styling routine.

Spring Hair Care Tip #2: Keep the Temperature Down in the Shower

While taking a super-hot shower might’ve been comforting in the winter, it’s not exactly great for your hair—so make it your mission to only rinse off in lukewarm water starting this spring. Hot water can be drying and can strip your hair of essential oils, which is why you’ll want to avoid it. If you can’t give up hot showers completely, at least limit the amount of time you spend in the shower.

Spring Hair Care Tip #3: Add a Boar Bristle Brush to Your Arsenal

Brushes with plastic bristles can snag your hair, whereas a boar bristle brush can be gentler. What’s more, boar bristle brushes can help distribute the natural oils from your scalp throughout the lengths of your hair.

Spring Hair Care Tip #4: Give Your Heat Tools a Break

Excessive heat styling can lead to damage—and since you can let your hair dry naturally without freezing your butt off once the weather gets warmer, this is the perfect opportunity to rest your blow-dryer, curling iron, and flat iron for a while. That doesn’t mean you have to give up styling your hair altogether, though—just air dry it instead! Here are three easy ways to embrace your natural texture.

Apply an egg-sized dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to wet hair and flip your hair upside down to scrunch.

Spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried hair, then braid your mane to create loose waves. Once your hair has dried, undo the braid and shake your hands through your hair.

Run a tiny bit of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream through wet hair, then apply a little bit more to your ends when your hair has dried for added smoothness.

Spring Hair Care Tip #5: Get Regular Trims

The only way to truly rid yourself of dead ends that are weighing your hair down is to have them snipped off. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and call your hairstylist to book an appointment! Want to try a trendy new haircut? Spring’s the perfect time to make the chop—particularly if you want to shorten things up significantly. If a completely new hairstyle is what you’re after, be sure to bring in photos of what you’d like so that your stylist fully understands what you want. He or she will also be able to make suggestions as to what kind of haircut will work best with your hair type (a pixie cut might not be the best option if you have naturally curly hair, for example) and lifestyle (if you’re super-low maintenance, a lob could be the perfect choice for you).
