Did you hear the news? Spring may be coming early this year! That means April showers, May flowers, and yes, your new hair regimen, might arrive a lot earlier than anticipated. It's time for an updated look and new line of products to get your hair light, bouncy, and healthy for the new season. Here are a few tips and recommendations you can follow to make sure your hair is spring-ready!
The obvious key difference between winter and spring is that the weather is slightly warmer. This means that you'll have to wash your hair more often because excess sweat causes a lot more dirt and product build-up than it did in the winter months.
"You want me to wash my hair more?" is the confused-question that typically runs through a natural haired woman's mind because the fears about dry, brittle hair is now a real concern. Luckily, with the right shampoo and conditioner you don't ever have to worry about harmful chemicals stripping the natural oils from your curls.
We use so many heavy creams and oils during the winter because the cold weather can be very harsh and drying for curly hair. Spring, however, is a little different. There's a little rain, some wind, and a whole lot of sunshine which means it's okay to use lighter products, but you still need something that offers light hold and frizz-control.
Curls Unleashed Shea Butter & Honey Curl Defining Creme is an ideal product for the season because it blended with lightweight oils like Sweet Almond and Safflower, both of which stimulate hair growth and minimize hair loss. It would be a great idea to moisturize with the defining creme and seal with the same oils blended in the formula to reinforce the benefits.
Spring can be one of the more unpredictable seasons so knowing how to style your hair according to the weather is a major key in protecting it. However, it can be a bit of a hassle to keep switching up styles throughout the week so long-term protective styles should be your go-to for spring.
Braids, twists, wigs, weaves, and crochet styles are ideal because they keep your real hair out of the way and not at all exposed to difficult weather conditions. Because your hair will be tucked away for a little while, it's important to properly moisturize before styling.
Curls Unleashed Sage & Kiwi Intense Hair Conditioner is great for before and after protective styles because it gives you all the added moisture you need. Do a heated deep condition with it before you style, and co-wash with it after to keep hair healthy and easy to detangle.
You don’t need to change your hair regimen and routine too much for a new season, it just needs an update! If you do wash and gos, finger detangling, pre-poos, deep conditioners--keep on keeping on! However, it wouldn't hurt to swap out a few products for something new and rejuvenating.
Using the Curls Unleashed Amplifying Gel Souffle keeps your curls moisturized, elongated, and protected for a whole 24 hours! It works especially well when paired with Curls Unleashed Curl Refresher because while one works to put the moisture and bounce in your curls, the other hydrates and refreshes them to make sure they stay that way.
