As we spring into spring in Perth, we’re met with warmer weather, blossoming flowers and all sorts of fun spring hairstyles. Whilst you can breathe a sigh of relief that your hair has made it through isolation and the colder winter months, there’s a number of different things you can do to make sure your hair stays healthy and glowing as we transition into spring. The team at Rebecca Oates in Perth are dedicated to your hair all year round, and thanks to our years of experience, we’ve curated the top 5 spring hair care tips for you to incorporate into your daily lifestyle.
1. Don’t shampoo your hair every day.
You shouldn’t shampoo your hair every day normally, but especially during the warmer months as this can actually dry out your hair and remove the beneficial natural oils from it. This is particularly important for those of you that experience scalp issues, with some shampoos exacerbating the problem.
The dryness on your scalp can also cause dandruff and more split ends, which can both be pesky issues to deal with. If you are someone that shampoos every day, try and switch up your routine and wash every second day instead. You may be happily surprised by the results!
2. Condition your hair before swimming
As the weather heats up it can be tempting to go for a dip in a pool or down at the beach. It’s always important to condition your hair before swimming, particularly in public pools, where the harsh chemicals they use can damage your hair. The same applies to the beach, where the combination of sand and water can be quite aggravating to your hair. Braiding your hair before going to the beach is quite an effective tip. This will help to prevent tangling as having to deal with tangled and salty hair is not fun in the slightest.
3. Hair Cuts
One of the essential spring hair care tips is to have a nice trim to get rid of those damaged ends on your hair. This is the perfect way to kick off spring, helping you feel fresh and ready for the warm months ahead. Plus, if you’ve been holding off from getting a shorter cut but always wanted to try it, spring time is the perfect time to test that new short do. Having regular little trims throughout the season will ensure your hair is healthy and looking as good as it can be! We recommend booking in with one of our specialists at Rebecca Oates in our hair salon in Fremantle, so we can help assess the perfect hair care routine for you.
4. Be Careful of UV Damage
Although we’re blessed with an abundance of sunshine in Perth, it’s important to realise the effects of UV damage on your hair and scalp. As we start venturing out more and more, we’re exposing ourselves to the effects of the sun. UV protecting shampoo can help in reducing the harsh effects, especially on hair that has been colour treated. You can also opt to wear a hat on some occasions, making note that you shouldn’t be wearing a tight cap on your head for long periods of time.
5. Don’t Neglect Your Scalp!
With your hair being a priority, many people often neglect their scalp. It’s important to take the same care with your scalp that you do with the rest of your skin. At the end of the day, the quality and health of your hair is directly affected by how healthy your scalp is. Using special regenerating oils can help to nourish and equalise the pH balance of your scalp, leaving it more healthy for glowing hair to grow from.
