This time of year, I pack away my thicker sweaters and exchange them for the short sleeves I’ve missed all winter long. Similarly, I rotate my hair care products to complement the change in seasons. If you haven’t performed this spring cleaning ritual, here are a few things to consider as you begin choosing your spring hair care products.
Pack Away Winter Hair Products
To a head of curls, winter brings three major characteristics: cold outside, dry heat inside and cold humidity. Because curls need moisture to be their boosted best, this combination can rob them of their bounce.
In winter, I lean toward thicker creams and silicone-laden products to seal in the moisture from the creams, or leave-ins and products rich in oils and butters. The oils and butters penetrate deeply into my curls, imparting a lasting moisture that the dry air can’t evaporate away.
