Spring is almost here and it’s time for men to reconsider how they’ve been taking care of their hair. Long gone are the days of cold, dry spells that require intensive conditioning on a regular basis. The changing humidity in the air will certainly provide quite a bit of moisture in that department, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to abandon more rigorous hair care plans altogether. Let’s take a look at how to adjust hair care for the new season.
Men with shorter, straight hair often find that it’s just a matter of ditching intensive hydrating conditioners and opting for a more general or everyday conditioner. It’s certainly not the time to reduce daily conditioning efforts, but rather just making a simple adjustment in the type of conditioner being used makes all of the difference for a lot of men. It’s also a good time to take a look at the shampoo being used, too. This, like the conditioner, can be changed to a more general shampoo for everyday use as opposed to a proprietary cleanser. However, those in particularly humid areas may want to look towards strengthening shampoos and conditioners, which will provide an added degree of protection against breakage in the changing elements.
Choose UV Protection
The longer days and more sunlight as winter changes into spring will undoubtedly expose hair to a higher degree of UV rays. This can cause fading in hair and is especially noticeable in men who have lighter browns or even darker blonde hair. This is why it’s important to choose haircare products with added UV protection, which provide a heightened degree of protection against the sun’s damaging rays. This will be a particularly important note to consider as spring changes into summer, but even the dramatic shift between winter and spring is enough to cause some noticeable fading over the earliest months of the year.
Yeah, the warmer weather means a lot of guys are going to hit the pool. However, chlorine is a particularly damaging chemical when it comes to hair and requires its own layer of treatment. Every swim must immediately be followed by a clarifying shampoo and intensive moisturizing shampoo: likely the one used during the winter. It’s also best to swim wearing a swim cap to prevent a lot of hair loss.
