Self Love For Spring: Helpful Tips for Proper Hair Care

With spring upon us, the sun-soaked vacation daydreams have begun. Picture it now, sitting on the beach hanging with your best girlfriends and a good margarita in one hand. It doesn’t get any better! You know your outfit, pictures and hair are going to rock your IG following, until you start to recall last year’s post-spring break disaster - dry, damaged hair. We’ve all been there and it’s not a good feeling. For those envy-worthy #hairgoal hairstyles, proper hair care will keep your luscious locks in check this year! Don’t fret, you still have time to prepare. Simply incorporate some of these luxurious at-home treatments into your daily (or weekly) routine.

MASK YOUR MANE

Start your spring break preparations on the right strand by treating your hair to a mask. Think about doing a hair mask once a week. Any more frequent than that will weigh down your hair. The simple act of doing this will help nourish, add moisture and protect your hair. The stronger your hair is, the less likely it will become damaged by that fun in the sun. Your go-to to get this done – the Discipline Smoothing Mask. The Morpho-Kératine™ Complex within this mask protects your hair fibers and leaves hair soft and silky. Including this mask into your weekly routine is sure to bring your hair back to its natural, sumptuous state, bringing you one step closer to a more manageable, carefree mane.

PRIMP & PRIME

Priming your hair is just as important as priming your face before applying makeup. Think of your hair as a sponge. It will absorb all the water it can, which does more harm than good. Absorbing so much water causes the hair strands to stretch past the brink of no return. The results; weak, brittle hair that is more prone to breakage. The best way to avoid this is by applying hair oil daily, such as Elixir Ultime Original Hair Oil which acts as a primer and barrier from the drying effects of outdoor elements such as saltwater and pool chlorine.

CUT DOWN ON HEAT

This tip can seem like a hard one to follow, but it is actually a great excuse to let your natural beauty do its thing! Avoiding hot styling tools allows you to rock those spring or summer beach waves in their most natural state! And the best part about letting nature take its course on your hairstyle is that it requires zero effort, leaving more time for R&R. Styling tools used to achieve pin straight or bouncy curled hair cause far more damage because of the direct contact with 350-degree heat. Embrace your natural and healthy beach waves and ditch the tools!

Wherever you are right now, don’t forget to take care of yourself from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. We choose self-love for spring!
