Making the transition from Winter to Spring is often a welcome process for many people; out with the sweaters and in with the tank-tops! However, the coming Spring and Summer months also signal a change not just in your wardrobe, but in your hair-care as well. Seamlessly transition your haircare regiment from the cold winter months to the bright spring months with these Spring hair tips.

It’s Time for a Spring Snip!

The frigid winter months can often do a number to your hair, especially if you have not taken the extra time to properly condition and moisturize your hair. The cold temperatures damage and fray the ends of your hair, which can leave a lot of split ends on your hair. Combat these split ends by starting the spring off with a healthy trim! We’re not talking a major cut or style change, but a simple trim will leave your hair looking healthy and fresh for the Spring and Summer months.

Fight the Frizzy Monthswoman with hair highlights

We have a few great recommendations on our products page for solid haircare products to help fight the frizz. Bumble and Bumble and Kevin Murphy carry a wide selection of deep moisturizers, leave-in treatment oils, and conditioners to help your hair look and feel as voluminous and frizz-free as possible. We recommend Bumble and Bumble’s Super Rich Conditioner, which will help add texture, density, and luster to all types of hair. There are many anti-frizz serums on the market that also provide another level of protection in your fight against the frizz. There are also many anti-humidity sprays. Just spray one of these products along the roots to garner a healthy new look.

Lighten Your Load

The Spring and Summer months are the best time to get highlights, as they’ll match the sunny weather and your sunny disposition! At Salon 833, we offer partial highlights, full highlights, single color services, and Balayage highlights. Balayage is a hand-done technique that can leave your hair looking naturally sun-kissed, as opposed to the foil-method of traditional highlighting techniques. Ask your stylist which highlighting technique will work best for you!

If you are not a fan of highlights, then we recommend a shampoo with UV-protecting characteristics. This can also help keep your highlights longer if your hair has been color-treated.

After the Pool

Spring and Summer are full of pool parties and ocean adventures! However, the chlorine in pools can treat your hair rather harshly; this is why we recommend using a clarifying shampoo soon after you leave the party. As an extra protective measure, you can try coating your hair in conditioner before you hit the pool, which will reduce the amount of water that your hair absorbs.
