The 5 Seasons of Your Hair
In case you didn’t know, taking care of your hair is as important as taking care of your skin, face, and teeth – it’s absolutely essential for your overall well-being and flawless appearance. If you would like to know how to do it according to not four, but five seasons – stay with us. Here is the ultimate guide to the five seasons of your hair, so check it out right now!
Spring: February 1 – April 26
As you probably already know, spring is the season of detox and cleansing – both when it comes to your body and your hair. One of the things you may experience during this period is hair loss, and the truth is that we can lose up to 100 hairs a day, which is completely normal. Washing your hair every three days is a must, as well as using a green clay mask which does wonders by removing all the toxins, therefore helping your hair stay clean, shiny, and full of life.
Summer: April 27 – July 20
As soon as temperatures reach their highest, you may want to wash your hair every single day – which is more than fine, simply because of the excessive sweating that may occur on your head, under the tresses. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is absolutely obligatory, as well as protecting your hair. Jojoba oil may be extremely helpful in this period, since it treats dry scalp problems and even dandruff. Besides that, its structure is very similar to sebum, which means that your scalp will readily accept it, without messing up your locks.
Late Summer: July 21 – August 31
Late summer is the second phase of cleansing – don’t worry if dandruff shows up, because that’s a result of cell renewal that takes place in this period. If that’s the case, you can always rely on propolis shampoo which is made from the actual ingredient bees use to strengthen their hives. Apart from treating dandruff, such products are amazing for hair that’s naturally very greasy, as well as for treating scalp infections, due to its antibacterial properties. Another late summer essential is brushing, since it stimulates hair follicles and helps hair growth, while removing debris from the scalp.
Autumn: September 1 – November 29
Autumn is one of the most important seasons when it comes to hair care, simply because there’s a lot going on with your body that impacts your hair as well. First of all, your lymphatic system tends to slow down a bit, which results in losing minerals and reduced water retention. Unfortunately, that inevitably leads to itchiness, dryness, and even hair loss. Of course, this can be prevented by using hair vitamins which are essential for healthy hair from the inside out. Besides that, they will stop hair breakage and allow it to reach it maximum length. Green clay masks are a great solution again, as well as products enriched with magnesium.
Winter: November 30 – January 31
Once winter arrives, head massages should become your best friend – they’ll help your hair stay healthy and shiny, by stimulating blood flow to the scalp. Apart from that, you can always use coconut oil which promotes the growth of new hair and repairs damaged tresses. Gently massage it all over your scalp and leave it overnight; rinse it thoroughly in the morning and voila – you’ll see an instant improvement! On the other hand, you may experience hormonal hair loss during winter, but don’t worry – it happens every year, but it’s highly likely that you won’t even notice it.
Taking care of your hair according to these five seasons is definitely a method worth trying out – it really makes sense, simply because every season is characterized with its own distinctive features. So, if you decide to live by them and incorporate this method into your everyday life, you definitely won’t make a mistake!
