Hello spring! Some of us clean out our closets, some of us clean out our homes, but how many of us reevaluate our haircare routine? If you’re feeling like your hair needs some love or you want to improve the health of your hair, now is the perfect time to do it. Today, I’ll be partnering with Waterl<ss Haircare to share a few spring haircare tips.
Personally, I feel like my hair needs extra love and attention coming out of winter. The combination of the dry, cold winter air outside combined with sitting in the heated indoors sometimes left my hair feeling dry and static-y. I was so excited to spring into spring. I’m ready to refresh my hair routine and make sure my hair looks and feels good.
Here are 6 spring haircare tips with Waterl <ss Haircare:
Tip #1: Wash your hair less often
How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type, lifestyle factors, and your level of activity. If you have fine, flat hair, you might choose to wash your hair every other day. If you have thick hair, you might choose to wash your hair 2-3 times a week. I would recommend understanding your hair type to make the best decision for your hair.
Regardless of your hair type, the overall advice from experts and the hair and beauty industry have advised to avoid washing your hair every single day. Washing your hair too often can dry out your hair and strip it of its natural oils.
For those non-wash days, I recommend using Waterl<ss Haircare Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner. These are my go-to products for my non-wash days. Since I’m washing my hair about 3x a week, the rest of the week, I’m using both dry shampoo and dry conditioner to keep my hair healthy and refreshed. The dry shampoo doesn’t leave a residue and absorbs oil from my hair. I’ve completely fallen in love with the dry conditioner – it refreshes the ends of my hair and smells amazing. Try them for yourself! Pick them up in store or online at CVS here.
Tip #2: Embrace a trim
If you haven’t gotten a trim all winter season, I recommend getting a trim for spring to cut off any split, or damaged ends. Cutting off an inch (or less) will help your hair feel more refreshed and save your hair from further damage that split ends might cause.
Tip #3: Embrace an air-dry
Your hair needs a break from hot tools, ponytails, and even tight headbands. Even if you pick one the day a week or even a weekend, giving your hair time to air dry will allow your hair to rest and chill.
If you’re able to work from home, you can also pick a day during the work week where you can allow your hair to air dry. I’ve personally transitioned to working from home indefinitely, it’s been nice to let my hair dry almost every day!
Tip #4: Be gentle with your wet hair
On days you do wash your hair, remember to be gentle with your wet hair. Wet hair is vulnerable and prone to breakage. If it’s a part of your haircare routine to comb or brush your hair after you get out of the shower, be mindful that you aren’t brushing too aggressively. Make sure you’re also using a good brush or comb to detangle wet hair.
Tip #5: Eat a balanced diet
One way to refresh your haircare routine and work towards getting healthy hair is to make sure you’re eating a balanced diet. Spinach has vitamin C, Vitamin A, and other nutrients like iron and folate which may help with hair growth. Avocadoes are also a great source of healthy fats and Vitamin E – which may also promote hair growth and protect areas of the skin.

Tip #6: Wear a hat to protect your hair from the sun
I personally love the longer spring days and the sunshine. But it’s important to know that your hair and skin still need sun protection. An easy way to protect your hair from UV rays is by wearing a hat. If you have color treated hair, the sun can shift your hair color. But even if your hair isn’t color treated, the sun can still cause dryness.
