If you’re considering changing your look, there’s no better time to do so than spring. But how do you keep up with the latest trends without ruining your hair? This is especially important information coming into spring, when your hair can be dry, brittle and recovering from the winter blues. Whether you’re a trendsetter, or just need advice on your everyday routine, here are Silicea’s tips to achieving healthy and trendy hair this spring.

If you have curly hair…

Whether you’re having a picnic or going to a party, effortless, natural curls are always a gorgeous look in spring. But keeping your hair bouncy and voluminous is no small challenge. When it comes to your curls, make sure you wash your hair with the right shampoo and conditioner to give them the right shape. Try using a leave-in conditioner, then comb out any tangles and finish with a styling product with a strong hold to support the volume. Wide tooth combs are your friend and will help keep your beautiful curls intact. You could also use a diffuser when blow drying your hair for a softer, smoother look.

If you’re getting a new colour…

We all know a new season means a new you, so lightening your hair colour to give you an instant beach babe feeling is often a go to in spring. Whether it’s blonde, bronde, or a few extra foils, make sure you take a break from heat appliances to help your locks recover. To avoid damaging and drying out your mane, prep your hair with heat protecting spray or a formulated serum for dry hair. Silicea supplements can also help strengthen your hair when taking on bold, new colours.

If you have short hair…

As temperatures warm up towards the end of the year, short hair is a great solution to beat the summer heat and avoid that unwanted feeling of matted, sweaty hair. If you’re opting for a stylish bob or mid-length haircut, avoid overloading on products and harsh chemicals to help your hair retain its natural beauty. Some products, when used frequently over a long period can cause harm, so make sure you use the right amount. Whether your bob is voluminous or sleek, try adding a small amount of styling product before drying your hair (gel for a voluminous bob and a straightening balm for a sleek, straight bob).

If you have long hair…

We all want mermaid hair but we also know it’s often a struggle to achieve a healthy mane as you grow it. Keep up with regular trims to keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant. To retain your lovely locks ensure you let your natural oils sock in; over washing your hair will cause it to dry out and break. The longer and curlier your hair is the longer you can wait between washes.

If you have straight hair…

Healthy, straight hair is often the desire of many, but obtainable by a few. When maintained, it can be a great sleek style that will take you from day to night. To maintain this look, brush your hair before showering to avoid knots and tangles, which can cause breakage. When it comes to style, a little bit of texture goes a long way to avoid your look becoming flat or bland. Try using a soft styling cream for a natural look with movement. If you’re feeling daring, you could try a textured shag the next time you visit your hairdresser.

You can keep up with the latest trends and still rock a healthy, natural look so make sure you take care of your locks. To find out more on how Silicea products can help to support your healthy and shiny looking hair from the inside out, head to www.silicea.com.au for our full product range.
