With spring right around the corner, your house isn’t the only thing that can benefit from some major cleaning. As you pack away your winter clothes and swap out your fluffy comforter for lightweight sheets, you should also update your spring hair care routine.

Just as winter comes with its own set of hair woes, so does spring. Thankfully, dealing with aforementioned woes is as simple as swapping out your winter hair products for spring-friendly versions. Not sure how to update your haircare routine? Cory Hoffman, Matrix brand ambassador and stylist, is here to fill you in on everything you need to know about the right way to change your hair care routine with the seasons.

How do your hair needs change from winter to spring?

Most people spend the winter months doing their very best to keep their hair looking and feeling as moisturized as possible. However, your hair may not need the same amount of moisture as the temperature begins to rise and the wind becomes less harsh.

By the time spring comes around, the hair doesn’t need as much heavy moisture and can sometimes feel weighed down.

You may not have to deal with dry locks as the moisture begins to return to the air, but that doesn’t mean caring for your hair in spring doesn’t come with its own set of challenges. Hoffman says many of her clients struggle with flat or frizzy hair because of the humidity in the air. The stylist says women with fine manes are particularly susceptible to dealing with limp, frizzy hair during the springtime.

What winter hair care products can you continue using in spring?

Even though spring comes with its own set of hair concerns, you don’t have to ditch your favorite winter hair care products completely. Hoffman says products like Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Hair Mask can be used all year round.

The stylist also says you don’t typically have to swap out your shampoo and conditioner from season to season.

What is an ideal spring hair care routine?

Hoffman says the ideal spring hair care routine is quite simple, recommending products from Matrix Biolage. The stylist recommends shampooing with a product like SmoothProof Shampoo followed by a lightweight conditioner like HydraSource Aqua-Gel Conditioner, to help moisturize strands without weighing them down.

Follow your shampoo and conditioner with a leave-in treatment like Hydrasource Daily Leave-In Tonic which nourishes your hair with light moisture as it primes and protects your strands.

As for her favorite styling product, Hoffman is all about volume for spring.

“I like to style with the Volumebloom Full-Lift Volumizer Spray for touchable volume,” she says.

While this springtime hair care routine only covers the basic hair care products, Hoffman recommends personalizing your routine with products that address your specific hair needs.

“One of my favorite things about Biolage is that there is something for any hair type and need,” the stylist says.

If you have curly hair, pick up Curl Defining Elixir which delivers lasting curl control to create beautiful shiny curls. If you can’t get enough of your blow dryer, try BlowDry Glotion which protects hair from heat damage up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you arm yourself with the right hair products and follow Hoffman’s hair care routine, you’ll have flawless hair all spring long.
