Winter is over and depending on where you are located, spring is either full blown and approaching summer, or just creeping in on you with tiny temperature changes each day. No matter where you live, you know that after a winter that lasts what seems like forever, your skin and hair need a bit of a boost, because your body doesn’t receive enough vitamins in the winter and gets abused by the winds and cold temperatures that most of us are unlucky to live in. So what can you do to rehabilitate your skin and hair as fast as possible? Well, we talked about skin in our last post, so today’s post will be dedicated strictly to hair.

There are several easy steps that will help your hair look radiant and get you out of hibernation and into the world Rejuvenate your hair:

  • Get rid of split ends as fast as possible! If you have an option to do so, have your hair cut with hot scissors, a procedure that helps prevent hair ends from splitting and will allow you to go longer until your next appointment with the stylist.
  • Say ‘No’ to blow-dryers! Though in the winter it’s difficult to not use a blow-dryer due to the fact that it’s cold outside and your hair may take hours to dry, in the spring and summer you can easily allow your hair to air dry and not subject it to any additional stresses. Trust us, your body has enough stress without you adding on.
  • Use hair masks! It is recommended that you use some type of a hair mask at least once a week. In the spring, give your preference to masks that have olive oil as the main ingredient. Olive oil is known to strengthen hair and give it a shine. There are many options for hair masks, including home remedies with egg, honey, oil, and other ingredients. But why try to come up with something at home, when you can simply order a great mask from Russian Shoppe? We have dozens that are all under $10.00!
  • Don’t underestimate the power of your hair brush! Never use a hair brush with metal bristles, it will damage your hair and make it appear thinner. Give your preference to hair brushes with natural or wooden bristles. Natural bristles help strengthen your hair and make it look healthier and shinier, without compromising the structure.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables! We all know that ‘we are what we eat’, so this last point should be understood easily. For hair health, include more strawberries, asparagus, cucumbers and beetroot into your diet. To keep your hair color longer (i.e. push back the day your hair turns gray) include seafood, eggs and nuts into your diet.

If you already have no hair, you are the lucky one! If you still do, try to follow our advice and see how long it will take for your hair to look its best.
