West Kelowna Haircare Tips for Healthy Spring Locks

After a dry winter, one of the best ways to breathe life back into your hair is by using hydrating products. For instance, hair masks, deep conditioners, and gentle shampoos. Consider investing in products that aren’t harsh on your scalp and that leave some of your body’s natural oils behind. 

Additionally, washing your hair less frequently can help mitigate dryness if you’re noticing a lack of moisture in your locks. Aim for washing about 2-3 times per week for depending on your hair type and activity level. Avoiding over-washing can ensure your hair keeps some of its natural oils, preventing increased dryness. 

If you’re serious about healthifying your hair this spring, consider taking a break from your heat tools. This is one of the best and easiest ways to restore your hair. However, if you absolutely must use them, make sure that you apply a reputably branded heat protectant to lock in moisture and prevent damage. Also, do your best to keep the temperature of your hot tools to a minimum!

Another way that you can revive your hair for the new season is by getting a trim. Visiting the salon to have the dead ends of your hair taken off can help your hair grow longer, feel healthier, and look renewed. 

Besides using the right products and limiting heat, you can ensure that your hair is happy and healthy by leading a balanced lifestyle. This means eating well, exercising, staying hydrated, and limiting your stress levels. After all, too much stress is scientifically proven to cause hair loss in some people. This is because the hair follicles remain in an extended resting phase when the body produces too much cortisol. Consequently, this results in inhibited hair growth. 

How to Beat Staticky Hair in 2024?

Staticky hair is the collective bain of our existence. Waking up in the morning to your hair standing on its ends is never a good feeling. This phenomenon is often caused by dry air in your environment. Generally, this is exacerbated by things rubbing against your hair like your pillows, hats, toques, or even your brush. During the cooler weather, the air holds less moisture which in turn leads to less moisture in your hair. This results in the perfect conditions for your hair to get staticky.

While you might think that this is just a winter issue and it will be solved with warmer weather, we regret to inform you that this is not the case. In Kelowna, the summers are undoubtedly hot, but they are also very dry. Not to mention most places run air conditioners all summer long to combat the sweltering temperatures. These two factors contribute to the same favourable conditions for static electricity in your hair. 

If you want to get rid of this staticky sensation in your locks, there are a few quick remedies to try. The first one is to run a dryer sheet over your hair. Alternatively, you can use a metal comb or brush to break up static electricity from your hair. Some people say that running a metal hanger over your locks can do the trick as well! Another solution is to use hairspray or leave-in conditioner to eliminate static and keep your hair in place. 

If none of these tips works, you can always resort to a trusty up-do to keep static hair at bay and out of the way! Claw clips, high ponies, and braids are all great options to your hair out of your face on a staticky day.
