As the seasons change, so does our hair. Transition months can be particularly challenging for those looking to maintain their hair. The shift from cold, dry winter weather to warmer, humid spring weather can cause a range of issues like frizz, dryness, and breakage. But fear not! There are several ways you can maintain your hair during these transition months to keep it healthy and looking its best.
Moisturize your hair
One of the most important things you can do during transition months is to moisturize your hair. The cold, dry air of winter can leave your hair feeling parched and brittle. As the weather warms up and humidity increases, it's important to keep your hair hydrated. Invest in a good quality moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair hydrated and healthy. You may also want to consider using a leave-in conditioner to provide extra moisture throughout the day.
Use the Hydrate Trio by ELEVEN Australia to keep your hair hydrated during transition months. These vegan products contain cucumber extract, hydrolyzed quinoa and avocado oil to help you hydrate and nourish your hair, leaving it feeling soft and healthy.
Protect your hair from the sun
As the weather warms up, it's important to protect your hair from the sun's harmful rays. Just like your skin, your hair can be damaged by UV rays. To avoid sun damage, wear a hat or a scarf when you're outside for long periods. If you're spending the day at the beach or by the pool, consider using a leave-in conditioner with UV protection.
Our stylists recommend the Miracle Spray Hair Treatment by ELEVEN. This product provides both UVA and UVB protection and hydration for your hair and scalp.
Avoid using hot tools
Using hot tools like flat irons and curling irons can damage your hair and make it more prone to breakage. During transition months, try to avoid using hot tools as much as possible. Instead, embrace your natural hair texture or try heatless styling methods like braids, twists, or buns.
If you do need to use hot tools, be sure to use a heat protectant spray to minimize damage. We recommend the Heated Defense by Kevin Murphy. This product not only protects your hair from heat damage but also helps smoothe and detangle it.
Get regular trims
Getting regular trims is important for maintaining healthy hair, especially during transition months. As the weather changes, your hair may become more prone to split ends and breakage. Regular trims can help to prevent these issues and keep your hair looking and feeling healthy.
At Prep Hair, we recommend visiting your stylist every 6-8 weeks for a trim. This will help to keep your hair looking healthy and prevent split ends from traveling up the hair shaft. Click here to book online in the best hair salon in Winnipeg!

In conclusion, transitioning from winter to spring can be challenging for your hair, but with the right care and attention, you can keep your hair healthy and looking great. Remember to moisturize your hair, protect it from the sun, avoid using hot tools, get regular trims, and use a deep conditioning treatment to keep your hair looking its best. By following these simple tips and using quality products, you'll be able to maintain your hair during transition months and enjoy healthy, beautiful hair all year long.
