Cold winter weather can make your hair feel dry and brittle. How do you prepare your winter hair for a new bright hair color in spring? 

Healthy, evenly moisturized hair is one of the most important factors to achieving an even color from root to tip. Throughout winter, but especially from mid-March on, is the time for deep conditioning treatments. Winter hair equals dry hair and the best way to prepare your hair for Spring is to keep it hydrated. We recommend using Color&Co’s Infuse Replenishing Conditioner as a mask once a week for 2 – 4 weeks depending on how parched your hair is.  For extra conditioning we recommend you leave it on for 20 minutes. 

Spring is a great time to brighten your red hair, warm up your dull brown hair or cool down your brassy blonde by trying a demi-permanent, ammonia-free shade. These colors are gentle on your dry winter strands and will give you amazing shine to boot. A huge benefit to using a demi-permanent shade in the spring is that they gradually fade out with each shampoo allowing for an easier highlight service as summer approaches. 

Keep in mind that summer can be even harsher on your hair than winter. Give your locks a little TLC throughout spring to keep it looking healthy and fresh year-round: avoid shampoos that are not sulfate-free, lower the temperature on those irons, and embrace your natural texture by skipping blow-dries on warm days.
