1.) Give it a cut, and make it a big one.
After months of dull weather, hats and air-conditioning hair starts to look dried out, the ends look split andtired, and overall your 'do looks a little lifeless, so there is no time like the present to give it a really good, substantial cut. Spring is a great time to either go for that whole new look you've been thinking about, or if you're staying with the same style as you had before, get a really good cut, and unload all the excess weight and damage that you've been dragging around.
2.) Invest in some really good treatment masks and/or deep treatment conditioners.
Ask your stylist which products are best for your type of hair, and which products are actually going to penetrate the shaft of the hair. A conditioning treatment that just sits on the surface of the hair shaft isn't going to do you that much good.
Its also a great time to think about a keratin treatment or a Brazilian blowout to keep hair smooth, manageable and luscious as the warm weather, sunshine and humidity approach.
Sometimes change is good! Your hair may have become used to the products in your current regimen, or maybe it requires something different for the new season. Again talk to your stylist and get recommendations for which products are best for your particular hair type.
Using the right products can make all the difference when it comes to how your cut or color wears.
4.) Change up your color.

Trade out lowlights for highlights. Lighten, brighten and excite your winter look with color. Work with colors that maximize the shape of your cut, and that lighten and brighten your face.
