WESTEND Hair Salon in Glasgow Share Aveda’s Top Spring Beauty Tips
Spring is upon us! The season of rebirth and renewal is one of our favourites at WESTEND Hair salon in Glasgow, and it always inspires us to embrace a fresh perspective and maybe even tackle some spring cleaning – even in our beauty routines.
You spring clean your house, why not apply the same practices to your bathroom cabinet? Keep what works, discard old or expired products and take inventory of what you need. Switch up products as the weather changes, whether that’s with a brighter lipstick or a lighter moisturiser. For an even deeper dive, book in for a relaxing service at our Glasgow hair salon to help revitalise your hair, skin and scalp. The beginning of a new season is the perfect time to declutter and debut a fresh you.
Here, AVEDA guides us on how we spring clean our Beauty routine…
Step 1: Declutter
Decluttering is trending. Think about it this way: If you have hair or skin care products taking up space that don’t work for you or makeup colors that you never reach for, go through them and toss anything old or give some to your friends or coworkers. (If you’re throwing anything away, make sure you check out how to recycle it first!) As you say goodbye to clutter, they may find a new product to love. You can also donate products; many women’s shelters will accept beauty products, as long as they’re unopened and unused. The beautiful cycle is that the products get a new life after you, so don’t feel bad about letting go!
Step 2: Make Seasonal Swaps
When the weather warms up, you may find your winter moisturizer or hair care products feel a little heavier than usual. It’s time to lighten up! One thing you should never sacrifice? Sunscreen! Sunscreen is necessity all year round, so if it’s time for a fresh bottle of Daily Light Guard SPF 30, you know where to find us! Here are a few swaps we always recommend at our Glasgow hair salon:
Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Rich Crème to Hydrating Soft Crème
Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and/or Conditioner to Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo and/or Conditioner
Heavy matte foundation to Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisture
Composition Oil to Body Moisturizer
Step 3: Start From Scratch With Your Scalp
Your scalp is probably feeling the after-effects of the cold and dry winter weather right about now. Here’s how to bring it back to life in three easy steps:
1. Exfoliate with the Pramãsana Exfoliating Scalp Brush to remove buildup and promote microcirculation. Use it on a dry scalp daily, massaging in a slow, gentle circular motion. The brush is lightweight, with looped bristles to thoroughly massage without tangling your hair.
2. Next, apply the Purifying Scalp Cleanser to your scalp, wet or dry. Massage in as you would a shampoo but focus on your scalp, not your hair. Rinse, then follow with your usual shampoo and conditioning routine. The Scalp Cleanser Deeply, yet gently cleanses and purifies the scalp to help instantly balance sebum levels and leaves your scalp feeling refreshed and invigorated.
3. Finish with the Protective Scalp Concentrate, which helps balance sebum levels and protects your scalp from aggressors like pollution and free radicals. Once your hair is clean and damp, part it in sections and apply the Concentrate to your scalp, then massage in.
If your hair needs a refresh, reach for Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Weightless Conditioner, which gently clarify hair and add body and shine.
