In winter, our hair is covered in a hat most of the time. Hairstyles, color or styling are of secondary importance. But when the first rays of sun tickle our noses and the cherry blossom trees are blooming outside, then it is high time for our hair to bloom again! What saves lifeless, flat hair? In addition to an extra dose of moisture and care, the hair needs more power and volume again. Batiste’s dry shampoo refreshes hair without drying it out. Batiste has the right care for every hair type and brings fresh momentum to the mane. With these simple tips, the spring hair routine will be a success!
Define individual hair care
Before we can give our hair a freshness kick for spring, it is important to determine your hair type. If you want to treat your hair to the best possible care, you also have to know your hair type. The following questions can help: How often do I have to wash my hair? How quickly does it regrease? Is my hair unruly and flat? Do I have split ends? Is my hair lacking shine? How much hair is left in my hairbrush after combing? These questions provide information about what hair needs and how it can be optimally cared for. But there is one thing that almost all women have in common: their hair longs for moisture!
Moisturizing treatment for the hair
Dry heating air in combination with icy temperatures really damaged the hair. The result: dry ends, split ends and brittle hair. Last but not least, the hair has lost its shine and is powerless. Before summer announces itself with intense heat, spring is the ideal time to pep up your hair with moisture. Now you might think: a moisturizing conditioner after washing your hair is enough. However, many do not know that a conditioner only protects the hair for a short time and does not penetrate as deeply as a hair treatment does. This not only works superficially but also repairs the hair structure in the substance.
As a result, the hair stays healthy longer! So the first and easiest step to spring-fresh hair is to incorporate a hair treatment into your hair routine. Experts advise pampering your hair with a cure once or twice a week. The treatment is massaged into damp hair and washed out again after an exposure time of 5-10 minutes. You can make one with yogurt and honey; simply mix your own hair treatment. The milk protein contained in yogurt is similar in structure to the fiber protein keratin, which strengthens the hair structure, while honey is a natural moisturizer. Caution: If the hair looks very limp and weak, it can also mean too much care. In this case, a hair treatment every two weeks is sufficient.
Time out for your hair
Our hair can withstand a lot: environmental influences, blow-drying, styling, heat. Even when washing your hair, mistakes creep in: Those who wash too often stimulate the scalp’s sebum production so that the hair is regreased more quickly. The same thing happens if you massage the scalp too hard while washing. In order to be able to bloom again in spring, it is important to give the hair a break so that it can regenerate again. In the warmer temperatures, it is easier to forego blow-drying and heat and instead let your hair air dry. If you have thick hair that takes a long time to dry, it is better to blow-dry it on the lowest heat setting. Daily hair washes are also not necessary.
A quick and convenient way to freshen up your hair between washes is to use dry shampoo. The Batiste Dry Shampoo Original combats an oily build-up and revitalizes the hair so that it looks fresher and fuller. The natural rice starch contained in the dry shampoo is responsible for this. This removes excess sebum from the hair without leaving any residue. The persistent rumor still lingers that dry shampoos contain many chemical additives. Batiste products focus on naturalness: They are free from silicone, parabens, sulfates, palm oil and microplastics. If you pay attention to these dos and don’ts when using dry shampoo, nothing can go wrong!
Hair oil against dry ends and split ends
The dry ends of the hair usually need the most care and attention – hair oil is ideal here. It not only supplies the tips with moisture, but also wraps around the hair like a protective shield so that it is protected from external influences. At the same time, it provides a natural shine and the hair feels softer.
There are many options when choosing hair oil: Coconut oil is particularly suitable for dry hair as it is rich in saturated fatty acids. Jojoba oil also penetrates deep into the hair follicles and supplies it with moisture. It also contains vitamin E and zinc, which accelerate hair growth. The hair oil develops its best effect when it is applied to the tips when the hair is dry. If you also rub a fingertip of the oil into the lengths of your hair and then brush it through, you will benefit from a natural shine.

Nutrients and vitamins for healthy hair
A voluminous and shiny mane does not only depend on good care. Our diet also has a decisive influence on how our hair looks. In order to avoid hair breakage and instead stimulate hair growth, vitamins such as iron, zinc, biotin, folic acid and vitamin C are very important. Vitamin C helps the body to produce collagen. Collagen, in turn, is broken down in the body into amino acids that stimulate hair growth. Those who do not want to take nutritional supplements can find the nutrients in the following foods: red lentils, blueberries, strawberries, carrots, oatmeal, fish, green salads and nuts. Fortunately, in spring, we want to eat fresh and healthy food again!
Conceal and freshen up the hairline
But even if the hair is shiny and supple – as soon as the gray hairline shines through, none of this helps. When the color or tint starts to grow out, you immediately feel uncomfortable and neglected. Bad Hair Day sends its regards! What is still hidden in the hat in winter cannot be so easily covered in spring – or can it? Batiste has a solution for this: The Batiste Dark dry shampoo is provided with dark hair pigments that combine perfectly with your hair color. With the dry shampoos, Beautiful Brunette and Brilliant Blondethere is also a solution for blonde and brown hair.
The annoying approach is concealed in a natural way and is less noticeable. It also gives the hair a kick of freshness and volume so that you automatically feel more comfortable! Simply spray on the hairline, massage in and brush out. This dry shampoo hack is ideal for bridging the waiting time for the next hairdresser appointment and for feeling more confident with the next home office call.
Fun fact: In the past, people used sand or flour as a dry shampoo. The fat was bound in the hair by the contained silicate. Of course, it left a layer of powder on the hair that was clearly visible. Fortunately, we no longer have these worries today!
Hair fragrance for spring fever
What does spring smell like? Right – for flowers. And especially after a flower: the cherry blossom. We meet her on every walk. The right fragrance should not be missing for the perfect hair care routine in spring. If you are not comfortable spraying perfume on your hair, you can use the Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry. It not only gives the hair a sweet cherry scent, but also cares for it at the same time. This conjures up spring fever right at home.
Use sun protection
In spring, UV radiation is not as strong as in summer, but it should not be underestimated. The radiation penetrates the keratin layer and damages it, making the hair more prone to breakage. It also bleaches our hair – both the pigments in the coloration and the natural dyes in the hair. And finally, everyone knows that sunburn on the scalp can be really painful. So if you want to enjoy the spring sun, use a sun protection spray beforehand. In principle, this works in a similar way to sunscreen on our skin. By the way: just as light skin is the quickest to get sunburned, blonde hair is particularly susceptible to UV radiation.
Easy spring hairstyles
Finally, the hair is no longer flattened by a hat, but can be presented again. If open hair is too boring for you in the long run, you can try a few simple hairstyles. Classics are the French braid, half buns or cool braided hairstyles such as boxer braids. Flowery hairbands or flower wreaths can also be combined to go with spring. A lack of skill in braiding or styling can be avoided with the Batiste volume dry shampoo be balanced.
It gives the hair more grip and structure so that it is easier to style and the strands of hair do not “slip” through the fingers. Before styling, the dry shampoo is sprayed from about 20 to 30 centimeters onto the hairline and the areas of hair that need a volume boost. After a short exposure time, massage in with your fingers and then brush out.
Now your hair is ready!
