Blossom Into Beautiful Hair This Spring

Spring has arrived, and with it comes a renewed sense of beauty and vitality! At Umthi, we're committed to helping you embrace the season with hair that blooms as beautifully as the flowers outside. Here are six tips to help your hair blossom this spring: 

1. Pamper Your Scalp

Winter can be a bad time for dry hair and scalps. Woolly hats and extreme weather can sometimes cause hair breakage. On the other hand, dry indoor air can dehydrate the scalp further. Show your scalp some love by indulging in a weekly scalp massage using nourishing oils like jojoba, avocado, or apricot kernel. Massaging your scalp promotes blood circulation and helps distribute natural oils, resulting in healthier, shinier hair. Give your hair and scalp the boost that it deserves by using a hair oil before shampooing. Run a pipette of oil over the scalp and brush right through to the ends, leave to soak right in to nourish the scalp follicles and restore the hair's natural shine.


Best product for scalp health: Umthi Restorative Hair Oil has a blend of seven oils and herbs that benefit the scalp and promote hair growth. 

2. Detoxify Your Scalp:

Like spring cleaning your home, your scalp also deserves a thorough cleanse to remove build up from styling products and environmental pollutants. As the weather improves, we are prone to do more exercise, swimming, hiking, riding bikes, or enjoying nature. However, these pursuits also introduce more sweat and other radicals to the hair and scalp. Consider using a clarifying shampoo formulated with gentle but effective ingredients that are sulphate-free. This will help rebalance your scalp's pH levels and promote optimal hair health. Research shows that Afro hair should be washed at least once a week to optimise health and hair growth. 

We recommend a suitable moisturising shampoo: Umthi Restorative Shampoo is the best choice especially if you double shampoo during excessive sweating and exposure to environmental pollutants. 

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: 

With the transition from colder to warmer weather, your hair may need extra hydration to combat dryness.  Look for products containing nourishing botanicals like hibiscus, amla, or marshmallow root, known for their revitalising and strengthening properties and which are enriched with botanical oils like andiroba, meadowfoam and argan. Consider incorporating a nourishing hair mask into your routine. These natural ingredients will replenish moisture, leaving your hair soft and silky. 

Best products for hydration Umthi Restorative conditioner has a botanical-infused treatment to revive dull, lacklustre locks and restore their natural radiance. These natural ingredients will help fortify your hair from root to tip, leaving it looking and feeling healthier.

4. Detangle your hair gently:

Detangling hair should be a slow and gentle process using the right tools that will minimise damage. A great way to test if the comb or brush that you are using is the right tool for you, run it along the back of your hand. If it leaves any scratch marks, it is time for an upgrade. If you're detangling wet hair in the shower, make sure that conditioner is applied to the lengths and ends to add extra slip. For very tangled hair, start with the ends a few inches at a time and work your way up to the roots. 

Best product for smoother detangling: Umthi Green Sandalwood Comb has a smooth finish and extra wide teeth for a more gentle approach. 

5. Minimise Heat Styling


Give your hair a break from heat styling tools and embrace your natural texture this Spring! Air-drying your hair not only saves time but also minimises damage caused by excessive heat. To enhance your hair's natural waves or curls, apply a leave-in conditioner or styling cream while your hair is still damp. This will help define your hair's texture and keep it looking effortlessly chic all season long. Experiment with heat-free hairstyles like braids, buns, or twists to keep your hair looking stylish and healthy.

Remember, healthy hair starts from within, so nourish your body with a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Drink lots of water and eat fruits like watermelon and cucumber. You can even make your water more exciting by infusing it with slices of lemon or cucumber. With these simple yet effective tips, you can welcome the season with hair that blooms as beautifully as the flowers outside!
