The short answer is no but some hairstylists actually recommend that you switch up your hair products for seasonal skin purposes. In the winter, it is understood that your hair and scalp tends to be dry and then spring and summer tip toe in, we look for ways to protect our strands from the sun and humidity.
If you are living somewhere with dramatic temperatures, you should aim to buy cleansing products since your hair is exposed to damaging agents like the sun, chlorine. To soothe possible sun burned scalp, you will want botanical ingredients that shield your hair from harm.
For cool to cold weather, pick the products with “moisturizing” or “hydrating in the title. Winter is when your scalp is most dehydrated. We suggest almond butter based products and oil-based formulas help lock in moisture. With that said it is very necessary to switch your products up during the seasons.
Does your hair get used to products after awhile?
Most would say your hair tends to get used to certain products after awhile but this is not entirely true. Many factors can cause you to consider changing your products: health changes, lifestyle changes, and climate changes.
This is not your hair getting used to products but rather you using common sense about your hair’s needs. Are you working out more? Have you changed (cut or colored) your hair? Are you a swimmer? These lifestyles changes call for adjustments in your hair products accordingly.
Should you buy new products every month?
You just need two or more brands you can alternate between each other. As a matter of fact it is okay to mix and match your shampoo and conditioner. Brands nowadays are formulating all of their products to work together however at the end of the day, the ingredients on the back of the product is what matters.
If you are noticing your products are not performing like they should anymore, remember to consider what has changed in your lifestyle, or the whether and then solve accordingly. Your hair will be in need of different things at different times and this is what determines the products that you choose.

Phoenix McGee says
I haven’t found in necessary to do so. In fact, I freak out a little when I run out of my conditioner and shampoo and the store doesn’t have any stocked.
