In the last month, life has changed drastically for all of us. Many businesses, including salons, have halted service until it is safe to resume operation. Thankfully, there are many ways to care for your hair while at home.
1.Conceal Your Roots With Beauty Products
If your roots are starting to show, there are some easy ways to conceal them with beauty products you probably already have lying around the house.
Dark hair: For those looking to cover their roots with a darker color, try mascara! The dark tint will help blend your roots and cover up those pesky grey or blondes.
Red or Blonde hair: The best brush tint for lighter hair colors tends to be a brow tint. That is because unlike mascara, brow tints come in a wide variety of colors that will better match the different shade and hair tones.
Light Blonde: Baby powder can work as both a dry shampoo and a root-covering serum for lighter blonde hair. Sprinkle a small amount on your hands and rub the powder through your roots. Make sure not to use too much, or it can turn your hair (and your part) white.
2. Make Your Hair Healthier
With everyone staying at home, there is no better time to give your hair a break. Excessive drying, curling, dying, and washing can all damage your locks in the long run. If you are someone who washes your hair daily, take this time to start training it for intermittent washing throughout the week. If you are typically someone who curls or straightens your hair, take this time to let your natural hair shine.
3. Put The Scissors Away
As much as your hair might be driving you crazy, leave the cutting to the professionals. Remember, not only will you save yourself from a potential hair-nightmare, but your stylist will truly appreciate your business once the lockdowns clear. It doesn’t matter how many youtube videos you watch; haircutting is a profession that takes time and skill to master. And remember, the stay-at-home orders may feel like forever, but your hair will not fix itself by the time the world resumes.
4. Don’t Use Permanent Store-Bought Hair Dye
If you are leaning toward dying your own hair, remember the consequences can be costly. If the color doesn’t turn out, when you visit your hairstylist, coloring correcting can end up costing hundreds of dollars. If you do opt-in to go for at-home color, choose a dye that is considered temporary.
5. Use This Time to Spoil Yourself and You Hair
Many products can benefit the overall health of your hair, and now is the perfect time to nurture those locks. Some of these you might already have in your house. For example, taking a daily shot of Apple Cider Vinegar is great for your overall health, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. Black Seed Oil is another all-natural serum that can help hair growth and health. Simply take a few drops and apply to your roots about five minutes before washing.
