Due to current restrictions put in place because of COVID-19, your next trip to the salon may be delayed a little while. You might be finding yourself with more time on your hands to sleep in or take up a new hobby – unfortunately, it also means that your hair routine will experience a bit of a disruption. There’s no need to panic, however! We are here to show you that this extra time can be used to take good care of your hair. Whether it’s growing out your hair colour or reviving those dry ends, isolation isn’t all bad and you will be back in the salon in no time!
Growing out colour
Hair colour is a commitment that involves regular trips to the salon to maintain. While we are just as upset as you, growing out your colour for the time being will do wonders for your hair health (and your wallet!). Growing out ombre and balayage is an easy process that will happen naturally while you can’t visit a salon. While growing out highlights and bleached hair is a little more tricky, it gives your hair time to reset and have a break from harsh chemicals.
Take a break from the heat
If you are someone who regularly heat styles their hair, consider this a great opportunity to give your locks a break! It can be hard to lay off the heat when you have regular events and social commitments, so now is a great time to let your hair be. Excessive use of heat styling tools can lead to dry, damaged ends that are more susceptible to breakage. A break from your straightener or curling iron will improve the health of your hair drastically – your post isolation locks will thank you!
Time for some hair care
As some of you will have a little more time on your hands, it’s a great opportunity to really take care of your hair. Take the time to do a treatment or deep conditioning mask a couple of times per week and use a high-quality hair oil to keep the ends hydrated. You can even give yourself a scalp massage to stimulate blood flow. Now is the time to really take care of yourself and your locks will look better than ever.
Leave it to the professionals
During a time like this, it can be tempting to take matters into your own hands. Between needing a haircut, being desperate for a dye job, or simply feeling bored, we know it can be hard to fight the urge to change up your hair yourself. Remember that this time will pass and you will be able to visit a salon soon! A DIY haircut or colour can go wrong very quickly and even damage your hair. We definitely recommend leaving it to the experts and we will see you again in no time!
