At Home Hair Tips and Advice
During the isolation period it’s so important to look after your hair to ensure it remains in the best condition possible. Although you will not be able to visit the salon for a regular trim to get rid of split ends, there are some things you can do at home to keep split ends and hair breakages at bay until your next appointment.
Conditioning shampoos and conditioners are a must during this time to give hair the nourishment it needs, as well as regular hair masks a couple of times a week to give your hair extra conditioning and to seal in hair colour. Hair masks works to keep hair colour long-lasting and looking as vibrant as possible until your next salon appointment.
If you have any natural oils around the house (coconut, almond etc.) these can be used to give your hair a hot oil rinse and more of an intense hair treatment if your hair starts to feel dry and look dull. Simply heat the oil up and apply to your hair. Leave this on for a few minutes and once you have rinsed your hair, it will instantly feel softer and healthier. Alternatively, apply the oil throughout the hair and comb through to allow for even distribution. Tie your hair up in a bun and leave this overnight to give your hair a conditioning treat and allow it to feel and look smooth and shiny.
To avoid frizz, after blow-drying your hair so it is 100% dry, blast your hair with cold air from the hairdryer, as this helps to remove humidity and frizz from the hair. Ensure the nozzle is pointed downwards whilst you do this for your hair to be as smooth as possible. Serums and oils are also beneficial when it comes to combatting frizz, as they will smooth the hair down, get rid of any flyaways you have and create a sleek, soft finish. Serums and oils can be applied to damp hair prior to blow-drying to seal split ends and condition the hair further and also after you’ve finished styling your hair to get rid of any frizz and to give hair a shiny finish.
Another tip to get your hair looking and feeling as healthy as possible is to avoid using heated styling tools! Give your hair a break from heat and instead, experiment with effortless updos such as ponytails, braids and buns. If you have to blow-dry your hair, ensure you always use a heat protection spray to make sure your hair is protected. Avoiding heated styling tools will also prolong your hair colour!
Lastly, try not to wash your hair too much, as this also strips hair colour. Instead, stick to washing your hair only a couple of times a week and if your hair needs a refresh in between, use a dry shampoo.
