Use Quarantine To Bring Your Hair Back To Life

As many cities and non-essential businesses remain closed in the interest of quarantining, one of the biggest points of discourse has been hair maintenance. People seem really struck by their inability to get a haircut, which is pretty important to the health of your growing locks. While visiting a salon might not be an option, there is a bright side to the quarantine as it pertains to hair.

A lack of socialization has given tons of hair tool addicts a break from constant styling. In the interest of finding silver linings within this confusing time, it’s worthwhile to consider using isolation to nurse your hair back to life. This way, when you finally can get back into the salon, your hair will be at its peak. Here are ways you can use isolation to bring your hair back to life!

Deny The Dye

Now is a great time to let your roots run wild. Because we’re spending most of our time at home, there’s not really a need to look your best. Not only will you be saving money, but you’ll allow your hair to go through a few cycles without dye or root touch-ups, which is ultimately really healthy for your lovely locks.

If you are concerned about the look of your growing roots, you can always use some Hair Veil! It’s a product which touches up roots and also gives your scalp a fuller appearance. It’s a win-win (and something you can enjoy post-quarantine as well).

Put The Tools Down

As hair tool lovers, we can understand how difficult it is to put the heated tools away. We love them just as much as you do! But, using this time wisely means giving your hair a break from the heat.

Trust us, your hair will thank you in the end. But, we know it’s not easy. If you must engage with your tools, why not give them a nice cleaning? That way, when you’re back to your daily styling, you can do it with fresh tools!

Skip Washes

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for your hair is skip the wash. Shampoo often strips hair of essential oils and it can dry it out. The more washes you can manage to skip, the better off your hair will be!

That greasy look is actually quite therapeutic for your strands, despite how unsightly it might be at times. But now is the time to embrace that! Let the grease live for a little bit while you are in quarantine… we won’t tell anyone. Your secret is safe with us!

Nourish Your Hair

While you’ve got some down time, why not invest in a little self-care? It’s a great time to do an at-home conditioner, or spend some cash on a hair revival system that you can do at home. You’ll still be saving money, as you’re not going to be spending it at the salon.

Get a Good Brush

This is something you should have done before isolation, but it’s kind of a secret in haircare. So many folks don’t know that their brush or combs could be totally damaging their hair. This is especially true if you are brushing your hair while it is wet. The wrong brush could lead to thinning, pulling out hair, and serious damage.

Start a Hair Diet

When it comes to hair, you really are what you eat. You’d be surprised at how much your diet can change your hair. However, unlike most diets, a healthy hair diet allows for a lot of yummy things!

For stronger, thicker, and faster-growing hair, grab some foods with protein, biotin, antioxidants, or beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids. Okay, we know we threw a lot at you just now. If you aren’t a total foodie, here’s a list of awesome hair foods so you can go nuts at the grocery store. Oh and also, buy some nuts!

● Nuts
● Berries
● Eggs
● Seafood
● Avocados
● Sweet Potatoes
● Meat

On any given day, a woman spends a good deal of time on her hair: washing, drying, curling, clipping, brushing, and styling. And nobody wants to see the drain clogged with hair or witness clumps of it in the brush. Our hair is our crown, and it's hard to watch it crumble and fall into the sink. But some amount of shedding (around 15-100 strands per day) is normal.
