The Perfect Way to Take Care of Your Hair during Quarantine

As many of us are spending a significant amount of time in the confines of our own homes, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought what better time to give you some awesome tips on hair treatments that you can do at home. And if our incredible website is your preferred method for purchasing professional hair products, you won’t even have to leave the couch!

Here are a few of our favourite quarantine hair care tips for lustrous, healthy, and beautiful locks.

1. Use Natural Ingredients

As I’m sure we can all relate, there’s honestly nothing worse than gearing up for your morning hair care routine only to find an empty bottle of shampoo sitting in the shower. Worry no more, we have a solution to fill in the gaps while your friend from Australia Post hurries to get that much-needed refill to you pronto. It might not be the first thought that comes to mind, but your pantry can offer natural ingredients for hair care. Aloe vera and coconut milk, for example, can be used as a mask that will nourish the scalp and your hair. You can also use olive oil, argan oil and black seed oil to strengthen your hair and give it a soft and shiny look. When using one of the aforementioned oils, avoid applying it directly to your hairline, but rather, massage a small portion onto your ends.

2. Skip Shampooing Every Night and Start Washing Your Hair Right

Now is the right time to skip your daily hair wash as you don’t have to go anywhere. Even though we love our wonderful hair products, giving your hair a little break from shampooing will help to preserve the natural oils in the scalp and keeps your hair well moisturized. Shampooing your hair only twice a week while you are in quarantine will give your hair a much-needed break. With the extra time on your hand rethink your hair washing routine and find out if you have been washing your hair the right way.

3. Deep Condition Your Hair

A great way to treat your hair is deep conditioning. Simply take any conditioner you use and apply it to the ends of your hair. Wear a shower cap and keep the conditioner in your hair for around 45 minutes. Rinse with water and don’t shampoo. You will get extra shine and your hair will be much smoother and more manageable. If you don’t have a conditioner, check out our online store for highly recommended products.

4. Say Goodbye to the Heating Tools 

Again, you don’t have to go out anywhere. Use this as an opportunity to give your hair a break from all the heating and styling tools you usually use. Quit using a dryer and let your hair air dry. Don’t blow-dry, straighten, or curl. If you have to use a heating tool, don’t forget to use a heat-protectant product so that your hair doesn’t get damaged from overheating. Simple hair care during quarantine will help you get the shine, smoothness, and strength back to your hair.

5. Time to Try New Styles

 Spending a lot of time at home gives us the chance to focus on the health of our hair, but it also provides us with the time to try out styles that we always wanted to try. Curl your hair the way you want it, search online for trendy new hairstyles or try out one of our hair tutorials. If it goes well, snap a photo for your Instagram, and if it doesn’t go as planned you can just keep it to yourself and no one will ever know.

TIP:
