We are looking at the next while as the ideal time to solidify healthy hair habits. With more time on our hands and a strong desire to maintain a sense of routine, it’s the perfect time to make some hair-related habit changes. Here are 5 changes we are making to ensure that our hair comes out of quarantine healthier than ever. Keep reading to get inspired:
Healthy Hair Habits
1. Stretch out the time between washes.
It’s no secret that the more you wash your hair, the drier it can become. While we’re not advocating for greasy and oily hair, we are saying that this is the perfect time to train your hair to last longer in between washes. If you’re having a hard time dealing with greasiness, try Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Juice Grapefruit Day 2 Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo will absorb excess oil and get you through this transition in one piece.
2. Cool it with the hot tools.
While there are many precautions you can take to ensure that your hair doesn’t get fried by regular hot tool usage, the healthiest option is to avoid them completely. Use this time at home to perfect your air-dry hair routine and leave the hot tools alone for now.
3. Apply a hair mask regularly.
Treat yourself to a self-care moment at least once a week and make time for a hair mask. Luxuriate in softer and smoother strands with a regular masking routine. We love Emerge Back to Life Hair Mask. This clean mask delivers major hydration and promises to nourish your hair and nurse it back to life.
4. Try new products.
Scalp care products are all the rage right now. While we tend to spend lots of time, money and energy on our skincare routines, we mostly forget about our scalps. Test out new scalp care products during this time and see what a difference they can make. Use Nexxus Clean & Pure Scalp Scrub once or twice a week to hit reset on your scalp and whisk away any flakes or product buildup.
5. Pamper yourself.
For many of us, our usual schedules are go, go, go. Use this chance to slow down and really pamper yourself in the process. Consider switching out your usual cotton pillowcases for silk alternatives to care for your hair while you sleep. Silk pillowcases are known to cause a lot less friction on your strands and will have you waking up with smoother and softer hair in no time.
