From ever-increasing frizz and those annoyingly long fringes to roots turning white and split ends becoming too obvious, every person nowadays has a different hair disaster story to tell.
The recent global pandemic known as COVID-19 has made everyone housebound as the lockdown period keeps getting extended everywhere in the world. Among numerous other things, a lot of people are worrying about their hair as salons and hairdressers are closed until further notice.
While the temptation to grab a pair of scissors and chop everything off might be strong, it doesn’t have to come to such extreme measures!
As they say, every cloud has a silver lining, putting that notion into perspective, this is the perfect time for you to take care of your hair and breathe new life into it. This is especially for those with bleached, colored, and damaged hair. While you are home, you can do some nice DIY hair treatments to restore that lost shine and luster, and make your hair soft and smooth all over again.
Lucky for you, we have a few simple, but super effective tips to care for your hair at home during this lockdown period.
Oil Your Hair
Oiling is one of the best things you can do for your hair. However, most of us don’t find the time to oil our hair because it’s a very time-consuming process, and secondly, not many people fancy the idea of oily, greasy hair, even if it’s just for a few hours.
Now is the ideal time to get to oiling and give your hair the nourishment that it needs. Even if you belong to the latter category of people that don’t like the idea of putting oil in their hair, it’s about time you consider doing so. Oiling has so many amazing benefits such as increased hydration and nourishment, prevention of hair fall, improved hair growth, strengthening of roots, and reduced dandruff, to name a few.
Some of the most popular types of hair oil include argan oil for dryness, almond oil for killing dandruff, baobab oil for encouraging hair growth and macadamia oil for extremely damaged hair.
DIY Hair Masks
If you look inside your kitchen pantry, you will find so many incredible everyday-use ingredients that don’t just do wonders in the culinary world, but also the beauty world!
Like oiling, hair masks are yet another time-consuming affair, but since we are all home now, we might as well work up some amazing DIY hair masks!
One of the most basic, but also a super promising hair mask is the one with avocado, argan or olive oil, coconut milk and honey. Simply blend all these ingredients together, apply the mixture all over your hair from roots to tips and wrap your hair, wait for 30 minutes, and then wash away!
This is the perfect and the quickest hair mask for dull, dry, and frizzy hair.
Trim Your Hair
There’s always a first time for everything, right?
For those who have never done it before, think of it like your first-time opportunity to trim your hair yourself! The idea may intimidate you, but you need not worry because a little trim won’t hurt anybody!
All you need to do is invest in a pair of razor-sharp styling shears, a nice comb, and a mirror for the back-view of your hair. Look up some videos online on how to cut your hair at home and trim away!
