I don’t even need to ask “who else is sick of lockdown” because we all are, I know. But with a stretch in the evenings, and sunny days ahead, we can use our time wisely and the opportunity to get our hair in Summer ready condition. With all the salons being closed this will be a little trickier than before but investing in the correct products to reduce split ends, enhance your colour, and keep your hair hydrated will help you no end. Below are a few tried and tested remedies for lockdown tresses.
Olaplex Bonding Oil – A great allrounder for supporting your hair, enhancing your blow-dry, protecting your hair from heat styling, and preventing split ends from moving further up the hair strand. It can also be used as a beautiful finishing serum. In fact, the entire Olaplex range is perfect for anyone looking to reinforce their hair and improve its condition and appearance. The full range is also vegan, sulfate free, silicone free, paraben free, nut free, and gluten free.
Bundles – While lockdown gives you an involuntary rest from colour and heat styling, give your tresses a boost, why not up your game with a solution bundle suitable for all your personal haircare needs. We have curated a vast selection of haircare bundles to suit many concerns. Browse our bundles for your perfect match, and if you need help choosing just drop us a message and we’ll be happy to help.
Tinted Masks – Roots down to your ears? Why not refresh your colour look with a quick tinted mask, condition and tone in one simple step. Embrace your natural regrowth as a “root shadow” and put a fun hue or platinum toner through the ends or blend old highlights into grey roots with an ashy, pigmented mask. Be as bold or understated as you like, but rest assured your hair will look and feel better for it.
Root Cover Up – This is a big one for a lot of people, and ultimately, if you are desperate enough, leads to home colour, but, there is no need to stress. If you just cannot stand the sight of pesky lockdown roots, but, have an important Zoom meeting looming we have the remedy. Just reach for your root spray, spritz it on, and nobody is any the wiser to your root truth. Washes out easily with shampoo.
Detox – If you feel like your hair and scalp are feeling a little drab and sluggish, and you just can’t seem to get any good from your hair, a detox could be just what you need. Build up can reduce shine, weigh down your hair, clog your follicles effecting healthy hair growth and causing tender pimples on your scalp. It can prevent the absorption of natural oil causing fragile and weak hair and lead to dull, lifeless, damaged hair. This can also be an issue for people who swim or live in hard water areas. Say goodbye to heavy hair and tired scalp with a good deep cleanse to stimulate blood flow, remove product build-up, dandruff, free radicles, pollution, silicone, mineral deposits, and excess oil residue. Some of the best remedies for this are listed below.
Now is a great chance to get your hair into peak condition, never have we had so much time at home, and so few social obligations. If you need a little guidance please feel free to get in touch and we will be happy to steer you in the right direction.
