Tough Times

Covid-19 has been hard on everyone, but certain businesses are taking a bigger hit than others.  If you’re running a hair salon, you already know this.  Many salons have been forced to close down during this pandemic. Some may be starting to open up their doors soon, which is great news! We should still take into consideration how important social distancing is during these times. Now is the perfect time to put that extra care into your hair and learn how to maintain your natural hair at home. 


Maintaining Your Hair At Home

Right now, stylists are encouraging their clients to manage their own hair health rather than opting for a red carpet treatment. We all want to come out of social distancing with thriving hair!  So, with that in mind, now is the perfect time for deep conditioning.Adding a good hair oil to your styling routine to add that extra moisture.  Try coconut, olive, avocado, or grape-seed oil. Make sure you’re adding oil to your ends and scalp at least 1-2 times a week and completely comb the products through your hair. When you wash out your hair, make sure you get all the product out of your roots to avoid buildup.


Know What You Can Do Yourself

When taking care of your hair at home, it’s important to know what you can and can’t do yourself.  Hair stylists don’t recommend coloring your own hair, for example. Hair coloring products you buy from the store can be hard on your hair and might damage it.  Also, if you’re looking to get a haircut, don’t try to do it yourself.  Even trained stylists don’t cut their own hair; it’s just too difficult to manage.  If youhave a friend who can cut hair, that might be better.  If you absolutely must style your hair, reach out to your stylist to make sure it’s done right.  It’s a great way to support the local businesses, too.  Just make sure they’re sanitizing their business between clients to protect you from the virus.


Home Hair Care is Easy!

Taking care of your hair at home involves a lot less work than you might think. In addition to all the hair masks and regimens you might try, take this time to let your hair rest. If you are usually using heat to style your hair, give it a break. Consider washing your hair less and let the natural oils nourish your hair. It’s also a great time to fine tune your diet.   It will not only benefit your hair, but also your immune system. A healthy body will have healthy hair!
