Nevertheless, this goes far beyond the issue of vanity. The care of a human body ties people to the physical, social world they’ve been abruptly ejected from. Stuck inside, we are left with just our existing tools and skills, trying to maintain our sense of self (or at least our eyebrows). No doubt about it: our appearance is connected to our identity.
In order to survive this pandemic outside the salon, here are a few tips and tidbits that I hope will be helpful.
- Style your hair differently when dealing with regrowth:
- Root Concealer: Of course, there’s always the option to pick up a small can of root concealer the next time you go to the grocery or drug store. Aerosol root concealer extends salon color with temporary gray root cover-up. Many brands are waterproof and transfer-proof. This touch-up spray with a nozzle applicator can cover root regrowth exactly where you need it. Root concealer sprays can evenly disperse and adhere to hair for fuller coverage. Please, please, please, don't try to box color your hair at home. You won't want to have to spend more time and money later for color correction once salons reopen.
- You exfoliate your skin; don't forget about your scalp, too. Proper blood circulation can stimulate hair growth and health. It can prevent dandruff and dry scalp.
- Always use leave-in creams and serums.
- Give yourself a deep conditioning treatment once a week at home. Wash hair thoroughly, then mix conditioner and hair serum in your palms and run it through your hair. Comb it through, wrap it in a towel, and let it treat your hair for a couple of hours. Rinse it out and let your hair air dry if possible to reduce heat stress.
- If you dry your hair or use heat styling implements, always use a thermal styling protection product to eliminate heat damage.
- Stress & Exercise: Stress affects the whole body, including your hair and scalp. Stress can make your hair dull, unhealthy, and contribute to dandruff, lack of hair growth and even balding.Try to reduce stress in your life. I know this isn't easy, given today's difficult and unsure times, but try exercising. Exercise not only makes your entire body (including your hair) healthier from the inside out, it can also work the stress right out of your system, replacing it with endorphins - chemicals that help to relieve pain and stress, and boost happiness.
- Get enough sleep to ensure adequate hormone growth (HGH) which affects the hair. Eat the right foods and drink plenty of water.
For your next appointment, ask for a deep conditioning treatment. I recommend these once monthly, or more often for dry, damaged hair. I use only GKhair deep conditioning treatments, which strengthen hair weakened by chemical services, heat styling, and environmental effects. It smooths the hair surface by closing the cuticle layers, and it evens the porosity of the hair.
