As we all know, many businesses are feeling the effects from the closures due to COVID-19. One of those businesses includes hair salons. Millions of women across the globe depend on hair stylists to keep our hair healthy and beautiful. Some women just simply don't have the time to give their hair the maintenance it needs, so they turn to hair stylists.
But what do you do when you depend on your hair stylist and she is not available? I am going to provide some tips that will get you through the recent "shutdown" which will also keep your hair healthy and free from damage.
1. Contact Your Stylist For Advice
Before you attempt to do anything drastic to your hair, such as applying color, call your hair stylist! He/She will be able to walk you through the process and provide professional advice. They may even be able to make a visit to your home.
2. Protective Styling
If you have been following our blog then you KNOW we don't play about protective stying. Basically what I am telling you is...leave your hair alone until your stylist can get to it. That's if you are not use to maintaining your hair yourself of course. Protective styles are low maintenance styles. These include twists, braids, buns, wigs, ponytails, etc.
3. Keep Your Scalp Healthy
Healthy hair starts at the scalp. So, keep your scalp healthy by properly cleansing and getting rid of build-up. Also oil your scalp to eliminate dandruff, itchiness, and irritation.
4. Deep Condition Weekly
If you are use to making consistent trips to the salon, don't get too lazy. Still do the regular maintenance that your stylist would do, such as deep conditioning. If you have any doubts, ask your stylist! I recommend deep conditioning for at least 30 minutes under a hooded dryer or steamer.
I know these are frustrating times for all of us. But remember THIS TOO SHALL PASS. If you are unsure about anything, I am free to answer questions. Just sent me a message via social media or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and take care of yourself. ;)
P.S. If your hair stylist is closed for business, please send her words of encouragement or a random tip IF you can. #hairstylistsmatter
