We know how everyone feels during this period and the uncertainty that fills the air. We also know that keeping up with certain things will be quite hard as we’re either not used to doing the things ourselves or we’re just too lazy to do anything. While we can’t help you cook that meal you been craving, we sure can help you figure out ways you can keep up with your hair dye during the quarantine. Sounds good? We thought so!
There are a couple of ways one can keep up with hair dye without waiting for the salon to reopen or your favorite stylist to help you out. You can help yourself out in the comfort of your home. Below are 5 ways to help you keep and maintain your hair dye while chilling at home.
Nourishments for Hair
As we feed our belly to conquer hunger, so does the hair need food to stay healthy. The first step to keeping up with your hair dye is to think about the hair before the color. Foods like eggs, berries, spinach, nuts, and potatoes are important for the growth and life of the hair, and as per Hair Guard massaging the scalp can do wonders for your hair. You may want to put those in your Instacart. And do not forget your vitamins.
Infrequent Hair Washing
This is needed as the hair builds up residue and flakes on the scalp. Washing hair is also therapeutic as the water helps calm the brain and gives soothing relief. But in this case, you would want to wash your hair less often to make your hair color last longer and to keep the natural oils in your hair work more efficiently. When you wash your hair, use shampoos that are sulfate-free like Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo or L’oreal Everpure Sulfate-Free Moisture Shampoo as it helps retain your color and brings back shine to it.
Heat is the enemy when it comes to your hair dye so you would want to skip the hot water and use cool water as the hot water washes out the hair color. Take note.
Conditioning x Dye
This is another DIY technique to improve your hair dye look. Before conditioning your hair, add some of your hair dye into your conditioner and mix it, then use it. It adds longevity to the color and makes it look newer than before. You’d be proud. Also, you could deep condition by using products like Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask or Olaplex no.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. You can get either at Sephora or on Amazon.
Leave-in treatments come in handy as you don’t have to wash your hair before using them and they are lifesavers as they keep the hair hydrated, smooth, silky, shiny and healthy. What a total package. You can get leave-in treatments like Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3, Matrix Biolage Hydra Leave-in Creme or It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product.
