Although it’s only been a handful of weeks since salons closed, some people have decided to take the scissors and clippers into their own hands — and to be honest, it’s not looking so great. “Right now, we really don’t have much control over anything, and I think the reason people are trying to do DIY hair is because we do have control over the way we look and everyone knows when you look good, you feel good,” says Sasha Zoghi, cofounder of Revolution Salon. Her biggest pieces of advice? Don’t do anything permanent and use this time to give your hair a little TLC. Here, she shares 4 expert tips to ensure you’re taking the best care of your hair while at home.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. While you’re watching your favorite Netflix show, apply Oribe’s Gold Lust Pre-Shampoo Intensive Treatment on dry hair, let it sit for 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition. Your hair will feel moisturized and full of life, especially if it’s damaged.
Use a dry shampoo in between washes. R+Co has four different kinds of dry shampoo, and there’s actually a dry shampoo mist called Spiritualized for all of you who are getting your sweat on during your afternoon runs or at-home yoga sessions.
Cover your roots. When you get your hair colored at a salon, it takes several different colors to create the perfect tone — meaning you likely won’t get the same results from an at-home color. Also, fixing a mistake created at home can be a very long, costly process. Instead of ruining your customized salon color, use temporary root color sprays, like R+Co’s Bright Shadows, which comes in seven different colors.
Switch up your daily routine with CBD. R+Co’s Super Garden is a shampoo and conditioner set made of hemp-derived CBD as well as coconut, moringa, peppermint and eucalyptus oils. This shower combo will both soothe and nourish your hair and scalp.
