We’ve been in lockdown for a few weeks now and I’m seeing posts on my Facebook newsfeed with friends talking about how they miss going to the hairdresser. Lots of people want to get their roots done. Others just want a trim. With social distancing, if you want to get a cut and blow dry, or try out a new style, the chances are you’ll need to do it at home.
But, before you reach for the kitchen scissors, I’d just like to say it’s easier than you might think to care for your hair and keep it in the best condition ready for cutting and restyling. With your hair in tip-top condition, it will be easier to take hold of sections to cut, the cuts will be smoother, and you’ll reduce splitting and damage.
The secret starts with your hair washing regime, using a quality shampoo and revitalising conditioner to add hydration and shine to your locks. There’s no excuse not to cleanse, moisturise and protect your hair, especially if you use heated curlers or hair straighteners. Less is more when it comes to using products on your hair. A coin sized amount of shampoo and conditioner is plenty for short to shoulder length hair.
If you’re keen to trim your mane yourself, make sure you have great lighting and a mirror to see the results. Cutting slightly damp hair will give you a straighter line, but don’t forget your hair will bounce back slightly shorter when dry. Small and frequent cuts are more forgiving if you make a mistake. You can always take more off if you wish but if you chop too much it could take a few weeks or months to regrow.
I can thoroughly recommend the Arbonne True Hair range of daily shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment to help keep your hair looking silky smooth and manageable during the lockdown. Arbonne’s hair care products are certified vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.
On the technical side, all of Arbonne’s hair products are paraben free, silicon free and sulphate free and have been developed using the latest research in scientific and ingredient technology. These truly are world-class products, protecting your hair from damage, using botanicals and cutting-edge science. From root to tip, you can nourish your hair with essential moisture, giving your hair that luminous, healthy shine.
While we’re in lockdown it’s important to get up, dress up and show up, especially as we’re engaging more and more in online get togethers. Even if your virtual meeting is with friends and family, they’ll want to know you’re taking care of yourself. With high quality webcams and phone cameras it’s easy to spot anyone who’s looking under the weather.
For business meetings, being smartly groomed with washed and brushed hair, a dash of make-up, jewellery and accessories is the key to creating that vital first impression. Just like in-person meetings, the effort you make when on camera pays off in real business results. If you’re feeling good about yourself everything else just falls into place.
