Most people are staying inside right now as much as possible (as they should be.)
And, for many, that means skipping your regular trips to the beauty salon for hair upkeep since salons are likely not an essential business near you.
But, just because you are staying in and things are a little weird right now, doesn’t mean that you can’t do a few things to help keep your hair looking fresh and healthy.
Read on for 7 tips to pamper yourself a little and at least try to maintain some hair normalcy while abiding by the quarantine recommendations.
Use this slower inside time to focus on the health of your hair, this includes making sure it is healthy from the get-go by taking a biotin-rich hair, skin, and nails supplement regularly.
These supplements often contain a mix of B-vitamins, collagen, vitamin A, vitamin E, as well as minerals to keep your hair strong and healthy.
As a bonus, the same kinds of vitamins and minerals that are great for your hair tend to be great for the rest of your body too, so you will likely notice more glowy skin or longer stronger nails as well.
If you tend to be the kind of person that meticulously heat styles your hair regularly to ensure not one hair is out of place, maybe take this time to embrace a more hands-off approach to your locks.
Heat styling tends to be damaging to hair, so, since you are going to be skipping those nights on the town for the foreseeable future, try out no heat styles that focus on hair health over high maintenance looks.
Hair masks are great for your hair, but it potentially used to be difficult finding the time to fit them in.
If you are now working from home, use the extra freedom to pop on a hair mask during your video-off afternoon business call.
No one will know any better, and your hair will thank you for it.
The excuses of not drinking enough water throughout the day are now out the window, since you are likely a few steps away from your fridge at all times now.
Most people know that drinking lots of water is great for your skin, but it can also help your hair in terms of shine.
Start with the recommended 8 X 8-ounce cups of water a day, or even aim for a little more if you can.
If you have been dealing with incremental hair thinning, but didn’t feel like taking the time to look into options, right now is the perfect time.

Who says your hair can’t look thicker and fuller coming out of quarantine than it did going in?
Staying at home for a while is a great time to revisit what your natural color may look like.
This may help you discover a newfound appreciation for your given hair color, and let you ride out that awkward grow-out phase in the comfort of your own home.
Or, if you can’t quite bring yourself to abandon your favorite hair color, opt for an easy (and nourishing) at-home color depositing conditioner or glaze to add a touch of color without actually doing the damage of a box dye.
While we can’t condone an at-home massive style overhaul right now, maintaining the health of your hair by a minor trim may be just what your at-home locks are looking for.
Watch a few simple videos online about how to do a basic trim to do a dead ends touch-up that will hopefully leave your hair feeling sleek and smooth.
Resist the urge for any haircuts that are a drastic change from your current style to avoid the risk of major mishaps. Plus, once everything settles down, your stylist will need you just as much as you need them.
