Experiencing a pandemic is not easy. We live in an era where everything is turned upside down and we have to constantly adjust. Our lifestyles, routines and even self-care have taken a hit! Our hair is also affected and it is important to take care of it even if we no longer have access to hair salons.
How do I survive the pandemic with my hair?
Before starting all kinds of unsuitable treatments, it is important to take stock of the condition of your hair. A good self-assessment can be done by following these steps:
1. ARE THEY DEHYDRATED?
Check to see if your hair is dry. One way to tell is that they don't look shiny. To the touch, they are stiff and difficult to handle.
2. ARE THEY TANGLED?
If you notice that your hair has knots, or that it is difficult to run your fingers through it, it means that you need more appropriate care to untangle it and above all, a lot of patience!
3. DOES THE SAME PROBLEM RETURN?
One season, your hair is beautiful. Another season, your hair is rebellious. Why? It is possible that it is time to change your hair routine. So many factors can affect your hair: environment, stress, lack of water, poor diet, illness, unsuitable hair products, etc. Do an overall factor self-assessment. This will help you adjust to better identify the next step to take.
