Beauty enthusiasts take their beauty schedule pretty seriously and try to follow it very religiously, however, the current situation is not exactly the most favorable time to go and about and do all your beauty chores, especially if it means visiting a salon. Although most salons have reopened in most parts of the country, the COVID-19 cases are still on the rise, and risking going out is not the wisest thing to do. But that simply doesn’t mean your beauty schedule has to be disrupted. Since we have become so reliant on the salons to get done with all the beauty chores, doing them all by yourself at home might seem like an impossible task at first, but believe us, it’s not that difficult. While you might have to put a full stop to hair trims and root touch-ups for some time, as it’s for best if the job is left to the professionals, you certainly can do a few things from your end to maintain the hair color you have got and prevent it from fading a lot faster during the quarantine.
Change your hair parting
Switching your hair parting is possibly the best way to conceal your roots. Your roots are the first place to show a clear distinction between your colored hair strands and your natural locks. It is basically the result of your hair growing out, and the best way to conceal the fact is by changing your hair parting. Instead of parting your hair the usual way, opt for a deep side parting. Other than concealing your roots, it will also your hair a very refreshing upgrade.
Reduce the amount of hair wash
The best thing to have happened in this lockdown is we no longer have to worry about those greasy, oily locks or washing our hair almost every second day. Now that you have been staying at home, you don’t really have to be worried about how your hair looks. But don’t take us wrong here; we are simply telling you to reduce the amount of hair wash and instead do it just once or twice a week. Overwashing your hair can strip your locks of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated, dull and rough. Another major advantage of limiting hair wash is it will ensure that your hair color stays put for an extended period.
Using the right hair products is the key
Your hair products are one of the key factors to ensure that your hair color stays on for a longer period. The right hair products can make all the difference, and it’s imperative that you only use the right ones. When it comes to your shampoo and conditioner or any other hair care product, you should always invest in the ones with color-protecting formula. Other than that, look for products that don’t contain SLS, as it can be extremely damaging for your hair. Also, before using any heat styling tool, make sure to apply a heat protectant and smoothing serum to your locks to prevent any damage.
Avoid exposing your hair to the sun
Too much sun exposure can prove to be extremely harmful to your tresses, especially if they are colored. Besides all that damage, it can also make your hair color fade a lot faster. While you might not be stepping out a lot during the lockdown, on days when you do, make sure to cover your hair with a scarf or hat to keep it protected from harsh UV rays.
