As we learn to navigate our new normal in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are unable to access services that are normally available to us. Indeed, salon-quality hair care is unavailable to most people during this time as local and state governments have restricted salon operations. While most things are at a standstill around us, our bodies still need care and maintenance, and our hair is no exception. Many people have hair care routines involving maintaining their overall hair health, as well as their hair’s aesthetic appeal. Currently, salon-grade services are not accessible to people for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, there are affordable and accessible professional-grade solutions to help you repair your damaged hair and preserve your color from the safety of your home.
What Causes Damage to Hair?
Our hair can be a perfect window into the health of our body, mind, and environment. There are a number of things that can cause damage to hair:
- Medical Conditions
- Swimming in chlorine or salt
- Living in dry environments
- Overexposure to sun
Certain hair care habits can also cause damage to your hair such as:
- Chemical treatments like coloring
- Teasing your hair
- Brushing wet hair
- Washing your hair in hot showers
- Using hot hair styling tools
- Putting your hair in tight hairstyles
- Overwashing your hair
Coloring and bleaching can be especially harmful to your locks. Bleaching works through an oxidative process, which strips the pigment away from individual hair shafts. When your hair is exposed to an oxidative substance, it raises the hair cuticle and sucks the moisture out of your hair. As a result, bleaching causes your hair to become more porous. When your hair is porous, it is more susceptible to damage caused by other damaging agents (such as sunlight, dryness, and heat).
Some factors that cause hair damage are in our control whereas some are not. However, what is in our control is how we care for our hair. If your hair is dry, brittle, frizzy, porous, splits easily, and is lacking luster and vibrancy, your hair would certainly benefit from a little extra TLC. In normal circumstances, most people rely on their hairstylists to make recommendations for the best hair treatments for their specific damage. However, access to salon hair care treatments is off the table at this time.
If you are suffering from severely damaged hair, there are recovery options that you can start today. Firstly, stop your harmful haircare habits for the immediate future, if you can. Fortunately, most people do not have to style their hair each day during these times so give your hair a rest. For example, avoid blow drying, styling, daily washing, etc. Secondly, implement some changes to your lifestyle that will heal your hair from the inside out. Start with drinking more water, eat healthier meals, get moving (even if it is on your living room floor), and establish stress-relieving habits that you can carry forward after COVID-19 isolation mandates are removed. Thirdly, look at your hair care products and identify if your regular hair care products are causing more damage than good. Shampooing and conditioning products frequently contain harmful chemicals that can cause even more damage, especially when you use hot styling tools.
