Written for The Daily Struggle
Believe it or not, before lockdown I never washed my own hair. And no, I do not think I’m some sort of celebrity. I just enjoyed going to the salon every week to prevent damaged hair, for a blow dry as my hair has always been the bane of my life.
Thick, curly and needing a good 4-hour window to wash, dry and style my own hair it just wasn’t something I was interested in doing. And then lockdown hit, and I started rooting around the cupboards for some shampoo and conditioner.
Now if I tell you that 100 days later, I’m not even thinking about the salon, would you believe me? But really, I don’t think I will ever go back to my weekly blow dry’s and the reason being I have found products that actually work for my hair and make what used to be such an effort an actual breeze.
Here are just a few of my Hair care heroes that have helped restore and prevent damaged hair through lockdown. Some products have been kindly gifted, but all thoughts are my own.
