So here we all are, isolated in our own homes and self-quarantine is no joke. Between the difficult work from home schedule, the limitations to where you can go, what you have access to and the restrictions placed on what you can do, it’s understandable how it can get you feeling down in the dumps at times.
But who said social distancing has to be boring? They say every dark cloud has a silver lining and what better time to acknowledge that silver lining than right now. Consider this your cue to turn this time positively around and use it for something you don’t indulge in enough, but oh so rightfully deserve – SELF CARE!
Yes, love, you read that right and so we’re lining up all the care tips that you can treat your hair with, while in quarantine.
With all the wear and tear we put our hair through from the pollution and thermal styling now is as good a time as any to take a break from the use of hairdryers, straighteners or curling irons. Let quarantine be when you embrace the natural texture of your hair, let it breathe and let it be.
Nothing spells relaxation more than a brilliant hair oil massage. Being in quarantine for an extended number of days can be stressful and a good, lengthy oil massage will really rid that tension away. With the tips of your fingers, massage the oil into your scalp using slow circular motions starting at the front of your scalp, making your way to the back. Repeat this twice…well maybe even thrice; you have the time to take your time! We like to do this regime with the Afro Sheen 3-In-1 Nourishing Oil only because it’s packed with Jojoba oil and Argan Oil. What these two ingredients do is work together to replenish your curls and revive them from their lack-lustre state. There you’re off to a perfect start to this period of quarantine!
The nourishing oil massage isn’t nearly as complete without a hot towel to follow through. You can indulge in this steamy therapy in the luxury of your own home now. All you have to do is soak a towel in hot water. Now, we don’t want you to burn yourself and add another calamity to this all. So, check your ideal temperature then wring out the excess water and wrap the hot, damp towel around your hair. This infiltrates the strands and allows the oil to perform its magic on your tresses. For best results, we suggest that you keep your curls wrapped up for about 30 minutes. You can sit back, relax or even enjoy your quarantine time with a small 30-minute snooze.
Ok girl, You’re 30 mins are up. Now you skip into the shower to round up with a good cleanse and condition routine for your hair. Our knight in caring armour is the African Pride Moisture Miracle Honey & Coconut Oil Shampoo. While the coconut oil from it deeply conditions and hydrates your curls, the honey works to lock in the moisture and ensure that your strands retain the hydration long after they’re dry. Talk about the perfect solution to all your dry hair problems, right? Poof…all gone!
The last thing you need is for your brilliant day of self-care to end with a ton of frizz. Rather than aggressively wiping or drying your hair with a towel (which you’d normally do on other days when you’re in a rush), switch for a regular T-shirt or a T-shirt towel wrap – these have a softer fabric and gently dab away the excess moisture
then leaving your hair to air-dry.
So there you have it sistah – an epic day of self-care in self-quarantine, courtesy your caring friends at the Black Hair Hub, always around to keep you virtual company!
