TBH we may not be huuuge fans of staying at home – especially when the sun is shining at unprecedented levels right now – but we are 100% #stayingathome to help fight the dreaded coronavirus. And whilst we are all practising social-distancing and self-isolation #teamsupercuts is here to keep you occupied discussing and sharing all things HAIR. Our no.1 passion. One thing you’ll have loads of time for now that you’re indoors is updating your haircare routine. You may not be able to visit your local salon for stylist expertise on haircare right now, but that’s not going to stop us from sharing out haircare tips with you online!
Introducing a new hair mask to your weekly routine is an important first step to keeping hair healthy. We might be living our best life indoors right now, but that might actually mean that your hair feels a little lack lustre. Is it feeling dry from all that central heating and lack of fresh air? Or is it getting brittle and weaker from all those hours spent wearing it in a tightly twisted top-knot?
Here, we’ve rounded up 5 of our stylist recommended hair masks, tasked with tackling your at-home haircare woes. And there’s no excuse about not having the time to care for your hair either. Now that you’re safely at home more, you have all the time in world! So grab your tea and biccies, queue up your Netflix and get ready to couple up with your next hair saviour.
Hair care at home tip #1: Strengthening
Redken Strength Builder Plus
As you resort to convenient topknots indoors, it’s important to inject a bit of juice into weakened locks. Take care of distressed hair with the Redken Strength Builder Plus. This mask conditions and repairs your hair and works to keep it looking healthy. By targeting weaker areas of the hair, this rinse out Redken treatment effectively strengthens your locks whilst nourishing them for added resilience. You know what that means? You get to spend more time ticking off series from your Netflix watchlist, and less time worrying about your brittle locks.
Hair care at home tip #2: Nourishment
Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask
Is your hair in need of some extra conditioning? This high performing Moroccanoil deep conditioner has been formulated for people with medium to thick hair that may be prone to becoming dry or dull. The Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask offers revitalisation and intense conditioning for dry, frizzy hair using its rich, creamy formula. The good thing? No wait, scrap that – the GREAT thing about this hair mask is that you only need to leave it on for *5 minutes*. It cleverly treats your hair with the moisture it needs as well as upping its protein intake, leaving with your hair that’s visibly smooth and shiny.
Hair care at home tip #3: All rounder
