Let’s just address the elephant in the room: Times are weird as hell right now. Anxiety is high. Chaos, uncertainty, and fear are all around us. People are losing their jobs. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. With salons and spas closed, many of us are forced to forfeit the comforts and conveniences we’re used to. We’re cutting our own hair, removing our own gel manicures, and even changing the way we dress — gloves and masks are pretty much a requirement for going outside. So it’s safe to say that in this time of quarantine and social distancing, hair-care may (understandably) not be in front of mind. However, focusing on the world outside can quickly become too much to take. Indulging in simple pleasures, like babying your hair, can be a form of self-care, whether you’re creating a conditioning mask from kitchen ingredients, or you’re trying out a new hair-care product.
If you’re fortunate enough to have the disposable funds, a few brands are soldiering on to bring us some newness that might distract you from what’s going on outside for just a little while. Briogeo has a brand-new hair oil that promises to patch up those split ends you can’t have your stylist trim. Urban Hydration‘s affordable new hair-care products are here to soothe your scalp and, hopefully, ease your mind momentarily. And now is as good a time as any to perfect your styling techniques with Bio Ionic‘s latest hot tool.
Read on to see which new hair-care items to snap up this month.
