Here are her tips for maintaining your hair in quarantine!
Give Your Hair and Scalp TLC with Shea Pomade & Scalp Oil. With ingredients like cinnamon, rosemary, olive, almond and tea tree oil, these products add moisture to the hair, improve elasticity, strengthens and stimulates hair growth, prevents frizz and restores scalp health!
Keep Your Shampoo/ Blow Dry Schedule. If you had a weekly or bi-weekly salon appointment, do your hair at home with the same frequency. This avoids massive tangles or excessive dryness. Always detangle with a spray bottle of your favorite detangling conditioner diluted with water and gently comb through your pre-sectioned hair with a wide-toothed comb. If you have dandruff buildup, mix a teaspoon of witch hazel into your shampoo. If blow drying isn’t your cup of tea, try blow dry-free styles like twists and braids which can be undone once the hair is completely dry for awesome curls or waves!
Protect And Retain Moisture. You can keep moisture within your tresses while you sleep by wrapping it in a silk scarf. Your hair will thank you for it!
Try DIY Hair Masks. If you’ve already missed staying on your shampoo schedule, you definitely need a DIY hair mask to replenish lost moisture before shampooing. This simple mask combines ingredients in your kitchen: 1 avocado, 3 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk, 1 tbsp aloe vera gel, 1 tbsp honey and 1 cup olive oil. Simply mix together, apply to pre-sectioned hair from root to ends, wrap in a plastic cap for up to 30 minutes and rinse out. Follow with a conditioning shampoo and a little conditioner before final styling.
Give Yourself Haircuts and Trims. The key here is to just take off a little, no more than a quarter-half inch. Focusing on the fringe area will avoid major hair disasters. Point cutting instead of straight horizontal chunky cuts are best. Listen here for more detailed guidance: dfrazier.org.
Explore Wigs or Extensions. This is the time to relax, have fun with or simply protect your hair! Just in case you’ve tried everything above to no avail, you can order some hair! D.Frazier sells ready-to-wear and customizable 100 percent human hair wigs, clip-in, tape-in extensions in a variety of colors and textures. She also offers bespoke wig services for clients that can be shipped in just three weeks.
