The Best At-Home Maintenance Hair Tips You’ll Ever Need (Plus One For Your Wigs!)By Delaina Dixon | March 25, 2020 | Beauty
Hey Divas! We realize that so many things we’re used to having done outside the home — like taking care of our precious locks — is happening inside and on our own now. So we’ve rounded up some of our favorite tips from our top stylist pals to help you get through this time. Read on below!
Clean Gently. With Wash Day Delight, the newest shampoo from Carol’s Daughter, “you don’t have to work to make the lather, which causes tangles. Hair gets clean rinses clean and rinses fast. And it has a beautiful fragrance, an effervescent green grass juice smell.” Lisa Price, creator of Carol’s Daughter
Condition, Condition, Condition. To minimize breakage and make hair soft and manageable, try True Hair Care MoistureRich, from True Indian, the leader in hair extensions and wigs, works for hair extensions and all textures of natural hair. It’s infused with keratin protein to help make hair strong, soft and full of shine. The line includes a conditioner and an argon mask. “Healthy strands, your own or on your wig, is a key to making your hair look soft, supple and lush.” Karen Mitchell, owner of True Indian Hair
Prime For Style. “Depending on the health of your hair, type and texture choose a primer that would be most beneficial for you. I like heavier primers such as Oi Milk By Davines. This will provide an element of slip so that it’s easier to comb through. It will also add moisture to your hair, and prep your hair for additional styling products.” Emerald Fox, stylist at Ian McCabe Studio in Washington D.C.
Trim Your Ends. Yes, you have to keep your hairs trimmed — even at home — to keep them from splitting. Find a good pair of hair shears online and then be super conservative while cutting (this is just a trim, not an at-home haircut!).
