At Home Hair Hacks
You don’t necessarily need to go to the salon and pay the big bucks and spend hours of your time for professional services. Look for these at-home products and beautify your tresses at home, on your own time.
A scalp scrub can help alleviate product build up – especially to combat the after effects that the ever-popular dry shampoo can cause. Excessive blow drying can also cause scalp irritation, which results in flaking and itching. Try R & Co Crown Scalp Scrub, or Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub.
All hair textures and colors can benefit from shine – it’s like a top coat for your hair! A glaze or a gloss fits the bill nicely. In addition to adding shine, a gloss can also tame flyaways and extend the life or your color. A professional glaze can run $50 and up and only last a week or two. Try an at-home version, like John Frieda Clear Shine Luminous Hair Glaze or Gloss Moderne.
If you’re adventurous enough to attempt hair color at home, DpHue Color Boosting Gloss and Deep Conditioning Treatment because it does all of those things: colors, boosts, glosses and conditions! Meant to be used between treatments, the color rinses out after a few washes.
