Lockdown is slowly easing and the world outside our homes is cautiously opening. Almost as exciting as sitting a metre (or is it two?) from mates in a pub is reuniting with our hair stylists!
Depending on how well you’ve cared for your hair during lockdown, going back may be a bit daunting, even traumatic. Your stylist can only work with what they have. So, do your part and give them healthy locks with which to work their magic.
Whether rushing back to the salon or not, maintaining healthy hair is an ongoing responsibility. To help you keep it at its best and most beautiful, we’ve curated these top 10 expert tips:
It may be tempting to ‘let ourselves go’ in our isolation (oh dear, it’s noon and I still haven’t brushed my teeth!), but maintaining regular grooming habits will go a long way in keeping us sane with some semblance of normality.

Of all the things we have to do in a day, hydrating and protecting our hair is not always top of the list. However, given the wear and tear from things like heat styling, colouring and weather changes, proper hair care really should move right on up it.
To best protect your hair you must first understand its type and porosity. Between the two, porosity is a bit more important in terms of knowing the moisture levels your hair likes and the products you should use.
