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, most 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 trying out a new hair-care product.
