6 Steps To Get Your Lockdown Hair Back to its Super Sleek Stylish Best

With lockdown easing and life getting back to normal, it's probably time to start thinking about sorting out our appearance and smartening up a bit!  After all, you could soon find yourself back at work and, even, whisper it, going out again at some point.  It's time to ditch the mum bun!  If you are suffering from lockdown hair traumas, here's how to get super sleek stylish hair fast.

1. Shampoo properly

Think you know how to shampoo your hair already?  Maybe not.

Invest in a top quality salon shampoo that matches your hair type, whether it's thin, thick, dry or oily.  If you colour your hair, make sure that your shampoo formula is suitable for coloured hair.  Too many people grab the first bottle off the supermarket shelf, when what they really need is a shampoo that suits them.  So check yours is right.

2. Deep conditioner

The formulation of hair conditioner is designed to add body and shine to your hair, making it look healthy.  A good conditioner will help to keep your hair static free, which reduces frizziness.  Massage the conditioner from root to tip and leave it to work its magic for a few minutes before rinsing out.

If you really want to add volume consider adding hair extensions.  Here's where to buy the best human hair extensions.

3. Dry your hair well

Modern hair dryers will not harm your hair as much as they used to. But if you do use a blow dryer to get your hair dry quickly, make sure you keep it moving over your hair and dry it evenly to avoid overheating.  If you have the time, use the dryer on a cool setting to avoid damage.

4. Use a good serum

There are so many great products around that are designed to smooth your hair.  Hair serums work in three ways, by relaxing the hair, smoothing it, and reducing the potential for it to attract the static electricity that will cause it to frizz up.  Try a serum such as Frizz-ease to keep your hair looking great.

5. Use good quality hair straighteners

Most cheap hair straighteners do not do a very good job, either not getting hot enough or not having a smooth and slippery enough surface to allow your hair to pass through smoothly.  Instead buy the best you can, opting for ceramic or glass heating plates, and an adjustable temperature control.

Ceramic plates help to discharge static electricity from your hair leaving it smoother and straighter for longer.  GHD straighteners are popular, and are used in many of the top salons.  Their plates get hot fast, and are extra smooth to make styling your hair super easy

6. Eat well

You really are what you eat and your hair is nourished from the inside out.  Eat a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables and fruit to give your body all the vitamins and minerals it needs.  Drink lots of water too, as this will flush impurities out of your body and keep you healthy.
