When we heard that salons would be reopening again next week, I think all of our immediate reactions were, ‘Yessss!!!!’ and were quickly followed by ‘Oh nooooo…’.
Our hairdressers are not going to be happy with us for the state we’ve let our hair get into during this lockdown. It was hardly our, fault, very much a ‘needs must’ situation, but we did ignore their warnings to stay away from the box dyes and ignore the urge to cut a panic-pandemic fringe.
We figure it's important to get our hair in fighting shape again before returning to the salon (and to cut out the fear of what our hair dresser will say to us!). And the place to start with that is your hair routine.
We’ve all fallen a little out of practice in self care (hello hairy legs), but that doesn’t mean we can’t recover our lock’s former luscious glory. It’s time to feel good again and get out of that lockdown slump! We deserve all the pampering we can get and the L’Oreal dream team hair products are a sure-fire way to get a little luxury and style back into our routine. Sure don’t we deserve it!
