When all the fuss is focused on business continuity planning and concern over food supply, the last thing most people were worried about was their hair. However, as #stayathome lengthen into the foreseeable future, questions have begun to arise amongst residents on how to cope with their hair at home.
There are many tutorials on YouTube on how to cut or colour your own hair, but Suji Choi our Spa Manager advises our residents not to be overly concerned with cutting your hair this season. Instead shift their focus to healthy hair.
1. A balanced diet
A healthy diet provides much of the nutrients to the scalp which in turns brings about healthy hair. Consume more greens, beans, nuts, eggs, fish, and chicken. Check with our Estate Management when the veggie farm would be.
2. Massage your scalp
Massage improves blood circulation in the scalp. You can also apply extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil to the scalp. The oil will further strengthen the roots of the hair and help to keep your hair hydrated.
3. Don’t wash your hair too often
Wash your hair alternate days instead of daily. This will retain essential oils that needs time to travel from the roots of the hair to the end of the hair. If your scalp is too dry, it may cause itchiness. Use your discretion when determining how often you should wash your hair, however.
4. Protecting Your Hair
Your hair is also subjected to the effects of UV rays so wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair from the damage that can be caused by the sun.
5. Avoid Brushing Wet Hair
Try to brush your hair only when it’s dry. When the hair is wet, it will result in hair loss as the hair is brittle at this time.
However, if you are still interested to cut your own hair, some of these tutorials will help.
