Hairdresser Hannah Wardman has been trying to get some ideas together for you guys to look after your hair whilst we’re on lockdown. Here are some suggestions and tips to help you get by.
If you already have salon Treatments in get these treatments on at least once a week.

- To help these treatments be more intense, put a towel In The microwave for 30 seconds and wrap around the hair. The heat will make the treatment more intense.
- You can leave the treatments on for a minimum of 15 minutes but if you want to leave it on longer feel free.

However, if you don’t already have treatments in, it’s now going to be hard for you to get your hands on as all salons are temporarily closed. So on to the next part, which may sound strange to a lot of you but it does actually work!
If your hair is feeling dry and brittle then a good temporary homemade treatment (temporary being the operative word) is egg whites. That’s correct you heard her right EGG WHITES. Egg whites are full of protein and protein is what our hair is lacking when it’s feeling dry and damaged, so this is a great way to get protein straight back into the hair! To do the egg white treatment what you will need to do is:
1. Rinse the hair
2. Separate the egg white from the yolk and use the egg whites only. Apply the egg whites evenly all over the hair. Leave on for a least 10minutes but you can always leave it on for longer!
3. Rinse the egg whites then shampoo your hair twice and condition your hair like normal giving your hair a good comb through with a tangle teaser with the conditioner on.
4. Rinse conditioner and the Treatment is done.
Do this treatment once a week to start with until the hair starts to feel better. Once the hair starts feeling better then reduce the amount of times you do the treatment, as you don’t want to put too much protein in your hair. Too much protein could result in going back to square one.
No EGGageration this works and it’s a good way to help your hair until salons are back open and products and treatments are available for you to buy!
Unfortunately, there’s not a lot we can do regards to colours whilst we’re on lockdown, but getting your hair in good condition will really help, so when we are all back up and running your colour will look even more fabulous if the conditioner feels amazing too!!
People who have silvery/ashy/grey tones in their hair you may feel these tones have faded out or gone brassy. If you have a silver/purple shampoo (preferably salon bought) rinse your hair well then apply this evenly all over your hair and leave in for at least 10minutes and this will act like a toner. This will help blonde hair get rid of any unnecessary brassy tones.
If your wanting a more silvery/grey affect leave the silver/purple shampoo on for longer. There’s no need to do this every time you wash your hair unless you feel necessary, as some people find the the purple/silver shampoo can dry their hair out. But if your doing treatments along-side this then your hair should be fine.
I know the colour will be the main thing to a lot of people but unfortunately there is not a lot we can do about that whilst lockdown goes on and I can only stress PLEASE DO NOT HOME DYE. Home dyes can potentially ruin your hair or will make the colour process a lot harder for us when you do come back to salon. This could mean that you won’t get the results your wanting or potentially having to spend even more money on your hair when salons are back open to correct your colour and get it back to how you want it! They contain totally different ingredients to our colour products, which can result in strange reactions when it comes to us colouring your hair again! And what it says on the packet IS NOT always how it turns out!
Whilst we’re on lockdown we’re not seeing people so let your hair be natural. If your one to straighten it all the time or always apply heat, then this is a time for our hair to be left in its natural state whilst we are stuck in! Along with the treatments, applying less heat will also help the condition of our hair. The condition of our hair is everything!! And if the condition is fabulous the colour WILL be fabulous when we are allowed to get our hands back on it!!!
The phrase behind this whole pandemic is BE KIND!! Let’s apply this to our hairs too and BE KIND...... Thank you for taking the time out to read this .... Love, Peace and Afro grease!!!
Fashions Finest announces their partnership with R+Co hair team for their forth coming SS18 event during London Fashion Week this 16th - 17th September.
My hair texture is fine, professionally highlighted, tends to dry out on the ends and its naturally curly, with a tendency to frizz and fly out in all directions.
I’ve been using both products for over a week now. I only used small amount of mousse to start with but slightly larger amount that suggested on the packaging works better with my fine hair. Both products work best when used together, however the mousse worked best on my towel dried hair, after I brushed it. After I dried my hair I used small amount of oil to smooth the waves.
Overall, I am pretty impressed by both products – hair stays nice silky texture for about two days without the need for washing and the ends aren’t drying out. The hair keeps its shape and there is no uncontrollable frizzing. I only needed to use a bit of the serum in the morning to get the hair under control without having to wash it again. I prefer both products to similar hair products that I’ve been using so far.
Both products can be purchased from Boots - Salon Science Cellumax Volumising Foam PhytoCellTec Swiss Apple 150ml - 17.00 and Salon Science Reglosse Smoothing Serum GSP-T Swiss Grape 50ml - 18.00

Gosh Cosmetics – Giant Sun powder
I absolutely love this product, it is a giant and I have two of them and I have hardly scratched the surface of the one. It give a beautiful subtle glow and works great as an eye shadow as well.
There is tons of top oils on the market but my favourite is baby oil, it leaves my skin super soft and well moisturised. I put it on my skin with it before I shower for baby soft skin. It also works great as a make-up remover.
Pantene curl definer mouse
I love mousse on my hair, as I find it softer then gel and the mousse gives great curl definition and leaves my hair with less frizz.
Leave-in conditioner & water mix
To give my hair that added moisture during the hot days lazing on the beach. Make your own by mixing some of your favourite leave-in conditioner with water in a spritz bottle, carry it in your bag and spritz as needed.
Wide tooth comb
As soon as water hits my hair it goes into coily curls so a wide tooth, is a must to safely detangle my curls
W7 Lipstick –Sandpiper
This is from their Full Colour range and yes it is defiantly full colour, my lips POP when I put this colour on it. A beautiful hot pink that goes stunning with the soft glow of the giant sun powder.
P.S I LOVE YOU – nail polish
I have a whole collection of the P.S I LOVE YOU nail polish range, but currently I am loving the pinks, the light pink and the neon pink being my favs. Light pink for the nails and neon for my toes.
Protect your eyes against the sun's UV rays just make sure that you pick a pair that suits your face shape.
