Working From Home Hair Hacks

Lockdown, who? By now, you know the drill, stay at home, wear a mask, keep your distance. With new stay at home orders worldwide, working from home isn’t going anywhere in 2021. While salons all over remain closed, we want to empower you to make the most of your time at home for the better health of your hair.

Working from home is the ideal scenario to get your hair the healthiest it can be during lockdown. Check-in with your hair by answering a few questions: Is your hair color-treated? When was the last time you OLAPLEX’d? Is your hair dry? How often do you style with thermal heat and accessories? Are you outside in the sun often, or do you experience harsh weather such as wind or cold?

If the answer to one or more of these is yes, you experience hair damage in several ways and likely daily. Working from home allows you ample time to get your hair on the right track with minimal effort! A healthy hair care routine is your new favorite co-worker, from an intensive OLAPLEX treatment to addressing moisture and frizz.

Maintain the integrity of your hair and extend the longevity of your color by rebuilding bonds with the OLAPLEX Intensive At-Home Treatment using OLAPLEX N°.0 and N°.3. Whether you’re in a home office, working from the dining table, or cozy on a couch, you’re in the perfect position for a treatment! Dampen the hair with N°.0, and comb through to ensure saturation. Leave the treatment on the hair for ten minutes, then apply N°.3 directly on top. Comb N°.3 through the hair to ensure saturation, then leave the treatment on for an additional ten minutes or longer!

Here’s the rub–you’re working from home for hours on end, which means more time for OLAPLEX to work on your hair! We love the results we see when people leave the treatment on longer. Whenever you’re ready, maximize your time by washing with OLAPLEX N°.4 and N°.5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Zoom calls are another perfect opportunity to get your treatment on. You can even do this with the Intensive At-Home Treatment by styling your hair while the treatment is on. Opt for a high bun, braids, or even a sleek wet look by combing your hair back.

Develop a styling routine to vary your looks during the week. A healthy hair pro tip is to make as many of those styles heat-free to keep your hair healthy! If you use heat, such as curling your hair, use OLAPLEX N°.7 Bonding Oil as it protects from heat up to 450º Fahrenheit.

With OLAPLEX on your home team, it’s easy to get creative with ways you can work from home while treating your hair. OLAPLEX is safe to use as often as needed. Consider OLAPLEX N°.6 Leave in Styling Treatment ‘cocktailed’ with OLAPLEX N°.7 for maximum hydration, shine, protection, and manageability. You could work that mini treatment into a phone call and let OLAPLEX do the rest! For our UK customers, you can find all your favorite OLAPLEX products here.

Not only are you working, but you’re also creating a healthy canvas to prep your hair for when salons reopen while showing yourself some love and care at home. What’s your favorite way to use OLAPLEX at home?
