Home Hair Care During Isolation

Look After Your Hair at Home – Top Tips by Coco Hair Salon in Eastbourne

During these challenging times, it’s important to firstly look after your health and wellbeing. Your top priority should be staying safe and following Government advice surrounding the spread of Coronavirus.

We also understand that lots of our clients are concerned about the condition or their hair styles and hair colour during an extended period of isolation. Below we have some top tips to help you through this time. 

Areas We Cover





Can I Cut My Own Hair During Isolation?

Your hair is only likely to grow half an inch in one month, so there’s really no need to panic. Whatever you do, please do NOT cut your own hair at home – the results are highly likely to be disastrous – and whilst we are also isolating, we cannot fix it for you.

Use this time as an opportunity to get your hair looking as healthy as possible, invest in some professional hair masques and apply these regularly to keep your hair hydrated and healthy looking. Check out some tutorial videos on how to style your hair or how to do a professional looking blow dry yourself.

Try A Different Hair Style

When you wear your hair in the same style every day, it can look flat and your roots may look darker than they actually are. Try changing your parting to the other side, or try an eye-catching style (or glitter!) to draw attention away from the roots.

This is particularly effective on highlighted hair as your natural colour will already have grown through and you can alter the style to disguise the growth. Intricate plaits, space buns or even a half up half down bun style would be great for disguising roots. Summer is also a great time to try out headscarves and hats, as you should be keeping your hair protected from UV rays, so now’s the time to channel your inner celeb with a range of cool hair coverings!

Can I Colour My Hair At Home?

We use only the highest quality hair colour in our salon with quality pigments and conditioning agents to protect your colour and condition. It is tailored to you and, especially with highlights, we are likely to use multiple colours to create a bespoke, multi dimensional effect on your hair.  

Many shop bought box hair dyes are prone to fading and changing colour, or not looking AT ALL like they do on the box. This is because they are a “one size fits all” colour which don’t take into account your starting colour, natural highlights and hair condition. 

We’ve all heard the hair colour horror stories of blonde hair turning brassy or green and you may need a professional hair colour correction once we are open again – which will take both time and money to rectify.  

Cover Your Roots at Home

If your roots are dragging you down during isolation, why not try a concealer touch-up kit which allows you to discreetly enhance, retouch or blend away greys, with a dry, satin finish. Micro-fine pigments blend seamlessly with your existing shade to conceal with no flakiness or residue, all the way to your next wash.
