Let’s just address the elephant in the room: Times are weird as hell right now. Anxiety is high. Chaos, uncertainty, and fear are all around us. People are losing their jobs. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. With salons and spas closed, most of us are forced to forfeit the comforts and conveniences we’re used to. We’re cutting our own hair, removing our own gel manicures, and even changing the way we dress — gloves and masks are pretty much a requirement for going outside.
So it’s safe to say that in this time of quarantine and social distancing, hair care may (understandably) not be in front of mind. However, focusing on the world outside can quickly become too much to take. Indulging in simple pleasures, like babying your hair, can be a form of self-care, whether you’re creating a conditioning mask from kitchen ingredients or trying out a new hair-care product. With fall in full swing and winter coming up, switching up your hair-care routine might be the small pick me up you need.
If you’re fortunate enough to have the disposable funds, a few brands are soldiering on to bring us some newness that might distract you from what’s going on outside for just a little while. Drybar’s limited edition dry shampoo will get you in the holiday spirit, Rahua’s air dry spray is perfect for those lazy days you can’t be bothered to heat style, and Unite’s root spray will make any hairline look snatched.
Read on to see the rest of the best new hair-care products to snap up in November.
