While we’ve all slightly adjusted to connecting through screens, daily outdoor exercise and perfecting our “ISO” selfies, Zoom calls and virtual happy hours have completely changed the game when it comes to WFH (working from home) chic. While you might still be able to pull off a button up blouse with sweatpants, when it comes to your hair - the top knot has slowly become a “no-no.” With busy schedules, the addition of home-schooling and early morning meetings, we’ve got a few WFH hair essentials that are sure to ease your beauty routine while upgrading your style.
Play with texture
Cutting down on heat styling is one of the best ways to revive natural texture. With the extra downtime lately, learning to embrace your natural texture has never been more in. As you transition your hair care routine from blow-drying to air-drying, swapping out your cleansing choice is key. Textured hair needs extra TLC and using a cleansing cream in lieu of your normal shampoo choice can add the nourishment strands desperately need.

Try something new!
Trying on new hairstyles has been one of the most fun elements of the past few weeks. It is also one of the best ways to transition second-day hair. Pop a brain into your pony or opt for an elegant half-up style. Certain styles hold better on hair with a little grit to it. To prep strands, simply spritz hair with dry shampoo and you’ll already be halfway there.
Invisible Dry Shampoo for oil absorption with no residue on dark colors!
Deep Clean Dry Shampoo for maximum oil absorption and clean.
Create a weekly “salon-day”
If salon blowouts were a part of your weekly self-care routine, be sure to recreate the salon experience at home. Pick a designated day of the week and make it your “at-home salon day.” To start, cleanse and apply a mask to set the mood. Just like in the salon – don’t forget the heat protection before you blow-dry, and be sure to finish with a styler that will add a little extra oomph to your look and extend your style. The finishing portion of your blowout is really what elevates your style, which is why we suggest using Redken Triple Dry 15 to finish. By adding hold without residue, this styler adds texture and creates the perfect undone look with ease. Added bonus: it can also be used to refresh second-day hair for a quick pick-me-up!
