So, has grooming gone by the wayside since we are in quarantine and staying home? Since hair salons are not open, I imagine you are either coloring your hair at home or letting it go grey? Did you take out your Flobee for a haircut?
I had my hair done right before we were homebound and quarantined, but it has been about 6 weeks by now. Since I am not ready to go grey, I contacted my friend and hairstylist about what suggestions she might have. She usually does my hair at my home, visiting every 6 weeks and coloring it in my bathroom. We usually have a glass of wine and have a lot of fun chatting and catching up.
She is going the extra mile and going to mix my formula, make a video for instructions and put it in my mailbox in about 3 weeks. I’ll get my hubby to color the back of my hair and follow the video. So, we will see… I thought it was very thoughtful.
I am waiting longer than usual to color it, as I don’t know if I will have to do it this way again, as it seems we will be homebound for another month or more. I will wait for the haircut as my hair is getting long!
Hubby gets his haircut when I get mine colored normally. His hair is coarse and curly and will turn into a ‘fro when it gets long. I always joke with him and say his hair doesn’t grow long it grows “outward”!
Before she mentioned she would do this, I thought of 2 companies. Besides the boxed hair color, you can order on-line, I thought of E-Salon and Madison Reed.

E-salon will do custom color and send it via subscription when you need it.
I saw this and thought about it as an option before my hairstylist mentioned she would help.
This color is called Merlot on E-salon. This would be my option of I couldn’t get my friend/stylist to mix my color.
The other reputable company is called Madison Reed.
Amonnia free with 100% grey coverage.
This is Sardinia Red. You can upload a photo and see how the color looks on you.
Take the Hair Quiz to see which color is the best match for you.
Speaking of hair, I am plucking the eyebrows when I would usually get them threaded. If not, I will have Brooke Shields’ eyebrows!
We are all getting pretty hairy and need grooming! Even my two little Shih tzus are going to be long haired Shih Tzus by the time we are allowed out. I have given them baths and brush their hair each day so they don’t get knots. We have a routine called “Hairbrush time” I call out, “Hairbrush time” and they come upstairs and jump on the bed. Ready to lay down and get brushed. They know they will get a few treats afterward!
If you are looking for some great hair products to experiment and try at home, check out these products I am using.
Biolage Conditioner- I leave this on for about 10 minutes to deep condition. This container has lasted me a year before replenishing.
Kerestase Oil- Love this and have been using for years.
Heat Protectant- This Kerestase product is my favorite. Since I use hot rollers and a hairdryer, this works wonders.
I would love to hear what you are doing with your hair for this time in quarantine? Going grey, trying new products, home coloring? Let me know in the comments.
