Before you start groaning thinking that this is yet another COVID-19 communication, please know that we have your health but also your hair at heart! Long after the dust has settled on these dark days, you’ll look back at how you survived quarantine to emerge with your best hair ever.
Right now the prospect of going a few weeks without a trip to your salon is probably filling you with fear. But trust us, at Number 4 Hair Care we really do care about so much more than (just) your hair.
Blowouts and Dye jobs
In an age of blow out bars and extreme dye jobs and God forbid the re-emergence of the perm, it’s not just your immune system that’s taking punishment. There is hope out there. You can remerge from self-isolation looking and feeling happier and healthier than ever before. So use your time wisely.
Make a few sneaky little adjustments to your usual routine and you could end up thanking the coronavirus for delivering you the shiniest, sleekest and healthiest hair EVER. I know, (eye roll, eye roll), right now you’re worried about what you’re going to have for dinner, never mind what your hair looks like.
With these top tips though, you can keep your hair (and yourself) healthy during the coronavirus.
N4’s Coronavirus Essential Hair Survival Guide
Don’t Spend your Days in Quarantine Washing your Hair!
It’s important that you continue to wash your hair and stick to your usual routine but don’t, out of boredom, suddenly start a twice daily hair washing routine thinking you can “wash that virus right out of your hair”. Just be sure to use the right shampoo for your hair type.

Spend Smart and Avoid Sulfates, Parabens, and Nasties
What if Mother Nature is sending us a signal to slow right down and appreciate the beauty in the everyday? We recommend you spend this time wisely, moisturizing and hydrating your hair as well as nourishing yourself from within. Pack your diet with immune-boosting rainbow-colored fruit and vegetables and invest in a super repairing conditioner.

Don’t Sweat It! Dial Down the Heat
If coronavirus has got you in a hot sweat, then stay away from the flatiron for a few days! Give your hair a chance to heal and repair. If you have a date with the sofa, keep your hair au-naturel for a change! However, if you have back-to-back video conference calls lined up, quickly get changed out of those PJ’s, grab yourself a heat-protectant spray and glam it up before you heat the work zoom chat room!
We love N4’s Super Comb Prep & Protect. It does for your hair, what quarantine can do for your body. Protects you and keeps you safeguarded.
Take this Time to Treat Yourself
Get your partner to give you a relaxing scalp massage. You might be feeling tense and anxious right now but hands down, you’ll feel so much more relaxed and rejuvenated after a scalp treatment. Not just that, but by keeping your hair follicles clean and healthy, you can prevent blockage and inflammation that can lead to thinning hair in later life. You’ve been through enough already! The last thing you want is to suffer from stress hair loss too.
Shine like the Phoenix Rising from the Ashes
This is your time to shine baby shine. If you’re feeling a little dull and down, we’re here at N4 to help you turn that frown upside down! Who can resist smiling when their hair is super soft, shiny, sleek and manageable? Gotchya! No-one right? It’s like the instant antidote to pretty much everything. Great hair always wins the day!
So give yourself permission to splurge a little while you’re in self-isolation. Go for N4’s Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil and you can defy Doctor’s orders with the kind of time-defying shine you’d only ever expect to receive from a professional blow-dry.
Just like a good marriage, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer and come rain or shine, Number 4 High Performance Hair Care is there for you. Stay safe everyone and keep your hair and your hygiene standards on high alert.
