Hair Happy Hour

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

Salon clients around the globe are fretting about what to do in this international crisis. As hair salons are closing world wide in the wake of COVID-19, and cosmetologists along side their clientele are unsure of when their next appointments will be.. here is a list of home care you can do to manage your stressed tresses! So grab your favorite cocktail, it's time for

H A I R Happy Hour!

First up is determining what your hair needs are. Is she thirsty? Has she split up? Is she a dirty girl? Or does all this viral apocalypse just have her on the fritz?! Below I will provide a few of my favorite professional remedies to tend to all your hair needs!

The One That Does It All

I'm going to cut to the chase and not save the best for last! Who else prefers their dessert first?! My top pick for overall haircare is..

Oribe Gold Lust Pre Shampoo Intensive Treatment

How to use - This product goes on DRY hair and is to be followed by a rinse out process. Gently dab into jar with fingertips and you will find that this balm quickly turns into a lustrous liquid oil that you will apply to your parched dry hair. Keep on for 20 minutes (I normally braid it loosely back and either sleep in it for extra nourishment or do some chores around the house before jumping in the shower). Follow up with your normal shampoo and conditioning regimen. *PSA: Less is more!!!! I cannot stress that enough! Use too much and you will find yourself in an oil slick so thick you'll be clarifying your hair for days, but use the correct amount and you will find your hair benefiting with all the goodies!

Benefits: This treatment has a Bio- Restorative Complex that includes Caffeine, Biotin and Niacinamide which helps to repair and nourish and strengthen the cuticle from the inside out. Other ingredients such as Coconut and Macadamia Oil blends protect the hair from damage and moisture loss caused by regular washing and styling, while Rice Bran and Rosemary Leaf Extract, Great Mullein Flower and Glycerin helps to hydrate, reduce frizz, improve manageability and smooth split ends while adding lightweight shine!

Scalp Care

For those of us dealing with product buildup, oil and impurities (especially for my gal pals on day 5+ of dry shampoo!)

Bumble and Bumble Scalp Detox

How to use: On dry hair before showering, section hair, shake well, and apply directly to the scalp. You will notice a nice tingly sensation, it's like pop rocks for your scalp! Massage in and leave on for 3 minutes. Rinse and follow with shampoo and conditioner regimen.

Benefits: With the newest craze ingredient Micellar water, this product helps to gently cleanse the scalp, Panthenol helps prevent over-drying to your locks, and Salicylic acid helps remove pore-clogging debris and dead skin cells. Plus, it feels ahhh-mazing, thanks to a million mini micro-bubbles.

Customized Cocktails

Everyone loves being treated like VIP, and now with TIGI COPYWRITE Custom Care, you can add customized boosters for whatever your hair needs!

TIGI Custom Care Smooth Booster, Shine Booster and Repair Booster

How to use: on wet hair, choose one, two or all three to add to your current conditioner for a boost of life to your hair. Mix 6-12 pumps of booster depending on your hair length in to your diagnosed Custom Care™ Conditioner in your palms, work through mid-lengths to ends. Leave on and indulge for for 3-5 minutes then rinse out. (Note that if you are using more than one booster, split the recommended pump amount between selected boosters).

Benefits: TIGI Smooth Booster helps to tame frizz, improve manageability and to protect against humidity. The Shine Booster creates glossy movement, vibrant shine and sealed cuticles.
