3 Easy Haircare Tips To Conquer Your Work-From-Home Stress


Shasha Dania •  Oct 21, 2020

It’s been more than half a year since Singapore’s Circuit Breaker measures were implemented, causing many of us to suddenly start working-from-home, or dividing our time between home and the office. During this stressful time, we shouldn’t neglect to take care of our hair either! Our hair is a reminder of physical or emotional stress, and keeping it healthy is an important form of self-care for our own well-being too. ?

If you’re concerned about your hair, you can visit Beijing 101 Hair Consultants to get a personalised hair and scalp consultation and customised treatment! 101 outlets also have private rooms or areas where you can enjoy your treatment. I was lucky to get to try their Intensive Hair & Scalp Treatment for the first time after experiencing some problems with my hair, and you can keep reading to see how my consultation went. You can even try the Deep Cleansing Hair Treatment for just $42 nett including a free Hair Care Gift Set! The usual price for this full set is typically $630 so this is definitely worth it to help restore your hair to its healthy, shiny glory. ? In the meantime, here are some useful tips I learnt to help keep your work-from-home hair healthy!

1. Be proactive if you notice your hair starting to change

If, like me, you’re seeing your hair get steadily worse while you work-from-home - don’t put off seeing someone about it! I didn’t realise how bad my hair had gotten was until I visited 101 for their signature 101 Intensive Scalp Treatment. I had been using shampoo for oily hair for some time but the consultants actually explained that the shampoo could only help remove oil from the surface of my head - without clearing the deeper oil clogs that had formed! ?

The consultant also explained how diet and sleep can affect your hair too - she even correctly guessed that I hadn’t been getting enough sleep lately. ? I don’t often link my daily habits to hair care, so it was a welcome shock to hear what she was telling me. The consultants explained each step of the treatment clearly, so you can understand just what your specific hair needs are.

2. Relook your hair care routine

If you’re not planning to go out of the house, this is the perfect time to simplify your hair care routine! If you’re used to heat-styling your hair or bundling up damp locks into an underscarf, take a step back and give your hair some room to breathe. Air-drying your hair can give it a break from harmful heat or friction, and it’s one less thing you need to worry about too. ?

Remember to keep an eye out for changes in your hair, and don’t be afraid to experiment a bit with your hair care products if necessary. Going from an air-conditioned office to your study room can disrupt the pH balance in your hair, making it turn brittle, greasy, or even dandruff-prone. Haircare specialists like 101 can advise you on what treatment is best for your hair, and even get you started on the proper Corrective Treatment and Deep Cleansing to resolve your worries!

3. Give yourself a massage to stimulate your hair

Did you know that ensuring good blood circulation to our scalp is actually crucial to keeping our locks strong and healthy? It rejuvenates our hair follicles, and can even promote hair growth. An easy way to do this is to massage your scalp while shampooing, or by using a gentle soft-bristled brush to comb out your hair. ?‍♀️

If you’re not sure about your own head massage capabilities, you can put your trust in experts too! Beijing 101 includes a 101 Signature Meridian Scalp Treatment with every treatment session to cleanse and unclog the hair follicles. You can choose between 4 types of massages:

  1. Overall Well Being
  2. Tension
  3. Stress
  4. Sleeping Disorders

They use specific acu-pressure points to target different issues with your body. I actually managed to fall asleep while getting my head and scalp massage - so you can take care of your hair AND get a relaxing massage at the same time! ?

Taking good care of my hair has never been a strong priority of mine, but there’s no time like the present to start! You can enjoy Beijing 101’s Deep Cleansing Hair Treatment and free Hair Care Gift Set for just $42 nett along to get a head start on getting healthy hair back. The usual price for this full set is typically $630 so it’s totally worth it for some well-needed pampering! ?
