The 5 Most Common Hair Problems During Lockdown – How Smith and Smith Hair Salon Can Help!

One of the most frustrating things that many of our clients have faced over the last year with the lockdowns is their hair has suffered with various problems.

Whether your hair woes are caused by stress, illness or a lack of knowledge on how to care for your hair, the team at our Loughborough hair salon are here to advise on the best ways to treat your locks during the lockdown….

#1 Struggling With Dry Hair This January?

Whether you’re embracing Dry January or not, one thing that certainly should not be dry this month is your hair!

A combination of cold weather and central heating can play havoc with your hair’s moisture levels. If your hair is feeling dry, static or stressed, infuse moisture into it with the thirst quenching Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint range of products. The dreamy smelling formula cleanses, soothes and replenishes dry, unruly hair.

Moisture-rich conditioners and amino acids improve strength, shine and manageability, while calming lavender, mint and tea tree soothe mind and spirit.

#2 Stay Blonde Not Brassy

Unable to visit Smith and Smith for a colour refresh, but still leaving the house for work or having Zoom meetings each day?

Give your colour a refresh this lockdown with Paul Mitchell Platinum Blonde Shampoo, to cool brassy tones and leave your blonde looking brighter for longer. 

#3 Lockdown Causing Thinning Hair?

If you are experiencing hair loss or thinning hair during the lockdown, you’re not alone. Anxiety, stress and even catching the virus can lead to hair fall.  

Hair loss can be caused by many factors and stress is just one of these. Take the stress away from your fragile scalp and energise your hair with Paul Mitchell Scalp Care products. The exclusive Regeniplex® blend contains ingredients which work to stimulate the scalp and provide fuller, thicker hair. Hair looks more volumised as each strand is treated and plumped. 

#4 Damaged, Heat Stressed Strands?

Is your hair suffering from broken bonds and damage from heat styling? Lockdown is the perfect time to give your hair a break from the tongs and breathe some life back into your locks. Paul Mitchell Neuro Liquid Lather HeatCTRL® Shampoo is a colour-safe and sulphate-free shampoo that gently cleanses heat-stressed strands, removing dirt and buildup from hair styling products.

This sweet smelling formula contains exclusive HeatCTRL® technology to help create an ideal foundation for protection against damage from thermal styling tools.

#5 Conscious Products That Work? 

If taking care of the planet and yourself are your New Year Resolutions, but you’re dubious about how effective environmentally conscious products can be, look no further than Paul Mitchell! Not only is the fabulous Tea Tree range a fan favourite, but they are also phasing in using plastic with an average of 75% PCR (post consumer recycled) content, incorporating the maximum amount of PCR possible without compromising package quality. Reusing existing plastic instead of creating new will have significant environmental benefits for the planet:⁠

•Reducing fossil fuel use by 41%, the equivalent of 7810 barrels of oil.⁠
•Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 1162 metric tons of CO2 , the equivalent of 249 cars off the road for a year.⁠
•Reducing water use by 156 million gallons- enough to fill 236 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
