Home Hair Treatments to Rescue your Locks
Now that quarantine restrictions have relaxed a little, going to the salon and getting some overdue pampering services done may be on your to-do list. Not so fast though! The current guidelines by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases strictly limit salon services to haircuts so as to minimize exposure risks. So professional blowouts, treatments and coloring will have to wait a little longer.
That doesn’t mean you have to carry on with having unkempt hair and feeling miserable about it. Self-care is feeling good about how you look, and it certainly plays a role in maintaining your mental health. Fortunately, there are great hair treatments that you can DIY at home to help restore your crowning glory. A big plus: you can score everything on this list through online shopping!

It claims to be able to “treat dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis”. This retails for P1,085 on HairMNL.
