Eid is here and due to the lockdown and restrictions on the openings of beauty salons, many of us are trying different ways to take care of ourselves while being at home. Many of you definitely started to feel that they need a change in looks. So, read our tips below for a hair makeover including DIY haircuts at home.
Equip yourself with the right tools
Forget normal scissors, as they will not give you the precision and definition you need when cutting your hair. They’ll also cause split ends. Also, there’s a reason why hair professionals use special scissors called hair cutting shears and why you need to invest in one when you decide to take that significant step. While you’re at it, make sure to buy as well the rest of the toolkit you will need including professional hair clips, a double-edged comb, and maybe some thinners if you have coarse hair.
Should you cut your hair wet or dry?
It’s all about your type of hair and the look you’ll be wanting to achieve. Wet and damp hair is mostly recommended for a sleek look while dry hair is best for curls, waves or multi-layering. If you’re still not sure what DIY haircut to try, download our haircut guide below where you can choose the DIY haircut that is most suitable for your face shape. Also, remember what haircut you loved last time you were at the salon and try to recreate it.

Choose the right shampoo and don’t skip the conditioner
Since we don’t all have the same hair type, choosing the right product for hair care is crucial. Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Silky is best for thick and curly hair to avoid frizz, while Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume is best for fine hair because it will not weigh it down. If you have color-treated hair then you need a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for you like Pantene Pro-V Colored Hair Repair. Also, excess styling can cause great damage, so conditioning your hair during every wash is a must. Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle’s range of conditioners are the way to go as they contain the power of a hair care treatment in a daily conditioner.
