Feeling like every day is a bad hair day?

Many of us are struggling to keep our hair looking and feeling salon-fresh while at home. Dark roots, gray streaks, lack of shine and outgrown cuts are quickly becoming our new normal, and it may be weeks — possibly months — before we can head to the salon to get a much-needed touch-up.

You can tackle some hair problems at home, however. Celebrity hairstylist Justin Anderson shared a few must-have products from his dpHUE collection to maintain our manes between appointments.

Anderson, whose celebrity clients include Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miley Cyrus and Margot Robbie, understands that hair care contributes to our overall self-confidence.

“Even though we’re all in quarantine right now because of the coronavirus, it’s still important for us to feel our best because that keeps our mood lifted and our spirits high,” he shares with Yahoo Lifestyle.

Anderson explains it’s a good time to give our hair a break and pull back from shampooing. He recommends:

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

This shampoo substitute gently cleanses your hair without stripping its moisture.

“It’s not going to mess with your color but it’s a great everyday shampoo alternative,” he says.

Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub

The ACV scrub is loaded with pink Himalayan sea salt, which helps treat the one area Anderson says we often overlook — the scalp.

“You want to make sure that your scalp is nice and clean because that’s where healthy hair happens,” he advises.

Use it weekly to keep buildup at bay.

Color Fresh Shampoo & Conditioner

This combo is super gentle and ideal for those who aren’t fans of apple cider vinegar.

“It’s a great way to keep your hair clean and it’s not going to strip out your good hair color,” he says.

Root Touch-Up Kit

If those pesky grays are showing, Anderson recommends his at-home root touch-up kit in seven different shades.

“There’s no way to mess this up,” he explains. “You’re just going in and touching up your roots exactly where you have the grays coming in.”

The kit includes permanent hair color, color activator, disposable mixing bowls, gloves, processing caps, an applicator brush and dpHUE Color Fresh Shampoo and Conditioner samples.

Color Touch-Up Spray

For a super-easy way to cover noticeable roots, try the Color Touch-Up Spray. It comes in 10 shades and delivers the perfect temporary color that lasts until your next shampoo. The dual-action nozzle, with two spray settings, allows for precision and blending of color.
