I’m not gonna lie, being isolated indoors has been difficult. Since I’m not currently working, it’s been a big adjustment! I’m used to being out most nights of the week for work related events/shoots so this has been a total 180 for me. Since I’m autoimmune, I haven’t left my apartment complex at all- I’m fortunate to be able to get everything I need delivered. With the exception of a 10 minute walk to my apartment mailbox, I haven’t actually been outside of my building parking lot for 45 days.
It’s funny because before I started doing food photography and influencer work, I was home ALL THE TIME. Constantly being on the go has made it harder for me to slow down and actually relax so I’m trying to take advantage of this time and actually take care of myself. One thing I did right before we went on lockdown was try out this Nutree Brazilian Bottox Expert hair mask. I have a lot of hair issues- I’m on some pretty strong medications for my chronic conditions and sadly, one of the side effects is hair loss. Since I have a lot less hair to work with, I try to take good care of what I have left- I try to avoid using heat styling products and I like to do moisturizing treatments at least once a week.
This mask was very easy to use and made my hair softer and smoother immediately. The first thing I noticed was that it was easier to dry and comb through right away. There were no strange fumes and the product smelled pretty nice too- it also rinsed easily. The results last 4-8 weeks and the tub is quite large so there’s months worth of applications (depending on how much/long your hair is).
Who else has been enjoying some self care for the past two months? Stay safe and well, everyone!!!
