For many of us, our hair is our crowning glory, and a luscious set of locks, kept in check with regular trips to our favourite luxury salon, can be all that’s needed to spend each and every day feeling like a million dollars.

But as the Covid-19 pandemic continues and, due to current lockdown restrictions, trips to your preferred stylist are out of the question, you might be feeling more like a few thousand pounds at the moment, and wondering how you can get those tremendous tresses looking back to their best at home.

From hair loss to split ends, dullness to excess oil, there are all manner of hair issues that might currently be plaguing you, making those daily Zoom boardroom meetings practically unbearable.

But the good news is, with a few simple tweaks to your routine, you can have your hair looking back to its lustrous best in a matter of weeks – all it takes is a little TLC, and of course, a dose of the luxury treatment at home.

Add a weekly hair mask


While it might be tempting to do a DIY job on those split ends at home, deep down, you know that only the best stylists the world has to offer should ever be let loose on your tresses. So, until you can book your next appointment, settle for the next best thing, and invest in a high-end luxury hair mask to implement into your routine once a week.

A quality hair mask will rehydrate and restore your locks and minimise the appearance of split ends – as well as adding some life and shine back into your hair and leaving it soft and healthy-looking.

Add some hair-friendly vitamins to your diet

As they say, beauty comes from within, and a healthy diet is the most important thing to implement if your hair is looking tired, lacklustre, and generally past its best.

It’s simple enough to correct your diet, and by adding a wide variety of colourful fruits and vegetables and ensuring you eat a portion of protein with every meal is a great place to start. Eating the rainbow will ensure that you’re getting your daily dose of vitamins A and C, as well as a variety of B vitamins – in particular, biotin.

Studies have shown that deficiencies in vitamin A and biotin can potentially lead to hair loss, so load up now to prevent this in the future. An excellent multi-vitamin can help you to get back on track – be sure to look for hair friendly ingredients and remember to go high-end with your purchases, because in the supplements world, you get the quality you pay for.

Consider a hair transplant


Hair loss is something that can happen to all of us at some point in our lives, and whether it’s a minimal amount of thinning you have to deal with or a much larger issue, there’s no denying that it can prove detrimental to your confidence and wellbeing.

Even so, there are plenty of innovative new treatments available that will help you restore your hair to its former glory – look for luxury products containing minoxidil or finasteride, which will help with hair regrowth.

If you’re OK with going under the knife and don’t mind waiting until lockdown restrictions are lifted, then you have other options, too.

Hair transplants in the UK and much of Europe will generally cost you in the region of £5,000 up to £30,000. However, the increase in health tourism has made hair transplants relatively inexpensive in some locations, and as many celebrities have chosen to do in recent years, you can head to the global epicentre for hair transplants which is Turkey to get yours for less than £1,500.

Many of the world’s top hair transplant experts offer their services at Turkish clinics, which is why hair transplants in Turkey have become so popular. A three-day stay in the capital, Istanbul, is the perfect getaway to combine with your procedure – and you can relax in any of the several luxury five-star hotels in the city while you recuperate.
