Lockdown has lasted more than a few months, but if you still haven’t gotten into the groove of this new normal that’s totally okay. If you have transformed your home into a well-oiled machine most days, but there are still days where you struggle this is also for you!
Navigating the bathroom and the morning rush
If getting ready to leave the house was hard, getting ready to work from home is undoubtedly harder! Are you finding it difficult to find time to get ready in the morning while getting your kids ready for virtual or class learning?
If there isn’t enough time for you to get ready for work, a quick pass with our wet/dry brush can detangle knotty bed head. Pair with our dry shampoo at your roots to give some life to your hair. Pin hair back or pull it into a bun or pony and call it a day!
If fighting for bathroom space not time is your issue, our cordless hair straightener or convertible cordless curling wand can give you the freedom to style your hair at whatever corner of your home you can.
Twist hair around in sections and run a cordless hair straightener for a new twist on waves. Or use our cordless convertible curling wand to create full curls–with or without its removable attachment. Finish with a hairspray to get ready for a busy day.
Engage your little helpers
During the school day, occupy kids with household chores. It’ll keep them busy and empower them with life skills. Adapt chores for ages and abilities. Not only will it free some time for you to focus on work, but transferring responsibility to your kids can free more time for family time!
Discharge pent-up energy and break up the day with small pauses. Spend lunch together playing games indoors or getting out in the garden or with a walk around the block. If you wore hair loose, tie it in a bun or pony to prevent tangles when tussling with your kids!
Take back some self-care time
Playing teacher–to multiple kids–if you have them and productive worker is tough to balance. Add mounting household responsibilities to this mix and it’s easy to be overwhelmed.
Talk to your partner about balancing work, kids and home, especially during the workweek. When your partner is taking his turn to mind the house, indulge in some self-care time!
Run a bath, give yourself a manicure or pedicure if you want some time alone. Get in touch with a few friends over Skype or meet up for a socially-distant gathering. A half-up French twist is a great option! Curl loose hair with a flat iron or curling wand to add some pizzazz!
