When quarantine started, many of us were excited to give our hair and skin some relief from the daily use of tools and products. It was cute at first, but it has now been months since we have given our hair some TLC. I have first handedly seen how the women in my family have been living day-to-quarantine day with their hair tied up in a frizzy bun. Well, I’m here to give the señoras and señoritas in my family (and yours) my product recommendations to go from crazy hair to glamorous dos. 

1. For my mamá with color-treated hair.

My mom is like most moms; she puts everyone else before herself. La señora works two jobs and only pampers herself a few times a year by dyeing her hair. Beyond that, she really doesn’t take care of her hair. I decided to treat my mom to my favorite leave-in treatment that restores hair. The Redken Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Conditioner, will hydrate my mom’s cabello to new heights and prevent it from breaking, leaving her ends soft and smooth. To pamper the hard-working señora in your life, even more, head over to Ulta Beauty during the Gorgeous Hair Event and treat her and yourself to the Redken Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Conditioner 50% off on October 11! 

2. For my younger prima who refuses to brush her hair. 

Since my prima was a toddler, she had a hate-hate relationship with brushing her hair. She always struggled with tangles therefore brushing was out of the question. For me, brushing was never my favorite either until I tried the Tangle Teezer Thick & Curly Salsa Red Detangling Hair Brush (on sale October 15 at Ulta Beauty). This little tool is designed specifically with our thick and curly hair in mind. The brush is so smooth on my curls, it goes through like a knife through butter. I know I’m about to blow my little prima’s mind away. Want more haircare love for you or your loved ones from Ulta Beauty?

3. For my tía who often forgets to touch-up her roots.

Caring for canas is a full-time job that requires a lot of maintenance and involves smelly fumes. That’s probably why my favorite tía refuses to touch-up her roots — and to be honest, I can’t blame her. Luckily I discovered Color Wow’s Root Cover Up, 50% off on October 16 during Ulta Beauty’s Gorgeous Hair Event. This professional root cover-up sticks right to the root of the hair to cover greys and blend right into the hair’s natural hair color. I know tía is going to be hooked the second she sees how easy it is to blend her grey hairs with the rest of her hair using this odor-less formula. I’m sure she will also love how quick and easy she’ll be able to cover her canas. 

4. For my sister who thinks deep-conditioning is only done at salons.

I never used to use leave-in conditioners, but the day I tried the IGK Thirsty Girl Coconut Milk Leave-In Conditioner, I knew this was going to become a regular part of my beauty routine. The conditioner instantly gave my hair a post-salon look and feel. Knowing how my sister does the bare minimum to treat her hair, I know this product is going to change the way she thinks about hair treatment. Since this product is 50% off on October 17 during Ulta Beauty’s Gorgeous Hair Event, I’m grabbing one for myself and one for my sister. 

5. For myself who loves big, lush hair. 

I have always loved pumping up my locks with volume-enhancing products. One of my favorites is Fekkai Full Blown Texturizer Spray. As quarantine became a norm in our lives, I admit that I neglected taking care of my hair. However, now that this line is 50% off on October 17 during the Ulta Beauty Gorgeous Hair Event, I am going to take full advantage and hoard the entire line for myself. And while I’m feeling so generous, I might as well book an appointment at The Salon at Ulta Beauty for the full experience – Did you know there is a salon in every Ulta Beauty store?! You can even book an appointment in the app or at ulta.com/beautyservices!

So there you have it. Thanks to Ulta Beauty, I was able to find something for all the luscious-haired Latinas in my life and we’re going to spend the rest of quarantine with our hair looking flawless. See what they can do for you and your loved ones during Ulta Beauty’s Gorgeous Hair Event. Happy Shopping!
