Quarantining Has Chicas Subscribing To Club No-Shave And Are You About It Too?

No doubt the process of hair removal can be a pain in the hiney but when it comes to Latinas, these perils can get a little hairier.

Particularly becomes when it comes to being left to our own devices to remove hair in quarantine things just get worse. Sure, many of us are able to shave our legs on our own but what about the other parts of our bodies that might need a little more waxing and help? Turns out, plenty of Latinas are ditching their razors in quarantine and opting to let their follicles have free reign.

(Mind you, this is all despite the fact that as young Latinas we spent most of adolescence begging our mamas to let us shave.)

With this in mind, of course, we had to ask our FIERCE audience how they’ve been managing their body hair in quarantine.

The answers? They’ll make you want to whip your hair back and forth.

Check them out below!

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Astrid Stawiarz / Stringer

Sure, there might be more things peskier than split ends but there’s no doubt they’re a universal issue that haunts us all.

Thanks to dryness, age, heat styling, and even just existing, split ends are a real issue that people around the globe have to deal with and manage every day. As the oldest part of our hair strands, ends need a very particular type of special care. Particularly if you ever want to avoid having those splits ends work their way up the entire shaft of your hair and wreak even more havoc. While snipping off those ends are a surefire way to fix a split end problem, if you’re trying to grow your hair out there are ways to attempt to keep your ends from splitting in the first place.

We scoured the internet for top reviewed split ends. Check out what we found below!

Oribe’s Split End Seal

“My stylist gave me a sample of this to use on my thick, fine, curly, highlighted hair after a particularly strenuous bleach session. I was so impressed, I bought this when the sample ran out.

Any good stylist will tell you, it’s pretty much impossible to actually seal an end once it’s split (beyond making it appear to be sealed for a short period). But it is possible to return moisture and other nutrients to hair that is damaged or close to splitting. And this product is very good at doing that. It seals the hair to keep the good stuff in and protect against future damage from the environment. A little goes a long way if you apply it to wet hair, before applying any other styling products. Seriously, I got six uses out of the sample. It’ll take me a while to run out of the full size bottle.

This stuff really does work miracles on dry hair. The only way I’d ever be able to get rid of all my split ends would be to just shave my head. But that doesn’t mean my hair isn’t healthy. More than one stylist has pointed that out to me. That wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t use quality products like this one.” – Amazon review

Rita HazanTriple Threat Split End Remedy

“My hair deals with a lot of heat styling and hairspray so the ends get a little worse for wear. I’m growing my hair out for my wedding next year and I’m a law student, so I can’t afford to be getting regular haircuts at this point. I got a sample of this product and can’t believe what a difference it made in my hair. I can no longer see the split ends and my hairstyles pretty effortlessly now. I just ordered the full size.”- Sephora review

Moroccanoil Mending Infusion

“LOVE LOVE LOVE Moroccanoil Mending Infusion! This product works great on the ends of my hair that definitely need to be trimmed! It fuses the tips of my hair after styling so I can go longer w out a trim. It makes the ends look healthy & the smell is terrific! I use all of the Moroccanoil products & so far they are working great for me! The only negative thing I can say is that the bottle is made of thick glass which the actual quantity of the product is less than it actually appears to be. However, it takes very little product for the ends of the hair! The product still deserves 5 stars! IF for any reason these products don’t work for you, it has to be that they have been returned “as no longer needed” & possibly tampered with by a dishonest consumer. Amazon will always make things right from my experience. From reviews I’ve read in the past, I felt I needed to add this comment as I have very difficult hair, coarse, frizzy, & unmanageable unless I use an excellent product like ‘Moroccanoil products’!!”- Amazon Review

PATTERN Jojoba Oil Hair Serum

“Love it! Smells like lavender, ahhhh. I love that you can use this on your scalp and hair. It locks in the moisture from the Pattern leave-in so well for super soft and hydrated hair. I’m so happy with everything from this line. I do believe this jojoba oil is a stand out product as well. You can use it in so many ways. I will continue to purchase this and pretty much everything else from this line. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross, you hit the nail on the head!! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this line.” – Sephora review

Design Essentials Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum

“My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had dRead more about review stating Love this strengthening serum!” – Site review

Oh, quarantine. The not so sweet but absolutely necessary measure we all must take during the pandemic to stay healthy and alive. Sounds pretty drastic and dramatic but fortunately, the time in self-isolation means that we’ve experienced some pretty fantastically dramatic switch-ups.
