With the city on lockdown and hair salons closed for over a month in many states, actress La La Anthony decided to make her own deep conditioner to moisturize her long tresses.
The mother-of-one whipped up her own DIY (do it yourself) deep conditioner at home, according to the NY Post's Page Six.
"I have been mixing caster oil and avocado," said the 40-year-old actress. "I just really got into the henna mask [as well]. I never even knew about that before and my hair has been doing really good. I'm hoping this is something I can keep up with."
La La is fortunate to have her own on-set stylist, but the coronavirus pandemic has forced women like La La to return to their roots and maintain their own locks in their kitchens.
"I wash my hair like every two or three days now because I'm working [out] and get sweaty," she continued. "I'm not able to do that [in] my regular life because I'm so busy."
The "Power" actress added that taking a break from professional styling has done wonders for her hair.
"I'm not putting any heat on my hair. I condition it and keep it healthy. It's nice just to let it breathe and rest. Same thing with my nails. I just popped them off a while ago, and I think my nails are thanking me. Everything is getting a rest."

But before watching the video, be careful not to add every essential oil in your kitchen. Avoid the temptation to overdo it. Remember, less is more.
And if you must add a conditioner to your DIY deep conditioner, make sure to check the expiration date on the bottle and don't use a 10-year-old bottle of 6-in-1 reconstructor deep conditioner like your auntie did.
Over conditioning your hair can cause more harm than never conditioning your hair.
