Questions we ask ourself on a daily basis: What day is it? Can I eat breakfast for dinner? When was the last time I washed my hair?

If this sounds like your social distancing roll call...same. We can't help with everything on the list, but we can do something about your haircare situation. Especially because today, the ever-popular Act + Acre Scalp Detox is 30 percent off at Urban Outfitters (along with the rest of the line). If you haven't heard of it, let us enlighten you.

First of all, taking care of your scalp should be a part of your skincare routine all the time (not just in a pandemic), and Act + Acre's luxurious, cold-processed formula will ensure you give yours the TLC it deserves. A few things we noticed when we tried it for the first time: The formula looks and feels like an oil, which seems counterintuitive to cleansing, but all you need to do is apply it and wait 20 minutes. During this time (in which we took a Zoom call, but we could have just as easily started an episode of Tiger King post-office hours), it gets to work breaking down product buildup and delivering much-needed vitamins, minerals and amino acids to the hair follicles. Oh, and the whole cold-processed thing means the ingredients are more efficacious and nutrient-charged.

After we rinsed it out, we noticed that it left our scalp feeling clean, balanced and not at all irritated. It was just the reset we needed to give our under-washed hair a little zshuzsh. The directions say to use it weekly for best results, so at least we know we're doing something good for our scalp once a week (even if our hair is slicked back into a messy bun the rest of the time).
