Have you always been yearning for a lustrous mane and thinking of hair spa? Hair care sure does require continuous efforts over a prolonged period to keep your hair healthy, thick and luminous. Sometimes we do not have enough time and energy to visit a hairdresser to maintain our hair. At other times, we do want to expose our hair to chemical substances used at the salons. In any such case, we still want to take care of our hair and for that, we can do hair spa at home using all natural and chemical free products. Are you aware of benefits of hair spa?
Benefits of hair spa
It rejuvenates your scalp, hair cuticles and roots making them look gorgeous, bouncy and shiny.
It restores the essential vitamins and oils required for our hair and improve blood circulation.
Let’s admit it saves us a good deal of time and money as the salon guy is sure to suggest 10 other series of treatments for our hair, LOL.
Since we use chemical free products and natural sources of enrichment, it is good for our hair in the long run.
6 easy steps for hair spa routine at home
(1) You should know hair and scalp type.
(2)The first four steps are common for all hair types.
(3)Step 5 has alternative methods for different hair types.
Step 1: Use coconut oil in summers and mustard/olive oil in winters to massage your scalp and hair for about 15 minutes. Leave it on for minimum an hour. (You can also use any other oil of your choice)
STEP2: The next step is providing steam to your hair. Use a cotton towel and dip it in warm water. Quickly squeeze out the excess water and wrap your hair in it trapping the steam. This will loosen your hair cuticles and allow the treatment to penetrate into the roots of your hair.
STEP3: After about 15 – 20 minutes wash your hair with a mild shampoo to clear off the oil and dirt trapped in your hair.
STEP4: Apply a conditioner to your locks to prevent them from tangling.
STEP5: The final step is to apply a homemade hair mask which provides deep conditioning to the hair.
