Hair Spa

A hair spa is very essential for people dealing with hair problems such as dandruff, hair fall, and damaged hair. It also helps people with healthy hair to maintain shine and good hair condition. A hair spa involves oil massage of the scalp, shampooing, and conditioning. For best results, do hair spa once every two weeks.

Oil massage not only helps improve scalp condition but also give shine to your hair. Scalp massage is an effective treatment for hair loss as it increases circulation and blood flow to the hair follicles. This strengthens the hair follicles and increases the amount of nutrients available for hair growth. Oil massage also helps relieve dry scalp and cure dandruff.

If you have oily hair, massage the oil on your hair, around an inch from your scalp. Skip oil massaging if your hair is too oily.

Heat olive oil for around 20 seconds. Massage your hair and scalp gently with your finger tips with warm olive oil for 10 minutes. Then soak a towel in warm water. Take it out and squeeze it to remove excess of water. Wrap the towel around your hair to cover your scalp and hair completely. Heat will help the oil penetrate the hair. Leave it for 15 minutes.

Hair Spa Step 2: Shampooing

Rinse your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water and use a cleansing or clarifying shampoo to remove the oil from the hair and scalp. While applying the shampoo, massage your scalp one more time with your finger tips for 5 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water. This will remove all the oil, dirt and dandruff.

Hair Spa Step 3: Conditioning

A hair mask protects the outer layer of the hair and increases shine. After shampooing, squeeze any excess water out of hair. Then apply a deep conditioning hair mask to you hair.

Hair Spa Step 4: Residue Rinsing

A hair rinse is used as a final rinse after shampooing. A hair rinse removes shampoo and hair styling product buildup from your hair and tightens the outer layer of the cuticle. This is one of effective ways to make your hair shiny. Do not use a hair rinse too often as it usually contains acids which may strip too much natural oil from the scalp.

If you have light hair color, mix 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/2 cup water to make a rinse. If you have dark hair color, add 1/4 cup vinegar to 1/2 cup water to make a rinse.
