If you’re anything like us, we bet you love yourself some weekend pampering. But there’s only so much sheet masking and DIY face masking you can do, right? We think it’s time to show your hair a little TLC, and what better time to do that than during this lockdown.
No need to be ‘bored in the house, in the house bored’ anymore ‘cause we’re about to show you three cool ways to pamper your tresses and show them the love they deserve.
Give yourself a champi
Since it is best to keep your hair oiled for at least an hour or two (if not more), weekends are the perfect time to do it. Take a little bit of the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Hair Oil and apply it all over your hair and scalp using a cotton ball to ensure maximum absorption. Infused with almond and rose extracts, this hair oil strengthens as well as moisturises your strands. Go on and give your scalp a good massage while you’re at it to get that circulation going!
Let ‘in’ some steam
After you have let the hair oil sit on your hair for a little while, it’s time to give your scalp and hair a little steam. This will help in better absorption of all the nutrients from the oil and result in hair that has a beautiful soft texture. Now if you don’t have a steamer, no need to worry. All you need to do is run your towel under the faucet, wring out the excess water and heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to a minute. Then wrap your head loosely with the towel, making sure all your hair is covered. It’s the perfect DIY hair steam!
Use your conditioner as a mask
Hair masks are an amazing way to give your hair the love and pampering it needs. And the best part about using a hair mask is that it delivers quick yet super effective results. If you don’t have a hair mask on you, simply apply a conditioner like the Sunsilk Lusciously Thick & Long Nourishing Conditioner Keratin Yoghurt all over your scalp and hair, wear a shower cap and go about doing your chores. Remove the cap after a few hours and wash your hair as usual. Leaving the conditioner on for this long will help it penetrate deeper and show better results. This is an amazing yet quick way to give your hair a good masking session. For better results, you can add the steam treatment to this ritual too.

Indulge in a little DIY care
If you are in the mood to whip up your own DIY hair mask, here’s what you could do – take about two tablespoons of the Dove Daily Shine Conditioner in a bowl, and add a little bit of honey to it. (Honey is a great emollient and humectant, which means it will give your hair shine and moisture.) Mix it all together and apply it to your hair like you would a hair mask. Wash it off after about an hour to reveal super smooth and nourished hair minus the frizz. How cool is that?!
