Heading out to a beauty parlour for a luxurious hair spa is not going to be an option for the next couple of months, which means that you yourself are in charge of your mane. A hair spa can work wonders to instantly hydrate dry tresses and breathe life into dull hair, but doing it at home can seem daunting. Fortunately, it is not as difficult as it sounds. All you need is a good conditioner base and some natural ingredients to get started!
Pick a day when you can indulge your tresses in some TLC, and follow these steps to give yourself a quick hair spa at home…
Start by choosing the right conditioner base for your hair. The trick is to pick a sulphate-free formula that won’t interact with the natural ingredients in a negative way. One of our favourite conditioners of 2021 is the Tresemme Pro Protect Sulphate Free Conditioner. Infused with Moroccan argan oil, the formula works as a highly nourishing and moisturising base for your hair spa mix. It is safe for chemically treated hair and so is gentle on all hair types!
Some of the natural ingredients you can add to it are:
- Honey - For dry and dehydrated tresses
- Egg - For damaged, breakage-prone hair
- Olive oil - For dull hair and issues like dandruff, split-ends and frizziness
- Avocado - For rough, coarse and porous hair
- Aloe vera - For heat-damaged and chemically treated hair
Once you have your mix ready, follow these steps:
Step 01: A hair spa treatment is most effective on freshly washed hair. After the shower, brush your hair thoroughly to get rid of any knots and tangles. Section it into 4-5 parts in order to apply the mix properly. If your hair feels dry while sectioning, spray some rose water or regular water on it to slightly dampen it.
Step 02: Apply the texture all over your hair, paying close attention to the mid-lengths and the ends. Gently apply the mix in a downward motion and comb through with a shampoo comb to distribute it evenly. Keep it on for 15-20 minutes; you can slowly massage your own scalp while waiting for the product to work its magic. Alternatively, you can wrap your hair in a warm towel too to enhance the benefits of the hair mask.
Step 03: Use the Tresemme Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo to gently wash off the product. Follow it up with the conditioner again, and air-dry or towel-dry your hair. Finish up with a frizz protect serum to complete the process. And just like that, you’ll have beautiful looking tresses without stepping out of the house!
