Your hair is like a personal mood board. If you are happy and relaxed, your hair will be happy and shiny too, but if you're stressed, it will reflect on your hair in the form of dullness and breakage. So, it only makes sense that you give your tresses a little extra care every now and then to keep them healthy and happy all along.
But going to a salon to treat and pamper your hair every time can be a bit difficult, not to mention heavy on the pockets too. That’s why we mapped out a step-by-step guide to help you experience salon-style deep conditioning hair treatment at home. Read on.
- Step #1: Cleanse your hair thoroughly with shampoo
- Step #2: Apply the hair mask next
- Step #3: Use a hot towel to steam your hair
- Step #4: Rinse out your hair properly with cold water
Step #1: Cleanse your hair thoroughly with shampoo
Start off by washing your hair with a shampoo that is low on sulphates and easy on your hair, like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo. Infused with lightweight argan oil and keratin, this helps your hair restore its keratin (a type of protein that strengthens the hair and prevents breakage) while providing hydration and elasticity. The low sulfate formulation and patented micro-moisture technology smoothen and shield hair from further damage. Gently massage the shampoo over the scalp and work it into a lather. Rinse it thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step #2: Apply the hair mask next
Remove excess water from hair after the wash and scoop out a generous amount of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask onto your palm for the next step. Apply the mask evenly through your hair, from the middle to the ends. The mask is a deeply nourishing hair treatment that moisturises your hair and helps control frizz as well.
Once you apply the mask, gently run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to smooth and detangle them.
Step #3: Use a hot towel to steam your hair
Once your mask is in place, it’s time to bring in that salon feel into the experience. Moisten a towel with hot water, wring out any excess water to ensure it’s not dripping wet when you wrap your mask laden hair with it in a turban style.
Repeat this process every few minutes when you feel the towel cooling down. Keep your hair wrapped up for 30 minutes in this fashion.
Step #4: Rinse out your hair properly with cold water
Now it’s time to wash your hair. Make sure you use lukewarm or cold water for rinsing out the conditioner from your hair. This makes sure that your hair still has the essential oils locked while washing away the dirt and excessive oil.
Pro tip: Keep your hair mask on for 30-40 minutes to reap maximum benefits. However, if you’re running late or don’t have extra time to spare but still want your hair to look smooth, shiny and frizz-free, you can always use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. Once you’ve rinsed off the shampoo, take some conditioner on your palms, and apply along the lengths of your hair, from mid-lengths to tips. Avoid applying conditioner on the scalp as it can weigh down your hair and make it greasy. Leave on for at least one minute, or better yet, check the product label for the exact duration. Rinse off with cold water, and you’re done!
