Treatments for hair – At home and parlour

Are you unhappy with the hair treatments you have experimented with your hair for last few years? Are you worried that treatments are not giving the promising results? Say good bye to those worries and go through this article to get some latest hair treatments. Here I give you a brief note on a few recent techniques in hair treatment. You can do a few at home itself, while the rest at a beauty parlour. Let us start with hair treatments that can be done at home.

Hot oil massage once in a week for healthy hair

Hair plays an important role in beauty, and if you find sufficient time for hair care, you can improve its looks. Similar to skin, hair is of different types – dry, oily, normal etc, and in the recent times a few more variants such as smoothening, straightened etc have been added. Long hair, curly hair, or hair of any type – one of the most common hair care methods in hot oil massage, and it can be done at home when you have free time. You can choose any one of coconut oil, almond oil or olive oil for hot oil massage. The oil should be heated using second boiling method (place above hot water to heat it), and never allow to boil.

Lukewarm oil can be applied into hair scalp directly using fingers. While massaging use strokes from back side to front side and do it gently. Steam your hair after half an hour. Immerse a towel in hot water and then wrap it around your hair for some time. If you have health problems related to oiling hair such as cold, you can reduce the time for 20 minutes or so. Shampoo your hair and dry it well. Never tie your hair until it is fully dried.

Hot oil is an instant remedy to most of hair issues such as premature grey hair, hair loss, dandruff and split hair. If you make it a habit to do hot oil massaging once in every week, it retains the health of hair.

Protein to improve the strength of hair

Protein protection to hair can be done at home. Hair protection should be done at root to get good results. Protein treatment strengthens the root of hair. If you have done hair treatments like smoothening, straightening etc, you should definitely do protein treatment.

Apply an egg white (beaten well) to the hair soon after hair wash of hot oil treatment. Apply on the root and allow it to dry for half an hour. Massage gently using fingers. Protein of egg enters the root of hair, and strengthens hair roots. Later wash off the hair using some protein shampoo and protein conditioner. In a bucket of cold water, add 2 big spoons of vinegar and wash your hair well.

Using a hair dryer you can dry your hair. Using this technique you can improve the strength and shine of hair. You can give protein treatment to your hair at least once in every month. If you can find a little time for your hair, you can enhance the beauty and strength of hair without the aid of any chemical treatments at parlour.
