We women have 99 problems and most definitely, caring for our precious hair IS one of them. After all, nothing makes life more difficult than having to tame unruly hair or simply stepping out with dull, dry, damaged, and brittle hair.
Surely, home remedies and natural ingredients can help restore your hair health. However, the slow results could make you rather impatient, making you turn to salon-based hair treatments, that promise quick results.
If you must turn to them out of love for your hair, here are five of the best hair treatments that you can go for:
1. Get a nourishing hair spa done
Getting a hair spa done regularly can work wonders for your hair. This non-invasive treatment starts with oiling the hair, which can obviously nourish the hair and the scalp. This is usually followed by using steam on the scalp, so as to open the pores and allow a higher absorption of oils and other masks which come next. Once the hair is washed and conditioned, a deep-conditioning hair mask is applied on the hair so as to nourish it even further.
The result? Stronger and shinier hair with no frizziness or brittle ends.
2. Try an Ayurvedic hair treatment
The best and the safest way to ensure a healthy mane is definitely to turn to ayurvedic practices and treatments such as a head massage using bhringaa, brahmi, and other ayurvedic oils packed with the goodness of hair-health-promoting properties.
Additionally, Ayurvedic corrections for imbalances in the body leading to hair thinning and bald patches can also help you a great deal. Consuming a balanced diet and getting panchkarma therapies done regularly can drastically improve your hair health.
From smoothening your hair naturally and boosting hair growth to stopping hair fall–Ayurveda can address all your haircare woes, but you’ve got to be consistent with your efforts and be patient with the expectation of the results. After all, natural things do take time to show their effects, but they’re ultimately safer, sustainable, and better in the long run.
3. You could also give keratin treatment a shot
If you have thick, coarse, and frizzy hair that is super-difficult to tame, getting a keratin treatment done at a trustworthy salon can be your best bet.
Keratin is a fibrous protein found naturally in your hair. Infusing an extra dose of it through a keratin treatment is only going to tame your unruly mane, make your hair shinier, and prevent split-ends.
However, the process has got to be repeated every two to three months because once your hair grows, the newly-sprouted growth would need a keratin infusion as well, unless you want the baby hair to fly out and the hair near the scalp to stay wavy and unruly while the rest of your hair length remains tamed.
4. Then there’s also ozone therapy
Many salons offer this treatment that includes exfoliating the scalp first, followed by an infusion of oxygen, minerals, peptides, growth factors, amino acids, vitamins, and coenzymes to tackle hair problems such as hair fall, damaged hair, dandruff, and an itchy scalp.
The 20-minute long treatment comes with the promise of nourishing your scalp and hair–but at a high cost. So unless you’ve got the moolah, don’t head for it.
5. Hair platelet-rich plasma (hair PRP) treatment
A popular hair treatment at many laser, skin, and hair transplant centres across the country, hair PRP involves drawing blood from a part of your body (usually your arm), separating the platelet-rich plasma from that blood through centrifugation, and injecting this plasma-rich blood into the scalp to promote hair growth.
As per a study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, hair PRP is a safe way to help with hair restoration and thus, can be tried by you guys too.
Now that you know, make an informed choice and get one of these treatments done according to your hair type–and reap the benefits.
