Nithya Lakshmi | July 30, 2018

Are you looking to treat your hair in the comfort of your own home? A home hair spa is very simple. Yes! Salon style hair spa can now be done easily at home with the help of natural products rather than chemical-based substances. This DIY (do-it-yourself) hair spa is easy, affordable and convenient, with no side effects. Blindly opting for a hair spa with certain ingredients and looking for certain specific benefits of that spa is a waste. You need to understand about the different types of hair masks that are available and how they can affect your hair.

A hair spa not only refreshes your hair but also treats your hair and scalp. It nourishes your hair and scalp with all the required proteins and vitamins- that help your hair look rejuvenated and healthy in the long run. A hair spa also helps to promote hair growth. 

Follow these five simple steps for a DIY hair spa at home! 


1) Oil

Use a pure natural oil such as coconut oil, almond or olive oil for your hair. Warm the oil for few minutes and then apply it onto the roots of your scalp with your fingertips.


2) Massage

Massaging is an essential part of any hair spa. A proper massage will improve the blood circulation on your scalp and will promote hair growth. So gently massage your hair for 10-20 minutes.


3) Steam

Steaming is another important step. Steaming allows the oil you have applied on your hair to penetrate deep into your hair roots and work its magic on them as well.  Just wrap a hot towel around your hair and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, you can also use a steamer or a bowl of hot water with a towel to cover yourself, to let the steam from the bowl pass onto your hair. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo after steaming.


4) Hair Mask

A hair mask is mainly used to nourish your hair and prevent hair fall. There are a lot of hair spa masks that you can try at home which is natural and effective, with no side effects.

Few easy to prepare hair masks to try at home, you may include: 

  • Egg and olive oil paste for dry hair
  • Aloe vera and oil  mask for oily hair
  • Avocado and curd mask for damaged hair
  • Fenugreek with curd and honey paste for dull hair
  • Cucumber and olive oil mixture for hair growth
  • Apple cider vinegar mask for dandruff treatment

After steaming, just apply any one of these hair masks (depending on the type of hair you have and your hair problems) and allow it to settle in your hair for 15-20 minutes.


5) Shampoo

Finally, wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo. Use a conditioner, leave it for 10 minutes before you wash it off. Use warm or cold water while rinsing your hair as hot water can damage your hair.


Repeat these five steps once a month and you have your own DIY hair spa at home!
