But so what? You apply quite a lot of hair care products in order to keep your hair ‘healthy’ and experiment with a variety of styling products so that it look ‘gorgeous’. You do not at all need to worry about it, right? WRONG! You are rather causing more damages to your hair. Unbelievable but true!
Why don’t go for a natural hair spa at your home and pamper your hair in salon-style? It neither involves chemical compounds nor takes much of your time. Above all, it does not burn a hole in your wallet? So, are you interested ladies? Well, let us learn the 5-step process together:
First Step: Massaging
Start with massaging your scalp and hair with a good quality hair oil for at least 20 minutes. Make sure that the oil has great hair nourishing capacity. You can either go for almond oil that is rich in vitamin E or prepare your own hair oil mix by blending equal quantity of coconut oil, olive oil, sesame oil and almond oil together. Use your fingertips and massage gently in circular motions so that the blood flow throughout your scalp is increased and the hair follicles are stimulated for a better hair growth. Allow it to sit for next couple of hours.
Second Step: Steaming
For steaming your hair, heat some water in a pot and dip a towel when it is lukewarm. Take it out of the water and squeeze well to eliminate the extra water from it. Then, wrap up the warm towel around your entire head so that your oiled hair gets completely covered by it. Leave for 20-25 minutes. This way, the oil will easily get absorbed by your scalp and each of your hair strands will get proper nourishment. However, make sure that the steam of the towel does not reach your scalp. Or else, it will start to react.

Third Step: Washing
Now, it is time to give your hair a gentle wash with a mild shampoo. It is of utmost importance that you use only lukewarm or fresh cold water for this purpose. Washing your scalp and hair with hot water may lead to hair fall, dandruff, dry scalp and severe irritation.
Fourth Step: Conditioning
Once you are done with shampooing, condition your hair with a homemade conditioner. You can simply boil some water and tea leaves in a pot and pour a bit lemon juice into it to come up with an excellent hair conditioner. Use it carefully so that you do not end up over conditioning or under conditioning your hair.
Fifth Step: Applying Hair Mask
Finally, complete your at-home hair spa treatment with the application of a good hair mask. In order to get the best results, identify your hair issues and choose your hair mask accordingly. If you have dry hair, go for a pack made of olive oil, honey and egg. For oily hair, a mixture of aloe gel and lemon juice will work the best. Those who are struggling with dandruff can choose a mask containing reetha, amla, shikakai and henna powder. To add extra shine to your dull hair, opt for a pack rich in curd, honey and fenugreek seed powder. And if your hair is completely damaged, restore its life with avocado and curd hair mask.
If you want to get the best results, try this natural hair spa at least at least 4 times a month. So, are you ready?
