Hair, whether long or short, should be healthy and shiny above all else. What can be done to restore shine and bounce to your hair? Here is an overview of hair treatments, which you can do either at the hairdresser’s or at home
There is no woman who does not dream of having thick, shiny and simply beautiful hair. It makes us feel more attractive. Many factors have a negative impact on the condition of our hair. Certainly, too frequent colouring destroys their structure. Rubbing hair with a towel and using a hair dryer, flat iron, curling iron or even a hair band. The list is quite long.
Often, the condition of hair is also affected by how we eat and whether we have a lot of stress in our lives. But let’s focus on hair treatments. It is important to remember that in order for the effect to be not superficial, hair care must be performed regularly.
Recently, oil treatments have become very popular. Oil treatment improves the condition of hair, gives it shine and makes the hair beautiful. It is very important to choose the right oil and application method. This combination will provide long-lasting and stunning results. The porosity of the hair has a direct impact on the choice of oil. Here is a quick reference guide.
Low porosity hair, which includes straight, shiny, volumeless hair that is difficult to style, needs specific hair care. The ideal oils for this hair type are palm, coconut, babassu and shea.
Macadamia and jojoba oils, as well as sesame, flax, pumpkin seed, rice and marula oils are ideal for those with medium-porous hair, which is weak, lacking shine and moisture and tends to split and frizz.
What about highly porous hair? For this type of hair, which is characterized by brittleness, damaged texture, frizz, static and excessive hair loss, choose argan oil, sweet almond oil, cottonseed oil, evening primrose oil, corn oil or grapeseed oil.
You can choose between two methods. After washing your hair, apply oil for about an hour and rinse out. This is called wet treatment. The other option is dry oiling. Apply the oil of your choice to your hair, wrap it in a shower cap and leave it on, preferably overnight. In the morning, wash and rinse your hair thoroughly. Oil treatments can be applied twice a week to badly damaged hair and once a week to maintain the effect.
In the hair salon you will find a whole range of treatments that aim to regenerate the structure of the hair. Here are the most popular ones:
