Step-by-step guide on Hair Spa at home
You don’t always have to think of buying flowers, chocolates or cards as Mother’s Day gift ideas to make her feel special. Sometimes, you can also surprise her by gifting her a relaxing hair spa session. Let’s show you how:
Step 1: Set the surroundings right
The first step in giving your mom a memorable hair spa is to set the surroundings right. And by that we mean, ask her to take the day off, keep aside all the tasks for the day and relax. Get her a comfortable set of loose clothes and make sure that she sits in a comfortable position to prevent neck sprains. Next, play some soft music of her choice and light scented candles before you start the hair spa. The preparation itself seems like a promising Mother’s Day gift idea. Isn’t it?
Step 2: Start with hair oiling
Conclude your search for Mother’s Day ideas and begin the celebration in the form of a hair spa at home (just the two of you) with an oil massage. Massaging the locks with oil help nourish them, stimulate blood flow, and enhance blood circulation in the scalp. Wondering what oil to choose for head massage? You can use sesame oil (works on premature greying, excess hair loss), olive oil (soothe dry scalp), or argan oil (excellent for dry, brittle, frizzy hair). Take 1-2 tablespoons of hair oil and gently massage it from root to tip. You can also go for a hot oil massage. All you need to do is heat the oil a little and massage your mom’s scalp and hair to calm and relax her senses.
Step 3: Steam the strands
After applying the hair oil, steam the hair for that spa-like experience. Steaming allows the essential ingredients to penetrate deeper into the hair and absorb all the nutrients. And yes, steaming the hair like a salon is not as difficult as it seems. Simply heat some water in a utensil and dip a towel in it. Wring out the excess water and then wrap the towel around your mom’s head for a few minutes. This will open her scalp’s pores and nourish her hair at the roots.
Step 4: Wash off with a shampoo
Wash her hair with a shampoo that not only cleanses but also protects and maintains the health of her hair. Try choosing your mom’s hair products according to her hair type or hair concern. For instance, if she is suffering from hair breakage and spilt ends, go for an anti-breakage and anti-split ends shampoo that comes with active fruit ingredients like lemon peel extract. Smoothly massage the scalp and follicles in a circular motion to take off all the unnecessary elements from her hair. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and help your mom get rid of frizzy hair with ease.
Step 5: Follow it up with conditioner
Add shine to your mom’s hair by applying conditioner. This will improve the look and strength of her locks and offer protection. Again, use a conditioner that helps your mother tackle hair issues. If hair breakage and spilt ends are her biggest archenemies, then a great Mother’s Day gift idea would be giving her an anti-breakage and anti-split ends conditioner. Apply the conditioner to the tips of her hair and evenly distribute the product with your fingers. Then, rinse it off thoroughly.
Step 6: Coat her locks with a hair mask
At this stage, after washing the hair with shampoo and conditioner, you must apply a hair mask. All you need to do is apply the hair mask on wet hair, from the mid to the ends of her hair, and run a wide-toothed comb through it to leave no spot over or under-moisturised. Leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off.
Step 7: Finish off with serum
Complete the hair pamper session by applying a few drops of a strengthening hair serum, from the ends up to the middle of her locks. Use it on damp hair. Applying serum effectively will prevent your mom’s hair from breaking and result in smoother, longer, and shinier hair. Once you are done applying it, run a comb through the hair, and voila, she is all set to flaunt the hair of her dreams.
