3 Quick Hair Spa Treatments

g7mndpp3tys8wnrnjkq1_dscf0623-copia

Today on OiB, I will discuss the three most responsive and quick treatments for hair. I have often received queries from my fans who say that they often don’t have much time to visit salons and spas or that they have to go to many different places and can’t afford to give time for hair. This is why I decided to share the approach I apply, whenever I am in such a situation.

The best way to do this is save time by not going to the salon or spa at all. I have often seen that most of my time is spent looking for my stylist, calling her up, setting an appointment, and then traveling to and from the salon as well. This means that if you spend about 40 minutes on your hair then more than 40 minutes is spent in other ways.

This is why I decided to learn and develop some new skills for quick hair treatments so that I do not need to go to the spa at all. I have developed a few of these quick treatments, but the top 3 of them are given as follows

1. Scalp Massage

There might be many essentials for different hair treatments but this treatment is truly the best of all. This is because it is super easy and works wonders at home too. The hair treatment is started at home while coconut oil or olive oil is also put into it. The next step only requires true head massaging with gentle stroke for just a little amount of time. As a result, the blood circulation is increased and a boost is received by the hair as well.

2. Hair Steaming

This is one of the most important processes that can be used for improving one’s hair. Hair steaming can be obtained after a towel is dipped in warm water and all the extra water is squeezed from it. You can also wrap this towel around your hair so that the oil can reach deep down under into your scalp. This can be done for 5 to 6 minutes so that the maximum effect is reached upon. It leaves hair volumised in a sense too.

3. Hair Washing and Conditioner Treatment

This is the last step of taking quick hair treatments at home. You can shampoo your hair, condition it and wash it thoroughly. One can also apply a paste of beetroot and hibiscus powder on it. Next, the hair mask is also the best way to take care of all nourishment needs. It provides softening and hair texture regulation as well. it provides shine to your hair effectively as well.

If you have any questions regarding any of these 3 quick hair treatments, then you do not need to hesitate at all if you leave your question here in the comments. We shall also be glad to know of any new quick hair treatments of your own that suit you too. Make sure you get your hands working on the comments section for sure!

There are over hundred different constituents in the native tree from Northeast coast of Australia. All these components play a major role in developing properties of this surperbe natural skincare product. The best quality of tea tree oil is that you do not have to dilute it before applying to the skin. It is the safest oil and is suitable for all skin type as is it considered as the concentrated natural oil. But if you have very sensitive skin then I would recommend you to dilute it.

Here you go with some suggestions regarding the uses and benefits of tea tree oil.

 Athletes Foot: It commonly grows in warm, moist areas between toes and the sides and soles of feet. It is very infectious and spreads quickly through locker and shower rooms. Tea tree oil is great for treating a wide range of fungal infections and symptoms, which includes athlete’s foot. To get rid of athlete’s foot, you can use tea tree oil as topical application. It would be effective of you apply 3 or more times a day to the infected area. Tea tree oil is also used in the topical treatment of skin infection such as ringworm.

 Sinus: Put few drops of tea tree oil in a steam bath or vaporizer or you can add 5-10 drops to steaming hot water for an inhalant. You can rub around sinuses. Using this treatment at the onset of symptoms will help in killing germs and bacteria.

 Gum infections: Use a mouthwash of tea tree oil by diluting it in water, it will help remedy and prevent gum disease and plaque. Do not even think about swallowing it. Small amounts are not considered toxic, though it can create some stomach related problems.

Mix a few drops with acne cleanser to boost its effectiveness.
