A home sauna can be the perfect moisturizing treatment for our hair. It will make them softer and more manageable. Many people use a home sauna for their hair at home so that they can enjoy a hairstyle like straight from the hair salon. The treatment is easy to do and gives great results.
How do I create a hair sauna?
To make a hair sauna, all you need is a bowl of hot water and your favorite hair mask. The hair is moisturized and nourished by the steam. Due to the heat and moisture, the hair becomes deeply moisturized and better nourished. This is because the higher temperature opens the hair’s cuticles, which prepares it to absorb the nutrients. This is a suitable treatment especially for frizzy and difficult to manage hair. It may be suitable especially for dry hair. The same treatment is done in hair salons but can also be done at home.
All you have to do is wash your head thoroughly, preferably twice, so that your hair is cleansed of excessive sebum and other impurities such as exfoliated skin. Then apply the mask to the washed and slightly damp hair and comb it through your hair with a wide-toothed comb. If you have long hair, you may want to tie it up with a soft rubber band. Pour hot and steaming water into a large, wide bowl. Hold your hair wrapped in foil and a towel over it. The steaming should last for about 20 minutes. After this time, rinse off the mask using alternately hot and cool water. This way the hair cuticles will be closed and our hair will be much smoother and shinier. There is no need to use conditioners after rinsing your hair. The hair is dried as usual, but a cooler stream of air is recommended.
Why is a Hair Sauna a Good Option?
The purpose of the sauna is to intensify the effect of the nutrients contained in the mask. It is important to know that the sauna absorbs into the hair ingredients that should not be in them, including silicones and parabens. For the hair sauna should choose masks that will be natural for us, without preservatives and other harmful substances, such as fragrance.
What masks to choose for the hair sauna?
For the hair sauna works well, among others homemade masks, such as egg mask, made from one egg yolk, a tablespoon of castor oil and the juice of half a lemon. Shea butter and coconut oil will also work well for hair sauna. Coconut oil in particular is strongly recommended for frizzy and dry hair. When applying it to your hair, focus primarily on the ends so that they do not split
A slightly more time-consuming but extremely effective hair mask is one made from flaxseed. Boil the flaxseed to a gel consistency. After straining it, add half a crushed avocado and two tablespoons of oil, such as sweet almond or avocado oil. You can also add a dash of lemon juice. This mask should be washed off with lukewarm water only
Hops also has a great effect on hair. Before making a beer mask, the beverage should be boiled to reduce the amount of water and increase the amount of hops. Thus reduced and devoid of alcohol beer cools and add to it a few tablespoons of oil and lemon juice. Apply the mixture to the hair and comb it. You can keep the soaked hairstyle in a foil over steam. The hops will also increase hair growth and make it shinier and more manageable.
