  • Before using this oil, you should always heat it at a low temperature.
  • Do not apply it directly on your hair after heating it. You should always check whether the oil is warm and the heat is bearable.
  • Spread the oil from the roots of your scalp until you reach the ends of your hair. Make sure that oil is spread on all the strands of your hair.
  • Gently massage your scalp while applying the oil. Do this for about 10 minutes.

Step 2: Hair Steaming

  • After applying the oil, you have to steam your hair.
  • Hair Steaming[14] is generally done for making the hair follicles and the hair cuticles to get opened.
  • Steaming will also help in adding up moisture content to your hair. This makes your hair to be fresh, clean and healthy all the time.
  • This can help in making the hair spa[15] treatment to be more effective with better results. You can follow any of the above specified steaming methods for your hair.

Step 3: Hair Mask

  • Once the hair steaming process is done, the next step is to apply the hair mask.
  • This is because when steaming is done, the cuticles and the follicles in your scalp will be opened.
  • When you apply the mask after that, the ingredients in the mask can penetrate deep into the scalp. This can make your scalp to gain all the essential nutrients that are required. It also makes your scalp to be healthy and fresh.
  • For this, there are various kinds of homemade masks that are available. All those homemade masks are made of 100% of natural ingredients. You can choose the masks based on your preference and hair types.
  • They will not cause any of the side effects or hair damages.
  • This mask will help in curing the existing hair damages and also protects your hair from further hair damages.
  • Apply the hair mask starting from the roots of your scalp until reaching the ends of your hair.
  • Make sure that your entire hair and all the regions of your scalp are covered with the hair mask.
  • Then you can cover your hair with the help of a shower cap.
  • Allow the mixture to stay on your hair for a few minutes or hours. The time duration varies from one mask to the other. It depends on the type of natural ingredients that are being used in the hair mask.

Step 4: Rinse-Off The Mask

  • Once the mask gets dried, remove the shower cap from your hair.
  • Do not apply shampoo directly after removing the cap.
  • At first, you have to wash your hair with water with lukewarm water. Do not use hot water as it might damage your hair and hair follicles.
  • When you apply a hair mask that contains egg, always wash your hair with cold water. Using warm or hot water can make the egg to get stuck in your hair.
  • Wash the mask completely from your hair using normal water.

Step 5: Shampoo Your Hair

  • After washing your hair completely with normal water, start using shampoo.
  • You should always prefer using mild sulfate free shampoo for washing your hair.
  • Sulfate can strip off all the essential nutrients in your hair and the mask. So, your hair maks will not work when you use a shampoo that contains sulfate.
  • Gently massage your hair with the shampoo for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Then rinse your hair with warm or cold water.

Step 6: Conditioning Your Hair

  • The next step is to condition your hair to prevent dryness.
  • Use a mild sulfate-free conditioner for conditioning your hair.
  • Do not apply the conditioner on your scalp and the roots of your hair.
  • Apply the conditioner from the middle of your hair till the ends.
  • Leave the conditioner on your hair for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Then finally wash your hair with warm or cold water.

Step 7: Hair Drying

  • After washing your hair, allow it to get dry.
  • Take a clean towel and pat your hair with it.
  • Remove the excess water from your hair using the towel.
  • Do not rub your hair or scalp regions while drying your hair. This might cause damage to your hair follicles and can also cause split ends.

  1. The ideal time to get a hair spa done is between 20-30 days. Don’t overdo it.

  2. There is an entirely different process called blowout and smoothening for extreme smoothening of hair. A spa will smoothen the hair but not intensively. There are specific spa for particular treatment. There is one for smoothening too but it will not be as permanent as smoothening or blow out.

  3. A lot of people say that hair should be washed before a hair spa. Is it really too?

  4. Yes, You must wash your hair before going through the treatment. Using products on scalp whose pores are clogged and has a layer a dirt would do no good. Instead clean it up so that the first layer is ready and then go ahead with the spa to start the repairing process.

  5. It is very important to wash your hair before applying any ingredient on your scalp or even on your hair. It helps in cleansing it before the actual treatment begins. If you are doing it at home then wash it in your usual hair wash routine. However, if you are getting it done from a salon, don’t wash it as they do it for you.

  6. Which are some of the best hair spa products that I can buy if i don’t have the time to make my own home made hair spa?

  7. The spa needs a steam. How good is it for the hair. Does it make the hair brittle and easy to break or is it good for the hair? Also does the spa have any negative impact on the scalp?

  8. Absolutely. Hair steaming is not at all harmful for the scalp or the hair. In fact, the heat from the steam hydrates dry hair and the moisture in it encourages blood flow to circulate which promotes hair growth too. The steam also lifts the hair cuticle allowing the products to penetrate deep into the hair shaft.

  9. The steam is absolutely great for your hair as well as the scalp. It softens the scalp and make it easy for the products to seep deep down in the shafts.

  10. A good steam is great for the entire body. It is very relaxing and every one must try it.

  11. Quite. It actually depends on the products you choose. There are specific ingredients tht directly work towards softening the hair and scalp for example avocado and Shea butter or even jojoba oil and coconut oil for that matter.

  12. The ideal products to a perfect spa is:

    1. Oils for massaging.
    2. Shampoo
    3. Hair Mask (Related to the problem)
    4. Conditioner.

    Buy preferably the same fragrance so that it all mix in. Or mix and match the ones that go well together.

  13. The deal to perfect the spa treatment is to select the products that suit the most to your hair for example, volumanising products for someone who is looking for a denser hair or taming products for someone who have frizzy hair.

  14. This totally depends on the kind of hair that you have but here is a list of some of the best hair spas:

    1. L’oreal Detoxifying Clay
    2. L’oreal Professionel Hydrating Concentrate
    3. Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complexe Beautifying Oil Mask
    4. Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Treatment For Dry And Damaged Hair
    5. Schwarzkopf Spa Essence Hydrating Cream Masque

  15. I am the biggest loyal customer of L’oreal and their detoxifying clay is a great spa for someone who is looking to cure all your scalp and hair problems. It contains tea-tree oil that help cleanse your scalp and remove infection or dryness from the scalp. It also helps in rejuvenating the hair from the lowest shaft.

  16. While I understand that L’oreal is the most trusted brands for scalp, hair and skin, I did try to give the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complexe Beautifying Oil Mask. I loved it so much. It treated my hair with a lot of nutrients and improved the quality of both the scalp as well as the hair. It improves the strength of the hair and makes it almost unbreakable. It nourishes the shaft from in depth and also add a beautiful shine to it.

  17. I was looking to buy this one. Can you please tell me if it will work well for dry hair? I want it to be repaired and treated as it breaks a lot now. I want the breakage to stop entirely.

  18. What is the ideal time to perform a hair spa? I don’t want to do an excess of it. How many times should I ideally do it?

  19. I used the strawberry hair mask and my hair weirdly got very dry. What happened? All the ingredients were softening ones I don’t know what exactly went wrong there. What should I do. Can someone please tell me what could have possibly gone wrong?

  20. I had a lot of dandruff problem. My scalp always behaves very weird. It will suddenly get dry and then suddenly become too oily. It is very difficult to handle a hair like this and I always wondered what will help it. I was just randomly scrolling through articles to figure out what would help them in terms of an over all treatment. I saw this and I thought there is no harm in using it once to see if it will be of any help. I opted for the coconut oil and tea tree solution. It was simple and all I had to do was mix both of them and use it on my hair. And I was blown. My dandruff left the scalp almost immediately. My hair felt super nice. But I started getting extremely shocked when the whole dry and oily hair problem was treated. I had a normal scalp now and it looked and felt fabulous. Maybe it was just by fluke but this one worked wonders for me. So use it to rejuvenate your hair and look at it bringing a tremendous change for your hair.

  21. I am a huge fan of avocado for hair. It works wonders for hair. Can someone please tell me how the avocado, olive oil recipe worked? Did it actually cure dandruff for anyone?

  22. Hi Lie, I am a huge fa of avocado myself and I was wondering the same about this particular recipe a week back but I took the leap and tried it on. I have used it twice in a week already and the effect has been nothing but fab. I could see the dandruff gone almost after my first use and it also nourished my hair very well.

  23. Hey Emily, thank you so much for such a prompt reply. Can you please go a little out of your way and help with the kind of hair you have so that I am doubly assured?

  24. Absolutely not a problem. I have hair that is slightly dry and frizzy. Hope it helped.

  25. I am a pure vegetarian and I am not sure how using an egg for my dandruff and shine will be. Also I have oily scalp so is it okay if I use the yolk part in the mask? How bad is the smell and will shampooing it help? Or will the smell stay?

  26. When can I wash my hair after the hair spa. I know there is time written after every spa but what is the ideal time in case I try out my own product or even a market bought product?

  27. Ideally you should keep it for an hour or so only not more than that. Excess natural product when left on the scalp for a very long time can also dry up the scalp or make it excessively oily. Also a pro tip to make your look great, wash your hair after 4-5 days after your hair spa to maintain the shine and health.

  28. Not at all. If you don’t do it very frequently and give time between the first and the next one, your hair will be perfectly fine.Just make sure to opt for ingredients that best suit your hair type. For example and egg yolk for dry hair and egg white for oily. Also if you have colored hair it might change the texture of it but that is rare a case. Other wise it is perfectly fine to use hair spa on your hair.

  29. Not at all. You can use hair spa in moderation whenever you want and it will only help your hair in looking fabulous.

  30. Use it in moderation and it will only benefit your hair. Opt for ingredients that help your hair so that you get results that works wonders for your hair.

  31. I used their honey, coconut oil recipe for dry frizzy hair and I was honestly not hoping for it to work in any way. I have used a lot of natural ingredients but all of them seem to somehow not work on my hair. But this one surprised me from the very first use. I m using it from past 3 years now. It treated my dry and frizzy hair problem but I need to use it after my hair grow every time. So I have sort off made this my daily routine. This way my hair always remain away from dryness and frizz and looks fabulous. If you are someone with extremely frizzy hair which looks just like Monica Geller from FRIENDS when they go to barbados for a vacation, this is your best bet.

  32. I have extremely dry and frizzy hair which does not even tame after applying oil. I have completely given up on looking good as I prefer oiled hair than washing it to make it look even worse than the oiled one. I have tried a lot of remedies but nothing worked. Will this truly work? And how many times is the ideal time to use it in the beginning? Please help.

  33. You can shut your eyes and trust this remedy. It is not even very strong and you can use it thrice in a week if you hair is in a very bad condition. Don’t compromise on having excellent looking hair. Just try it out once and you will not be disappointed. I am sure I had hair that were in a much terrible condition than yours. Use it once and you will not look at any other product.

  34. I used honey on my scalp and it has gone terribly dry. My hair has also started to break. Is there a remedy to stop that? Oils, mask anything would be of great help. Thank you in advance.

  35. I am 29 year old woman and post pregnancy I am facing a lot of hair fall. Is there a hair spa that I can use which won’t trouble my hormones but still work. Doctors are saying it must have happened because of all the medications that I have used during the pregnancy time. I am not sure. They also gave me a lot of supplements to treat it but I honestly don’t want to invest on them which can yet again trigger my hormones and worsen the situation. Is there a natural way to treat it. Please help me.

  36. Love how amazingly this article is written and how there are remedies catering to specific hair problems too. Great work.

  37. Which essential oil among Chamomile, Lavender, Rosemary and cedar wood is good for a hair type that is very oily. I stay clear of using oil on my hair as it is already very oily but not using oil has completely stopped my hair growth as it is not getting any sort of nourishment what so ever. If someone can help me with this, it will be of great help. Also please tell me which is the best oil to mix the essential oil with. I would love to keep extremely greasy and oily skin away from my scalp what so ever. Please help.

  38. Can someone please tell me if I can mix ingredients as in mix spa treatment and not use just one. Is it going to have any adverse effect on my hair or will it be fine?

  39. Not at all. You just have to make sure that you don’t use ingredients that are completely opposite in nature. AS in one ingredient that suits dry hair and the other that goes well for oily hair. This way you will mess the condition of your hair entirely. Understand your hair type and think of ingredients that will gel with your hair type and help with an over all improvement of it. Rest you can alternate between hair spa there will be no issue.

  40. Absolutely. There is no issue in using multiple spa. In fact it is good if you do. When you use the same ingredient over and over again, you hair tends to grow prone to it and will stop benefiting your hair. When you mix ingredients and treatments it will work perfectly every single time. So select the one that best suit your hair type and use is alternating between 2-3 days.

  41. I have tried pretty much all the spa treatment mentioned for the dry and frizzy hair and mark my words, every single one of them works like magic. I use them alternatively so that my hair can get the goodness of all of them and I love the end result. It makes my hair silky smooth and I have been constantly getting compliments for it. Thank you so much Glowpink.

  42. I used the aloe Vera and yoghurt spa and I don’t know why, but since then I have started having a lot of hair fall. I am someone who owns dry and frizzy hair. What must have gone wrong. Someone who has experiences something like this, can you please help me with it. I really want to stop this hair fall. It has started falling even when I softly brush them.

  43. I have a very strong feeling that this is happening because of the shampoo that you are using. While it might have been great when you were using it individually but since you have used this spa, it might not be working well with the shampoo. The aloe Vera also tends to dry certain hair and yoghurt can do the same. The cases are really rare, but sadly yours could be one. So, I would suggest try adding oils to it and then trying it again but if the hair fall continues then stop using this recipe entirely and maybe opt for something else.
