What Is A Hair Spa Treatment?

And Why You Need One Stat!

Not just for the sake of a good-hair-day, a salon hair spa treatment can really help to restore the accumulation of all the vital oils needed for optimum hair growth. The outcome? Healthier hair, and a reduction in the day-to-day hair issues you’ve been dealing with for what feels like forever.

 

 


Deep Conditioning

Providing your hair and scalp with a thorough massage, heat, and wash, think of your hair spa treatment as your facial equivalent for your scalp and hair roots. By opening up the pores on your scalp, a salon-grade heat machine also allows nutrients to be absorbed faster and better by the hair roots.

Strengthening of Hair Roots 

You want your hair roots to provide a strong foundation. Weak roots can mean dull, malnourished locks. A hair spa treatment is your ‘moisturiser’ for your hair roots and follicles, if you will – providing the roots and scalp with nourishment and the hair follicles with strength.

Removing of Impurities and Repairing of Damaged Hair

By eliminating the inevitable dirt, pollutants and contaminants that land up in our locks, your hair growth will be stimulated with a hair spa treatment. Your hair will be all the more shiny, stronger too…we’re talking that oomph-factor. Dandruff-prone, or feel like you’re shedding more than usual? A hair spa treatment can sort out your tress stress, long-term.

Balancing Oil Secretions

If your hair tends to be on the oily or excessively oily side, a hair spa treatment might be just what the doctor/hairdresser ordered. Excess oil secretion is a recipe for clogged pores in the scalp, which means more dirt and debris getting stuck in the hair, only worsening your hair’s current situation, be it too-oily hair or increasing hair fall.

Restoring Vital Oils

The oils that your hair actually needs to return to its shiny, not-dry, frizz-free former self will be applied to each and every strand in a hair spa treatment, from the root down.

Improving Blood Circulation

The head massage included in your hair spa treatment isn’t just for indulgence/pampering purposes. It also helps to improve your scalp’s blood circulation – which means more oxygen and hair-loving nutrients to your hair follicles to get the blood moving and your scalp stimulated – a recipe for hair growth.

Is it Safe to Treat My Hair Whilst Pregnant or Breastfeeding?

pregnancySo you’ve just found out you’re pregnant…congratulations!

Along with that pregnancy glow that some (we said some!) expecting mums are blessed with, pregnancy can also work wonders on your hair, with the hormone changes giving it a new-found softness and volume – something you may have already seen in expecting friends, or now, in your own locks.

But sigh, pregnancy can also have the opposite effect on your locks, with some expecting mums suddenly finding themselves with uncharacteristically dry, frizzy hair (keep reading…we can fix that!) and unbeknownst to many, the majority of mums experience extensive hair loss approximately 3 months after childbirth – although we can’t change that, we can certainly work with you to manage your style during this time.

What’s most important though, is the health of you and your bub-to-be, and now as an expecting mum, you may be finding yourself erring on the side of caution regarding everything from the food to eat through to your skincare and hair products.

Suddenly wondering whether hair treatments – colour included – are safe during pregnancy?

Here’s what you need to know.

 

What’s Really In Your Hair Treatments?

If you rely on a salon to get your hair coloured, straightened, curled, bleached, relaxed or permed, it’s a challenge finding salon treatment products not loaded with chemicals – ones that sound like they should be in cleaning products – like ammonia, sodium hydroxide and guanidine hydroxide…say what?!

 

Using Hair Colouring While You’re Pregnant

Research on the impact of hair colouring on a pregnancy is lacking and so no hard facts have been established – but as an extra precaution, some women do choose to delay colouring their hair until after the first trimester – after which the risk of harming the developing foetus is much lower.

Thanks to 100% of our hair colours being free from chemicals like ammonia and PPD, this isn’t something you’ll have to worry about at Chilli Couture. You can also opt for off-scalp colours, such as highlights or balayage as an extra precaution.

We also have a range of completely natural colour shaded treatments that are actually classed a food – they are so natural, you can eat them! While these colour treatments don’t cover grey or lighten hair, they are a very safe option for those who want to bypass salon colour completely.

 

Using Hair Colouring While You’re Breastfeeding

Seeing that only a minimal amount of the components in hair colours or bleaches are absorbed by the body through the skin, the chances of these passing through your breast milk are slim. However, if you are still worried, at Chilli Couture we can provide your locks with organic hair colour, free from chemicals found in typical hair dyes.

 

Benefits of Using Chemical Free Hair Colour

Use non-abrasive organic and chemical free hair colours and your hair will thank you – before, during and after pregnancy! At Chilli Couture we specialise in these, so you can be assured your hair colour will look fabulous  – we also know how to adjust your treatment according to the changes pregnancy has made to your hair to keep it or get it back to tip-top shape.
