6. Ensures dandruff-free hair

How to get dandruff-free hair? This is one question we often end up asking ourselves (or rather the internet). For those of us who have to deal with the dandruff problem, we know how embarrassing it is and we would give anything just to have dandruff-free hair.

This is when hair spa comes to our rescue. Hair spa treatment is the perfect solution to get dandruff-free hair. It helps in healthy hair growth and helps regain its lost lustre. However, the number of sessions required for this treatment depend on the extent of dryness in your hair. Also, hair spa should be part of your regular hair care routine. So, even when you get dandruff-free hair, it’s important that you don’t stop getting a hair spa. If you don’t feel like stepping out and going to a beauty parlour near you, then you can always book an appointment for hair spa at home.

7. Combats dull and damaged hair

Dry and damaged hair are a sign of unhealthy hair. Dull, frizzy and damaged hair can be repaired by spa treatments as the process includes oiling of hair that makes hair more shiny and smooth. Oiling and head massage also help reduce roughness and split ends.


Disadvantages or side-effects of hair spa

1. Impact on coloured hair

Hair spa may cause your hair colour to fade away. One way you can mitigate this is by asking your hair spa professional to use oils, shampoos and conditioners that work well on coloured hair.

2. A Regular Exercise

One thing we all hate is following a routine. So, one disadvantage of hair spa, if you really want to call it that, is that you have to get it done at regular intervals. Why you ask? Simple, the more you oil and massage them, the better they feel and so do you?

This is one routine that does not hurt. After all, getting your hair oiled and massaged is an indulgence, not a punishment, and therefore not a routine humdrum task you need to avoid!

Myths Associated with Hair Spa

1. Expensive affair

Contrary to popular belief, hair spa is not expensive! The cost of a hair spa treatment depends on the length of your hair. Usually, hair spa costs start at Rs 500 depending on where you are getting it done and the length of your hair.
