Surely, many of us have probably already gone through different kinds of hair care treatments. From hair masks, conditioners to washing your hair with the CWC method. Now comes the time to try out hair spa. It is nothing else than oiling your hair. One of the best oils to use in order to regenerate your hair and scalp is tamanu oil. If you are curious how to correctly proceed with the treatment and what results you can expect, read the article carefully.
Tamanu oil is broadly known due to its remedial and cosmetic properties. It is especially used in folk medicine and ayurveda. What is more, it is also used in hair, skin, facail and scalp care. Tamanu oil consists of many wonderful components, among which we can find fatty acids responsible for the proper nutrition and hydration of the deeper parts of the skin and internal structures of our hair. Additionally, tamanu oil is also useful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions of the skin, helps to fight with some of dermatological diseases and improves the overall condition of our skin and hair.
How to correctly do your hair spa? The procedure is exactly the same as oiling the hair. Before we proceed to the application of tamanu oil, thoroughly wash the scalp in order to get rid of any sebum, dirt and dead skin cells that were accumulated during the day. Then, gently drain the excess water using a paper towel. It is a good idea to keep the hair moistened in order to distribute the tamanu oil better over your hair. When it comes to the dosage of the oil, two tablespoons are more than enough, however, it should depend on the length and thickness of your hair. Rub it over the entire length and do not forget about the scalp. Slightly more Tamanu oil can be used on the ends of the strands. A great idea is to massage the scalp with your fingertips. This will improve blood circulation, strengthen hair follicles, relax and what is also important, accelerate the absorption of nutrients. After the application, it is advisable to braid your hair or it in a bun on the top of your head. You should put a shower cap and cover it with a towel or even put on a winter hat. This way, the heat created underneath the cap will help to open up pores and thanks to that, all active substances will be able to rapidly penetrate into the skin. After about an hour, wash your hair thoroughly with a gentle shampoo or one that does not contain SLS or SLES. Leave your hair to dry or use a blow-dryer with cold air.
What effects can we expect after oiling the hair with tamanu oil? Thanks to this treatment your hair will become more beautiful and shinier while the scalp will be healthier and soothed. Tamanu oil softens, moisturises, helps combing the hair and creating any hair style you like. What is more, the oil also prevents the ends from splitting, drying and protects your hair from chemical and mechanical damage. It is a great protection from harmful factors from the environment, sunlight, sea salt, chlorinated water and substances contained in products such as detergents and colouring (SLS, ammonia). In addition, tamanu oil regulates the work of the sebaceous glands, eliminates dandruff, prevents oily hair and provides natural pH to the scalp. The product helps to fight certain scalp diseases, such as psoriasis, very dry and irritated skin or severe inflammation.
