Which is better? Well, actually i was quite reluctant to write this down but since i promise you guys that i want to give all the practical tips (and tricks) and facts about taking care of your hair, so here it is : Home treatmeant can be as good as salon treatment ..why? scroll down for the arguments
Home Treatment VS Salon Treatment
--Economical but optional
--use more frequent (once a week)
--No additional heat or fancy equipment needed
--can be as effective as salon treatment if used frequently
--Expensive but necessary
--once a month or every 6 weeks
--coupled with steaming machine/micromist machine
In the end , home treatment can be as good as salon treatment (yet economical) as long as u use it frequently and the RIGHT WAY
The wrong way : 1) Shampoo 2) Conditioner 3) Hair Mask
The right way : 1) Shampoo (the best shampoo would be the deep cleansing shampoo) 2)Hair Mask 3) Condtioner (optional)
and WHY? because if u use the conditioner before the hair mask, your hair cuticles will be covered with conditioner and the hair mask could not get in the hair shaft.
How to improve the effectiveness of your own home treatment?
1) Use deep cleansing shampoo : It will cleanses all the impurities and leftover from your scalp and hair and it would make it easier for the hair mask to penetrate deep inside the hair shaft.
2)use warm water first when u first use the shampoo and then with cold water when u want to rinse the hair mask later . Cold water will close back ur hair cuticles and the treatment will stay longer in your hair.
3)Leave the hair treatment in your hair for at least 10 minutes and wrap it with cotton towel
so there u have it...if u practice all these tips , i assure u after 4 cycles of home treatment (provided u use the right treatment) u will notice major difference (better) later. have fun trying :))
