Is your winter hair giving you a tough time? Are you ready to throw in the towel and admit defeat? Not so fast! The latest to hit the beauty market is something called hair botox, and this treatment might just – as the name suggests – rejuvenate your strands. Sound good?
What is Hair Botox?
We all know about botox as a beauty treatment for our skin and lips, but not many have heard about botox for our hair. So an explanation is needed. Hair botox is a treatment that claims to help eliminate frizz as it smooths and reverses time in the life cycle of your hair. Hair botox is considered being an anti-aging treatment (hence the catchy name) but unlike botox that we put in our faces (also known as Botulinum Toxin), it does not contain any chemicals. It can rather be seen as a deep conditioning treatment that helps restore and reconstruct your hair. The treatment is using key ingredients such as proteins, amino acids, vitamins, and lipids. So if your hair feels frizzy due to the harsh weather outside, hair botox can help you rebuild it. It can restore your hair fibers, leaving your hair feeling silky, shiny and more youthful-looking.
What About the Side Effects?
Since hair botox is free from harsh chemicals and considered to be more of a deep conditioning treatment, it is quite unlikely that you end up with undesirable side effects. Hair botox is a treatment that helps to repair your damaged hair but like everything else, moderation is key.
The treatment is suitable for all hair types, but if you suffer from dry, frizzy or dull locks, it is more likely that you will reap the benefits. Hair botox is also recommended if you have over-processed or damaged hair and want to restore it to its former glory.
How Does It Work?
When getting to the salon your hair will be washed with a clarifying shampoo to remove any residue in your hair. The wash will also help to open your hair cuticles. Afterwards, the treatment will be applied and left on your hair for about 45 minutes before being washed off. The hair is then blow dried and usually sealed with straighteners.
The treatment usually last between 2-4 months if you treat it right. Treating it right means, for example, using a sulphate-free shampoo to help maintain the benefits of the hair botox.
If you do not have any hair salon near you that has picked up on this trend yet, you can always turn to good old Google to find winter hair remedies that you can make at home.
Whether you do a hair botox or some other conditioning treatment, we always recommend also taking a natural supplement to make sure your body – and hair – is getting all the nutrition it needs. Natural supplements, being one of the fastest growing industries, are appreciated by more and more people every day. And as the name suggests, they are made of only natural ingredients. The best supplements contain plant-derived ingredients that work synergistically to aid your natural hair growth without chemicals or dyes.
