A Guide To Home Hair Pampering

Indulge your hair (and yourself!) in a little R&R with a home pampering session. Follow these steps for a complete DIY hair care ritual.

1. Set The Scene

A home pampering experience starts with creating the perfect sanctuary. Make sure the bathroom is spotless, dim the lights, play some relaxing music and scatter a few candles around the space. You'll also want to be organised so that everything you need is at your fingertips – gather all your products along with some fresh towels and maybe even a fluffy robe and slippers!

2. Lather Up

Let the pampering begin! Start by rinsing your hair in lukewarm water and then use a shampoo suited to your hair type (ask your stylist for guidance) and double cleanse your hair. Take your time, particularly on the first wash, and concentrate on kneading the scalp for a luxurious head massage. Not only does this feel sensational, but it also stimulates the follicles. Don't forget to rinse out your shampoo thoroughly after each application.

3. Mask Moment

If you're lucky enough to have a bath, hop in for a relaxing soak. Otherwise, pop on your robe and find a quiet space where you can relax. Before you get too comfortable, apply your chosen hair mask. For weakened hair, consider L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Masque or for coloured hair, L'Oréal Professionnel Lumino Contrast Masque may be beneficial. If you're unsure of which mask to use, ask your stylist for guidance. Apply the mask and allow it to sit on the head as per the instructions and while the mask is working its magic, make a conscious effort to close your eyes, breathe deeply or even meditate.

4. Replenishing Oil

Once you've rinsed off your hair mask, take the time to carefully towel dry your hair, or blow dry it on a low heat setting. When the hair is 70% dry take a nourishing hair oil like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Sérum de Force and rub a few drops of between your palms to warm up the product. Then, disperse the oil through your hair by combing it through with your fingers – it should feel luxurious and give your locks a hydration boost.

By now you should be feeling thoroughly rejuvenated – so pour yourself a cup of herbal tea, slip into your robe and enjoy that relaxed mindset as your hair air dries. Bliss!
