Similar to facials, your hair sometimes needs a little TLC; that’s why going to the salon and getting a hair treatment once in a while will do wonders to your mane. However, we’ve all been there where deciding gets a little daunting and we aren’t sure of which treatment is right for us. There are a plethora of types that focus on treating different aspects. Therefore, Beauty Insider is making a guide on different types of hair treatments to get at your next visit to the salon.

Types Of Hair Treatments To Get At The Salon

1. Scalp treatment

If you have a dry, itchy scalp, an in-salon scalp treatment may be a helpful service that not only feels great but also helps to normalise scalp oil production and enhance hair development. If you want healthy hair, you need a healthy scalp. Therefore, because of the benefits of enhanced scalp skin, a scalp facial is becoming increasingly popular in Japan.

2. Moisture treatment

With a moisture protein treatment, you can revive dry and dehydrated tresses. An excellent moisture treatment, such as the creme de la creme deep conditioning treatment, may solve typical hair problems including loss of shine and split ends. Moreover, the Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 is a popular restorative treatment that is rubbed into the hair during a delightful and soothing session and is one of our favourites.

3. Relax treatment

Relaxing treatments efficiently combat frizz and keep hair smooth for months. Curl reduction, frizz removal, and movement control may all be modified. Additionally, textured hair, whether wavy or curly, benefits from relaxing treatments. You may get the beach waves of your fantasies without the curl’s dry, frizzy side effect.

Although this therapy might persist for months, it must be reapplied with caution. If you use a relaxing treatment too regularly, your hair may become dry, limp, and lifeless.

4. Hair glossing treatment

The shaft of the hair is smoothed and a reflecting sheen is added using a hair glossing treatment. This popular hair enhancement service, which is applied at the shampoo bowl, may be done after a colour treatment or on virgin hair to increase the shine. Additionally, glossing treatments are a quick and easy way to improve the look of your hair. With that, consider a glossing treatment as a hair topcoat, and use one after each hair colouring session.

5. Keratin treatment

For over 10 years, Keratin Complex has been a popular hair smoothing therapy that may provide smooth results for several weeks. Relaxers and keratin treatments, also known as the popular Brazilian Blowout, may turn curly hair into straight hair. To add, the issue is that they only last till your hair grows out, after which you’ll have to return to the salon for another treatment. Therefore, if you have stubbornly curly or frizzy hair and want smooth results without the hassle of using flat irons and styling tools at home, keratin treatments are the way to go.

It’s crucial to understand the differences between the two methods a keratin treatment may be administered to the hair. A basic keratin smoothing treatment penetrates the cortex of your hair, providing up to six months of shine and silky tresses.

6. Detox treatment

Detox hair treatments remove build-up on the hair shaft caused by excessive product use or pollutants like chlorine. A detox treatment enhances the condition of the hair and scalp while also stimulating hair growth by clearing the hair shaft. Thus, creating a blank canvas for your scalp to absorb nutrients better- giving it a literal reset button.

Detox treatments will cleanse and give body to your hair while eliminating the toxins that cause it to seem dull. Detox treatment is for you if you use a lot of styling products or skip shampoo multiple times a week.

7. Hot oil treatment

Hot oil treatments add shine and seal the cuticle, resulting in silky, nourished hair that feels smooth and silky. This professional salon hair treatment, which is often left on the hair for 12-20 minutes before being washed off, may work wonders for dry and damaged hair in no time. Additionally, hot oil treatments are suitable for dry hair types and coloured hair types. Therefore, the length of time you keep them on, how often you apply them, and how often you use them all rely on the health of your hair.

8. Toning treatment

To fix the colour of the hair, toning treatments are utilised. A toning treatment can be given after the original colour session to correct your hair colour, or in-between complete colour services as maintenance if your blonde turned a bit too golden once the foils were removed, or if your red faded as all reds do. A toning treatment is usually administered at the shampoo bowl and kept on the hair for anywhere from 15-20 minutes before being rinsed to perfection.

With that, toning treatments can help you keep your hair colour longer, prevent fading, and fix a variety of colouring mistakes. Because lightened hair will absorb the colour immediately, a professional application is required. Rather than experimenting with boxed colour at home, receive an in-salon toning treatment to avoid a hair colour mistake.
