A good hair treatment can give you shiny, bouncy tresses, and the one that influencer Rei Germar and hairstylist to the stars Lourd Ramos swear by is a hair detox. In case you haven’t heard of it before, read on to know what a hair detox is all about and if it’s right for you:

What is a hair detox?

As the name suggests, a hair detox is a treatment that gives your hair and scalp a deeper clean. It helps remove dirt, excess oil, and product residue that tend to build up in your tresses over time, which shampooing alone might not be able to clean away.

Who Should Do a Hair Detox?

If you’ve been commuting to work since the start of GCQ, your hair can use a detox since it’s getting daily exposure to pollution from the outdoors.

On the other hand, if you’ve been staying home, a hair detox is good for you if you often apply various styling products to your hair. That’s because these products can leave excess oil and gunk behind. If, like Rei, you style your hair a lot, Lourd suggests doing a hair detox two times a week to deep-cleanse your scalp and keep it itch-free.

Can You Do a Hair Detox at Home?

Absolutely! Rei and Lourd detox their hair at home, and here’s how they do it:

Shampoo Your Hair

This marks the start of the detoxifying process. Lourd recommends shampooing twice if your hair is extra oily or your scalp suffers from too much itchiness. He also suggests rinsing with warm water to break down product residue or buildup.

Apply Hair Conditioner

After rinsing, apply conditioner to the mid-section of your hair and gently work your way up to your scalp. Massage the product into your scalp, then wash it off with cool water.

Apply A Serum Conditioner

Lastly, apply a serum conditioner. This will make your hair feel lighter and more nourished afterward. Apply it from your scalp down to the ends of your hair in sections, making sure each section gets enough amount of serum conditioner. Then, wrap your tresses with a warm wet towel or shower cap and let your hair absorb the product for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

Ready to try this pampering hair treatment at home? You’ll need products that work well together so you can get the most out of your detox treatment. These products should work to deeply cleanse your hair by getting rid of impurities and product buildup, so your hair can get the nourishment it needs to feel lighter and healthier.
