Well, if you want your hair to get back its natural shine and volume, it is time you start pampering them. How? An easy way to do it is by doing the hot towel treatment. 

What Is Hot Towel Treatment?

This hair treatment is quite popular these days, for it is completely natural and benefits your tresses in many ways. It is a simple process where your hair is first conditioned with a combination of oils and then covered with a hot towel which helps steam your hair. 

When this hot towel is used over your hair, the oils penetrate deeply into the scalp, making your hair healthier, softer.

  • Steaming your hair with a hot towel will help you open up the hair follicles. This will make the hair oil reach deeply into the scalp and promote hair growth. 
  • Using the hot towel treatment will help you remove any build up on your scalp. 
  • If you have dry hair, doing this hot towel treatment will help hydrate your scalp and give you softer, smoother hair. 
  • Hot towel treatment helps unclog the pores of the scalp and release the harmful toxins that prevent hair growth and lead to other hair issues like hair fall, dandruff among others. 
  • This treatment is a must for women with dry and dull hair because it helps the oil reach the roots which nourish hair deeply and gives you thick, healthy hair. 
  • Vitamin E works as a natural moisturiser for your hair. When mixed with the oils (almond, coconut and castor oil), it works even better. The combination strengthens the roots of your hair and keeps hair problems at bay. 
  • The hot towel treatment also helps increase the product absorption by the scalp.
