  2. I am participating. yay! :D

    How will i indulge in a hair spa at home? All these years my mom and grandmother have taken care of my hair. I still love my grand mother's champi.

    Well, I will celebrate exactly that. Play my grandmother's favorite old music, light some aroma candles, and give my grandmother a much deserved hair spa. Her long tresses might have turned grey, but she is still a beauty. <3

  4. Hey Deeptima, Awesome giveaway :)
    I usually indulge myself in a home spa on weekends. My mum massage my scalp with Dove Elixir Rose and Almond Oil Hair-fall therapy for about 30 mins. For setting the ambience, i light some sandalwood and vanilla flavored candles in dim light. Further, I take a hot towel and wrap it around my hair so that the oil can penetrate inside the roots of the hair. After resting for about an hour I wash my hair with Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost shampoo and conditioner followed by Dove Nourishing Hair Mask and Serum. On alternate weekends, I apply a mask of banana, skimmed curd and honey for bounce.

    This is the secret to my bouncy hair. Hope to win :)

  5. Hair spa at home means.. getting those luscious and silky soft hair with minimum effort..
    I usually indulge myself in homemade hair pack..
    1. either curd + lemon or
    2. Aloe vera massage.. blended with almond oil..
    both works absolutely amazingly and leave me with silky soft hair.. :) :)
    and if i m really short on time I will use a hair butter post hair wash .. :D :D

    I wouldnt mind relaxing while listening to my fav romantic songs or watching a flick.. ;)

    Every Sunday(IN winters) is my spa day.. And really I want a proper environment and time. Spa is useless if you are not feeling relaxed after it.
    1. I just dim lights of the room and spray my favourite room freshner.
    2. Then I sit on a chair and request my grand maa to oil my hairs. She is the best when comes to hair massage, I don't know what magic she has in Her hands <3 I just love it.
    I prefer a mix of olive, coconut oil and few drops of badam rogan in winters. And trust me the results are always magical.
    3. Then I steam my hair with a steamer or for about 10 mins. I usually add few drops of lavender oil in steamer.
    4. Then I relax for 2 hours to let hairs absorb the oil. In the mean time I listen to my favourite songs or read a magazine or cook something delicious.
    4. Then after 2 hours I wash my hairs with anti-dandruff shampoo and warm water. Conditioning, a most important step after it.
    5. Then I apply hair mask.
    Hair mask- 1 egg, 2 spoons of yogurt and honey each.
    Then cover it with a shower cap and let it rest for 1 hour.
    Then I rinse off and flaunt my beautiful, silky and smooth hairs.

  7. Create Spa Look at Home :

    Light candles, use your favorite lighting, turn on your favorite
    music, run your bath and get your beverage.
    Towels – Big, fluffy ones are perfect. To feel extra special on spa
    days, save these just for your spa time.
    Scrubs, bath salts, lotions, pedicure cream, favorite scent

    The entire feel of a nice spa is enough to give the sense of beautiful
    pleasure & joy to get pampered

    Hair spa is usually made up of massage oil, hair mask application,
    shampooing and deep conditioning.The four essentials are: Oil massage,
    shampoo, mask and conditioner.

    * Massage your scalp with olive oil.

    * Dip a towel in warm water and squeeze the excess water out.
    Wrap the towel around the hair.

    * Wash your hair. Now, wash the hair with a mild shampoo.
    Use only cold water as hot water is harmful to the hair roots.

    * Use a conditioner. Rinse it off after half an hour with just
    warm water and no shampoo.

    Lastly, a hair mask:)

    Hair Olive Oil Deep Hair Conditioning Mask:

    Beat two eggs (three for long hair) and add in three tablespoons of
    olive oil. Add your favorite essential oils for fragrance (optional.)
    Apply a liberal amount to hair from root to tip. Wrap hair in warm
    towel and rest for about 30 minutes. After you rinse, you will notice
    how soft, shiny and manageable your hair will be. :)

I want to experience the peace during the course of Spa and just wanna love myself all over again.. want to relax... plus.. the old memories flashing in my mind.. When my grandmother and now my mother... gives me a “maalish” with her strong hands...and yes... the old songs..

  9. Hey dear!!! Thnq soo much for hosting such an amazing giveaway..... :D

    A Hair Spa for me means pampering my hair inorder to bribe it to become how it used to be... I regularly used to straighten my hair and many times I wudn't use a heat protectant as a result of which my hair has become very dry and thin... :'(
    I do a hair spa twice a week....
    Once a week I follow this routine(on Wednesdays):
    First I apply Biotique Bio Bhringraj Hair Oil... It has really worked wonders for my hair. I apply it to my hair by gently massaging it into the scalp so that it gets absorbed easily. I leave it on for about 2 hours.
    After this I wash it off using Matrix biolage hydrating shampoo and then i apply Loreal 3X Fall Repair Hair Conditioner.I leave it on for around 10 mins after which i wash it off.Make sure to apply conditioner only to the roots and not to the scalp....

    Saturday night my Hair Spa process is:
    I first create a hair mask using 2 eggs (white only) and 4 tablespoons olive oil.I mix both the ingredients together and then apply them to my hair.After this I wrap my hair in a hair cap.I leave this mask on for about an hour during which i play my favorite music and relax(After all it is the weekend!! :D ). Then I wash off the mask with slightly warm water (dont use very hot water as this dries the hair).Then I wash my hair with my matrix biolage shampoo and apply the loreal conditioner.I leave the conditioner on for 10 mins then rinse it off with cold water.

    And that is how i do my Hair Spa.... :D

  12. Hey Deeptima, Lovely giveaway...<3

    My spa therapy at home…
    “Just turn your shower on and run it at its hottest temperature for about 20 minutes. While the water is running and the steam is building, take a warm washcloth and spray with your favorite relaxing oil. (Lavender, vanilla or rosemary are all great de-stressing aromas.) When you step into your shower, put the washcloth up to your face and take a deep breath of your soothing, oil-scented steam. It’s a great way to unwind right before bed—and it also helps clear up sinuses.”

  13. Hair spa at home ^_^
    The cuticle (outermost covering) of your hair becomes ragged over the week due to environmental damage, causing hair to feel rough and lose its shine. This needs intensive smoothening over the weekend. Warm half a bowl of coconut or olive oil. Add the juice of half a lemon if you have very oily hair or a lot of product build-up (residue of hair spray, mousse, gel, etc). Massage well into roots, comb out and wrap a hot towel around your head for 10 minutes.

    Remove towel and apply a hair pack. Henna powder mixed with black tea and a teaspoon of ground soaked fenugreek (methi) seeds is great for shine and volume and works for all hair types. To add strength to brittle hair, use egg white with fenugreek paste instead. The egg protein repairs the damaged hair shaft.

    Shampoo after 20 minutes. You could rinse your hair with half a glass of beer after the shampoo -- it adds instant shine and bounce to your tresses.

  16. My best way to do a spa at home is “dim the lights and burn a candle or some aroma sticks, as I have dry hair I always choose Dove lavender oil to massage my hair and after indulging in a soothing spa experience at the comfort of my home, I wash my hair with a mild shampoo that suits my hair type and hair condition and get gorgeous and healthy looking hair". :) :tup :angel :party

  17. Hostel hair spa in Rs. 20

    What do you need?

    A comb (free, because you obviously own one!)
    Hair oil (free if I win the Dove hamper :P)
    A napkin (free)
    Some warm water (free)
    And a sachet of dove shampoo and conditioner (Rs. 5)
    Egg (Rs. 5)
    Yoghurt (Rs. 5 in my hostel)

    How do you go about it?

    First, massage Dove Elixir on your head gently and let your blood circulate well. Next, take some warm water and dip a napkin in it. Place the napkin on your head for about 5 minutes and repeat this step a few times.

    Relax for an hour or so till your hair has absorbed the oil

    Apply a hair mask of egg whites (beaten) and half a bowl of yoghurt mixed well for about 30 minutes and then use Dove shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair.

    Dove Elixir acts as a great substitute for hair serum or leave on conditioner, too. Just rub a few drops on your palm and run it down your hair.

    Let your crowning glory dry naturally in the sun. (Hair dryers are a complete No!)

    And since my hostel has a mini lake within the campus, I tend to steal a chair from the classroom and sit in the sun as I read my book!

  18. Great giveaway Dee...
    Hair Spa at home...well ..on some lucky weekends, I like to give myself a massage with coconut oil in which curry leaves have been boiled. The oil should be a little warm and with a small cotton swab, I first apply it to the roots of my hair and after which I apply some on the hair ends...After massaging for about 10 mins, I wrap my head in a hot towel, and keep it on for 5 mins. Then wash off with my favorite shampoo, and apply a deep conditioning hair mask. Then on towel dried hair, I apply a bit of heat protecting and smoothening serum and blow dry for shiny and super soft hair...It takes some time, but the end result is wonderful try sometime ...
