Life is a rollercoaster. Work, social obligations and that never-ending to-do list can sometimes consume us completely. Time for ourselves? That dangles somewhere at the bottom of the priority list. But that is about to change today. Because have you ever heard of Selfcare Sunday?
Why Selfcare Sunday?
Actually, we know best: selfcare is not a luxury, but a dire necessity in our busy lives. Staying healthy requires a good balance between performing and relaxing to reduce stress and give our bodies and minds a chance to recover.
And the best way to really prioritise this? That's by scheduling it. Dash through your diary, phone off: Sunday is your day. (Or Wednesday, or Friday if that suits you better, but you get the point.) And what better thing to do on such a Selfcare Sunday than to give your hair a lovely pamper? For a real pampering session, take your time. So do it step by step and with lots of love.
Step 1: Cleansing
The starting point of any hair care routine is a good cleanse. Choose a mild, sulphate-free shampoo that suits your hair type. During Selfcare Sundays, take some extra time to gently massage your scalp while applying the shampoo. This promotes blood circulation and stimulates hair growth. For an invigorating effect on the scalp (menthol and mint), use the Healthy Scalp shampoo that also removes dandruff and soothes an itchy scalp right away.
Step 2: Conditioner
After washing your hair, it's time for conditioner. A good conditioner moisturises and nourishes your hair, leaving it soft and shiny. Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes while you relax with a cup of tea or a good book.
Step 3: Deep conditioning
Every now and then, your hair needs some extra love. Use a hair mask to deeply nourish your locks. Apply the hair mask and enjoy a hot shower or bath. The steam will help the active ingredients penetrate deep into your hair. You can also wrap your hair in a towel to let the active ingredients of the mask do its job.
Step 4: Styling
Now that your hair is clean and cared for, you can get started with styling. Planning to use styling tools? If so, protect your hair first with Salon B Highlight Protector Spray. But do not forget that Selfcare Sunday is also a perfect opportunity to give your hair a break from all that excessive styling with hot tools. So air dry those strands!
Step 5: Relaxation
With wonderfully groomed hair, you can now relax. Lounging on the couch with a book and a cup of tea, a nice yoga session, meditating... whatever works for you to let go of the stress of the past week and unwind. It's your day!
Next week again?
