Read below for our suggestions on hair spa rituals and products for all types of hair.
First things first - Set the stage for a great home spa experience
Preparing a little time for relaxation can work wonders for our state of mind just as much as for our hair. If you have a bathtub fill it with water. If you prefer the shower, run hot water a few times to warm up the space. You can run the water over some dried herbs such as lavender or eucalyptus to create a relaxing and invigorating scent. Dim the lights or turn them off all together and light a candle. Bring in a book or your favorite magazine, even a glass of wine or maybe a cup of tea. They will come in handy while you wait for the treatments to work their magic. All these little details will help you recreate a relaxing atmosphere and get you in a spa mood.
Step 1 - Pre-Treatment
Cell turnover is a normal process of the skin, but we often forget that our skin extends to our scalps too. To truly benefit from haircare treatments we must start with a clean slate, that is, with removing dead skin cells from the scalp. This will allow all the active ingredients to penetrate into the follicles and work their magic.
Our Extreme Caviar Exfoliating Scrub Scalp Mask is a pre-treatment suitable for all types of hair. It’s formula includes Tahitian mother-of-pearl and coral sand that polish the scalp and also help remove product that has built up on the hair strands. Its action is most potent on the scalp, using a cell detox-booster to detoxify skin cells in depth and a botanical phyto-active 15 complex to help neutralize scalp imbalances. Apply it working from the front to the back, separating the hair in 3 cm/ 1 inch strands and massaging it onto the scalp. Let it act for up to 15 minutes and enjoy its fresh and floral scent, with a hint of spicy warmth.
If hair loss is a concern, try the Black Baccara Pre-Treatment Exfoliator. Its core ingredient is our exclusive Black Baccara Rose Youth Concentrate, acting to defend cells from cycle variations to keep hair growing healthy and prevent premature aging of both the hair follicle and shaft. Apply a third of the vial on dry or damp hair and let it act overnight, before shampooing in the morning. The Pre-Treatment Exfoliator is sold together with the Black Baccara Scalp Concentrate, which will help you continue the hair growth boosting treatment throughout the week.
Step 2 - Cleansing
A good shampoo will remove dirt and excess sebum from your hair without over-drying your scalp. We didn’t stop at good shampoos; we created great ones instead. This means that you’ll not only get the cleansing benefits, but you will also nourish both the hair shaft and the follicles.
For oily hair, rely on the efficient action of the Extreme Caviar Purifying Charcoal Shampoo. The Organic Activated Charcoal efficiently cleans away excess sebum and also acts deep into the follicles to regulate sebum production and detox cells.
To nourish dry hair, with a touch of luxury, go for the Sublime Gold Shampoo. Its ultra-restorative properties are ensured by high concentrations of Keratin Peptide and Organic Argan Oil. 24K Micronized Gold further repairs damaged hair and revitalizes your locks, restoring their health and giving them a vibrant shine.
Apply either shampoo with a gentle massage, making sure to lather well on both hair and scalp. Let them act for up to 2 minutes to reap all the benefits.
Step 3 - Treatment
Our conditioners are formulated to act as micro-treatments, every time you wash your hair. But for your spa experience we suggest you try something a bit more elaborate.
The Black Baccara Bond Rejuvenating Luxe Cure is a potent hair repair treatment that targets damaged areas and epigenetic factors to fill and repair broken bonds and linkages. It’s packed with ultra-concentrated cicabond treatment and fortified with Vegan Keratin and our Multi-bond Filler to repair and re-build the inner structure of the hair fiber. It also contains vitamins, minerals, botanicals and pure 24K Gold that help bring back vitality and shine, while also protecting against oxidative stress and pollution. The result? Silky, smooth, frizz-free locks.
This treatment includes a beaker, to mix the Phase 1 and Phase 2 vials, and a brush to help you apply it. After mixing the content of the two vials, part your hair in 4 sections and use the brush to spread the mix starting at the roots and working your way down to the tips. Then use a comb to ensure the product is spread evenly. Grab that book or magazine while you let the treatment act - around 20 minutes. Rinse well and get ready to enjoy amazing hair!
