• Try a Hot Towel Treatment

    by Lifeboat Admin ,


    Men and women can use hot towels at home on their skin and hair for amazing results. Read on to find out how!


    For Skin


    Men have been enjoying hot towel treatments at barbershops for hundreds of years. They are relaxing and feel great. Hot towel treatments also soften up a man’s beard to ensure they receive a nice close shave. You can create the same experience at home by following the steps below:


    1. Grab a wash cloth, hand towel, or spa towel. It can be any style, colour, or brand. For example, the Excel salon towels at Alluretex.com are the perfect size: 37cm x 75cm.


    2. Many spas like to add essential oils to their towels before steaming them because the scents can be very relaxing. Essential oils are also a fantastic addition to a hot towel treatment. A wide range of essential oils are available online and at health food stores. Popular scents include eucalyptus (great for clearing your sinuses), lavender and jasmine. If you decide to use essential oils, apply a few drops to your towel while it is dry in a thin layer.


    3. There are several ways to heat up your towel. Some people can get hot water from the tap but it may be tough to get just the right temperature. Another option is to boil water on the stove and pour it over your hot towel. The easiest way to get a steaming hot towel is to wet it, wring it out, and stick it in the microwave on a plate for 10-30 seconds, depending on how powerful your device is.


    4. Last step! Place the towel on your face and hold it in place for a few seconds to soften the hair.


    Of course, hot towel treatments aren’t just for men who want a close shave. They are also a terrific way to do an at-home facial for men and women.


    For Hair


    A hot oil treatment can return your hair to its original lustre and shine. It also feels amazing! You don’t have to go to an expensive salon when it is so easy to do at home. Here are the steps you need to follow.


    1. Decide which oil to use. There are numerous oils that work well but one of the most universal is coconut oil. Your hair will look soft and shiny, and it can even help put an end to dandruff.


    2. Apply to your hair from roots to tips. Rub it into your scalp in a circular motion for 3-5 minutes.


    3. Put on a shower cap, tucking all of your hair inside.


    4. Cover the shower cap with a steaming hot bath towel. (See step 3 above for instructions on heating your towel).


    5. When the towel gets cool, you can remove it. However, let the oil soak into your hair under the shower cap for a minimum of 30 minutes up to a maximum of two hours.


    6. Remove the shower cap and rinse hair in cool water. Then shampoo and rinse thoroughly, again in cool water to seal the cuticle. Make sure to remove ALL of the oil or your hair will be greasy.
