THE OIL DETOX HAIR CEREMONY
This is one of our signature hair ceremonies. It stimulates health and vitality while adding mindful self-care to your morning. This practice gently and effectively cleanses buildup from the scalp and replenishes hair with nourishment.
Step 1: Oil
Take a deep breath to become connected and centered while being present with the innereflection inscribed on the Harmonic Healing Oil: “I am nourished with the healing power of self-love.”
Section damp hair, emulsify one to two pumps of oil in your hands, and apply from roots to ends.
Add more oil as needed to coat each strand. As you massage the oil into the hair, you will feel cuticles softening and surface buildup dissipating.
Step 2: Massage
Beginning at the hairline, place your fingertips firmly on the scalp and massage in small circular motions with medium pressure. Continue for a slow count of five to stimulate blood flow.
Slide your fingertips back to the crown of the head and repeat. Keeping your thumbs near the crown, move your fingertips to the sides of the head, behind the ears.
Place your pinky fingers near the base of the hairline at the occipital bone and repeat. Firmly place one hand on top of the head while placing the other at the base of the hairline cradling the occipital bone, and repeat.
Place all fingertips at the nape of the neck. Use a sliding motion to move the scalp in an upward direction and repeat.
Conclude by placing your hands in one of the previous positions for a slow count of five.
Step 3: Cleanse
Add warm water to the hair, emulsify one to two pumps of Pure Harmony Hairbath in wet hands, and apply from scalp to ends.
Let it sit for three to five minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Shampoo again (you’ll get more lather this time) and rinse thoroughly.
Step 4: Condition
The final step is conditioning your freshly detoxed hair. Hydrating Hair Masque is a beautiful post-detox treatment if you feel your hair needs moisture and strength. If you have fine to medium hair, or texture that tangles easy, choose Color Radiance Daily Conditioner.
Emulsify a dime- to nickel-sized amount and apply from mid-length to ends. Allow to sit five to 10 minutes before rinsing. Your hair will be renewed and ready for any style!
