Dry hair problem:
The treatment: An avocado hair mask. Thanks to its high fat and protein content, “avocado is very nourishing, just the thing for taming frizz” great for dry hair
What you need: Half of a ripe peeled avocado, one egg and two tablespoons of wheat germ oil. (You can also substitute wheat germ oil for olive or castor oil.)
Making it: In a small bowl, mash the avocado until it’s smooth. Then add the egg and oil and blend well.
Massage the mixture to dry hair, starting from the ends up. Once you’ve applied it all, cover your head with a shower cap or small plastic bag, grab a book and set the timer for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and shampoo out. Note: You can increase the conditioning benefits by wrapping a warm, moist towel around your head while you wait.
Once a week will help get it back on track. If it’s normal to oily, twice a month is recommended.
The main step of hair care involves massaging oil, shampooing and conditioning of the hair. First of all, you have to massage the homemade hot hair oil on your hair and scalp for around ten minutes. Use your fingertips to apply the oil on your scalp. This oil massage will bring back the natural shine of your hair. If you are suffering from hair lost then this treatment can control the problem. It is also good for eliminating dandruff. I personally like using Mega care Vitamin E Oil that I can buy at my local CVS or online. Keep the oil on your hair for 15 minutes and then apply a mild shampoo which is suitable for your hair type. While applying the shampoo, massage your scalp one more time with your fingertips for 5 minutes. Wait for 2-3 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water. Never use hot water on your hair, as it often leads to dry, brittle hair.
Shampooing should be followed by application of a good quality hair conditioner. It is applied for the purpose of softening up the hair. The conditioner should stay on the hair for 2-5 minutes. Then wash it off thoroughly, with plain water first, and then use the residue rinse that you have prepared. This will help to cleanse up all the residues of shampoo and conditioner and also add bounce to your tresses.
Occasionally, give a special treatment to your hair with a hair mask. The recipe of the hair mask has already been mentioned in the previous section of the article. Apply the mask on the hair and scalp in the form of a thin layer. Keep you head covered with a shower cap for the next one hour. Then steam your hair to ensure better absorption of the nutrients into the hair. For this, dip a towel in hot water and wrap it on your head for 15 minutes. Then use the distilled water residue rinse to wash out the hair mask. After the hair spa treatment at home is over, do not use a hair dryer for drying the hair. Rather, allow it to dry naturally in air. Finally, use a wide toothed comb to brush hair. Now, you will be able to notice the difference in your hair condition. You will find that the damaged look of the hair is gone and is replaced by a healthy looking, beautiful hair!
Body wax hair removal. What a pleasant thought. Yes, please pour your hot wax on my hairiest body part & tear it off as fast as you can. Fact is many people visit their local spa and salons for a variety of different body waxes including eyebrow, lip, chin, face, bikini, leg, back, underarms or chest.
Waxing is not a permanent hair removal option but it does remove large amounts of hair at once. Plus, regrowth is markedly slower than shaving. Beauty salons and luxury spas throughout Chicago have licensed estheticians on staff to perform waxing service.

A Thermae bath spa is a luxury spa built around a natural spring water. It beckon a feel back in historical times when kings and queens enjoy themselves in natural spring bath houses as they relaxed and unwind. The concept is simple. On the ground floor is a large freeform pool with a little river and the occasional neck massage jet. Around the pool were a few lounge chair for those who wanted a break from the water can relax. A couple of floors up were the treatment rooms for visitors who wanted to indulge in some pampering as well as experience the therapeutic waters, and the floor above that again housed a uniquely designed wet room containing a waterfall shower area and four aromatherapy steam rooms. The top floor was the wonderful external pool with gorgeous views over the rooftops of Bath and to the countryside beyond.
