Few things are more luxurious than a head spa experience at a top Tokyo salon. But what exactly is a head spa and what does it do? Our writer Rene finds out at Dot+LIM – where hair experts create head spa packages their clients love.
With their exclusive range of products, advanced techniques and salon technology, Dot+LIM is one of the best in the head spa business. Let’s walk through one of their most requested head spa packages, the Sparkling Head Spa + Deep Conditioning Treatment, to see what this fantastic treatment can do for you.
Sparkling Water Head Spa + Deep Conditioning Treatment
Step 1 – Head Massage
The spa experience starts with a head massage using Herb Angel Oil; a rejuvenating, balancing oil which promotes blood flow and youthfulness in the scalp – essential for healthy hair growth. It also includes a shoulder massage for complete relaxation.
Step 2 – Sparkling Water Massage Treatment
While sitting, or rather laying down in an incredibly comfortable, fully reclining seat, the massage therapy continues with a sparkling water spa treatment.
The tiny bubbles in the mineral-rich carbonated water (similar to hot spring water) are able to lift very small particles from the scalp, which leaves it extremely clean and invigorated. The treatment is also said to prevent hair loss and to ease mental stress, among other benefits.
Step 3 – The Deep Steam
On to the Deep Conditioning Treatment part of the package, where salon technology is shown at it’s best. A steam machine with an ultrasonic inducer that vibrates 1,600,000 times a second, creates a cloud of moisture around the hair, making it ultra-soft and shiny.
Step 4 – Custom-made Deep Conditioning Treatment
A deep conditioning treatment is selected from the salon’s specially-formulated products, and is used according to the client’s specific hair needs. It is then carefully pressed into the hair with the stylist’s advanced technique.
The treatment acts as a softening agent and helps protect the hair from daily damage caused by hard water and heating appliances.
Step 5 – Blow-dry and Finish
Hair stylist: Waka
All done! A perfectly styled, glowing mane in just under sixty minutes.
The spa treatment should last through several shampoos, but if clients want to continue the special care program at home, an exclusive range of hair care products – all made in Japan – is available for purchase.
So the next time you find yourself in Tokyo, why not indulge in this amazing head spa treatment at Dot+LIM, and see the results for yourself?
