Laser Hair Removal: The Basics
There is nothing like feeling rejuvenated after successful cancer surgery to give you that extra push in life!So, how do we keep things running smoothly when there is always something new to take care of? By having every procedure runnecked from the top down. That means there will only ever be one group of people who will have their hair removed exactly the way they want it – you! Check out these 5 simple steps to get yourself in shape again:
Start by massaging your head
One of the best things you can do for your hair is to start by massaging it from top to bottom. This will get rid of any knots and build-up that will block your airflow. It will also assist in bringing the oil from your scalp to the surface where it can be blown away before returning to the Skies! Your hair will feel incredibly soft and manageable once again, and you will look and feel great.
Wash and dry your hair
If your hair is already quite a mess, you can wash it and dry it. This will remove any oil and water left by the cancer treatment and help to keep it hydrated. While you should never go more than two days between washes, it is good to avoid washing your hair more than once every two weeks or you will end up with lank, oily waves that will make you look unwashed and unbalanced.
Shave it immediately after showering
Shaving your head is one of the best vice-versa when it comes to getting rid of hair. Shaving your hair is like shampooing it: it helps to make the strands easier to remove. It also keeps your scalp clean, and the resulting warmth from your skin makes it ideal for styling. Shaving your hair also helps to prevent your scalp from drying out, so it stays moisturized for longer too.
Use a hot, dry towel to exfoliate your skin
When your skin is already getting a workout from being washed, dried and shaven, it’s no wonder that it is extra dry. So, try to get it out of the way as soon as possible. You should be able to do this within 15 minutes after your shower. If not, you can try using a warm, moistened towel or a soft manual scrub. Wash your hair first, and then your skin. Do not scrub hard or you will damage your skin more.
Avoid oily products while hair is still damp
When your hair is wet, it is easy to hold too much oil, making it harder to remove. It is also very likely that your scalp will be too wet, which will further lead to more oil build-up. It is advised to oil-free or air dry your hair, letting it air dry fully before moving on to the next step.
Don’t forget to exfoliate before bed
Exfoliating your scalp is one of the best ways to get rid of build-up on your hair. It breaks down any minerals and build-up on the scalp and makes your hair free of dead cells. It also helps to prevent your scalp from getting too dry.
When it comes to getting your hair removed, you’d be surprised how many procedures are successful. The numbers speak for themselves: people who have their hair removed are usually in better health, have less breakage, and can enjoy longer hair lifestyles. That said, there is always something new to take care of, so follow these steps and your hair will be there for you! Start by massaging your head, followed by washing and drying your hair, before wearing a towel around your head while going through your routine. Remember to have fun with it, and don’t be shy about coming to the salon for a consultation if you have questions or concerns. You can find great deals on hair removal services often.
