Soothes scalp GVP Tea Tree Oil Lavender Shampoo is a moisture rich shampoo that hydrates dry hair. Enriched with tea tree oil, lavender and mint. Nourishes dry, thirsty hair, while adding body and shine.

I love this product. I accidentally purchased this product at Sally Beauty Supply, once I was home and realized my error, I figured I would try it anyway since it was on sale. I used it as a clarifying shampoo, and it worked wonderfully!!!! I wet my hair, applied a quarter size amount into my hands and worked it into my hair. A rich lather formed and I felt some “tingle” on my scalp. I repeated the process once more and rinsed with cool water. I then followed with my conditioning treatment and style.

Pro’s:

  • SAME ingredients as the Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo
  • My hair was SQUEAKY clean-removing all product buildup
  • Price: GREAT value ( any 2 generic products for $10), regular price $7.49
  • Serves double duty as a great cleanser for make up brushes!!!!!

Con’s:

  • If you are sensitive to the smell of Tea Tree Oil, Mint, or Lavender-you may find this item offensive. ( After I rinsed the product from my hair, I didn’t notice the smell, but other reviewers complained of the “medicinal smell)
  • If you are “particular” about the ingredients in your shampoo- this one isn’t for you- it contains Sulfates.

Hair Steaming

I had a customer ask me my opinion on hair steamers today. I had never heard of this, nor was I aware that there was such a product called a ” hair steamer”. Needless to say I was very interested to learn more about hair steaming.

Here’s some information on what a steamer does for your hair.It is basically like a Sauna for your scalp and has many benefits for your scalp and hair including

Benefits

Better Circulation in Scalp leading to better hair growth

– Cleanses Scalp, removing dirt and dead skin

– Brings moisture to your Roots and hair shaft

– Leaves your hair soft and smooth

– Great for Dandruff Sufferer’s

– Stops Dryness and hair Breakage

– Makes hair stronger and healthier

– Improves Hair Color Treatments

– Can also act as a Facial Steamer

The reason why a hair steamers are so great for hair treatment is that it will improve circulation with the steam and the heat will then open up your follicles and hair shaft cuticles and this allows moisture as well as your hair treatment product to enter the hair shaft.

The steamer is then set on a cooler setting towards the end of the hair treatment and this then closes the cuticles and hair shaft and locks in all that deep hair treatment product. Giving your great long lasting benefit as well as using natural
h20 to bring moisture to your hair and scalp

How long and often should it be used?

This is a very common question and if very specific to the type of hair treatment you are doing and the level of damage your hair has.

Generally people steam there hair no more than 2 times in a week for about 20 to 30 minutes to get the full benefit from it. Some sessions can go over and hour for more damaged hair.

After your hair steamer treatment you hair will feel a little heavier and full of moisture, during this time handle your hair with care , wait till your hair and scalp have cooled down until styling.

Damaged Hair – Increase Temperature Decrease Steam if possible

Chemicals or Color Treatment – Skip cooling step
