There are probably a billion reasons to visit the salon, ranging from personal healthcare to the desire to look one’s best. Maybe you wanted to break the monotony of daily life by getting a flashy streak of green in your hair or perhaps you decided your shoulders needed some relaxation- the reasons are endless and they are all valid. However, it is important to note that the advantages of visiting a salon are not limited to pampering oneself (although that is definitely important too). Scientifically, regular salon visits make you healthier in many ways, and this is explained below.
1. Healthier Hair
Hair spas may seem like pampering sessions to you; in reality, a good conditioning and massage therapy is fantastic for the health of your scalp. Deep conditioning removes particles that may otherwise get deeply lodged in the scalp, while massages open up the blood vessels and help to increase the secretion of oil.
2. Cleaner Nails
Manicures and pedicures are not overrated. You need to keep your nails clean because they can, otherwise, become home to all kinds of dirt, grime, and even worms. These worms can make their way into your body and in this way, they pose an extreme health risk. As they say, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
3. Required Relaxation
Scalp massages during hair spa sessions or face ones during facials, salon visits always include some form of massage. And your body definitely needs it! It not only opens up blood vessels and increases circulation but also relaxes the skin and makes you feel fresh. Massages are wonderful for the body and soul!
4. Cleanliness and Hygiene
Throughout the day, you encounter bucketloads of dirt and lots of pollution. If you live in a metropolitan, there is definitely some construction work happening near your workplace or home right now. Walking by such a site on a daily basis is the easiest way to say goodbye to healthy skin for a long, long time. The dirt and dust in such areas remain suspended in the air and tend to stick to your skin. This dirt will go on to corrode your skin and give you acne, blemishes, and a rough exterior in general. Going to a salon for a face clean-up is one way to remove all this dirt from your skin. In a five-minute rushed shower in the morning, proper cleansing is impossible. In this way, the salon purifies your skin properly and leaves your body fresher. As we know, a clean body is a healthy body.
5. No Discolouration
Many women prefer shaving their body hair rather than getting it waxed. It has, however, been scientifically proven that waxing is more beneficial for the body. Waxing not only weakens the hair follicles, it also cleans up the area and prevents discolouration of the skin. Additionally, the hair grows back slower than when one shaves.
So give up your razors and manicure-at-home kits and visit your nearest salon now! Your body needs the love.
