Hair lamination at home is not a very complicated procedure. In addition, this is a good way to take care of your hair. Women strive to make their hair more beautiful, using paints, hair dryers, curlers, irons for this – in a word, everything that only worsens the condition of the hair. In addition, due to the influence of the environment, the hair loses its healthy appearance and natural shine. To return to a healthy state, you can periodically make firming and nourishing hair masks, or you can replace them with a lamination procedure.
You can do hair lamination in the salon, but laminating hair at home will be much cheaper and take much less time.
What is hair lamination?
Actually, hair lamination is a special hair care technology: a special laminating composition is applied to the hair, which forms a thin protective film. Hair becomes shiny, smooth, looks healthier and more well-groomed. The hairstyle acquires additional volume, the hair is easy to style and keeps its shape well.
Lamination protects the hair from mechanical influences and from the adverse effects of the external environment (especially in cities). This care technology is suitable for all types of hair and contributes to the preservation of color.
How to make hair lamination?
For the first time, it is better to do lamination in the salon – so you better study the sequence of actions and observe all the nuances.
And next time, lamination can be done at home.
To make hair lamination with home remedies, you will need: a special shampoo for deep cleansing, a firming mask, perhaps a tint mask or tint shampoo, and, in fact, a lamination product (which in some cases also contains hair dye).
In addition, you will need a brush and gloves and, possibly, a thermal cap.
Of course, before purchasing lamination products and carrying out procedures, you should carefully study the instructions for the preparations and follow the technology.
We laminate hair – stages
First you need to thoroughly wash your hair with a cleansing shampoo or apply a tint shampoo for half an hour. Then you should apply a strengthening agent with a moisturizing effect to the hair. Next, dry your hair with a towel and only now apply a laminating agent on them (again for half an hour). The hair lamination mask is applied in the same way as hair dye – strand by strand. Now you can put on a thermal cap and warm your head with a hairdryer, but this is not necessary.
Then you can wash off the laminating agent without shampoo and, for example, apply a balm to your hair or apply another mask (optional).
Why laminate hair?
By performing a set of these simple procedures, you will achieve impressive results: your hair will become smooth, shiny, manageable and more voluminous.
Usually the effect of lamination lasts 3-6 weeks (depending on the composition of the product, hair type, frequency of shampooing and the products used for this). The next lamination can be done before the end of this period.
Lamination strengthens hair, so it is good to do it on dyed (including bleached) hair, perm.
Deep cleaning shampoo is used only immediately before lamination.
