You might have come across ice therapies for the face – ice balls are common now, working by improving the blood circulation and toning the skin. Cold water and ice therapies for muscle healing are also not unheard of. But among all this healing while freezing, our hair still experiences the burning trauma of styling tools. Whether it is your straightener, styling brush, a curling iron or a blow dryer, we always pick up burning hot things when it comes to having the perfect hairdo. One day later? Dry and dull hair, and frizz sets in. With cryotherapy for hair, you can possibly bid goodbye to all your hair damage woes!
Have you seen YouTube videos and Instagram hacks where experts ask you to rinse your hair with cold water after every wash? We all know by now that this trick makes our hair shinier by closing the hair cuticles warm water had opened. Cryotherapy works the same way, only, your hair gets smoother than you can imagine! For context, cryotherapy works by freezing tissues, thereby locking and healing them. It has been used for various things, such as removal of skin warts, and even removal of some types of cancer! So there’s no doubt left that this is a healing process.
There are a number of products you can try if you want to give a shot to this freezing hair styling. There are cryotherapy combs that you can use while your hair is still damp, and they will ensure you remain frizz-free till your next wash! Like regular hot flat irons, you can also use cryotherapy plates to straighten your wavy hair. These plates work after you freeze them for three to four hours. But wavy to straight is as far as you can go.
If you have godsend curls, you won’t be able to flatten them out using these freezing devices. But run a cryotherapy comb through your mane, and it will be left 10x smoother!
Like every natural and harmless hack, cryotherapy also takes time to work. The technique preserves moisture in your hair, and locks the cuticles so they can’t dry out. This means you may want to practice it every day. However, if your hair is especially oily, two to three days a week should do the trick.
