THE PROCESS: The luxurious and very tranquil spa at The Ritz – Carlton Dubai is a breath of fresh air. Mediterranean-inspired, this spa feels so warm and inviting from the moment you set foot into it. After a mini-consultation, your therapist (mine was Vijittra), will lead you to the changing area and then to one of the cosy treatment rooms where you lie on a heated bed. The treatment begins with your therapist pressing your head and ears to calm the body entirely sending you into a state of bliss. Warm coconut oil is then gently massaged into your scalp to nourish it and release any tensions you may have. You can also look forward to a very relaxing hand, head, neck and shoulder massage. Finally an exclusive Indonesian hair mask is applied to your hair and 10 minutes in the steam room is recommended.
THE RESULT: Soft, silky and healthy hair.
MAINTENANCE: Apply almond or jojoba oil and leave it in for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it out. A hair mask can also be used.
