I usually experience a bit of scalp flakiness during the change of seasons (or if I’ve been using too many different products).
As we move into colder weather here in Melbourne, my scalp was starting to play up a little bit, so when I had the opportunity to try Aveda’s Pramasana purifying treatment in-salon, I jumped at the chance.
Unsure of exactly what this treatment would entail, I stepped into Rhodes Hair & Spa expecting a standard hair treatment: a hair wash in the basin, a 10 minute treatment and a little scalp massage.
What I didn’t expect was a fully fledged spa experience.
What Happened In My Treatment?
In keeping with Ayurvedic principles that inspire the range, Aveda believes treating the whole person leads to greater balance and well-being, which explains why I left Rhodes Hair & Spa not only with a purified scalp, but feeling incredibly zen for a Monday morning.
Prior to starting the Pramasana treatment, Karly assessed the condition of my scalp using a microscopic camera (something completely foreign to me) – here’s my before and after below. As you can see, this treatment really cleared away a lot of that excess flakiness for a clearer, fresher scalp. Oh, did I mention you can do this treatment yourself at home? Minus the scalp camera, of course.
Step One: Exfoliating Scalp Brush
Karly began my treatment using the Aveda Pramasana Exfoliating Scalp brush (which reminded me of those head scratchers that give you goosebumps). This brush is designed to help loosen build-up and impurities on the scalp in preparation for optimal cleansing.
