Novel hair treatment – using fire

Hairdressers are making use of a new technique for haircutting and applying colour to hair – they burn it. This practise is becoming popular in India and in Russia.

The hair is primarily dampened and then a powder applied. This prevents the scalp from becoming burnt and then fire ensues.

Those hairdressers using this system said the technique singes off weak hairs and singes loose strands.

When it comes to applying colour it is said this technique spreads the colour more smoothly and makes it easier to control.

Similarly, this technique is also being used by coiling the hair in foil and then fire is used instead of steam.
