The benefits of CO2 treatments for the hair and scalp – Adding value to hair salon services

One of the latest trends in Japanese hair salons is treating the hair and scalp with carbonated mineral water.

Since bathing in natural mineral springs is a century-old tradition in Japan its health benefits are long-established and have inspired salon owners to integrate these in their salon services. In the UK however the debate about benefits of CO2 treatments has only just started which is why we would like to provide you with a quick overview of their benefits.


What does CO2 do to the hair & scalp?

Water that is treated with CO2 has a strong negative ion charge which allows all positively charged impurities that attach themselves to the hair and scalp to be rinsed away thoroughly. This is a unique benefit that shampoos alone cannot deliver. In addition, carbon dioxide opens up the pores and its neutral pH-value improves blood circulation by stimulating the red blood cells. As a result, the hair and scalp are deeply cleansed, revitalised and the hair’s natural shine is revealed.

How can CO2 improve hair salon services?

Adding CO2 treatments to the portfolio of a hair salon significantly enhances the results of its existing services. Treating the water with CO2 does not replace shampoos or other hair care products but brings the effects of these to another level. Due to its ability of deeply cleansing the hair and scalp CO2 treatments also improve rinsing after chemical hair treatments such as colouring, making this process a faster and more thorough experience.

OnZen Hair carbonated tablets contain a balanced combination of carbonates and bicarbonates bringing the benefits of CO2 treatments to professional hair salons.
