The bigger pain is getting rid of them. We all dread going to the salon getting our “ends” trimmed only to find out at the end you paid a scissor-happy stylist to give you a Rihanna bob! Well, how about the newest hair-trimming trend, velaterapia (also called candle burning)?
It’s a Brazillian hair treatment in which small sections of your hair are separated, twisted and then put under a flame. This process causes the damaged parts of the hair to stick out.
They are then trimmed and the rest of the hair is given a deep, conditioning treatment. The burning of the hair opens the follicles and allows the nutrients from the conditioning treatment to get in deep.
