What is a Hair Hydro?

The Très Spa Hair Hydro‘s is one of our most versatile creations. Hair Hydro’s are a light water based hair finishing rinse that can serve more than one purpose. Since they are water based, they will not build up on the hair or scalp so you can leave them in or rinse them out.

She stopped by to pick up her years supply of the Lavender Chamomile Hair Hydro. Her favorite hair de-tangler that she has been using since she was a toddler. She wanted to let me know it was the only one she trusts.
  • As a Cleanser – Some botanical have astringent properties, making them beneficial in cleansing. They don’t have the same oil busting capability of a true soap however. So as a regular cleanser, you would need to fortify your hair care with our organic shampoo or a No Poo treatment. If you feel like you just have to clean your hair everyday (like after a run or workout) then this would be the perfect option. It offers enough to help keep your hair and scalp feeling fresh
  • As a Conditioner – The botanical do offer nourishment specifically beneficial for hair care. But this is a water based product so the coverage is thin. If you are in need of deeper repair or a way to prevent frizz, then you may want to advance to another option.
  • As a De-tangler – The hydro is great for using to moisten the hair prior to combing out. You never want to brush or comb dry hair or hair that is overly wet as it could contribute to serious hair breakage. Not to mention the fact that it’s just downright painful. Spritzing a Hair Hydro can help give you just enough moisture to help you glide a comb or brush through. I use this just about every day for my difficult overly cowlick hair. Works great for children’s hair as well.
  • As a Finishing Rinse – If you are looking to add a bit of freshness to your hair and scalp or to lightly nourish your hair after a cleansing routine, then the Hair Hydro is the perfect solution.
  • As a Styling Aid – Our Hair Hydro’s can also be used prior to styling your hair to give your hair and scalp a little extra support. Styling can cause damage to your hair and scalp so you will want to offer as much restorative support you can.

Très Spa Hair Hydro’s a pure plant power so they are the perfect eco- friendly travel companion. The bottles can be easily recycled at your curbside or you can choose to participate in our Recycle Program.

Why do we have hair?

About 5 million hair follicles cover the average human body from the time of birth. In fact, there is little surface area that doesn’t have hair of some kind. The souls of our feet, the palms of our hands, lips, belly buttons, scar tissue are all void of hair. Considering how much of it we have, it must serve some kind of purpose right?!

Type & Location Determine Function

There are two types of hair, just two. They may seem varied and different based on the location but there really is on two types. The first is the one that covers our entire body head to toe and that is Vellus hair. It is distinguished by it’s appearance (or lack of). The hair is often barely noticeable since it is short, super thin and so slight in color.

The other type of hair is Terminal hair. This is the hair we see, it’s quite visible. It’s the type of hair on our head, over our eyes as our eye brows, eye lashes, nose hairs, etc. You get the idea. Terminal hair is very visible. Vellus hair may be replaced with Terminal hair as we mature. For example; leg hair, chest hair, face hair all start to change as we reach puberty. Some may be coarse or even curly while other terminals may be straight.

So what is all that hair for?

Turns out hair is more than just a pretty accent for your charming good looks. Those locks, and the rest of your hair, serves a purpose. Some of the functions our hair has are;

  • Thermal protection – In the cold, our hair on our head helps hold the heat in. On the body, when a cold breeze brushes the skin, the hair follicles retract and tense as a way to conserve heat and protect the skin.
  • Natural air-conditioner – When we sweat the hair traps the water and the breeze catches and it cools the water, thereby cooling the skin.
  • Traps dust and particles – Nose hair, eye lashes and eye brows help trap dust and fine particles.
  • Prevents friction – Hair can stop the friction caused by skin to skin action like running or walking.
