Velatherapy - Fire Treatment for Split Ends

Velatherapy – Fire Treatment for Split Ends


Velatherapy is a treatment to remove split and dry ends from the hair, which consists of burning the ends of the hair, strand by strand, using the flame of a candle.

This treatment can be carried out every 3 months, but should only be done in the salon by an experienced hairdresser or qualified professional, as it is a treatment that uses fire, which can be dangerous when done otherwise.

How Velatherapy is done

Velotherapy is carried out by the hairdresser as follows:

1st Step: First, with the hair dry, the hairdresser starts by separating different strands of hair, curling them so that the split ends are on the outside, more visible. This process is done throughout the hair.

Step: Then, stretching each strand well, the hairdresser uses a candle to burn the spiky ends, making quick movements with the candle flame along the length of each strand;

Embroidery is a technique used afterwards, which consists of cutting the burnt ends, ensuring a better result and complete elimination of damaged ends.

4th Step: The professional finishes the entire process by unwinding all the hair and applying creams or carrying out other treatments to hydrate and add shine to the strands.
