Float therapy consists of immersing yourself in a body of water that contains between 350-400kg of Epsom salts, also known as Magnesium Sulphate. Although this is a mineral that we all need and most of us are deficient in, it can be quite dehydrating for your hair if you don't look after it. So although floating is in no way bad for your hair, you can follow some simple steps to avoid additional stress on it.
Your hair is like a sponge so make sure you thoroughly wet your hair when you have your first shower before your float in our onsite showers, making it less capable of absorbing the salt water. When you are floating, try to tie your hair up so that the salt water has less contact with your scalp, and majority of your hair.
We stock Nak 'Nourishing' Shampoo and Conditioner (which is Sulphate and Paraben free) in all of our float rooms to ensure that you are leaving your session feeling and smelling great. We chose these because they have added Marine collagen, panthenol (Vitamin B5) and Vitamin E, which assist in repairing hair by improving tensile strength and replenishing moisture. This can increase elasticity and protects colour fading.
You can also use a leave-in treatment in your hair after your session to add some extra nourishment to your ends, like the Repl.ends Leave In Treatment, Structure Complex Bond Enhancer, or as the name suggests, the Ultimate Treatment which contains Argan Oil and Silk Amino Acids. These will give your hair some TLC no matter what condition it's in, so your hair is left feeling protected, nourished, and have less fly-aways.
We also have various Nak and Aromas styling products for men and women at our Beauty and Grooming stations, as well as hair dryers, so you can freshen up before leaving. From Shine Mists, High Volume Spray and Thermal Shields, to Pomades and Styling Clays, we have got you covered.
These products can also be purchased at City Cave so you can treat your hair to some rehydration and quality styling at home. This includes a large array of mens grooming supplies, like Beard Elixir and Shaving cream. Stocks varies between centres.
