Follow along below to get some inspiration on what to give this summer!

Products Everyone Loves to Receive!

Up their hair product game with a haircare gift from Bottega, it’s a great place to shop. We sell a range of products from texturizers to shampoos. You’ll also be excited to know that we only carry the best haircare brands. Shop KMS, Bottle None, K18, Evo, and Goldwell in our salon! 

  1. A Great Shampoo/Conditioner Set

There’s no better gift when it comes to hair care than a great shampoo and conditioner set. While drugstore sets certainly do the job, they can sometimes cause damage to your hair. A high-quality shampoo and conditioner will ensure that your hair and scalp look as healthy as can be. Another benefit is that you’ll prevent excessively dry or oily hair. Certain shampoos and conditioners can also aid in hair growth and prevent the loss of that salon colour. Check out some of our favourites in-store!

  1. Hair Serums

With summer on its way, a good hair serum can help to manage the dry Okanagan weather. The right hair serum will help to smooth hair strands and protect them from heat damage. This is especially important for anyone who loves to spend time outdoors. Our salon’s favourite brands carry a number of awesome serums for every hair type and activity level. Whether they love to sunbathe or hike the tallest mountains, we’ve got a serum for you to gift.  Visit us in-store for recommendations on our most loved serums. 

  1. A Heat Protectant

Are they using heat tools more than they should? Are they using a heat protectant? If you’ve answered yes to one of these questions, a good heat protectant could be a great gift idea! Heat protectants are ideal for anyone who loves their curling wand or flatiron a bit too much.

Give the Gift of Self-Care

  1. Silk Pillowcase

If fancy products aren’t their thing, consider gifting a silk pillowcase. Silk pillowcases are amazing for keeping you cool and dry throughout the night. They’re also great for preventing bedhead and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermatologists and skincare experts recommend sleeping on silk to help maintain healthy skin. Even if these advantages don’t convince you that they need a silk pillowcase, know that they are also incredible for minimizing dust and bacteria. So, if they’re sensitive to common allergens this could be a game-changer for their health!

  1. A New Hair Tool

Has their hairdryer seen better days? Are they still using the same flatiron from the 80s? If so, this might be a good time to gift an upgrade. There are so many heat tools on the market that you might be overwhelmed trying to choose one. So, let’s give a quick rundown of what makes a good heat tool. First off, for wands and flat irons, anything made with ceramic or titanium is ideal. Secondly, having a temperature setting is life-changing for preventing heat damage and customization. Thirdly, search for something with a good warranty or return policy in case something breaks. 

  1. A Salon Experience

If none of these haircare gifts suit their style, consider giving the gift of a day at the salon. This is a great way to give them the gift of self-care. If they’re not into getting their hair done, BOTTEGA has a wide range of other services to choose from. For example, lash and brow tints, waxing, and laminations. Check out all the haircare services that we offer on our website and determine which service they will love most!

The holidays are quickly approaching and for the month of November, we’d like to focus on haircare as a form of self-care. Currently, we live in a world where overdoing it is the norm. And, during the holiday season, everyone tends to overextend themselves a little bit more than usual. This is a recipe for exhaustion. Self-care isn’t so much about wasting hours of your day in a bath or spending hundreds of dollars on going to the spa. Instead, it is about making healthier, mindful choices and nurturing good habits. 

For the average person, free time is minimal. And, it comes as no surprise that self-care is probably not on the top of your to-do list during these precious moments. However, taking 5-10-minutes each day can help improve your stress levels and change your mood for the better. There are many ways that you can incorporate self-care into your daily/weekly routine. In this article, we will be talking about hair care as a form of self-care. Continue reading below to learn more about how hair care can be used as a form of self-care!

How is Haircare in West Kelowna Self-care?

Hair is a large part of people’s confidence – no matter what gender they identify as. For centuries, hair has been a primary way that humans express their personalities. According to an article by Healthline, our hair has a direct impact on our mental well-being. It is thought that bad hair can impact our mood because of the way it changes how we perceive ourselves. If this sounds like something you can relate to, it might be worth it to invest in haircare. This does not mean spraying in dry shampoo as you fly out of the door. 

Haircare means spending some time each day or week to breathe some life back into your hair. This may mean investing in a few new products or incorporating ones you already have into your routine. It could also mean finding a home remedy for your hair’s biggest problems (ie: breakage, dryness, frizz). Or, simply finding products that amplify your hair’s natural beauty. Whatever it may be, haircare is a crucial part of self-care. 

Ways to Incorporate Haircare into your Routine.

There are so many ways that you can turn haircare into a form of self-care. One of the best ways you can do so is by giving yourself a good scalp massage. A scalp massage is a great way to release tension, boost blood circulation to the face/head, and promote hair growth. Moreover, as a bonus, it feels amazing! Grab your favourite shampoo and massage it into your scalp or use a scalp massage brush for added benefits. This simple task can be done on your hair-wash days and takes only a few minutes to complete – Sounds worth it to us

Another way that you can do haircare, is by investing in some essential oils. Oils are key to hair health and appearance. And, they smell amazing! Choose an oil that will best benefit your hair and massage it into your scalp and the ends of your hair. It is best to use warm oil for this process. However, make sure you test the temperature of your oil before applying it to your scalp because your scalp is more sensitive to temperature than other parts of your body. 

Finally, if products and massages aren’t really your thing, consider getting a haircut once a month. Or, waking up a few minutes earlier to ensure that you can style your hair exactly how you want it. After all, the way your hair looks is the most important to your confidence.
