Hair Slugging with NatureLab Tokyo

Posted by NatureLab Tokyo on

There’s a 99% chance you’ve heard of hair slugging – which is simply coating your hair with a hydrating product (usually some sort of leave-in hair oil), and pulling your hair up in a bun and letting it soak in the goodness throughout the day or overnight. A bun is amazing for a hair slugging sesh because it can protect your locks throughout the day. The goal? Nourished, shiny and healthy-looking hair.

Keeping the products you’ve lathered your hair with in a slicked back bun for the day, overnight or for just a few hours can provide you with a plethora of benefits. Your hair will feel extremely nourished and you’ll notice less frizz, less breakage, and overall increased shine. 

If you’re new at hair slugging, try implementing it into your hair care routine once a week. After a few weeks, if you’re so inclined – increase to two or three times a week. It all depends on how desperately your hair needs a little hydration boost. 


Interested in hair slugging? Well, we have the perfect product for you!

Our Perfect Smooth Hair Oil is deeply penetrating and formulated without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and gluten – AKA no harmful chemicals and ingredients.. It’s made of Argan, Baobab and Marula Oil which strengthen and moisturize from root to tip for long-lasting, frizz-free management. This multi-tasking mane tamer can be used before a hair-washing day as a hair slugging mask. 


How to Hair Slug:

Pump a few drops of the hair oil into your palm – more than you may normally do, and lather it all over your hair. Grab a comb or brush, we recommend our Bamboo Treatment Comb, and pull your hair back into a bun or ponytail. Then go about your day as normal! When it’s time to rinse the oil out, grab your Shampoo and Conditioner and ensure you thoroughly cleanse your hair. After, apply your normal hair products and watch your hair shine like never before. 

Want to do an overnight hair mask instead? Slather the hair oil all over your hair and pull your hair back into a sock. Secure the sock and hair a ponytail with a hair tie and head to bed! Your hair will soak up the hair oil goodness all night. When you wake up, wash your hair and go about your normal hair routine.
