This soothing treatment— good for men and women— nourishes hair and even helps with headaches.

As I struggled to get off the overcrowded streetcar, I didn’t imagine that I would soon be fully immersed in a unique Head Spa experience at Tac-TiQ. This spacious Japanese salon on Bloor Street boasts friendly staff and a homey atmosphere with an abundance of natural light.

After changing into a bathrobe and a pair of slippers, I relaxed into a reclining chair, hearing the sound of gently crashing waves and dreamy piano music. Takako, one of Tac-TiQ’s Tokyo- trained hairstylists, gave me the full Head Spa experience: it starts with an oil treatment—for cleansing the scalp—followed by shampooing, conditioning and massaging. Before I knew it, the 40-minute treatment had finished. I can’t wait until the next one.

The benefits of oiling

One of the most effective hair treatments involves massaging the head with cleansing oil. It provides extra nourishment for the scalp and it gets rid of dry skin to prevent dandruff.
