A firecut is an interesting and truly extraordinary procedure which despite its name does not mean an actual haircut as one might imagine. It rather involves a special treatment without changing either the length or shape of the hair.
The term “Firecut Hair Treatment” has numerous synonyms. In hair salons you may see it also being called VELATERAPIA, VELATERAPIA HAIR TREATMENT, FIRE HAIR TREATMENT. But the essence of the procedure is always the same – giving the hair a healthy look and restoring its structure by using the fire to burn split ends and seal the cuticles.

Very often people get scared not because of the procedure itself, but because of the lack of information about it. That is why we will share all the currently available information, so that you can be informed and make a decision whether about to have a that treatment.
Who Needs to Have a Firecut Hair Treatment?
Firecut is mostly popular among women with long hair. The thing is that hair nourishment starts from the roots and becomes reduced at the tips causing dry and fragile hair with split ends, and a wisp-like look. Firecut Hair Treatment is aimed at fixing these problems.

- Wisp-like hair which was negatively affected by numerous thermal influences, perms, dying etc. in no time transforms into beautiful shining hair.
- The most important thing is that firecut does not only give hair a healthy strong appearance, but it really does treat the hair from inside.
Firecut Hair Treatment is always done according to a special technique, following several steps and using many special solutions which nourish and enrich hair with vitamins.
