Ice shampoo: Glendale barber shop offers cooling hair service

Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. -

Here's a way to cool down on hot days like this. This guy isn't making shaved ice to eat. He's preparing for what's called an "ice shampoo."

They do it at Snip Barber Shop in Glendale.

Owner Darryl Brandt first crushes the ice -- then he mixes in shampoo and mint -- and rubs it into customers' hair.

"Absolutely love it. I've asked for testimonials and it's difficult to describe, cause no one has ever had this. If someone threw a bucket of cold water at you, in the shower, that might be close. It's a whole new experience. Some people are coming in 2-3 times a week to recreate it," says Brandt.

He got the idea from Japanese barbers, who offer the service to deal with their hot humid summers.

Snip in Glendale may be the first in North America to offer the ice shampoo.
