Hair Oil is the essential need of our hair, whether you believe it or not. Many people try to avoid hair oil just because it is a messy process. Even I believe that it is messy. But I do it every week at least two times, to make my hair strong from roots.
Our current environment is full of pollutants and harmful gases which take its toll on our hair. As a result, our hair becomes weak and more prone to fall due to this malicious environment.
The best way to keep our hair strong and shiny in such kind of environment is hair oiling. It takes me only 15 minutes on the night when I want to wash my hair next morning. In combination with hair oiling you need to focus on your food too. There are a lot of misconceptions about ways of using oil on our hair. That is why I felt the need to discuss all of the effective ways with you. Let’s get started:-
Apply hair oil on scalp for the growth of hair
If you want to promote hair growth, apply hair oil on your scalp. Some people apply hair oil only on their hair forgetting the scalp. They take oil in their palms, rub it in both palms and then apply oil onto their hair. If you are one of them, I just want to tell you that this method only softens your hair and does not promote any hair growth. The best method to apply oil on hair is to pour some oil in a small bowl. Then make small partitions in your hair and apply hair oil in your hair using fingertips. You can also apply hair oil on your scalp by using a bottle with nozzle.
The method of massaging on hair
People tend to do very rigorous massage on their scalp which makes their hair fall from roots. Massaging should be done with soft hands using only fingertips. Massaging increases blood flow in our scalp making our hair strong from roots. If you want to increase the amount of blood circulation in your scalp then keep your head facing downwards while massaging.
Use only adequate amount
Never put an excess amount of oil in your hair just to make them strong in a couple of days. More amount of oil in your hair means more amount of shampoo is required. This strips away natural oil from our hair making them dry, rough and brittle. If you are suffering from excessive hair fall, it will take at least a month to control the problem using hair oil on regular basis.
Steam your hair after applying hair oil
Steaming helps in absorption of hair oil in the scalp. Simple methods to steam your hair is either by using a vaporizer or by wrapping a towel around your head dipped in lukewarm water at least 4-5 times.
Leave the oil in your hair at least overnight
Some people put oil in their hair just half hour before hair wash. Oil should be kept in hair to show its advantageous impact for a minimum of 7-8 hours. Simplest method is to apply oil on your hair and leave it overnight. You can keep oil in your hair for a maximum of 24 hours.
