Soft, thick and silky hair is every girl's dream. Unfortunately, this is just a dream for many of us. The lifestyle we lead with a lack of proper nutrition and physical activity definitely takes a toll on our hair. Throwing in frequent episodes of stress and environmental pollution, we are just glad that we still have at least a few strands of hair on our heads. And if there is one thing that can help you improve your hair growth and health, these are regular massage oils. Yes, it doesn't sound like a fancy spa treatment for hair, but it works pretty well if done correctly. Many of us brush our hair from time to time, but are you sure you are doing it the right way? Read this step-by-step guide on how to apply oil to your hair so you can get the most out of it.
Step 1: Choosing an oil
There are two types of oils – career oils and essential oils. While essential oils such as tea tree, cedar and lavender can make your hair shiny and beautiful, they are too concentrated to use without career oil. So, the job of career oil is to dilute the essential oil. But don't confuse career oil as something that is not good for nourishing your hair and scalp. Applying only career oil can also work wonders for your hair. Coconut oil, almond oil and olive oil are some of our favorite career oils.
You can open several vitamin E capsules and mix the oil with your quarry oil. Also, making your own oil at home with ingredients such as neem, amla, henna, tulsi, shoe flowers, bhringraj and onion is quite beneficial for your hair. Do-it-yourself recipes are sometimes better than most over-the-counter hair oils.
Step 2: Preparing your hair for an oil massage
Comb your hair well and make sure that all the nodes are trimmed before you start applying the oil. Now divide your hair from the top of your forehead to the back of your neck in equal parts. Use a small spoon to pour a little oil all over the barrier line and spread it evenly with your fingers. Now clip one side separately so you can apply oil to the scalp on each side one at a time.
Step 3: Apply the oil
Take another tablespoon of oil in your palm and rub your palms together to distribute them evenly. Now, using your fingertips, slowly apply the oil to your scalp in a gentle, circular motion. Once you have finished applying the oil to the entire scalp on one side, repeat the same process for the other side.
Step 4: Massage
After & # 39; make sure the oil has covered every inch of your scalp, use your fingers to massage the scalp carefully. Massage helps stimulate blood flow to your scalp, resulting in better and faster hair growth. Work the oil into your scalp with constant pressure and movement. Remember to cover the area behind your ears and the one near your temples. These are areas we often overlook when applying oil differently. Take only one tablespoon of oil at a time so that you do not pour too much oil on your head. Too much oil can make your oil massage dripping and messy. Also, it will be difficult for you to extract so much oil from your hair during washing.
Step 5: Apply to Hair
After finishing your scalp massage, apply the same oil over the entire length of the hair. You do not have to oil your hair. Always remember that your scalp needs more oil than your strands of hair. Rub the oil between your palms and run it along the hair. Be sure to pay a little extra attention to the tip of the hair, as this is where the strands tend to split. Make sure you apply oil on the tips without dropping them against each other. Rubbing strands of hair against each other is a very common habit among women. This is very dangerous as the rubbing that occurs during this can damage your hair.
Step 6: Leaving it
Comb your hair so that the oil is evenly distributed to every inch of your hair and scalp. Now, bundle your hair in a bun and leave the oil for at least an hour before washing it. You can also hold it overnight and wash your hair the next day. Alternatively, dip a cloth in hot water and wrap your head with it. Leave it on for ten to twenty minutes and wash with a mild shampoo.
A few pointers to keep in mind: Do not leave the oil for more than 24 hours as it will attract dirt and sweat. Also, do not overdo it with shampoo to get rid of oil (shampoo twice with small amounts of product). Have you always oiled your hair this way?
