    Oiling hair is a common practice in Indian society. All you need to do is pour some oil in the palms of your hand or directly onto your scalp and massage your head gently for 10 to 15 minutes. We oil our hair to maintain moisture, luster, and shine.

    Oiling softens the hair while providing all the necessary vitamins and minerals that are essential for hair growth. There are specific techniques to hair oiling, and different oil types for different hair types that are recommended by experts.

    How To Apply Hair Oil?

    • Apply oil on your scalp and massage with your fingertips using a circular motion.
    • Apply the leftover oil on your palms to the roots of your hair.
    • Cover the hair with a towel or shower cap and leave it overnight.
    • The next day, shampoo your hair. Rinse thoroughly.
    • Apply conditioner as you normally would.

    Oiling hair regularly reduces hygral fatigue or the swelling and drying of hair. Oils protect the follicle from unwanted material by filling the gaps between cuticle cells.

    The deciding factor should be considered with the help of an expert. Every hair type is different. Every hair needs another set of care and time. We do not recommend going over the internet to pick a type of hair oil for yourself as sit may result badly and may have consequences. 

    How often should you oil your hair?

    Ayurveda (Ayurvedic Ingredients That Will Make You Healthy) recommends oiling hair almost every day as part of your daily routine, though this may not be realistic and affordable for everyone. If leaving oil overnight isn’t possible, you can oil your hair an hour before you bathe and wrap your head with a hot towel to achieve the closest results possible.
