Easy hacks for proper oiling of hair

Oiling makes the hair shinier as they coat the hair with nourishing oils which seeps into the cuticle and moisturize them.so here are some hacks for the best results of your hair

Decide the number of oils

Who said you could only apply one kind of oil in your hair at a time? There are actually two types of oils: carrier oils (like coconut oil and olive oil) and essential oils (like jasmine and lavender). Some people prefer to use base oil mixed with concentrated essential oils and then apply it to their roots and scalp for an extra boost.

Don’t wash your hair directly after oiling

Avoid washing your hair immediately after oiling. If you do not like to wear oily hair, you can oil it before going to bed. You can wash your hair the next day. For best results let the oil stay for one day on your hair. When you make the oil stay for a longer time it soaks in the scalp better.

 

Choose the right kind of hair oil

It’s extremely necessary for you to choose the right kind of carrier and base oils. Everybody has a different hair type and it’s essential for you to know what kind of oil suits you the best. Only the right kind of hair oil will help in improving the quality of your hair and make it even healthier and gorgeous. Similarly, you will have to choose which essential oil suits you the most.

Heat the oil

Make sure to heat the oil slightly, it should be warm enough to dip your fingers in it comfortably. Using a hot coconut or olive oil will keep your scalp supple and soft. Heat allows the oil to work more effectively by helping your hair and scalp absorb the oils properly as well as to boost circulation in your scalp.

Section your hair into two parts

For a smooth and easy application, it’s advisable for you to divide your hair into parts. Split your hair right down the middle of your scalp and pull it over your shoulders. This method will help make it easier to apply the oil to the shafts of your hair.

Treat the roots and scalp

It’s extremely important for you to massage your scalp properly. Usually, when you apply hair oils yourself, you tend to forget about the areas behind your ears and at the back of your head. Make sure to massage these areas properly in order to achieve best results.

Massage with the fingertips

Never ever make the mistake of pouring the oil directly onto your scalp. This way, you won’t be able to distribute the oil equally and properly across your head. Also, never use your palm to massage the oil into your scalp or ends because it leads to breakage of hair. It’s advisable to use your fingertips and massage your scalp in a circular motion for at least 10 minutes. And please NEVER use your fingernails while massaging your scalp as they will damage your scalp and break your hair from the roots.

Sleep with it

It is best for you to apply your hair oil the night before you have to wash it. It is always better to leave in the oil at least overnight for it to work better. You can even leave it on for a longer period of time, say 24 hours, but not more than that as the oil can attract dirt and make your hair even weaker.

If you want to keep your hair break free, oil it regularly. Oiling hair will also help you relax after a long day. Massaging hair is a popular stress buster.
