Oiling Your Hair

A long time tradition that works wonders

Hair is associated with strength and beauty in some cultures where a woman’s hair is her crowning glory. In today's world , I have never met a woman who did  not have some concerns about their hair, whether its the length,dryness, thining, color etc, they are all in search for a solution to their hair drama!
So what is the secret to beautiful hair? The age old tradition of oiling.Before there was all these  hair products, anti frizz serums loaded with silicone, oiling your hair and scalp was the only secret to beautiful healthy locks and did wonders for the hair. With many people the thought of applying oil to their hair will make them cringe, because they associate the application of oil with ‘being greasy.’ Nothing could be more untrue. Hair treatments using oil provide deep conditioning and help cleanse micro dust particles that cause dandruff, irritation, infections and even certain types of alopecia or hair loss. Also, applying oil to the scalp promotes relaxation, a process which is important for thick, healthy hair since it improves scalp circulation.

What Oils are Best For Your Hair?

 Moringa oil  high in antioxidants, it also contains antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties that help with scalp conditions and promotes healthy hair growth.
 Coconut oil  is a great nutrition for hair. It helps in promoting  healthy and frizz free hair and acts as an excellent conditioner that aids in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair.
Argan oil   properties effectively repairs damaged hair – whether from chemicals or the natural elements, it can increase hair growth, solving problems with balding. There are many varieties of these oils so make sure to identify the pure organic products or buy a blend with all the oils to save money and having less products on your shelf.
 Amla oil is used to maintain natural hair color and  prevent premature graying.

How to Condition Your Hair with Oil

The process is not too difficult. Massage a small amount of  oil into your scalp, Comb out to the ends of the hair. You can apply  a hot towel to help the oil penetrate into your scalp and individual hair shafts. Leave the oil in for at least an hour or up to overnight, but make sure you cover your pillow with a towel if you plan on going to bed with it. Wash your hair out,with an organic shampoo that will cleanse but not strip your hair of all the goodness. You will be amazed at the look and feel of your beautifully conditioned now healthy hair.
