Oiling my hair is one of my weekend rituals and I always do it whenever I spend my day in.  I apply two of my favourite oils, Olive and Coconut oil. I mix 2 tablespoon of each in a small bowl and heat it for around 30 seconds.

I apply the oil on my scalp first using a cotton ball. I part my hair in sections starting from the middle and then going sideways sectioning small sections at a time. Using the cotton ball, soaked in oil, I gently press it on my scalp and then repeat this step all over my head.

Once the scalp is done, I like to take whatever is remaining on my palms and apply it on the ends of my hair. I like to massage my scalp for at least 10 minutes to stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair growth. This feels best when someone else does it for you. I always fall asleep whenever my mum massages my head.

Then, I take a clean towel, wet it in hot water, squeeze out the excess, and wrap it around my hair tilll the towel turns cold. This really helps the oil penetrate into my hair and leaves my hair feeling extremely soft. You can also use a shower cap instead of a wet towel. The shower cap will retain the heat and will almost work in the same way as the towel. I prefer doing it with a towel.

This can be a little tricky to shampoo, so you need to wash your hair at least twice to get rid of all the oil. You can also add Almond oil to the mixture to make it more nourishing and it will also help in getting rid of dandruff. You can add and delete a lot from this and make it suit your hair type. This combination works best for normal to dry hair.

Doing this regularly will seriously help your hair to be healthier, longer, softer and reduce hair fall. Do let me know if you try this out.
