We spoke about hair masks in the earlier post and now lets dive into some amazing hair oil treatments, which if made part of your selfcare routine, will make your hair nice and healthy with all the lymphatic drainage you need for a healthy scalp + hair growth. Basically, Adios! to majority of hair care problems without the use of any fancy or chemical or synthetically composed and yet hidden from your eyes with all the smart packaging. So, here we go –
Many of us either hate oiling our hair or find it absolutely useless. In fact, I myself have had an experience with a dermatologist who said that oiling does not help in hair growth. And I was so surprised at that comment that I still remember it so many years later. Because of this incomplete false notion, I stopped oiling for a while and later I realised that’s not the truth.
Now, lets reason it out for you, shall we? to put it simply,
HAIR OIL MASSAGE =
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE OF THE VEINS + MOISTURISATION/NOURISHMENT OF THE SCALP
= HAPPY SCALP = HAIR GROWTH
You get the formula right… Of course our genes and stress various other factors too play a major part. But if you oil your engine well, it is bound to work well. Same way, oiling your hair not only improves and promotes healthy hair texture but also growth. It gives you the inherent shine and strength which is a symbol of healthy happy hair. Therefore, regular oiling and scalp massage regulates blood circulation and promotes hair growth.
You need not have oil in your hair for days together. Nope. That’s not what I am saying. An hour before your head shower or over night if you are really comfortable with it, preferably every week or at least thrice a month, whenever convenient.
I’ve also shared some fantastic DIY homemade hair masks which are fabulous for your hair in supplementation of regular hair oiling. You can check it out here – Say Hi! To Nani’s Hair Care Tips And Bye! To Your Expensive Dermatologist
These are my go-to hair oil recipe for years together,
Recipe No. 1 –
Warm some coconut oil in a small pan. Once it is warm, add 10 to 12 curry leaves and let them crackle. Heat them until you see the curry leaves blackening at the edges. Turn off the heat. Wait until the oil cools a little bit. Gently massage it on your scalp with your fingers and run it through the hair as well. Leave it overnight, and wash it off in the morning with a mild shampoo.
What this oil does is – the curry leaves strengthen the hair thereby aiding in natural hair growth. Some say it also prevents premature greying of hair. Nevertheless, it has shown amazing results for my hair.
Recipe No. 2 –
(My Nani’s signature Ayurvedic hair oil recipe!)
1) Heat the oil in pan
2) Add bhringraj, pathar choor, curry leaves, hibiscus flowers, tulsi, henna leaves and dried neem leaves. Let them infuse the oil.
3) Stop heating the oil until appears brown and let it cool.
4) Strain the oil and store for future use.
5) While using the oil, take a small amount of the oil and mix it with olive oil in 1:1 proportion and heat it to a luke warm temperature.
6) Following which use clean, dry hands and massage the oil, till fully absorbed.
