The first thing that you need to add to your normal hair care routine is an oil massage or a pre-shampooing routine, and this is irrespective of your hair type. You can use coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, etc. to massage your scalp and hair. This will promote blood circulation and also add the much-needed moisture to your hair. Massage your hair with oil and then leave it for at least one hour or overnight before washing it with a gentle shampoo. Your hair will feel soft and look shiny instantly.
Many people believe that if they apply oil to their hair, their hair will become more oily but this is not true. Oil massage helps in improving blood circulation, improves the texture of the hair and forms a protective layer on the hair to prevent any damage. Such people can apply oil to the hair just an hour before shampoo and then rinse it off entirely. This will not only help them add thin coating to their hair but also prevent them from worrying too much about their oily hair.
Dry hair responds well to oil massage and becomes more manageable. People with dry hair can apply oil to their hair and leave it overnight to let it sink in before washing it off with a hair cleanser.
There are plenty of hair oils available in the market that contain different herbs to promote hair growth, reduce hair fall, eliminate dandruff, etc. Iyou can also make your own herbal hair oil at home, to deal with all kinds of hair problems.
