We Indian women are almost fanatic about beautiful long, dark hair. As a matter of fact, we are known for our magnificent mane across the world. But with polluted air and water, stress, and certain lifestyle choices, this beauty is slowly becoming a thing of the past. More and more women are losing their lush locks; hair fall is such a common complain right now, and so is dull, dry hair.
Since most of us have taken to chemically treating our hair to change colour, style, or texture, it becomes even more important to nourish your scalp and strands. You already know that these treatments can make your hair brittle and your scalp dry and sensitive. That is why it makes all the more sense to give your scalp and hair the goodness of an oil massage at least twice a week.
Goodness it gives
Make oil massage a key part of your hair care ritual. Apply hair oil at least half hour before you shampoo your hair. When you are regular with hair oil it:
- Relieves stress.
- Improves blood circulation to the scalp.
- Stimulates hair follicles, hair growth
- Strengthens hair strands.
- Nourishes scalp and hair.
- Prevents scalp infections.
The oils you can use
- Coconut Oil because it is the ultimate hair conditioner, and restores lost moisture to the scalp. The oil is very effective for controlling dry, frizzy hair. It provides your scalp and strands an all-round nourishment. It has cooling properties and calms sensitised scalp.
- Olive Oil because it strengthens the strands and detoxes the scalp. Since olive oil is rich in vitamin E, it also protects coloured hair from environmental damages and soothes dry, irritated scalp. It also forms a protective barrier on the strands which prevents breakage and improves hair elasticity.
- Argan oil because it is rich in omega3 fatty acids, and vitamin E that improves hair’s tensile strength. It also softens frizzy, rough hair and adds extra dose of shine. Prevents splitends and retains moisture on the scalp and hair. Argan oil is extracted from seeds of Argan tree found in Morocco. It is also known as Moroccan Oil.
