You might not have guessed this, but hair oil is one of the simplest yet most effective tools for hair care. Yes, it may be greasy and oily (wouldn't have guessed that). Yet, it provides innumerable benefits for your hair.
When you step out of your house, your hair gets impacted by pollution, the weather, the sun etc. While shampooing does remove any dirt and pollution, your hair still lacks the essential nutrients it needs to maintain itself. That is why you need to oil your hair regularly.
Advantages of oiling hair:
Hair oiling means pouring oil onto your hair and massaging it into the scalp. It doesn't only form a protective layer over your hair, but also provides essential vitamins and minerals that are lost due to pollution, regular shampooing etc.
Our hair requires some lipids to look healthy. These lipids are lost due to pollution and frequent hair styling. Hair oil contains these essential lipids. So, applying oil to your hair replenishes them.
Massaging during oiling helps to exfoliate the scalp. This helps improve the circulation of blood to the scalp, which helps in bringing nutrients to your hair.

How to use:
Applying the oil is pretty straightforward if you take care of a couple of things.
Massage oil onto the scalp
Pour some oil onto your scalp and massage it well. Use circular motions and massage with your fingertips. Take care to not apply too much oil. This can make your hair feel very heavy and greasy. Start with a little. You can always apply more.
Apply to hair
Apply any excess oil from your hands onto your hair. Spread it evenly. Don't apply too much force as it may cause damage to your hair.
Wrap your head with a towel or shower cap and leave overnight. This will allow the nutrients to get absorbed.
Rinse with shampoo
The next day, shampoo as you would regularly. Be sure to use lukewarm water and avoid hot water. If your hair feels oily after shampooing once, you may shampoo again. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the scalp. You could go for a conditioner if you wish. Hair oil is a great product for many different reasons. It can be used to soothe a dry scalp, moisturize your hair, and make hair softer and shinier. It helps you fight against frizzy and flyaway hair.
