Why should you regularly oil your hair?

If you still have healthy hair on your scalp, you know who to thank! When you treat your tresses to a good hot oil massage, it not only increases blood circulation in hair follicles, but also stimulates hair growth and serves as an easy and economical solution to a plethora of hair woes such as frizziness, dryness, split ends, etc. Sounds pretty great and doable now, isn’t it?

Hair oil penetrates into the scalp tissue and nourishes it with rare fatty acids, vitamins and proteins that strengthen your hair strands from deep within.
Oiling your tresses the right way
2. Choose a nourishing carrier oil such as coconut oil, argan oil, mustard oil, and the likes of it and mix it with an essential oil for example lavender, rosemary, lemongrass or peppermint oil.3. Start by massaging the oil with your finger tips on the scalp and hair roots.
