We have been making you aware about the various benefits of oiling your hair by means of various blogs. We have explained why it is indeed great to oil your hair at regular intervals. But what you also need to ensure is that it is done in right manner. In fact certain hair experts feel that hair oiling if not done properly can actually lead to hair loss. Being one of the leading clinics for providing hair loss treatment, we at ByeByeBaldy thought it would be appropriate to let you know the right ways of going this process. This is what we will try to do through this blog.
Benefits of hair oils
In our earlier blogs like the one titled “WANT TO HAVE HEALTHY HAIR? HERE’S HOW HAIR OILS CAN HELP“ we explained in details about the benefits of applying hair oil. Hair oils like coconut oil or sesame oil is indeed good for hair health. These oils contain important fatty acids that help seal the cuticle and heal the strands from within. If done properly regular hair oiling can indeed improve the tone and texture of your hair. However what you need to be aware also is that excessive vigorous massage can cause your hair roots to become weak. Overdoing the oil can also result in an excessively oily scalp. It could also obstruct the pores of your scalp, causing folliculitis or boils. Besides, if you have dandruff on your scalp, excess oil will worsen the problem.
Hot oil massage or normal oil massage?
Out of the two, warm oil massage is likely more effective than cold. The reason is that the hot oil would increase the blood circulation to your scalp and hair roots. This would also allow the oil to absorb better. But the hair oil you apply should be warm, not too hot because using too hot oil runs the risk of burning your scalp.
Frequency of using hair oil
It is best to oil your hair no more than 1 to 2 times a week. You could leave the oil on for approximately an hour or two after applying, but not more than that. When you leave oil on too long you run the risk of zits because oil will run down into your skin and you also would not add any real benefit by leaving it on longer.
Should the oiling routine for men and women be different?
Another question which you might think of is about your oiling routine based on gender. Oiling methods for men and women are pretty similar. There is no difference. The only thing is that men may need more oiling, because generally women tend to take more care about their hair.
To conclude we hope that the above mentioned tips would to some extent help you with your overall oiling routine. To know more about hair health or hair loss treatments please visit our website.
