· Heat your oil
The first step is applying oil. You can use coconut oil or olive oil or any other of your choice, heat it in a plate for 10-20 seconds until lukewarm. Make sure it is not too hot and is comfortable to touch and then apply it to your head.
Begin from the scalp and then spread the rest of the oil to your hair. After applying hair oil massage your head for about 5-7 minutes. Massaging your head improves blood circulation and helps lowering hair fall.
· Wrap a warm damp towel around your head
Dip a clean towel in warm water and then squeeze it to remove all the excess water until its damp. Wrap the towel around your head. Keep it for 5-7 minutes. The heat will help open your follicles and absorb the oil in them.
· Wash your hair with lukewarm water
Wash your hair after 7 minutes. Don’t use hot water or extremely cold water, instead, choose lukewarm water. Use a mild shampoo to clean off the extra oil. In case you have dry hair use conditioner to make it soft.
· Choose and prepare your mask
Choose what kind of mask you want to apply to your hair. It can be a banana mask, yoghurt mask or any other mask bought from the shop. It’s advised to use the homemade mask for better results. Make sure to make enough masks as per your hair.
· Apply your mask
While applying the mask, start from the roots. Make sections of your hair, so that the mask is applied evenly to your hair. After the application covers your hair with a shower cap and keeps the mask for 20-30 minutes. If you are using lemon in your mask don’t keep it for more than 5 minutes.
· Wash off your mask
After 30 minutes wash off your mask with lukewarm water and mild shampoo. Make sure that your hair is completed cleaned. Apply a conditioner if you have dry hair and leave it for few minutes and again wash it off. If you are using store-bought mask, they might have different instructions of cleansing, follow them.
· Pat dry your hair
After cleansing, pat dry your hair. Don’t rub your hair with a towel, instead just use the towel to soak the excess water and then leave your hair to naturally dry. Avoid using a hairdryer.
