Oiling is very important for nourishing your scalp and hair and even helps in curing your damage and dull hairs. I prefer to use hot oil massage as it deeply nourishes and also strengthens your weak hairs. You can use hot coconut oil or castor oil or any other oils of your choice. Simply massage the hot oil on your entire scalp for a few minutes and leave it for some time. You can even cover your hairs with a wet towel as it will help to circulate oil in your entire dry scalp deeply.

Many people especially girls or teenagers love to try new shampoo products but it’s not good for your hairs. You need to stick to one shampoo rather than using two or more shampoos at a time. When you will use one particular shampoo for a longer time than it will surely give you good result. Not only in shampoo but in any other products such as soap, conditioner, Colgate and more, you should use any one brand product for best result. Choose your favorite shampoo but as per my suggestion, try to use organic shampoos for greater result and as there is no harm in using it.

(4) Wet your hairs before hair wash:-

You need to wet your entire hairs with cold water or normal water, remember not to use hot water as it will make your hairs look dry. This will help you to remove all the stuff of any hair mask from your hairs. After that, you can apply mild shampoo directly or use it in diluted form as per your choice.

(5) Always use shampoo in the diluted form:-

You can use shampoo in diluted form but it is not necessary but if you dilute it then it will easy for application and less quantity of shampoo will be used. Shampoo your dirty hairs helps in removing dirt, bacteria, dandruff, and other stuff from your scalp and gives you a healthy hair look. By using shampoo in the diluted form will help in giving you a proper hair wash for pretty hairs.

(6) Massaging your scalp:-

Massage is one of the important factors for making your scalp and hairs strong and healthy. By doing massage on your scalp, helps to circulate blood and makes your hairs strong from root to tip. Even massaging in any body part works great as it increases blood circulation. You need to massage twice while applying hot oil or simple oil and other while you shampoo your hairs. Remember that you gently massage on your scalp with your fingertips while oiling and when you shampoo your dirty scalp. Always massage your scalp gently and not too harsh as it will make your hair roots weak and it leads to hair fall.

(7) Applying hair masks:-

It is necessary to apply hair masks or packs as it helps in repairing your damage hairs and even cures various other hair problems such as dry and dull hairs, dandruff, split ends and more. Applying hair masks on a regular basis before washing hair will help in improving hair texture and gives you bouncy and shiny hair.

In any of the season whether in summer or winter or monsoon, you must use cold water or normal water for hair wash as it will not damage your hair and scalp. Most of the people use hot water during shower as well as for hair wash but it will damage your skin cells and also your scalp becomes weak.

(12) How often to wash hairs?

Some people have the habit of washing their hairs every day but it is not a correct manner as it will make your hairs look dry. Hair produces natural oil known as sebum and regular shampooing will remove it and damage your hairs. You should wash your hairs twice or thrice in a week and it is even ok with washing your hairs on an alternate day. People who work out more and possess more amount of sweat need a regular wash to remove dirt and sweat, but it is good if they wash their hairs on an alternate day.

Many people including men and women use various hair gels and hair spray or any other hair products for hair styling purpose.
