If you like, you can put on a shower cap and warm hat for better and quicker action. You decide on the time you leave the oil in. Then, wash your hair with a shampoo. You should do hair oiling at least once a week to achieve any effects.
To be honest, you must decide how often you do hair oiling: once a week or every few days. You might need to perform the treatment only every three weeks. It is similar in case of the time you decide to leave in the oil. 30 minutes is the minimum whereas the whole night – maximum. What is more, you can choose where you apply the oil – only to the scalp or maybe to the lengths. Maybe, oiling hair ends will be enough for you. Remember not to use too much of the oil. Why?
