Use a mild shampoo with no alcohol that won’t dry out the hair. Use the shampoo on scalp and roots. The ends get cleansed while rinsing.

Use a conditioner or a cream rinse every time after shampooing. Conditioners soften the hair while adding nutrients and give the hair a shine. Cream rinse provides a light conditioning, detangle the hair and still give it shine.

Dry the hair carefully: use a wide toothed, hard rubber or plastic comb (metal breaks the hair) to gently detangle the hair. Ideally one should allow the hair to dry at least partially on its own.

Gently dry the hair with towel before blow-drying. Hold hair dryer at least six inches away from head to minimize heat damage.

Oil Massage

Massage increases the blood flow to the hair follicles and beneath the scalp. This helps the growth of healthy hair. Oil massage extremely relaxes body and mind. Massage is especially beneficial for dry hair as it increases blood circulations and produces natural oil. Do not use too much oil for massaging for oily hair as there is enough natural oil in scalp.

  1. It is best to use oils such as coconut oil medicated with Bringaraja, Neela, Amalaki, Haritaki, Vibhitaki, Brahmi,  Neem etc,
  2. The oil should always be lukewarm, which enables it to enter the pores of follicles easily.
  3. Add one vitamin E capsules to the oil and then massage the scalp.
  4. The oil should be applied with the help of a cotton pad.
  5. Massage should be done with fingertips only.
  6. Avoid vigorous massage after oiling as this can cause weak and brittle hair to fall.
  7. Oil interferes with adequate cleaning therefore avoid a massage before shampooing.
