The Great Ancient Indian Beauty Secret

We recently spoke about the benefits of coconut oil for pets, but did you know that Ayurveda suggests hair oiling once a week? Hair oiling is an Ayurvedic beauty treatment that involves massaging warm oil into the scalp as a weekly, pre-wash treatment to encourage longer, stronger and silkier hair. 

It originated more than 5,000 years ago and continues to benefit the mind, body, and soul. When you massage oil into your hair, you do not just strengthen your tresses but also indulge in self-care.

Traditionally, warm coconut oil was used, but now people like to mix different oils together with coconut oil, such as castor oil and other oils for added benefits. Massage the oil well into your scalp, so that you get all the nourishment your hair needs. Leave for an hour before you wash it out.

Did you know that hair oiling has now become an integral part of the culture abroad? No, we are not kidding. Some of the most popular names in the world have been advocating this technique for a luscious and lustrous mane. If you haven’t tried it yet, maybe this is a reminder to try it.
