Care of the hair and care of the scalp skin may appear separate, but are actually intertwined because hair grows from beneath the skin. The living parts of hair (hair follicle, hair root, root sheath, and sebaceous gland) are beneath the skin, while the actual hair shaft which emerges (the cuticle which covers the cortex and medulla) has no living processes. Damage or changes made to the visible hair shaft cannot be repaired by a biological process, though much can be done to manage hair and ensure that the cuticle remains intact.

The sebaceous glands in human skin produce sebum, which is composed primarily of fatty acids. Sebum acts to protect hair and skin, and can inhibit the growth of microorganisms on the skin. This oily substance gives hair moisture and shine as it travels naturally down the hair shaft, and serves as a protective substance preventing the hair from drying out or absorbing excessive amounts of external substances. Sebum is also distributed down the hair shaft “mechanically” by brushing and combing.

Washing and styling causes loss of naturally produced Sebum which leads to Hair looking dull and rough besides weakening it from within. Hair Oiling is a process of replenishing this sebum before its deficiency causes hair fall.
Your hair can get dry because your scalp doesn’t produce enough oil to moisturize your hair, or your hair lets moisture escape.Hair has no natural lubrication. It relies on oils made in the hair root to keep your hair moisturized and looking lustrous.
Sometimes hair doesn’t produce enough oil, which leads to dry hair. (Likewise, roots in overdrive lead to oily and greasy hair.) As you age, your hair naturally makes less oil.

You need regular hair oiling if your hair is subjected to any of the following:
  • Over-washing or using a harsh shampoo strips away your hair's natural oils
  • Blow drying your hair too often -- especially when you apply alcohol-based styling products first
  • Using heated hair straighteners or curling irons
  • Exposing your hair to lots of sun, wind, or dry air
  • Applying chemical treatments, including dyes, perms, and relaxers
Application of Oils is a very personal regime for most women. Since it has been done for centuries there are different ways people do it. But for first time hair oiling we can suggest a way that works pretty well.

Try it once and then change the procedure according to what works best for your hair
  • Take a bit of oil in your palm and rub your hands together so that a thin layer of it forms along your fingers
  • With the tips of your fingers gently massage the roots of your hair. Start from the hair just above your forehead and travel down the scalp to the back of your neck
  • Reapply the oil to your hands whenever you feel your hands are no longer covered in Oil
  • Once you have massaged the oil in the roots of your hair ( a massage should take around 10-15 min ) you can start applying the oil along the length of your hair
  • To apply oil in your hair take small bunches of hair and run them between your hands covered with oil from the roots to the tips
  • Pay special attention to the tips of your hair as it is the part that is the most damaged.
  • Keep the oil in as long as possible for it to be absorbed (different people keep it in for different times before wash. An ideal is overnight but people also keep it in for as little as 30 min find something that works for you)

Useful Tips : Tie your hair once you have oiled your hair to prevent oil form staining your upholstery and clothes . If you plan to keep it in longer we suggest using a shower cap to prevent staining.
Just like there are different foods for different needs so also there are different oils for different hair care needs. Find one that meets your needs the best. You can also customize your oils by buying oils of different needs and mixing them to make them suit all the benefits you need..
