However, it is worth bearing in mind that if you have severely oily hair, it is better to avoid olive oil in excess.

Hair oiling – basic information

Hair oiling can be done both dry and wet. In order to properly carry out the dry treatment, you should first comb your hair decently so that it is perfectly smooth. Apply the oil of your choice to your hand and warm it up slightly by rubbing your palms together. As a first step, apply the product to your scalp to moisturize it. Massage it in using a head massager with tabs, or do it in circular motions with your hands. Keep adding additional portions of the oil to yourself and apply it to your entire scalp also at the back and behind the ears. Then spread the oil from the roots to the ends and comb through with your fingers. Leave the whole thing on for 15 minutes. After that, smudge the locks with your fingers again and wrap them in a cotton cloth and leave it on for 30 minutes or even overnight. After the treatment, wash everything off thoroughly with a shampoo. The hair will then look beautiful and perfectly arranged. As for wet hair, apply the oil in the same way and let the whole thing dry. It is best then not to go to bed with such a concoction on your head. The locks may then become tangled and difficult to comb. Whichever method you choose, you will surely be satisfied with the results.
