Most of us long for a full head of shiny, curly, healthy-looking locks. You may want to look past your pretty strands if you want to ensure your hair stays healthy and bouncy. Look past the hair and at your scalp. If your scalp is unhealthy, your hair is likely unhealthy too. The scalp lays a foundation from which hair grows. Massaging oil into your scalp to keep it healthy will help your hair look and feel better.
How do I know if my scalp is unhealthy?
If you want a healthy head of hair, you will need to make certain the follicles are clear, clean, and well-maintained. You want to make sure they aren’t full of sebum or obstructed by dandruff, inflammation, or dead skin. If you notice you are shedding hair, your scalp feels tight or itchy, or your hair’s texture changed, your scalp may be unhealthy.
How do oils benefit the scalp?
Using Lilyam handmade oils on your scalp can help prevent hygral fatigue, protect follicles when you wash your hair, and help restore the right balance of moisture to your hair. Just massaging your scalp once a week is enough to stimulate it into action. Here are some of the benefits you can experience from massaging oil into your scalp.
- Increase circulation
- Adds shine to your hair
- Stimulate growth
- Adds moisture
- Reduce dry scalp and dandruff
How do I use oil for a healthy scalp?
Put a small amount of oil on your fingers. Using both hands, massage starting at the nape. Continue slowly working your fingers up to the crown of your head. Then start working from the base of your ears up toward the top of your head on both sides. It should take you three to five minutes to massage the oil into your scalp. You do not have to go fast. Take your time.
How often should I oil my scalp?
It’s up to you and your lifestyle to determine how often you should massage your scalp with oil. Generally, for a healthy scalp, you should use massage oil at least once a week. If you are using it as a pre-shampoo, there should not be a problem with buildup.
