How To Apply
It is absolutely safe to apply vegetable oil to your scalp directly. Take a few drops of the oil and start massaging the scalp with your finger tips. Don’t use your nails. Apply slight pressure while massaging in small circular motions. Next, you should oil the hair strands as well.
Once you are done with massaging it is time to steam your hair. Soak a towel in hot water, squeeze out the excess water, and wrap it around your hair like a turban. You should let your scalp and hair absorb the heat and oil for at least half an hour. After that, shampoo off the oil in the usual manner.
An Oily Affair
The benefit of vegetable oil massage is that it helps in dislodging dandruff and dead skin cells from the scalp. Thus, when you wash it, all the dandruff and fine dust particles are washed out. Next time you grab your bottle of conditioner, substitute it with vegetable oil.
