Ever wonder why our grandmas and mom force us for hot oil massage in hair? Well, while we might think it’s so sticky and make us feel gross, it is actually their very secret to maintain and grow their hair with natural shine and lustre.
Hot oil massage to your scalp and hair is beneficial in several ways. Below are some of the few advantages of massaging your hair with hot oil.
Hot oil massage improves blood circulation around the scalp that helps to nourish hair follicles and tissues. This strengthens the hair follicle leading towards faster hair growth.
Layering your hair with oil acts as sun protection that prevents your hair from harmful UV rays.
The deep moisturization of oil massage prevents your hair from dryness, frizziness and even split ends. It results in lustrous and healthy hair.
