1 Massage well:

Apply oil and massage the scalp to loosen the dead skin cells; however, don’t do it vigorously. After an hour, rinse your hair with water.

2 Wet, wet, wet:

Hair should be soaked with water before applying shampoo. Use a tablespoon of shampoo for long hair, and a little less for shorter hair. Use your fingers to spread shampoo evenly in all sections, from scalp to tips. Let the lather build up. Wash after 5-7 mins.

3 Condition them:

Apply conditioner generously and distribute it evenly, going till the ends, as this is the most damaged area. Rinse thoroughly after five minutes.

4 Remove extra water:

Squeeze as much water from your hair as you can, and then blot the hair with a towel.

5 Avoid blow dryers:

Slightly scrunch and pat your hair. Try not to use blow dryers, as they can damage your hair. Blow dry your hair only if you are in a hurry.
