Applying hair oil everyday?

Applying oil on your hair everyday?We are here to answer the age old question, Can i put oil to my hair everyday? If you are among those who applying hair oil everyday please read this article carefully.

If you are using Satthwa Premium Hair Oil we recommend that you apply hair oil to your scalp and hair only 2 times a week but because of our Indian culture where applying oil on a daily basis is a norm, we get a lot of people asking why we recommend applying oil only 2 times a week and not everyday?

Firstly, we recommend applying the oil on the scalp and not just the hair, whereas people who apply oil on a daily basis, generally just pour a few drops of oil on their hands and then apply to their hair to get the shine and nothing else.

When you apply oil on your hair everyday, it attracts a lot of dust to your hair (especially here in India) and this dust also settles down on your scalp, not only does this clogs pores and creates excess oil on the scalp but it also increase your hair fall.

Now when your scalp is not clean and has dust on it and when you pour oil and massage your scalp, the dust particles rub against the skin and damages it. In the long run this friction can create bald spots as well.

Coming back to the reason why we recommend hair oil only 2 times a week and that to overnight. Hair Oil is something which give nourishment to the hair roots and also protect the scalp from infection etc. Applying 2 times a week makes sure that the rest of the week, your scalp pores remain unclogged and also that you do not need to use shampoo too often. We recommend a sulfate free shampoo when you do shampoo your hair.

Lastly, make sure when you use hair oil on your scalp, you gently massage the scalp with your fingers, what this does is increases the blood circulation to the hair roots which boosts hair health.

  1. Which is the best combination shampoo for Satthwa premium hair oil……. Reply me with name of the product… Please…!

    1. In general, you should use SLS and Paraben free shampoo with or without the use of oil. You can google this and you will find a few brands which do have such shampoos, namely Khadi and Himalaya.

  2. Daily hair oiling is a myth that has been carried over generations in India. One can oil his or her hair and scalp twice or a maximum of thrice a week. Daily hair oiling will restrict the hair follicles and thus will reduce the production of natural hair oils that maintain the health of ones hair.

  3. First time i’m going to place a order your product after a long browsing & review about oil,… I need small favor from you guys we typical Telugu family we use only shikakai powder for hair wash/… is there any problem for using shikakai, after applied satthwa oil.
    pls suggest ….

    1. Dear Priyanka, you can was with shikakai or anything else as long as the scalp becomes oil free after wash. Basically, if shikakai will remove all excess oil from the scalp then that is the only requirement.

  4. one really need query, while sathwa hair oil can be applied just two times a week so can we apply some other oil as well on other remaining 5 days if yes so suggest me that alternative hair oil which can be used along with sathwa hair oil, reply as soon as possible also please suggest me one combinated hair shampoo sulphate free which can be used with sathwa hair oil

    1. Rishabh, the purpose of this article was to let you know that there is no need to apply hair oil on a daily basis. It is actually counter productive. If you want to apply oil purely for shine, then apply coconut oil 1-2 drops, rub on your palm and then apply only on your hair.

    1. Hi Vikas, we still would not recommend you daily oiling and shampoo, though you can use it for 3-4 times a week as you intend to keep the bald look.

    1. Hi Olive, since hair oil should be applied on the scalp mainly, you can apply a small amount even on bald head and it would be beneficial to your scalp skin and hair roots.
