Are you applying hair oil everyday? 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.
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.
