Steps for doing Hair Spa at home
1. Oil Massaging
The first step involved in hair spa is massaging. Choose oil that suits your hair. If your hair is normal you can choose coconut oil, almond oil or olive oil. But if your hair is dry or oily you can try combination of oils. For dry hair you can use coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil as base oil and sesame oil and castor oil can be used as the secondary oil. You can mix the quantity of oil as per the level of dryness. And finally for the oily hair use almond oil which are light, amla oil and light hair oils. These are easy available in shops.
How to do oil massaging: Heat the oil in a small bowl. Massage the entire hair root to tips for 10-15 minutes. This increases the blood circulation and actives the little cells and nerve ends.
