Maintain Healthy Hair as you Age…
I'm in my 40s and I used to take my hair for granted when I was younger. I never truly realized the value of proper nourishment and care for my hair. As I got older, I noticed I was losing more and more hair from constant use of hair products (like gels, hairsprays, etc). Though I would do random oil treatments (with just coconut oil), it wasn't sufficient. My treatments were inconsistent (once every 1 month or after 2 months). Also, I didn't think about oil quality and its impact. Sometimes I would even use expired oil without realizing that it's lost its nourishing qualities.
After trying out a few different approaches I came up with a DIY oil treatment combination that I currently use. It quickly became one of my favorite treatments for maintaining my healthy, voluminous hair.
I had posted an even shorter version of this video on TikTok and it got a lot of views. I've put together a summary of the most common questions I received and along with my replies.
If you don't want too combine all 5 ingredients then that's totally fine. Each has it's own benefits so do this as per your preference.
Of course! I've listed the brands that I use for my oil treatment, but feel free to use any brand that you like.
After you apply this oil on your hair wipe/wash your face (the areas close to your scalp). It's easy to get some oil on your face as you are massaging, especially on the forehead. Also if you have more acne-prone skin then apply this in the daytime instead of overnight.
Leave it in your hair for as long as possible. Sometimes I've done for just 20 minutes and other times overnight. If you leave on overnight then make sure to protect your pillow in case any oil soaks through. Also be mindful that if you get this on your face it might cause you to breakout.
Most definitely! I apply this oil treatment also on my husband's hair. He leaves it on during daytime for about an hour.
I use hot water for the first 10-15 seconds to help the oil melt. (Coconut oil and ghee turn into a solid at cooler room temperature. During winter, if my room is cold it will make my hair slightly stiff.) After I let my hair soak in warm water I apply shampoo and condition. Sometimes I will shampoo it twice depending on how much oil is in my hair. Then I end with 15 seconds in cold water. You don't have to do the cold water part especially in the winter. I just like how the cold water feels on my scalp and that it completely wakes me up.
These are the two that I'm currently using:
Aveda Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo
Honestly I think this is a personal preference and it depends on how oily/sweaty your scalp gets. I usually wash my hair after 2-3 days. If I have too much sweat built up it causes an eczema flair up on my scalp. I've tired going longer without washing my hair, but the only thing that does is cause me to lose a lot of hair and my scalp gets super irritated to the point that I can't even sleep at night.
Test to make sure you are not allergic to any of the oils. Rosemary is an essential oil and it should be diluted with a carrier oil (like coconut, castor, etc) especially if you have sensitive skin.
Feel free to ask more questions if the information you are looking for isn't listed below and you need more details.
With all my love
