Nowadays, we use heaps of heat based hair styling equipment on regular basis (me not included ☺️I only use them occasionally) that gives you desirable results for the time being for sure but damages your hair at a long run resulting into premature greying, and drying out the hair. But honestly, can we resist the gorgeous results the heat styling equipment give us? No, we can not! So, take the initiative to fight back and protect your through hair care. As I always say, “Your body believes in the funda of, ‘Tit For Tat’.” The way you behave with it; it will give the same back to you.
Yoga for your Hair – Hair Oiling
The best method to prevent your hair from any type of damage and reap some super awesome extra benefits; give a little time to your hair at least once a week and oil your hair! In fact, don’t wash your hair unless you haven’t oiled them. Give oil at least 6 hours to soak in your hair, work its magic and then wash your hair. The reason is the shampoos we generally use rob off the natural oils in our hair, and if you have already oiled your hair then the adequate amount of natural oils remain intact into your hair giving your hair luscious shine and healthy scalp.
History of Hair Oiling
The word ‘shampoo’ brings back some golden memories of my life. I used to be an English Literature student back then. And we had this ‘Word Origin’ topic in our syllabus. Where I learned the origin of the word ‘Shampoo’ and I was flabbergasted 😲! And you will be too once you’ll come to know. This English contemporary word Shampoo is originated from Indian word ‘Champi’ which stands for the famous Indian head/hair massage 💆 which also covers couple of other body parts like forehead, neck and shoulders and its as relaxing as you can imagine.
Coming back to the point after some interesting info; basically you don’t want to just pour the oil into hair, you want to massage with your fingers from scalp to throughout your hair for about 5 to 10 minutes.
How To Carry Oily Hair?
I usually wash my hair once a week that means I also oil my hair once a week before washing; and I keep it oil on for at least 24 hours and sometimes I don’t find time to wash my hair even after 48 hours after oiling due to my insanely busy schedule m. So, I have developed some tips and tricks to look dope even when your hair is all smothered in oil! 😉
The basic concept of the trick is:
To take away the attention from your oily hair to somewhere else!
You want to add some focal/Visual interest to your look/appearance that drags away all the attention from your hair because generally when you meet someone the point if interest are your eyes and your hair that frames your face.
You can catch the point of interest through the colour and design of your apparels and accessories. I generally do it through my accessories. You can see in the picture 👇
I have wrapped my hair into a top bun and have wore a chunky necklace that became the focal point.

This time I utilised my Cat Eye Glasses for my BossLady look! And no one bothered I had hair full of oil 😉 On the top, the Top bun goes well with the professional attire.
In a nutshell, “No ifs No buts; HairOiling is a Must”! Take care of yourselves and I’ll see you in my next post!
