5 Ways You’ve
Been Oiling Your
Hair All Wrong.

#3 must. stop. now.

When it comes to oiling hair there is a flood of information and a tsunami of misinformation. You’ve heard all the buzzwords - moisturise, hydrate, nourish, carrier oils, essential oils - the list is endless. And while most people talk about the seemingly endless benefits, very few actually disclose the right technique for oiling hair that truly unleashes amazing results.

It’s magical, it gives you long and strong hair that can give Rapunzel a run for her money and a dazzling shine fit for a shampoo commercial. Yeah right. You’ve tried it before and sure it seems to hydrate your strands but nothing to write home about, right?

So, if you are oiling your hair yet seeing them on your pillowcase, the bathroom floor, your hairbrush just EVERYWHERE. *ugh*. We’ve got you. And while it’s natural for hair to get thinner, drier or frizzier as we age—the right kind of nourishment and more importantly technique can bring those luscious locks back to life. 


Hair Oiling as practiced in the West, is a beauty and wellness act of applying oil to the hair. This is done to facilitate various benefits such as moisturising and nourishing the hair to promote more volume, shine and strength. Now let’s dive into all the wrongs so that we can make them right.

So, you think you’ve found the perfect hair oil. Look closer. Turn that bottle around and get a good look at the label.

Most off-the-shelf hair oils come loaded with harsh, moisture-stripping actives, and acrid parfums that smell like burnt toast! If you’re someone who likes to keep it au natural—you deserve better!

Not-so-fun-fact:Even the “all-natural” hair oils available today are, at best, blends of essential oils and base oils. *Hmph*

Instead, you should look out for oils that are made with the purest ingredients, infused with potent herbs for voluminous looking hair.



It’s not just about the oil you choose, it’s about leveraging the power of super ingredients which, when combined together, make a powerful blend that’ll give you the best results.

Authentic Ayurvedic oils which are infused with herbs such as Amla (Indian Gooseberry)- a lifegiving force for healthy hair, it adds volume and life to hair; Bhringraj (False Daisy) - commander-in-chief of keeping the scalp and hair squeaky clean; among a host of other legendary herbs.

They enhance the benefits of the oil and speed up the process of giving you the results you want.

For stronger, thicker and more voluminous hair- you need a whole army of powerful ingredients by your side and herb infused oils do just that by powering up the outcome from the same 10-minute massage.

#3 Ignoring your scalp completely

Have you been slapping on some hair oil onto your strands and considering it a beneficial hair oiling sesh? We’ve got news for you.

Your hair consists of three major portions, the hair root, follicle and the shaft—and as you’ve guessed by now, you may have been completely ignoring the two portions that need nutrients to make your hair appear thicker and fuller from within.

Scalp care is key to healthy hair. Massaging the scalp with the right hair oil, using the right technique increases blood circulation, making the delivery system of nutrients to your roots super effective. It helps exfoliate the scalp, remove buildup, strengthens the hair right from the root, adds lustre to the strands and deeply conditions hair.

So basically, oiling your scalp is where 90% of hair oiling benefits come from. Note to self: Never skip oiling your scalp. Coming up soon—the right technique for successful, result oriented hair oiling.

#4 You’re holding on too tight

Guilty of tying your hair too tight right after oiling? You’ve got to stop.

Your hair cuticles open up as you massage your scalp, thereby increasing chances of hair breakage if you tie them up too tight.

Pro tip:
Loosely tie a braid which will give your hair that much needed room to breathe and let loose.

#5 Drop that brush please!

It might as well be a weapon of mass hair breakage.

Always make sure you comb your hair with a wide tooth comb before oiling. This helps detangle the hair, enables even application of oil on the strands and it also prevents breakage.

But if you do the same thing after oiling, it’s a no-go! Hair strands can weaken and break.

Okay, okay, so what is the right way then?

Is there a technique that gives the best hair oiling results?

Marma Massage—An Ayurvedic technique for ultimate hair health

But wait, what exactly is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a holistic science of health and wellness that has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years and has been trusted for its natural remedies that yield beneficial results. A therapeutic scalp massage has been a common practice of this ancient tradition. A relaxing Ayurvedic head massage helps reinvigorate our three higher chakras—the mind, body and spirit.

According to Ayurvedic texts there are 108 vital points on the body called Marma Points. 31 of which are on the head, they’re the cross over points where arteries, veins and cranial nerves intersect. They help in draining, cooling and relieving pressure.

When massaged, these Marma Points or pressure points are activated and boost blood circulation and flow, enabling enhanced nutrient delivery and promote healthy hair.  So don’t let that hair oiling sesh go waste, make the most of it with a Marma Massage.

A Marma Massage using an authentic Ayurvedic oil can benefit in many ways.

"Before every hair wash you've got the opportunity to make your hair thicker, stronger
and shinier. Start oiling them. Now."

- A wise woman who turned her damaged hair into luscious locks ​

And before you head down a DIY adventure, we've got something that'll make your life a whole lot easier and your hair a whole lot healthier. But before the big reveal, let’s find out what women who have used the magic potion have to say.

“Fantastic Oil
Brilliant oil, super easy to use, just comb through after massaging into scalp. I sometimes leave all night and sometimes just an hour. Washes out very well and easily. Great oil to nourish hair👍”
- Janet

“My Hair and Scalp Thank Me
I don’t know if it’s just my imagination, but I feel like my hair has got thicker since using this oil, although I’ve only used it three times so far. I have long thick hair anyway but over the last ten years my hair got noticeably thinner, so I recently got it cut which made it look better, but it still felt much thinner than it used to be. However, after using this oil for the first time—I left it on overnight—I swear my hair felt much thicker, just as I remembered it! My scalp feels hydrated and softer as well and the overall appearance seems better, which seems too good to be true, but it definitely feels thicker and I’m going to continue to use it.”
- Neikka

My overall experience is this is an amazing hair product. I use this when I have the time to apply and leave it on. This morning, I left for 2 hours whilst I did my housework.

I leave my towel in place until I am ready to dry but then spray a spritzer all over my hair so I can comb it through easily, I did that anyway. My hair feels soft, silky and nourished. I have dry skin and scalp and find that I don't itch after using this oil. I am so please with this product.”
