Hair Massage Oil Recipes
Use a base of olive, sunflower, coconut, almond or lavender oil. Or you can combine them. Try different combinations to find what you feel is best for your scalp and which also appeals most to your sense of smell.
Then add a small quantity of other oils for the therapeutic value.
o Rosemary oil is beneficial for dandruff
o Tit oil is anti-fungal

The ratio of base oil to the therapeutic oil should be approximately 10: 1
Warm the oil slightly by placing the oil container in a bowl of warm to hot water.
Alternative Hair Oil Massage Recipes
As an alternative to the all oil blends, you can also blend your base oil with honey at a ratio of 3: 1 or 3: 2.
Another option is to take a ripe, peeled avocado, add a spoon of honey and a little oil and blend into a paste. This is very moisturizing and cleansing.
How to Give Yourself an Oil Hair Massage
- Massage your scalp with your fingertips covered in your oil blend. If your fingers start to feel dry, apply more oil.
- Massage your scalp with firm circular motions ensuring that you are moving your skin over your skull and not just moving the fingertips over the surface of the skin.
- Continue to massage the hair for a minimum of 10 minutes, longer is better.
- When the massage is complete, wrap a warm towel around your scalp, covering all the hair, and leave for 30 minutes.
- Wash and condition.
