You all know that oiling is very good for hair. We can use any oils according to our choice. If we used to a particular oil for hair and if we change to another oil, our hair and scalp will not accept the new oil immediately. But if we apply that oil for few times it becomes suitable. My personal opinion is stick to one suitable oil because changing oils may cause temporary hair loss etc.
There are so many ways we can prepare homemade hair oils to use in our hair. All the different recipes for hair oils are for making the oil suitable to apply on hair. Moreover it can help the total health of hair and hair growth.
The first thing is to select or find out a suitable oil to prepare homemade hair oil. I know coconut oil is very simple. Definitely I can recommend to others. It is very simple and light oil. But some may not like the natural smell of virgin coconut oil. For them I recommend purified coconut oil. In Europe and U.S people use olive oil. Ground nut oil, castor oil, gingelly oil or even sun flower oil also have been used in many places. But for people with oily skin and hair they don't bother about applying oils and it is OK.
The second step is to make the oil hot. You can apply oils without heating. But hot oil is better. Because by heating we can avoid certain difficulties by putting oil directly. If the oil is a little old and by heating the oil we can make the oil perfect for applying on hair.
How long we have to heat oil? Not to boil, only heat it. In Kerala and other states of India there is a method following to heat the oil. Heat the oil in low flame, then the fumes start to come watch it and add few grains of paddy or corn. When the grains pop up switch off the flame. That is the heating level. Do not allow the grains to burn darker.
And there are lots of local plant leafs added to the oil. But that plants are not available now. Today I am giving you a homemade hair oil recipe with curry leaves. Curry leaves are known to treat dandruff and it can reduce hair loss. That way it can help hair growth.
