Recently I was just as delighted as a lady who shared with me how she found out sesame oil and water worked great to restore the health of her scalp and hair. Consistently using sesame oil for her scalp massages and to apply on her hair has stopped her scalp from itching. Since then, her hair has become less dry and fizzy which makes her really happy.
It is indeed good news from her and I am as delighted to hear that she found that sesame oil does wonders for her scalp and hair. Incidentally, sesame oil is something I also use occasionally for especially my scalp massages.
In fact, I use a variety of oils and it all really depends on how I feel or what recipe I feel like doing during a certain period of time, like for a couple of weeks. I ‘spontaneously schedule’ and rotate my hair recipes while exploring new stuff or new ways to mix and match the ingredients I know work to grow hair long fast.
I will share some sesame oil recipes to grow hair long fast. However, if you wish to give sesame oil a try, as always, you need to first check with your doctor for any allergies – especially if it is something new to you. I do know of a few friends who are allergic to sesame, as some are allergic to nuts.
Once you are ready, here are some ways to use this simple and cheap oil.
Sesame Oil Hair Spray
This is the simplest recipe. Put 2-3 drops of sesame oil and some water into a handy and small pump or spray bottle that you can with you. Before use, just give this mixture a good shake to mix well. Then spray or squirt some on your hands to apply to your hair ends. Well, now you have a handy little bottle of hair spray or hair moisturizer to use throughout your day as and when you need.
Hair sprays are the easiest to make and can be very handy especially when I know I need to be outdoors like in the sun, in the park, on the beach, etc. After a swim and after I wash my hair, using just a little of this natural spray does wonders to moisture dry hair.
Sesame Oil Scalp Massage
Follow these 6 steps for a-feel-good sesame oil and scalp massage:
Step 1 – Comb your hair. Wash your hair clean and dab dry.
Step 2 – Apply sesame oil directly on to your scalp using your fingertips. Do not apply on to your hair ends. Now, massage your scalp for some at least 5-10 minutes. Get the oil to penetrate into your scalp skin or pores.
Step 3 – For dry, coarse, brittle or fizzy hair, apply some sesame oil on to your hair ends with the palm of your hands. Glide them evenly onto your hair or use a comb.
Step 4 – Leave on for 30 minutes. If you feel you want to wrap your hair up in a warm towel, this is great too, especially for dry textured, fizzy or coarse hair.
Step 5 – Otherwise, you may leave this on overnight. Just remember to use a cloth or towel to cover your pillow. Wash this off when you wake up the next day. Otherwise, you may also skip this step and move on to Step 6.
Step 6 – Wash and rinse your hair with mild shampoo. Your hair is clean. There is no need to wash until it is too dry and ‘squeaky clean’. It is alright if your hair feels ‘moist’. Otherwise, if it feels too dry, especially for dry textured hair, you may want to spray some moist to it later. Another way is to add honey to your mild shampoo as a conditioner.
Sesame Oil Hair Conditioning Warm Treatment
This is not something you need to do every day as this takes more time to do. For dry, coarse, brittle and hair with split ends do this routine once or twice a week, for a good start. Then you may lessen the number of times depending on the condition of your scalp and hair.
When you are ready, here are 6 simple steps to follow:
Step 1 – Comb your hair. Wash your hair and dab dry.
Step 2 – Put sesame oil in a small flat-like dish. Place this dish on a mug of steaming hot water to warm the oil.
Step 3 – Apply warm sesame oil on to your scalp lines or skin – again, not on your hair, yet. Take your time to do your scalp massage really well.
Step 4 – Apply or ‘glide’ sesame oil evenly on your hair, especially hair ends. Use a comb to do this evenly.
Step 5 – Wrap a hot towel over your hair. Leave your hair wrapped for 30 minutes to 1 hour – this really depends on your own convenience and time.
Step 6 – Remove towel, wash and rinse hair with a good mild shampoo.
Take your time to have fun, play around and fine tune your recipes to best suit you or suit your scalp and hair condition.
