1. Oiling !

This is the primary step to keep your hair moisturized after washing with shampoo. Oiling is most important to follow. 

Take a required quantity of oil, apply to the scalp and massage gently so the oil can penetrate inside and show it’s benefits. 

Keep the oil 2-3 hours and then wash your hair. Gentle massage on the scalp increases the microcirculation of the scalp which gives you a relaxed feeling and also helps hair growth indirectly. 

If it is not possible for you to oil your hair every time before washing, do it at least once in a week. 

Now instead of using one single oil you can mix the few oils and make a blend of it and apply to get more benefits to hair because every oil has its different properties.

Few points you should consider before shampooing, always use lukewarm water to wash your hair and try to use mild sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfate-free shampoos are mild and cleanse the hair but the lather is less.

You can reduce hair damage by using a sulfate-free shampoo. Selection and quantity of shampoo are also important for hair health. 

Select shampoo according to your hair type if you have dry hair use shampoo which contains oils or moisturizing active, for coloured hair use shampoo which has colour protection activity etc and normally take coin sized shampoo to wash your hair and this amount will change according to your hair length.

Firstly rinse your hairs with lukewarm water it will remove some dirt and oil on the scalp and then take the coin-sized amount of shampoo and apply on scalp and hair and massage gently to form lather or you can add mix shampoo with water and then apply. 

Then wash the scalp and hairs thoroughly with lukewarm water and remove all the shampoo.
