How to use herbal hair oil?

  1. Just take one or two spoons if you want to use the oil (depends on how long your hair is)
  2. If you use coconut oil, the oil will solidify, but it will be scoopable, so just take it out with a spoon and melt it in the microwave or place it near a hot stove to melt the oil.
  3. Apply the oil to the scalp and all of the hair.
  4. It is preferable to leave overnight or for several hours.
  5. Then wash your hair using just enough herbal shampoo (dont use too much as it will rip the natural oils).
