My Nanny used to Oil my hair using either Coconut/Almond/sesame/Mustard Oil in rotation during my childhood every Sunday morning.She'd then soak a thick Towel in very hot Water,wring it out and tie it around my Hair to steam it.This opens the pores of the Scalp and helps Oil to penetrate deep inside
