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
Leave in the Oil for 1 hour in the Hair.We'd wash our Hair using a mixture of Soapnuts and Shikakai Pods and our final rinse would be a mugful of Water in which a cupful of Vinegar was mixed ----this added a lovely shine to our thick lustrous hair!!!Use a can of Beer (Hops) instead if you wish!!!
My niece, a master stylist just cut my hair. Love the look, I told her my hair is thinning & I use stuff that regrows hair. She told me to throw it out & just massage my head 15 mins a night w/almond oil to stimulate the follicles & hair will grow back. She does this with results. 81
Many things work fine by using half of the recommended amount. One aspirin, instead of two, usually does the job. You don't need to "rinse and repeat" when washing hair & can use half the detergent for laundry unless hair & clothes have been rolling in mud or oil.
Remember that companies want you to buy their products again and again, so they will recommend you use a certain amount. But experiment to find how little will do the job. Of course, you don't want to skimp on important medications, nutrients, or safety features.
