Holiday Season Haircare: Ginger Hair Oil.

Holiday season Haircare

Holiday season is all about parties and festivities, and that calls for a lot of hair styling. To protect your hair from all the hair styling tools and the dry winters, it is important to protect the hair and give it that extra care during this season.

And that’s why for this first holiday post I am sharing with you my favorite hair care secret – Ginger Oil!

Why Ginger?

Ginger is one of the most healthiest spice, I love adding ginger to my morning cup of tea. Today I’m going to share with you a simple 2 ingredient recipe for this miracle hair oil. Ginger helps in blood circulation and fights dandruff. It also helps in hair growth and gives a glossy shine to the hair.

As Ginger stimulates blood circulation, it gets oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the scalp nourishing the scalp and hair follicles.

This ginger infused oil is perfect for the festive season, to give your hair the extra pampering it needs to shine at its healthiest!

Hair care for glossy shiny hair

What do you need?

Just two magic ingredients

  • 8 teaspoon Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon Grated ginger
  • How to make it?
  • Ginger hair oil for shiny healthy hair

    Heat the olive oil in a pan and then add the grated ginger. Leave on low heat. Once the ginger turns brown turn the heat off and allow the oil to cool. Next strain the oil and store in a bottle.

    This concoction will also fill your home with a warm ginger smell giving it a real holiday season vibe.

    How to apply it?

    Using a cotton ball dipped in a small amount of oil apply gently on the scalp, and massage.

    I love to wrap my hair with a warm towel(hot turban therapy) , so the oil gets penetrated better. Read here about Hot turban therapy.

    Leave for 10 minutes and wash off with shampoo and warm water.

    Now you are all set to for the festivities with this home made super easy magic hair oil.
