Nothing feels better than a hot oil hair treatment during the winter season! Not only is it an incredible way to moisturise your hair, but it also helps strengthen and protect the hair. The list of the benefits of hair oiling is a long one, but what comes after is also important. Yes, we are talking about shampooing your hair post-hair-oiling.

If you all tend to make a few hair oiling mistakes, fret not! Here’s the right way to properly wash your hair after using hair oil.

How to wash your hair after an oil treatment?

Scroll down to know the right steps to oil your hair properly:

Step 1: Let the oil sit in your hair long enough

Did you know hair oil treatments nourish your scalp and strands for several hours even if you do it for 10 minutes? But that doesn’t mean that you should wash the oil just after a few minutes without letting it do its job. So, make sure the oil is there long enough to nourish your hair and make them look beautiful.

Step 2: Use the right shampoo

When we talk about rinsing the oil out of your hair, don’t use just any shampoo you want. Choose a shampoo suitable for your hair type, texture, and oil usage! The best option is to go for a clarifying shampoo that will help you remove all the hair oil from your tresses and not leave any product residue.

Step 3: Use warm water to clean your hair

Now, it’s time for the chosen shampoo to meet your demands! Using cold water to clean your hair might not be the best option if you have just done oiling them. In fact, cold water may cause your strands to harden and you don’t want that sort of problem. You might even need to shampoo your hair a few times to get rid of the oil, but do not overdo it. Washing it too many times can also undo the effects of hair treatment.

Step 4: Use a hair rinse

You can also use a hair rinse to get rid of the extra oil in a gentle manner. You can choose the rinse according to your hair type and the kind of oil you have used. Natural ingredients and hair-friendly chemical ingredients are available in the market to help you out. You can also ask your doctor to suggest one according to your hair type and requirements.

Step 5: Don’t forget the conditioner

The last step is to use a conditioner to complete the whole process of washing away your hair oil. Now that you have used a clarifying shampoo, your strands will be prepared for the additional moisture. The best part is that you don’t have to think too much and select any conditioner that suits your hair type. However, do not forget to apply conditioner only on your strands and not your scalp.
