How to use Jojoba Oil for Dry Scalp

How Jojoba Oil works on Dry Scalp

Jojoba oil is composed of a molecular structure, which is closely related to the natural oil or sebum of all of us. It is used in skin care products because of its ability to penetrate into the skin & slow down the loss of moisture. It has an effective treatment on rejuvenating and hydrating, which makes your hair lessen itchiness and dryness. When applied on the scalp, it may help in getting rid of dryness & dandruff. Due to its antioxidant properties, it may also help in protecting hair follicles from damage.

How to use Jojoba Oil for Dry Scalp

Step 1: Apply the oil directly to scalp and hair roots. Amount will vary depending on degree of scalp dryness.

Caution: It shouldn’t exceed more than two tea spoons.

Pro tip: Heat the oil before applying. DON’T heat the oil directly on a stove or in a  microwave as it can damage the nutrients of the oil. Best way of heating the oil is to pour into a steel or glass container and place the container in warm water until you feel the oil has reached lukewarm stage.

Extra: Apply the oil on rest of your hair to make them softer and smoother

Step 2: Start Massaging the oil on your scalp.

On the base of your skull, rub your fingernails in an up-down zigzag motion starting symmetrically with each hand behind your ears and making your hands meet right above your neck. Do that several times. For the top of your scalp, rub from your ears to the middle of your scalp, but horizontally. If none of that makes sense to you, just rub your scalp in small circular motion, keep going for a few minutes and apply a little bit of pressure as you do. Make sure you’re doing a deep rub so you get a nice tingling scalp afterwards.

Pro tip: Wrap your hair in a towel after you’re done massaging

Step 3:

Option 1: Let the oil stay in for 30 to 45 minutes,

Option 2: Let the oil soak into the scalp and hair roots overnight.

Note: You’ll need to test it out which one works best for you. Some people get relief from applying it for just under an hour while others find it much more effective leaving it overnight. It is best to start with option 1 and see how things go.

Step 4: Wash it out with a mild shampoo.

Note: Don’t let the oil stay in for more than a day.

Mixing Jojoba Oil with a few drops of Tea Tree Oil will make this treatment much more effective.
