Caring for your Scalp > Any oil will do

Any oil will do

January 28, 2013 — 11:18pm

I have used canola and olive oil on my scalp with great results. Many people seem to leave it on overnight but I have found that leaving it on for just half an hour is fine. That way you don’t have to deal with wearing a shower cap to bed. I also use a plastic scalp massager that has about 50 small points. Not only does it rub the oil into my scalp it also removes the scales.


  • I have found that Virgin Coconut Oil – cold pressed and unrefined, really helps relieve my feet and toes from burning and itching. It feels wonderful and absorbs amazingly fast.

  • can you explain to me what a plastic scalp massager, and do you think I could purchase (same) in thailand. Thank You.
