Step 1 – Oil your hair
The first step in doing a hair spa is to oil your hair well. Take some olive oil or coconut oil, heat it a little bit, then apply it on your hair. You could also leave it on overnight so as to condition it well.
Step 2 – Massage your scalp
While you oil your hair, make sure to massage it well. You could massage it in a circular motions for 5-10 minutes. Massaging your scalp is known to increase blood circulation and hair growth. Always massage it gently so as to not cause breakage due to pulling.

The next step would involve washing your hair. Use a mild shampoo while doing so. Even though we all love our hot water showers, it is known to weaken the roots thus cause breakage. Always try to use lukewarm or cold water in order to prevent such damage.
In case you have coloured your hair, use a shampoo that is suited for coloured hair.
Step 4 – Apply Conditioner
Once you have washed the oil, you should apply conditioner on your hair. You can use a conditioner that you have bought or make your own at home. A mixture of tea leaves water and a few drops of lime juice is known to act as a great conditioner.
Step 5 – Rinse
Once you have applied conditioner on your hair, after keeping it for a few minutes rinse it off. Use cold or lukewarm water while doing so.
