Apply lots of oil before shower and it moisturize your hair for long time
Do not apply gel or creams
should i apply shampoo during shower?
Yes you have to apply shampoo
or just plain water and let it dry on its own.
better use mild shampoo like baby shampoo
Dr. if i apply shampoo then my hair remains dry only. currently im using sunsilk.
Along with shampoo use conditioner also
does that mean i should apply lots of oil, followed by shampoo and then no oil after shower. this is to be done everyday?
Apply oil one hour before shower. you can do thrice a week
ok. and on other days can i continue what im doing now which is applying oil after shower?
If you travel after oily hair it increases dandruff and hair fall
Oil hair can easily get affected by pollution
my hair is not exposed to heat or dust as much. that happens only during transits from home to car and car to office/offices during meeting. and besides this a half to 1 hr walk some times in the evening. most of the days its just twnety minutes walk in the evening

if you are not exposing to dust then you can apply oil after shower also once it dries
ok. oil only on dry hair.
Along with that eat healthy food
