Friday- Oil Massage

Blame it on the stress, the heat, the roaming or anything else, the fact is - my hair is falling, and how! The thickness of my hair is only half of what it was, say, like a year back. When I asked my beauty parlor woman Nasreen(who is this super cool person), she said, do oil massage. (Goes to flashback...Nandhini: Oil massage ஒரு experience. எல்லாரும் அதை ஒரு தடவையாவது பண்ணனும். சுகமா இருக்கும் டி...) I realized the time had arrived to yield to the temptation. I wanted to do it last Saturday, but after dad yelled, "சனிக்கிழமை பெண்கள் எல்லாம் தலையில என்னை தேய்ச்சு குளிக்க koodaadhu. நாங்க எது சொன்னாலும் நீ கேட்கறது இல்ல...blah blah blee....", I decided against it. And, coincidence, I did it today and here is the post! என்ன ஒரு சுகம்!! அடடடா! செமையா தூக்கம் வந்துடுச்சு! But when I came and narrated, dad said, " அந்த பைசாவ எனக்கு குடுத்திருந்தா நானே பண்ணி விட்டிருப்பேன்" Typical of him.

By the way, when I googled, I found this:

One of the time-tested treatments for hair loss is oil massage. You can use any one of the following oils – almond oil, olive oil, lavender oil, coconut oil, and castor oil – for your hair massage. You can use any of these alone or as a combination. Another time-tested remedy to grow hair is applying freshly squeezed onion juice to the scalp. You can also combine the onion juice with an egg and a tablespoon of olive oil. This will work wonders towards re-growing your hair. You can also make a mixture of one egg, juice extracted from one lime, and one tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil. Whip this mixture and apply it to your scalp and hair. Leave it on for two hours before you wash it off. Apart from taking care of the hair growth this mixture will also take care of any dandruff that you might have. Apart with working towards growing your hair you also need to stop doing things that make you loss your hair. Hair dryers, curlers, hair irons, coloring, perming are some of the things that make you loss a lot of hair. Avoid all these things as much as possible. Also, avoid taking on any kind of stress and make sure your daily diet includes foods rich in vitamin B and folic acid, as these are know to promote hair growth.
