I used a reference photo to paint this artwork.

Happy Monday My dear kind WordPress neighbours. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„

Touching the tail is a big offense for my cats. Grandma Alex and grandson Ambrie are in this video. Ambry will touch everything that moves, not his fault, just an instinct. Grandma should know. The same thing Alex did with her mother Sophie years back and Sophie spanked Alex. When instinct rules, lessons are never learned. To learn a lesson we need bigger brains than our instincts. My cats had the power to change me. I learned selfless service, humbleness, patience, and accepting a sense of loss and grief when anyone of my cat died. I adopted cats in 2018.

Happy Friday my dear kind fellows . Praise to Almighty God.

One smile can be a sufficient remedy both to your physical and mental pain. Don’t allow anyone to take away your smile. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜† An acrylic portrait I did some years back. Hopefully I will resume to my art soon.

Happy Sunday. God bless you all.

When we are growing old we know about life too much. Knowing about life too much sometimes is not good for health. Clouds shouted ” we are here ” . just ” be ” there and watch us ” so I offered some moments of my life to them. ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฅ€๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธโ›น๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ•Š

Happy Thursday my dear kind fellows.

These are my summer tenants. Building their first home this year. Last summer they built a big settlement just above our gate and gave us some annoying time. Still I love them for some mysterious reason.

Happy Thursday my dear kind fellows. Peace and abundance be with you all.

Why should we use hair oils?

Why should we use the hair oil?

My todayโ€™s topic is about oiling our hair. What kind of oils are good and nutritious for our hair? How much frequently we can use oil? Oiling hair or body is an old tradition worldwide. We should also know that what not to use that is harmful or useless. Oils provide protection to hair and scalp against environmental factors and internal physical factors that pose threat to the hair. A good hair oil is necessary to get healthy, shiny hair.   

For many people hair oil is every day need and they keep this product with them. Since not every oil has the same properties, we must know whatโ€™s best for our hair. Our hair follicles produce sebum that travels down the hair and keeps the hair healthy and shiny. unfortunately for multiple reasons this sebum is not enough to keep the hair moisturized. Here oils come to help.

Scalp and hair damage

The use of hair oil for moisturizing and protection is not new but we have more knowledge now. Oils are highly beneficial for hair and scalp. Oils can be very different for different hair types.

โ€˜โ€™ In our Indo-Pak region hair massage is leisurely activity at the weekends, mostly mothers and grandmothers keep reminding how much hair massage is beneficial. โ€˜โ€™ 

 Texture protection of hair

Everyone has a different hair texture. Some have fine while others have coarse and dense hair. Hair can be wavy, curly. straight or fleece like.

Fatty oils \ vegan oils

Oils from vegetables are extracted from seeds, flowers, leaves and nuts. These oils are more viscous than essential oil and they evaporate in the air more slowly for that reason. The oil in the seeds is meant to protect the seed.

Braiding and hair oiling

In the Indo-Pak region oiling and braiding are still common to protect the hair against damage. They prefer long hair of girls over short hair since long hair is beauty symbol in the culture.

โ€˜โ€™ long, black and shiny hair for girls is considered a beauty asset in the Indo-Pak regionโ€™โ€™

Essential oils

These oils are taken from plants too. For example, they can be extracted from trees, berries, grasses, leaves fruits or other parts of plants.ย  The strong aroma of plants is helpful in pollination. Essential oils are very concentrated and need to be diluted before otherwise they can irritate or harm the skin.ย  ย 

Lavender oil, rosemary oil, lemongrass oil, cedarwood essential oil, peppermint essential oil, lavender is good for deep conditioning the hair, controls the dandruff and keeps the hair soft and shiny. jojoba oil provides nutrition, moisturizes the hair and stimulates the scalp. argan oil is antioxidant to hair. Coconut oil and olive oil can resist UV rays up to 30 %. 

Types of hair

1.      Fine hair

2.      Frizzy hair

3.      Split ends

Letโ€™s discus them one by one

 1.Fine hair

For flimsy and fine hair some light oil like jojoba oil, apricot, almond, grape or fig oil should be used. Be careful and donโ€™t use excessive oil otherwise oil and hair both will stick to the scalp.  

2.Frizzy hair

The dryness damages the hair. To correct the frizz or dryness use oils with fatty acids and vitamin E like argan oil.

3.Split ends

Warm coconut oil or rapeseed oil is best for split ends of hair. Use these oils before going to bed at night.

Benefits of using hair oil

  • Protection from heat damage
  • Hair growth  

Oils prevent the hair breakage that ultimately increases the hair life and strength. Peppermint and rapeseed oils are the best for light scalp massage to increase the blood flow and helping hair to get nutrition

  • Action against dryness

Oils contain vitamin E and useful fatty acids and create a barrier against losing natural moisture of hair. The oil film even prevents humidity entering the hair shaft and keeps dryness and split ends far away.  

  • Strengthening the hair

Hair oils provide protection from breakage of hair and help with the strength of hair.   

  • Protection of hair melanin

UV radiation destroys the natural color and shine, while good organic oils provide protection against these factors and save the hair melanin. Plant based oils are the best protection against UV radiation. You can make your own hair spray by mixing your favorite oils like coconut, rapeseed and almond with water and when you get out in the sun apply this spray on hair.  

  • Detangling

Hair oils when applied to wet hair help detangling and protect from heat styling adding extra shine. Apply small amount of oil on wet hair, gently straighten out hair knots with a wet brush. Before blow dry use oil on wet hair to reduce the heat damage.

.How to choose the best hair oil ?

It depends on hair type to decide what hair oil is the best for your hair.

โ€˜โ€™ organic oils like grape, coconut, argan, almond, rapeseed, and apricot are the best for frizzy hairโ€™โ€™
