Though oiling the hair originated in India, given its myriads of benefits, hair oils are now popular worldwide. Applying oil to the hair is an important part of the traditional Indian beauty regimen. In the hot and humid Indian climate, hair-oiling is known to work wonders for the tresses. The protective barrier that the hair oil forms on the hair shafts helps in minimizing damage following exposure to the ultraviolet radiation of the sun, pollution and dust. Massaging the scalp with oil tends to boost blood circulation that helps in strengthening the hair. The nutrients in the oil that are capable of penetrating the scalp skin nourish the hair roots. Furthermore, free from chemicals, the natural oils are best for conditioning the hair. (1) The following hair oils currently available in India are considered best for hair growth.
