Saroj, I am booked in for an Ayurvedic Hair treatment with you next week and, though you carefully explained things to me when we spoke I am wondering “Would you mind reminding me about when I can wash off the Ayurvedic oil application… specifically how long should I leave it in for?” I am becoming forgetful! My best, Mia
Mia I am delighted to help you, no problem at all!
The best advice I can give you is to keep the oil on for a minimum of 2-3 hours after your treatment, or overnight if possible.
When it comes to washing off Ayurvedic oils… shampoo your hair twice and do not use conditioner because the oil already acts as the conditioner (more naturally than commercially made ‘conditioners’ and skin creams which feel and smell nice but only coat the hair follicles and skin surface). The truth is that they lack the ability to deeply penetrate, moisturise, or make any lasting change to the condition of the skin or hair.
