Apply the oil generously to your scalp and rub the scalp gently to ensure that the oil spreads adequately to the entire area. Continue massaging the scalp for 5 minutes. Leave the oil on your hair for at least 1 hour (or up to 2-4 if you want to achieve maximum results) and then wash the hair off with a mild shampoo containing natural extracts.
