    it would be ideal if you shampoo it off. apply it to your hair, and as you do, massage your scalp. leave it on for an hour and shampoo it. if you leave oil on your hair, it could attract dirt.

    Hi

    Applying oil to hair is very good and also very essentail. But at same time washing your hair is also equally important. If you apply oil and just wash it in normal water it is not good. Reasons - your hair will start smelling bad, chances of fungal infections, oily skin etc. So it is ideal to apply oil and keep on ur hair for 3-4 hours max, then wash your hair with mild shampoo or with good recommended shampoo along with conditioner. Then only your hair will look rich and heathly and also very shiney. You are not interested in shampoo then you can go for old days method shikakai... which is also good for your hair. But for some ppl shikakai will create a bit dusty on the hair... so you can try for couple of times if it is not working out, better to shift over to shampoo/ conditioner.... pls wash your hair if you have oiled it.. other wise u wil have hair prob and thin hair results.

    Hai Friends,
    To get full benefits from coconut oil, and long hair you can heat coconut oil and castor oil (coconut oil + 1/4 castor oil) and apply at night and wash it at morning. You should strictly wash it on morning. This can be done only once in a week. You will get better results.

    Put coconut oil on the inside and the next day, rinse it before putting it on, then the next day rinse.Apply directly to the scalp massage from roots to ends, leave for at least 30 minutes before washing. For best results, leave as long as you can and apply at least three times a week

    Apply coconut oil either luke warm or normal in the scalp;Massage well for about 5 to 10 minutes.The indication for a good massage is that you should start feeling slightly drowsy.Stay for an hour which is perfect.Wash off using a good nourishing shampoo.
    Never leave oil in your hair.That is a very unhealthy practice and not good for the scalp as it attracts dirt and grime.
