Beauty Nuskhe: 6 Best Hair Oils That Work Great For Head Massages

Uff, sar pakad liya! Champi – a magic word. One thing that is often the only solution for those nagging headaches and heaviness of the head – is a fall out of the stressful lives we lead and those long hours at work. At times, a hereditary condition. However, not all hair oils are equally effective for relieving you of headaches and other similar symptoms. 

6 Best Hair Oils For Massages

Know more about these 6 oils that are best for head massages and why they are so.

1. Almond Oil

By far one of the most preferred hair oil for head massages and quite understandably so! It is closely associated with relieving headaches and muscle soreness. Not just that, it is equally beneficial for boosting hair and scalp health. Laden with a host of nutrients that work wonders as a massager, it is known for its deep hydrating benefits to dull, damaged, and curly stresses. The benefits more than make up for its heavy, sticky consistency.

2. Coconut Oil

One of the most popular hair oils, its advantages go beyond just that. It is a highly recommended oil for head massages as well. No wonder, a champi with this oil has been a tradition in most of our desi households since time immemorial. Apart from the physical application on your scalp and hair, and using it as a head massager, its subtle sweet and nutty fragrance further adds to its benefits as a muscle relaxant. 

It works well on colour-treated hair as well as damaged locks due to its deep-moisturising properties, resulting in healthy-looking, shiny, bouncy, voluminous time in a few months. Mix coconut oil with castor oil, bhringraj extracts, and amalaki, and warm it before use for wonderful results as a head massager as well as for your hair and scalp.

3. Sesame Oil

Yet another popular hair and scalp oil, this oil reduces stiffness and tightness in the scalp – the root cause of headaches and heavy heads. Not only does it work its magic as a massager, but it is also excellent for dull, dry, damaged, and bejaan locks while treating split ends and adding volume to your hair. Great as a moisturising agent, it also soothes scalp pains, inflammation, redness, and irritation. Blend it with hibiscus or brahmi extracts, to elevate its benefits as a head massager and for your precious hair and scalp. 

4. Mustard Oil

A pungent smell, so what? Not as long as you need to step out immediately. But it is actually this strong, all-grasping odour that works wonders as a head massager, although it might be far from your favourite in terms of its smell. A popular medium of cooking oil in the eastern and northern parts of India, the oil creates heat that soothes muscle tissues and the scalp, to stimulate relaxation. 

5. Jasmine Oil

The sweet smell is a potion for keeping symptoms of anxiety as it is rich in anti-depressant and antiseptic properties. It is also beneficial for reducing strain. To top that, it strengthens and thickens hair strands, contributing to their overall health. However, take care not to use it in a concentrated form as it may be a little harmful to you. Mix jasmine oil with almond oil, argan oil, or amla oil for making the most of its benefits. 

6. Olive Oil

Flaunting its Mediterranean and Middle Eastern roots, it is gradually becoming a favourite among Indians who love cooking healthy. That apart, it is becoming increasingly known as an effective head massager by aiding in relaxing your head, neck, and shoulder muscles. What’s more, it is also packed with several purifying properties that aid in healing hair pores when used along with hair cleaners.

While there are innumerable beauty nuskhe that we have proudly inherited from our dadis and nanis, a few of them works better for us than others. The same is for hair oil for head massages as well. The oil or a couple of hair oils that work wonders for you may not work the same way for everyone else around you because each of us reacts in different ways to these oils. So, try out each of the hair oils that we just listed above and use the or ones that feel just right for you. Happy champi sesh to you!
