Emphasis should be laid on cleansing and toning routines. The cleansing routine involves washing and rinsing the hair. Since the hair to be washed as frequently as it gets dirty and oily, a natural shampoo or a formula of aromatic herbs such as sage, amla, shikakai, and trifla is ideal. The ideal shampoo is always gentle though thorough in dissolving grime.
Massaging the hair and scalp is important. For oily hair, a massage with toning lotion is suitable. A two-minute brushing, stroking and combing routine is sufficient massage exercise for the scalp.
