There are several different ways. Choose the one that suits you best. One of the most popular methods is hair oiling. Oiling with hemp oil will work well if your hair is dry, dull, stiff and easy to frizz. Hair can be oiled dry or wet. If you apply the oil to dry hair, comb it thoroughly and apply it strand by strand. You can leave the oil on your hair for a minimum of 45 minutes, and if you feel your hair needs it, leave it on overnight. Then put on a protective cap to avoid leaving greasy stains on the bedding. The procedure for wet oiling is very similar; just remember to wash your hair with a natural shampoo. This will facilitate the penetration of the oil into hair cuticles. You can also rub a few drops of the oil into the hair ends regularly. Hemp oil will weigh them down and moisturize them. Thanks to this method, they will split and frizz less. The oil applied to the ends perfectly protects them from the effects of high temperature. Hemp oil can also be massaged directly into the scalp or mixed with a scalp conditioner.
