Warm 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of ghee in your hands or over a flame. To apply ghee to your hair, you’ll need to warm it up, just like you would with coconut oil. Scoop out 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of ghee and warm it for a few seconds in a pan over low heat to soften it. You can also rub it between your hands to soften it or warm it up for 10 seconds in the microwave.
Massage the mixture into your hair to moisturize and detangle it. Use your fingers to work the softened ghee through your hair. Give special attention to the ends of your hair, which are most likely to be dry and damaged. Ghee is especially rich in vitamin E. This vitamin may help balance the antioxidant levels in your hair and scalp to promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Rub a little ghee into your scalp if you’re prone to dryness. If your scalp is dry and flaky, you can also massage the ghee directly into your scalp to give it a boost of moisture. The act of massaging your scalp may also improve blood circulation and promote the growth of thick, healthy hair. However, avoid rubbing the ghee directly into your scalp if you’re prone to oiliness and breakouts.
Leave the ghee on your hair for 15-30 minutes. Once you massage the ghee into your hair, let it sit for a while. This will give the nutrient-rich oil a chance to penetrate your hair shaft and lock in moisture. For a deep-conditioning treatment, put a scarf or shower-cap over your hair and let the ghee sit on your strands overnight.
Shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly to remove the ghee. After you’ve let the ghee sit on your hair for the desired time, jump into the shower and give your hair a quick wash with a mild shampoo. Make sure to cleanse your hair thoroughly so there’s no greasy buildup.
If you don’t wash the oil out thoroughly, it may weigh your hair down or make it look greasy. Leaving oils on your scalp can also clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Wash the skin on your neck, back, face, and shoulders to get rid of any oily residue there. You can also tuck your hair into a shower cap or pin it up while the ghee is on your hair to protect your skin.
Try mixing ghee with honey, egg, or coconut oil for added benefits. You don’t have to use ghee by itself. To get even more beneficial nutrients in your hair, try mixing it with other ingredients. For example, you can combine it with a spoonful of:
Honey. Honey is has natural anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, so it may help fight irritation and flaking on your scalp. Massage your scalp with a soothing ghee and honey mixture if you’re dandruff-prone.
Coconut oil. This oil is especially beneficial for your hair, since it penetrates into the hair shaft better than most oils and butters. It helps prevent the loss of proteins during washing. Mix it with ghee for extra soft and luxurious hair.
