Hair Slugging or oiling is a treatment to make shiny hair which has been a traditional practice revived in recent years with the increase in natural remedies. It is believed that massaging deep conditioning oil into your scalp can help increase blood circulation in the scalp and hair follicles, thus strengthening the hair and making it grow faster and more robust. This can also help with issues like dandruff and scalp psoriasis. There are many different types of oils that you can use. Just make sure to choose an oil that is compatible with the needs of your hair. If your hair needs good nourishment from oils and hydration to eliminate frizziness, slugging is all you need!

Hair slugging is a great way to keep your hair healthy and strong. It can also help to prevent premature hair loss, which is a common issue for women.

One of the main benefits of using hair oil is that it can help to prevent damage caused by heat, humidity, and other environmental factors.
