How to get Oil out of Hair - Tip from a Massage Therapist

How to wash oil out of your hair after a massage


By Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT

As a a Massage Therapist with training in Ayurvedic Massage in San Diego, I see a lot of clients who benefit from a relaxing scalp massage.

Ayurvedic Massage uses oil to massage the body, which means clients walk out of their massage with relaxed muscles and an oily head of hair. My secret tip for removing oil from hair is to apply their regular shampoo to dry hair before stepping into the shower, lathering and rinsing.


I tried this after a Abhyanga massage and Shirodhara treatment and it was far more effective than trying to shampoo hair after wetting it in the shower.

Shirodhara is an effective treatment for insomnia. Read the study done in California here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3921608/
