It’s only someone that knows that could tell you how massaging your hair and scalp is a sure fire way of preventing hair follicles from falling off.There are two ways of using essential oils for this purpose. You could just massage castor oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, jojoba oil, olive oil or almond oil into your hair and scalp, leave it overnight and then wash off in the morning with mild shampoo.

To take advantage of these benefits, crush about ten hibiscus flowers and leaves until it becomes a paste. Heat the paste adding a cup of coconut oil (or any other essential oil) for a few minutes. Leave it to cool then massage the oil into your scalp and hair. Leave it for about half an hour then wash off with a shampoo. Do this 2 to 3 times a week and soon you’ll be testifying about the efficacy of this beautiful plant. You can store the remaining oil in a bottle for future use.
