Homemade Oil Treatment for Soft and Shiny Hair: Do It Yourself

This is a tried and tested recipe for beautiful, shiny, and soft hair!  Yes, my very own recipe using pure oils! I have been using this since last 4 months and trust me guys I am the live example of it working amazingly *preen*

Things you will need:

  • Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Almond Oil – 1 tbsp.
  • Rosemary Essential Oil – 7-8 drops.
  • Tea Tree essential Oil: 3-4 drops (optional).
  • Argan oil – ½ tsp to 1 tsp (too expensive, so I use it sparingly :P)
  • Grapeseed Oil – 1 tsp.
  • Evening Primrose oil – 1 tsp.

Like earlier, I will first give you all the benefits of each and every ingredient used.  (So what If I was away, I am still the same 😛 )


Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is like nature’s treat for your tresses! Especially when you use the pure virgin version, you are doing nothing but good to your mane.

  • Coconut oil stimulates hair growth as it goes deep into its follicles.
  • Coconut oil also fights dandruff leaving you with a healthy scalp.
  • Moisturizes dry hair.
  • Adds luster, shine and softness to the hair.
  • Coconut oil also slows down hair loss.

Rosemary Essential Oil:

  • Helps in premature graying of hair.
  • Imparts shine to hair.
  • Acts like a dose for dull hair.

Tea Tree Essential Oil:

  • Amazing for curing dandruff.
  • High on anti-bacterial effect, hence leads to clean scalp!

Argan Oil:

The hero of beauty industry! So much rave about this oil, it’s like Argan-Argan everywhere!

This oil is indeed a hero ingredient.

  • It moisturizes and conditions hair.
  • Helps in healing split ends as it is rich in Omega 3 and 9 fatty acids.
  • Makes hair soft and bouncy.
  • Great for frizzy hair as it controls fly aways.
  • Good for damaged and chemically treated hair.

Grapeseed Oil:

  • It strengthens hair.
  • It is hypoallergenic, so even sensitive scalps can benefit from this oil.
  • Great for dandruff.
  • Helps to alleviate dry scalp.

Pure Almond Oil:

  • Adds luster to hair.
  • Strengthens hair.
  • Helps in hair growth.
  • Great for split ends.

Evening Primrose Oils:

  • It is rich in essential fatty acids hence helps in nourishing hair and scalp.
  • A great pick for thinning hair.


1. In a bowl, pour some coconut and almond oil and heat it. Do not heat it till boiling temperature, just warm it a bit.


2. Now, add 7-8 drops of rosemary oil and 3-4 drops of tea tree oil (if you are using).


(Note: If you have dandruff issue, you can add a few more drops of tea tree oil).

3.  Now, add Grapeseed, Argan and Evening primrose oil.

How To Use:

Massage the oil in your scalp and cover each and every strand properly. Leave it on for at least an hour (longer the duration, the better).  You can also massage the leftover oil on your skin 😛 Yes, really I do that! It’s good for your skin too! *haan ji*


Important Tip: Tie your hair in a bun and cover it with a shower cap. This will help your hair to drink up the oils better.  Once you feel your hair has soaked all the goodness of the oils, shampoo and condition your hair normally. The best thing about this recipe is that all the oils used are easy to wash. I have done a patch test to prove this; look how nicely the oil got absorbed on my hand after a light massage.

Now, hear your hair say “thank you!”

Hope you guys will try this and do let me know the results! Missed you all so much (genuinely) and yes once again, I am back! *happy dance* *happy dance* *happy dance*

See you soon… till then, stay pretty *puchhi* *thankyou*

  5. wow! just yesterday i was planning to buy soulflower’s argan, rosehip and jojoba oils and maybe rosemary too and today i have an immediate recipe to at least use 2 of the oils i’ll be buying!!! things indeed work out magically, no? 😀

    great post!! i need to buy them asap! btw how’s the argan oil when used on its own? i plan to use a drop or two in place of my hair serum post wash/drying..

    1. Hey Sukanya! I’m glad you have a recipe ready now 😀
      Actually I had got Argan to use it the same way you are thinking… though it was good but it didnt give me that much moisture or shine may be coz there were no silicones! and little more i use i’m back for a hair wash so i found it a little tricky but nevertheless its a great buy! 🙂

  6. it was great hearing yo *happy dance* … lemme give a try…!!! n i would love to now if yo hav any remedy for oily n patches n ya black head skin *scared*

    1. *thankyou* Meher 🙂
      Blackheads I think just recently someone has done a cornmeal mask try that 🙂
      Exfoliation would be good for you… try a mixture of baking soda and water but very softly scrub for not more than 30 secs 🙂 and just coz you have oily skin do not skip a moisturizer it is as important for you 🙂

  7. hey vidhi. loved your concept. does this really work..?? am really worried my hair looks so soo bad. soo much of hair fall, less volume, so thin , few strands of grey hair. *waaa* i am really worried in 2 months am getting engaged . *cry* *nababana*

    1. Hey Divya! I’m sure it wouldnt harm your tresses… give it a try! 2 months use it twice a week! Your hair will definitely fall better 😀 and avoid SLS shampoos 🙂

    1. Hey Siddhi ! This oil treatment is perfect for dry frizzy hair 😀
      As a mask you can use a mixture of eggs and honey 🙂

    Please suggest me whether i can combine all the oil together and use them on my hair or if i cant mix all of them together then please suggest me what combination of oil and at what ratio should i use to get maximum benefits to get rid of hair fall and to get growth of new hair.
