  3. Saturate your hair overnight

    Keep the oil in your hair overnight. Place a towel over your pillow to avoid oil stains.

  4. Apply shampoo before showering

    On the following morning, apply undiluted shampoo to your hair and massage it in. Ensure that every hair is sheathed in shampoo.

  5. Rinse and shampoo again

    Rinse your hair until no shampoo remains, then apply more shampoo to your soaking strands. Rinse with warm water.
