If you want to go beyond the simple Ayurvedic massage and can spend around 30 minutes, then a highly effective massage for your hair is Shiro Pichu.
Shiro Pichu is an Ayurvedic head massage that involves soaking your head region with a specialized Ayurvedic oil, such as Keranya hair oil', using a cotton cloth or pad.
Take a cotton ball and press it gently to make it flat and rectangular.
Fold a length of gauze or muslin cloth (around 6-8 cm wide and 30 cm long) around the cotton wool until it is folded into a small square little smaller than the palm of your hand, creating a cotton pad.
Pour some hot water into the bowl and place a small bottle of Ayurvedic oil into the water to warm.
When the oil starts to feel warm but is not too hot, soak the cotton pad with oil until it becomes like a sponge (if you squeeze it the oil spills out) and place it on the top of your head. If you were to draw a line from ear to ear over the top of your head, it should be placed exactly mid-way along this line.
Sit upright in a cosy place for 10-15 minutes and either put on some quiet, relaxing music or simply bring your attention to your breath.
Remove the cotton pad and gently massage any excess oil into your scalp using your fingertips.
If you are doing this procedure before going to bed, place the towel on your pillow to avoid staining it with oil and ensure your head does not get cold or exposed to any breeze during the night.Since Shiro Pichu allows for the oil to be in contact with the head for a longer time, it results in greater absorption of oil by the scalp and hair root. Besides making your hair look more luxurious, Shiro Pichu makes you feel more relaxed and connected with yourself.
So, a great time for this massage would be in the morning before you begin your daily chores or at night after you wind up your day and want to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
