In brief: Massaging

Afterapplication of oil when you massage your scalp, the friction through fingers and heat created thereby cause the hot feeling in addition to dilatation of the blood vessels by the warmth you create by after application and massaging.
The scalp is very rich in blood supply and the massaging of scalp is good for hair strenght by improving over all vascularity if oil is applied in moderation.
