Whenever he wanted to grease his head, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) would take some oil in the palm of his left hand and apply a little of it to his brows, then to this eyes and the rest to his head. In the like manner when he would apply oil to his beard, he would do so first to his eye-brows then eye-lashes and then to the beard. [Zadul Ma’ad]

Hazrat Anas (Razi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) often greased his head and combed his beard and he often wore head veil (cover) which due to excessive use of oil looked like a piece of cloth of an oil seller. [Shamail-e-Tirmizi, Zadul Ma’ad]

Whenever he greased his beard, he would begin with the portion attached to the neck (throat). When he would apply oil to his head, he would begin from the side of forehead (forelocks). [Zadul Ma’ad]
