I usually will flip my hair over so basically tilt forward and let my hair fall over my face and first sort of shake my head from side to side and back to front. Then while my hair is still forward i use my finger tips to gently massage my scalp basically just softly touching my roots in a circular motion.

The head tilting thing really helps. When I massage my scalp I am be gentle and don't go too crazy because otherwise it results in frizzy roots.

Also when I apply my Leave-in I do not really saturate my roots because that just makes them heavy I am light handed with it and the same goes for applying my sealing oil. The length of my hair is where I put a little more of both.
