Hot Oil Treatment

Hot Oil Treatment

If you have very dry hair that breaks easily, a hot oil hair treatment is just what your poor tresses need.

What’s special about a hot oil treatment is that the heat opens up the cuticle of your hair and allows moisture to penetrate the hair shaft.

It’s a pretty involved process but it’s so worth it. Your hair will be detangled, soft, and shiny.

Directions:

  • Boil half a bowl of water in a pot. Pour into a big bowl.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine one heaping tablespoon of coconut oil and one tablespoon of avocado oil. Place this into the big bowl of hot water.
  • When the coconut oil has completely melted, test a little on your wrist to see if it’s too hot. If it is, take the small bowl out of the water and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
  • Section your hair into 4-6 parts, depending on how long your hair is, and apply the oil from scalp to tip. You can use a brush or comb to help work the oil evenly through your hair.
  • Wrap a warm damp towel (you can chuck a damp towel in the microwave for 30-40 seconds) around your head for 20-30 minutes. Then wash with shampoo and conditioner as per usual.

Tip: Did you know? Coconut oil softens hair while avocado oil is incredibly moisturizing for frizzy hair.
