Some of the more natural oils that are popular for hot oil treatments are olive oil, jasmine oil, coconut oil, and jojoba oil.
Hot oil treatment is used to give hair moisture as it gives the look of conditioned hair without having to condition every day.
A hot oil hair treatment, homemade or store-bought, can be an inexpensive luxury with a variety of benefits.
Hot oil treatments come in two varieties, oil that is heated in either the microwave or stove top, or a package that is immersed in hot water. Either variety will grant the same end results – conditioned hair.
Homemade oil treatments can be made with a mixture of common household oils, such as soybean oil or olive oil, and even the use of mayonnaise. Heat the mixture in the microwave or stove top, apply and massage into hair and scalp, leave on for ten to fifteen minutes for full penetration and rinse.
All oil treatments need to be used with caution as any hot mixture can result in surface or first degree burns. It is always a good idea to test the temperature of the oil on the inside of your wrist before applying to your scalp.
So take a few moments and treat yourself, those around you and especially your locks, to a luxurious hot oil treatment.
