Hot oil treatments are great for any and all hair types, afro hair, natural black hair, relaxed African American hair, straight hair, curly, long hair, or shot hair. Also called oil rinses, hot oil treatments can strengthen the hair, give it great shine, and create beautiful body and bounce. I personally love them because it’s one way I can see fast result right after I finish the process on my naturally curly hair. This hair therapy has helped me fight over shedding, breakage, as well as dry and brittle hair.
When I first discovered the hot oil cure, I was blown away at how little of an effort I had to put forth to change my overly dehydrated natural hair. My hair needs this especially in the coldest parts of winter and the hottest days of summer. Since I live in Texas, I’m more prone to experience heat or sun damage from those harsh rays.
I know it is time for a hot oil treatment when both my scalp and my hair are acting up. The scalp enjoys theses treatments because it soothes any itchiness, flakes, or dryness. My hair loves it because it coats the hair and locks in the moisture for longer. It also help protects the hair from the craziest weather regardless if it is windy, sunny, or frigidly cold. You can mix the oils that you choose.

I personally enjoy coconut oil, olive oil, and jojoba oil the best for my hair therapy sessions. These oils have benefited my black hair the most and I have used them for years.Hot oil treatments can help hair thicken and edges grow in faster!
•1 tablespoon of 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
•1 tablespoon of 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
•1 tablespoon of 100% Pure Jojoba Oil
I mixed the oils together in a microwavable friendly container. It can be a bowl, cup, or condiments saucer. I then put them in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds, and they are ready. Adjust the heating time to the temperate of the oil that you desire. However make sure you do not over heat these oils as they can burn skin or cause irritation if applied to hair or scalp at too high of a temperature.
I either pour the oils into a applicator bottle or I simple just use my fingers.
With either method I focus first on applying the warm oil to my scalp then coat the hair. I massage my scalp and smooth down my hair for about 3-5 minutes. I then place a plastic shower cap or plastic bag over my hair. Wrap a towel around the cap and then sit with the mixture on my hair for about 10-20 minutes. Lastly I hop in the shower and just wash my hair the normal way and follow it with my usually deep conditioning treatment. When it’s time to style my hair, I always immediately see a difference! Love the hot oil treatments!
