Hot oil treatment+Wash day

Tonight I'm gonna do my first ever hot oil treatment.

Ok its unbelievable right? I should have been incorporating this step for my hair a long time ago.

So I headed off to google to find out exactly how its done. It seems like there is nothing really to it, all you need to do is:

  • get your favorite oil
  • heat it up in the microwave till its warm enough
  • put some in your hands and work through the hair (don't ever put it directly on your hair)
  • put on a plastic cap and wrap a warm towel around your head and let it sit for maybe 20- 45 mins (I like 45 mins better), if you are using heat then I'm guessing you wouldn't need the warm towel just use a hooded dryer

 In my mixture I used EV olive oil, coconut oil and a little shea butter (kinda looks nasty lol)

After I do this I'm going to do a co-wash and then do my weekly deep condition..

oh that reminds me..I just bought some ORS Replenishing Conditioner, it's just the bottled version of the Replenishing Pak I regularly use when I'm in the US. This is what I will use as my deep conditioner tonight.

I also got the VO5 moisture milks that people on youtube seem to love.

I think I'm slowly becoming a product junkie, but I'm sort of still a newbie to this hair stuff and still trying to figure out what my hair don't judge me :D

Lets see how my hot oil treatment goes!

Thanks for reading!

Sounds good! I need to incorporate hot oil treatments in my regimen too.... How'd yours turn out?

I just did a similar thing...decided to pre-heat my EVCO in the microwave and apply as a pre-poo and I swear the results are amazing.  Found your blog from your link at Just Grow Already....subscribed!

it turned out fantastic! The Jamaican hot weather has certainly been drying out my hair and after I did the hot oil treatment my hair was so soft and stayed soft for the whole week!  My hair has never felt this good since I've been home in the heat. You should definitely do it :)
