Hands up if you love a good hot oil treatment, because we sure do! Suffering from dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, moisture loss, a sensitive flaky scalp, frizziness and a build up of products is your bodies way of telling you that your scalp is feeling irritated, itchy, dry and in need of some good TLC.
A good oil treatment helps to stimulate blood flow and help promote healthy hair growth, but it is also a great way to moisturise your curls and scalp too.

Different Ways To Apply A Hot Oil Treatment
A gentle scalp massage: Place your chosen oil in a bowl of hot water, allow the oil to naturally and evenly heat up. Once warm, part hair and place the oil on your scalp and gently massage using the pads of your fingers or a scalp massaging brush. This will help stimulate the hair follicules for acheiving hair growth. Cover hair with a plastic cap and let sit for 30 minutes or however long you'd like.
Moisturise: Seal your cuticles while you LOC (leave-in, oil, cream) or LCO (Leave-in, cream, oil). This will help lock in the moisture.
Out door weather: Oil can also be a great to protect your tresses while in the sun or in the water. Apply a generous amount of oil to strands to add a layer of protection while out and about.
