Hair growth through hot oil treatments

Hot oil treatment is one of the best things for natural hair. The treatment has many benefits that can take natural hair from zero to 100.

Hot oil for detangling

If you simply leave your Afro hair in a braid for several days, you have little to do with caring for it. However, when it comes to washing day, you dread opening your braid. A hot oil treatment can be of great help to help with detangling. This involves applying a generous amount of warm oil to the entire hair, from the scalp to the ends. The hair is then covered with a plastic bag or shower cap and tied with a scarf. The exposure time should be 4-5 hours. It's even better if you leave it on overnight. The following day, the combination of oil and moisture makes detangling a breeze.

Hot oil for scalp massages

Scalp massages are great for promoting hair growth because they stimulate blood flow to the follicles and allow the hair to feed on the nutrients. Adding hot oil to massage is far better as oils contain many nutrients. The heat of the oil also opens the pores, which stimulates hair growth.

Hot oil as a rinse

Do you want to revitalize your dry hair? Massage the hot oil onto your scalp and apply it to your hair strands as in the first step. However, you should only use a small amount so that you don't leave the house with oil dripping down. Covering the hair with a plastic bag or using a steamer creates soft and fluffy hair. You should make sure that only oils with nourishing properties such as olive oil are used.

Hot oil for dry scalp

Dry scalp is caused by low oil/sebum levels on the scalp. If you have a dry scalp, a hot oil treatment can help. A dry scalp is different from dandruff, although they can look similar. The latter can worsen if too much oil is applied to the scalp. So you should make sure that you have a dry scalp and no dandruff.

Hot oil for shiny and frizz-free hair

Due to the nature of our hair, type 4 hair often appears dull even when it is not dry. If you want hair to shine, a hot oil treatment will help, especially if applied during the LOC method.

Hot oil for brittle hair

Brittle hair is caused by dryness and hot oil treatments are ideal for strengthening hair. When you use oils like avocado oil, which contains binding proteins, it gives the hair extra strength that can prevent hair from breaking.

There are many oils that can be used for hot oil treatments, however we recommend using penetrating and nutrient rich oils for the best results.

To be on the safe side, you should only make the oil hot enough that you can still touch it and not burn yourself.
