Hair is one part of your body that is continuously exposed to outside elements. Sun, smoke, pollution, cold, heat and styling products all take their toll on the hair’s condition. Even the state inside your body affects your hair. Stress, poor nutrition and dehydration all play a role in hair health.

 

Overuse of heating elements such as hair dryers, curling irons or straighteners can rob the hair of necessary moisture and oils, leaving it dry and prone to breakage.

 

If your hair is dry, the hair shaft becomes weak and damaged. This results in breaking and splitting of the hair. Not only does this make the hair appear frizzy and unhealthy, it also makes it seem as if it is just not growing, since the ends keep breaking off.

 

One way to combat all of these negative influences on the health of your hair is with homemade hot oil treatment. Homemade hot oil treatment conditions the hair shaft, restoring strength to it.

 

Many people believe they need to go to a salon for a good hot oil treatment. While salon treatments can be relaxing and beneficial, they use the same oils you can buy yourself at a beauty supply store, or that you have right in your kitchen cabinets.

 

Actually, there is no need to spend a lot of money at the spa or the salon, because hot oil treatment can be performed at home with ingredients and oils that are probably already in your cupboard. Homemade hot oil treatment is more economical and allows people to tailor oil needs to their particular hair type.

 

A mixture of oils can be used to create the perfect balance and consistency of oil, depending on your hair care needs. There are various hot oil kits available for purchase with step-by-step instructions for application that can help reduce salon costs.

 

When you apply a homemade hot oil treatment, a few things happen. Usually, before applying, the hair is still damp from being freshly washed. When the hot oil treatment is applied, the oil covers the hair shaft and seals the moisture into the shaft. The oil helps the outside of the hair shaft by coating the split ends and breaking points, giving the appearance of smooth, healthy hair. The oil not only conditions the hair, it detangles it as well, preventing further breakage from brushing and pulling the hair.

 

Applying hot oil treatment also benefits hair in the long term, not just temporarily. When applying the oil, massaging the scalp gently with the fingertips promotes circulation and blood flow to the scalp. This encourages the production of the scalp’s natural oils, which are the ideal oils for keeping the hair healthy.

 

If you have dry hair, a hot oil treatment can be exactly what your hair needs to bring it back to life, adding shine and moisture and making your hair simply look healthier overall. Whether your hair is naturally dry or has been made dry from too frequent blow-dries and damage from curling and straightening irons, hot oil treatments are a fast and easy solution.

 

Hot oil treatment prevents breakage, which is common among people with coarse hair textures. The need to moisturize the hair follicle with extra oil is born out of a desire to promote continued growth and sheen while maintaining the integrity of the hair follicle.

 

Hot oil allows for necessary oils to be deposited back into the hair to prevent over-drying, which contributes to breakage. Hot oil treatments also create extra body and shine, which can be beneficial for black hair because it is prone to becoming brittle or dull due to its coarse texture.

 

Depending on how dry and damaged your hair is, you should do a hot oil treatment once or twice a week. If your hair is really damaged I would advise starting with twice a week and slowly working down to just once.

 

If your hair is only mildly dry and damaged, then one hot oil treatment a week should be enough to get your hair looking and feeling healthy again. Healthy hair can benefit from biweekly hot oil treatments. There is no risk of hair damage when it comes to getting hot oil treatment, so it can be performed as often as needed.

 

Before applying the hot oil treatment to your hair, the oil should be warmed. Store-bought treatments will come with directions that should be closely followed and usually require that the oil package be heated in a cup of hot water for one to two minutes. The warmed oil should be applied to wet hair and massaged into the scalp. After this, hair can be rinsed and shampooed as usual.

 

Frankly, you can use just about any oil you desire for your homemade hot oil treatment for hair. If you want to go easy on yourself, just heat up a little olive oil and slather it on your hair. That’ll do just fine.

 

Castor oil is also commonly used and is quite beneficial for black hair because of its thick consistency. For individuals with particularly curly types of hair, castor oil can help to loosen curls and create greater wave and texture.

 

There are numerous other types of oils that can be used besides castor oil. Olive oil is quite popular because of its silky and smooth texture. Many people use the olive oil from their kitchen supply and heat it to achieve desired results. Jojoba oil is a favorite among some because it helps correct dry scalp and prevent dandruff.

 

Coconut oil is beneficial as a daily moisturizer and can be used on its own or along with other oils. It is best for reducing frizz and the appearance of damage. You can use a small amount of coconut oil daily on relaxed hair.

 

Emu oil is used to help with hair loss or for individuals who have hair thinning (perhaps due to hair extensions, weaves or wig use). It is a favorite among hair care professionals and is available in black hair care specialty shops.

 

Other options include avocado, jojoba, castor, soybean and sweet almond oils. When making your own treatment, you can mix the oils according to your preference; there is no need to use only one kind of oil.

 

To make a homemade hot oil treatment, add 1/2 cup of oils in any combination to a small saucepan. Warm the oil on low heat, being careful that you do not allow it to boil. While the oil is warming, you can add optional ingredients such as rosemary oil (which adds shine) or tea tree oil (fights dandruff) to boost the treatment’s effectiveness.

 

The steps for completing the homemade hot oil treatment are very easy. Simply combine all the needed ingredients into a measuring cup and mix them well. Make sure you use a cup that is microwave safe because now you are going to heat the mixture up for 20-25 seconds. You want it to be warm but not too hot.

 

The easiest way to apply the oil is to bring it right into the shower. Get your hair wet. You want your hair to be damp but not soaking. Now apply the mixture evenly to your hair.

 

If your ends are especially dry make sure they are nicely covered in the oil. Then using a wide toothed comb, comb the oil through your hair and wrap a hot towel around your head. Leave the towel on your head for 20 minutes.

 

After the 20 minutes is up, simply rinse out the oil and shampoo your hair. Make sure everything is rinsed out really well and you don’t need to bother using conditioner since the hot oil does the same job for you.

 

Once your hair has returned to its glorious healthy self, remember to keep doing hot oil treatments from time to time to prevent it from becoming dry and damaged all over again.
