The Hair Up There: Home Grown Naturals of CT Hot Oil Treatment

20 Mar


Rosemary Honey Lavender Hot oil treatment:

Rosemary oil Lavender oil Safflower oil Castor oil Jojoba oil Safflower oil Avocado oil Olive oil Honey
I mix these in equal parts in an applicator bottle and warm it and apply it to damp hair. Then I put on a plastic cap and sit under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes. I wrap a towel around my head with the plastic cap on to retain the heat.  When I am ready to wash I do so with a moisturizing shampoo free of sulfates.

I do this once per week on wash days.  I concentrate the products on the ends first and then I cover the rest of my strands.

How to warm:  I boil hot water and put it in a ceramic mug and then I sit the oil treatment in the cup for a few minutes.  The oil treatment must be warm to work.  

Benefits, little to no shedding, no breakage, moisture, and you will also see an immediate difference with your hair after the first application.

— Elif Batuman
