Both weekly and daily, we tend to put our hair through a lot. From detangling and washing to applying product and styling, our hair takes on a lot of stress, pulls, tugs and – in some cases – breakage. With all of that in mind, it’s important to do all that you can to keep your hair as healthy as possible and though it may still be a secret to some, hot oil treatments are a great way to do that.
Whether you choose to use an oil from our Natural Growth Oil Blends line or want to utilize our Soft All Over Multi-Purpose Oil, here are six reasons why hot oil treatments are exactly what your hair needs on wash day.
You’ll add moisture to your hair
Retaining moisture can easily be noted as one of the most difficult tasks for anyone in the natural hair community. That doesn’t mean, however, that it’s impossible. And by adding a hot oil treatment into your regimen, you can accomplish that. Administering a hot oil treatment weekly or bi-weekly (depending on your hair) can help you to avoid dryness and therefore prevent breakage.
It will alleviate frizz and split ends.
Regardless of the season, frizzy hair and splitting ends can strike. Although there are plenty of ways to combat both of these daunting results, one major way to do it is by giving your hair regular hot oil treatments. And, it’s done without weighing your hair down. Hot oil treatments can also seal the ends of your hair, which can be the way to prevent typical split ends.
You’ll add the shine your hair deserves.
Regularly washing your hair and adding product to it can cause your mane to become a bit dull. If you start giving your hair hot oil treatments, however, you’ll notice how much healthier it’ll become over time.
It will combat dry scalp and dandruff.
Although certain shampoos can help with dry and flaky scalps, something as simple and inexpensive as a hot oil treatment can help you achieve the same goal. Be sure to apply your treatment prior to your regular wash, massage it in, and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing out and shampooing.
The treatments can help you to minimize styling damage.
Whether you’ve consistently applied heat or find your hair being damaged from over coloring, regularly applying hot oil treatments can help revert the damage. Of course, the damage can only be combated with proper styling care afterwards, but to get the healthy hair party started, hot oil treatments are the way to go.
The blood circulation to your scalp will increase.
Blood circulation to your scalp may not seem like that big of a deal initially, but the process can actually invigorate the growth process for your hair. By giving yourself a hot oil treatment and massaging it into your scalp, you’re stimulating the flow of blood. Who doesn’t love a scalp massage anyway?
