• Do heat the oil slightly be­fore ap­pli­ca­tion. When oils are warmed be­fore ap­ply­ing on the hair and scalp, they pro­vide bet­ter con­di­tion­ing, not to men­tion, re­lax­ation. • Make sure you fol­low up a hot oil treat­ment with a hot towel wrap. To do this, soak a towel in hot wa­ter, squeeze it out and then wrap it on the head for a few min­utes. This al­lows for bet­ter ab­sorp­tion of the oils into the hair and scalp. You can also try steaming the hair with a hand­held steamer to achieve this.

• Turn down the lights dur­ing your hot oil treat­ment to enjoy op­ti­mum ben­e­fits of this nour­ish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. This en­sures the mind, body and soul are com­pletely at ease and you can truly un­wind. Af­ter all, bet­ter moods and hap­pier dis­po­si­tions are known to pro­mote health­ier hair. • Once done, try to leave the oil in the hair for a few hours for bet­ter ab­sorp­tion. If pos­si­ble, leave it in overnight, but no longer than 24 hours, as oily hair tends to at­tract dirt and dust from the air. Avoid us­ing a strong sham­poo to rinse the oil off as you will want to do at least two rounds of wash­ing for oils like cas­tor or co­conut. Us­ing a strong sham­poo twice in a row can strip the hair of its nat­u­ral oils and will coun­ter­act any pos­i­tive ef­fect your oil treat­ment was meant to have in the first place.
