Natural Hot Oil Hair Treatment

Every so often, hair needs a little extra TLC with an intensive treatment. Our hair is constantly being dried out and damaged by the elements – the wind, sun, salt water – as well as air con, heaters, styling tools and hair dryers. This treatment combines coconut, olive oil and honey which are all great restorative and deeply hydrating ingredients for the hair; to leave it soft, silky and with a renewed health.

What You Will Need

Step by Step

1. Add coconut oil, olive oil, and raw honey in a microwave safe bowl, adding a few drops of Essential Oils of your choice. If you have particularly long hair you may need to add extra coconut oil to the recipe to ensure you get a good coverage.

2. Microwave on High for 10 seconds or until warm enough to touch comfortably.

3. Moving to the bathroom, brush all knots from hair before applying treatment.

4. Starting at the scalp, begin massaging the oil into your hair and follow by applying it to the lengths. Spend a few moments massaging the oil well into your scalp and hair.

5. Wrap hair in a shower cap or towel, and leave for 30 minutes to let the oils penetrate the hair shaft.

6. Follow with a gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner.
