The Benefits of Hot Oil Treatments

Who else loves a good hot oil treatment, because I sure do. Hot oil treatments are great for stimulating blood flow, as well as helping our hair to grow.

Whether you are suffering from dry scalp, dandruff, moisture loss or frizz, there are many different oils that serve different purposes, and a hot oil treatment can help with just that. 

Dandruff and Dry Scalp

Many naturalistas struggle with dry scalp and dandruff which can become very itchy and sometimes unbearable. Hot oil treatments are great for soothing dry scalps and keeping dandruff at bay. Our African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil is a multi-tasking hair saviour. Not only can it be used as an overnight hot oil treatment, but can be used as a pre-poo treatment, a frizz taming serum and also works brilliantly as a defence against damages caused by the sun, sea and chlorinated water. Along with dandruff and dry scalp, hot oil treatments also help to stimulate blood flow to your scalp. A nice scalp massage will help increase blood circulation and in turn promote hair growth.

Moisture

Hot oil treatments are amazing at providing moisture to dry hair. The warm oil helps to penetrate the hair strands and moisturise them. Natural hair can tend to be dry, so any type of moisturising hot oil treatment can help this, bringing back moisture and preventing dryness which can also lead to breakage.

Frizz

Hot oil treatments can help prevent frizz too. It also helps to seal the ends of your hair strands which in turn prevents split ends. After doing hot oil treatments, over time you will begin to see the changes in your hair. Your hair will look and feel healthier and more shiny.

 

How To Apply a Hot Oil Treatment

Instantly Add Shine and Reduce Frizz: Apply a few drops, and warm oil between your palms and apply unto clean wet or dry hair to seal ends and add shine. Use on finished style to add shine and softness.

Therapeutic Scalp Massage: To absorb all the active benefits in the oil, apply oil starting from the scalp (take a deep breath while breathing in the therapeutic aroma, that will calm your nerves, and relieve stress) massage into hair/scalp to stimulate the hair follicles. Cover hair with plastic cap. Let sit for 30 minutes or overnight.

Bonus Tips: Add a few drops to your favourite shampoo or deep conditioner to impart extra softness, moisture, and promote healthier hair. Apply to wet or even dry hair to boost moisture in second, third, and fourth-day hair to revive curls, coils, and waves.

Sun / Sea / Water Protection: Generously apply oil to hair to coat the hair shaft. Twist hair up in individual sections and you are good to go!

 

Naturally yours,
Kaisha

Mini kit

I really love the leavein. My hair feels so soft but i still have the volume. I love the mist. I love the oil. I am really in love with the smell of all products. I also recieved a mini butter. The first time i used it my hair looks very good. Second and third time it didnt. Maybe i buy it because the product gives a lot of volume and soft hair. I like that combo! Maybe i need to use less or a different way. I also like it because i dont need a gel on top.
The clay i only use it one time en the shampoo i didnt use yet. But so far i like the clay to.

The packaging is soooo cute.

I used this for my daughter's naturally curly hair, but also on my hair, which was chemically processed but now going back to my natural state. The product was immediately moisturising and hydrating, but without leaving a residue in the hair. Works well to protect the hair from heat styling as well, and smells wonderful.

So far so good. Used these products when i had my first curly cut. Purchased the travel bag to see if i liked them and i will be buying the full range when payday comes around. Love how easy the leave in conditioner is for my busy life.
