Steps to a successful hot oil treatment:

  1. Dampen hair from roots to end with water.
  2. Pour oil into a yorker cap bottle. 
  3. Place the bottle of oil into your glass of water to warm oil for 5 – 10 minutes (Be sure that water is warm, and not boiling or scolding hot)
  4. Evenly distribute and gently massage oil into your scalp and throughout the length of your hair
  5. Section hair into twists or braids, and secure into place under plastic cap
  6. Wrap hair with a warm towel or sit under a hooded dryer for at least 30 minutes. 
  7. Lightly rinse excess oil from hair before styling.

Fun Facts:

  • Hot oil treatments work better on clean hair vs. old hair.
  • Warm oil helps the cuticle layer of the hair strands to expand and help nutrients penetrate under the cuticle layer.
  • Carrier Oils like Coconut Oil work by penetrating through the hair shaft and moisturizing hair quickly vs Essential Oils like Tea Tree Oil, which are more nutrient-rich and focus on strengthening strands.
