Best DIY Hot Oil Treatment for Natural Hair


Hey curlfriends and welcome back! Today I’m going to show you guys how to use
a hot oil treatment to combat thinning edges, split ends as well as dry hair. I recently showed you guys my winter wash
day routine. Whenever I do my hot oil treatments, I just
go ahead and shampoo my hair then I move into my hot oil treatment. I’m using this applicator bottle to make the
application process a lot more easier. I can get to my scalp better with the nozzle. The nozzle makes this a nice, seamless application
process. The first technique that I’m going to show
you guys is for thinning edges. Don’t be alarmed if you have thinning edges,
it is a common natural hair problem. I’m going to show you guys today how you can
combat that. I’m starting off on shampooed hair. My hair is a bit damp. You want to use an old t-shirt for this hot
oil treatment. This oil will stain. I’m focusing the oil on my hairline itself. I’m just going to apply the oil along my hairline. I’m going to use the fingertips to go ahead
and massage this oil in. You want to take your time and make sure that
you’re covering your entire hairline and rubbing this in very nice and gentle. Just make sure that you’re getting into that
scalp. Massaging the scalp will allow the blood flow
to flow much more easier and it will allow the oil to soak in. The next technique that we’re going to do
is for dry scalp or psoriasis, any of you guys that suffer with dry scalp. I’m just going to split my hair into 4 separate
sections just so that I can get through the thickness of my hair more easier. I’m just clipping those away and I’m going
to start with the left section. I’m just going through with horizontal parts,
medium sized parts. I just want to make sure that I’m getting
as much oil on my scalp itself as possible. I’m just splitting it into small sections,
rubbing that oil through. I’ll go back in with my fingertips to distribute
the oil throughout my entire my scalp and make sure the entire section is covered. Then I’ll just twist the hair back up, clip
it away and move on to the next section. A lot of times with dry scalp or flaky scalp;
it’s really just hydration of the scalp, your hair is missing a lot of hydration. This oil will help to loosen up those scabs
and allow them to rinse away whenever you use your shampoo again. Like I said, this is really good for dry scalp,
psoriasis, any kind of dryness of the scalp. You can also use this as a pre-poo. Apply this to your scalp, let it sit for a
little bit, then go in with your shampoo, so that it comes off with the shampoo. This Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Mongogo
and Cotton Tee is really great for unblocking the pores and allowing your scalp to breathe. This is great for scalp treatments! We’re also going to work on these split ends,
if you suffer from split or dry ends. You can apply the oil directly to your ends
and saturate the entire hair running the oil through. After I get the oil on to the hair, I personally
like to twirl the ends just to make sure that everything is fully saturated and that oil
can penetrate those dry ends. Last but not least, dry hair. If you suffer from dry hair, here’s a little
trick. You can use just a basic hot oil treatment. Just put the oil directly onto to the hair. Move it throughout the hair, smooth it down,
just get it throughout the entire hair. Or you can use a mask, which I’ll show you
how to create in a little bit. This Mongongo Oil has a lot of nutrients,
Vitamin E, just a lot of great, exotic properties that’s going to help to condition the hair,
restructure it and hydrate it. This is a great oil for dry hair! Here’s the mask that I was telling you guys
about. You can use any conditioner of your choice. Just apply 1/2 of the conditioner to 1/2 of
the oil to create this mixture. The conditioner itself is going to give this
mixture a nice, thick consistency to lay on top of your hair. There’s your homemade mask. Literally just 2 ingredients. If you’re on a budget and you can’t afford
any of the shampoo’s and conditioners that include oils in them, this is a great way
to DIY it yourself at home. Grabbing a generous amount of our newly constructed
mixture, I’m just going to apply this to my hair. I’m just going to go section by section to
make sure that everything is fully saturated! You guys want to make sure that when you’re
doing anything with these hot oil treatments you want to make sure that you’re using a
really old shirt. You will end up dropping the oil on your clothing. A lot of times the oils do stain so just keep
that in mind. Last but not least, after you finish figuring
out which hot oil treatment you would like to use, you could either use a shower cap
and allow your body heat to create the greenhouse effect and heat up your hair underneath this
cap. You can also opt for a blow dryer attachment
like I did. I leave this on my hair for about 15 minutes
minimum, up to 45 minutes. Then, I’ll just take down my hair and rinse
and wash away this mask. As you guys can see, my hair is super soft
and moisturized. This oil worked absolute wonders on my hair. I love using exotic and pure oils that don’t
have a lot of chemicals in them. I’m just going to go ahead and rinse this
out and proceed with my styling whether I go for a protective style or straighten my
hair. I hope you guys enjoyed this little hot oil
