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,

Hair Butter rocks! Because we are worth it.

My hair has been waiting for this product. Having low porosity hair and oils were not working for me. If my hair could talk it would say thank you, I use the hair butter with the African citrus oil, which my hair adores. My hair smells gorgeous every day. I cannot thank Flora and Curl enough for this wonderful product.

Beautiful

I’m currently locking my hair and use the oil on my roots. The dispenser allows me to use neatly on my scalp. Smell is gorgeous & in combination with my hair butter makes my twists/dreadlocks glisten.

Love the product but not the size

This item is almost perfect. It’s moisturizing and smells wonderful! I rarely find natural hair products that smell like flowers so this was a bonus! It’s slightly oily which is great for my low porosity hair. However, the size is just not working for me. I got the 4.2 oz but even then it was just kind of small, even though a little goes a long way with this product. Wish there was a value size.
