hot oilHello Girls,

As I shared in my previous post that I was pampering my hair with the hot oil treatment and which oil should you use according to your hair type. In my today’s post I will be sharing how to take the hot oil treatment and most importantly how to heat up your oil so that the nutrients in them does not get evaporated.

Hot oil treatments are really beneficial for our hair. It helps in retaining back the moisture to the hair strands. If you would say so does the normal oiling but the difference is that the heat of the hot oil actually helps to open the cuticles and thus helps in better penetration and helps in increasing blood circulation and strengthening the roots.

For hot oil treatments you should always heat the oil using the double boiler method or the indirect heat method. Double boiler method is where you heat the oil in slow flame and let it heat a bit by supplying the indirect heat.

Here is how to heat up the oil using double boiler method

Take a saucepan or a bigger container with flat surface and pour about 200 ml of water. Place it on the gas with low flame. Now take a small bowl (I took the steel bowl) and take the oil you need in it and place it onto the saucepan with water in it. Now let the oil heat up little bit. Do not let the oil heat up so much that you see smoke coming out, this would result in the essential nutrients of your oil being lost.

Now take the oil after it is perfectly warm. Take care of your hand try to prevent it for getting hurt. Part your hair in four sections and apply the hair oil to the roots and scalp and massage it slowly with your fingers. Leave it preferably overnight and take the steam with a napkin or towel by dipping it in the warm water. Then shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
