Hot oil treatments have a host of benefits. For starters, it not only replenishes and soothes hair, but is rich in moisture leaving you with shiny, lustrous tresses after use. Read on for a deep dive into the benefits of using a hot oil treatment for happy, healthy, nourished hair.
1. Moisturizes Hair
Natural hair is prone to dryness and breakage. All it needs is lots and lots of moisture! BHH strongly recommends that you go in for a hot oil treatment at least once in two weeks. Since it is very difficult for natural oils to travel from the scalp to the tips when one has naturally curly hair, it is even more important to do a hot oil treatment.
2. Good for the scalp
A dry scalp is one thing a lot of naturalistas struggle with. The benefits of a hot oil treatment for a dry and itchy scalp are immense. It increases blood flow and helps boost hair growth. The oil soothes the itchiness and also keeps the dandruff at bay.
3. Helps Prevent Spilt Ends
Split ends too can be a naturalista’s worst nightmare. They are simply a sign of brittle hair. How does hot oil help this problem? By simply sealing the ends of your hair, preventing them from drying up and splitting and forming a protective layer around the hair shaft.
4. Reduces Frizz
Oh hey and who loves frizz?! One of the key reasons for breakage is frizzy hair and hot oil treatments can reduce the amount of frizz without really weighing your hair down.
