Using a Hot Oil Treatment

A hot oil treatment is a great way to ensure your locks stay healthy.

1. Dry and damaged hair.

The most obvious time that your hair needs some TLC is when it is seriously dry and damaged. This could be due to a host of issues from hard brushing to tugging at that ponytail. Whatever the hair issue that got you there, you’ll need a solution to help you repair your hair.  Hot oil treatments can work to make your hair moisturized and hydrated. Another alternative is to use a oil treatment like the Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment whose formula can work to smooth out any rough cuticles while providing your locks with some deep nourishment. This is also an awesome way to tame those flyaways, making your hair shiny in an instant.

2. In-between trims.

The hair shaft can split and break in-between regular trims. In our busy life it can be challenging to keep up with the suggested four to six week time slot to get to the salon. In-between that time, revive your locks by getting a weekly hair oil treatment. Ed’s tip: Focus on the ends that might be really dry and even split.

3. If your hair is relaxed or chemically straightened.

Chemically treated and relaxed hair definitely needs some love in the form of a hot oil treatment. A drugstore oil treatment will also offer you similar benefits such as the TRESemmé Botanique Damage Recovery Oil Elixir whose formula combines the power of serum and oil to make your hair shiny and soft. This product can help to provide deep moisture to your locks, making them strong and prevent split ends.


4. If you have color-treated hair

Color treated hair can also get incredibly damaged. We like to do a weekly hot oil treatment on our locks as a way to revive and nourish any damaged strands as well as a way to treat them right in whatever new color you’ve decided to try. Try the S Factor True Lasting Color Hair Oil whose formula works to condition and treat your hair,  which works to make it shiny. Plus, it can also help with frizz and annoying flyaways!

5. If you have curly hair

Those who have curly or wavy hair can also be prone to damaged locks. As a part of your hair care routine, add in a hot oil treatment to that mix to help your hair feel soft, nourished and frizz-free.

An easy way to give your hair some TLC is with a hot oil treatment. These weekly rituals are a fun and easy way to revive your locks!
