How To Do a Simple, At-Home Hot Oil Treatment


As the weather gets colder (and ends get drier and crunchier), it’s great to bust out the oils for a hot oil treatment. Treatments with penetrating oils are great for infusing deep moisture and strength, while treatments with coating oils add a layer of protection and shine.

    This tutorial is nice. I like to make mine with coconut oil (penetrating), jojoba oil, castor oil, and olive oil. It’s oily heaven for my hair. :)

    I did one with castor oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and Crisco….my hair was SHINY :) and it detangled so easily. The knots just slid out.

      • Stephanie Miller

      i knowww and now she has a beautiful baby too! love her…
      i noticed awhile ago that her hair now looks so much more healthier and lush with her simpler regimen (Flax seed, mud wash, butters.,etc) than it did back then.


    Uh no mention of adding honey? Seriously honey and olive oil is the best hot oil treatment ever. You can make it less messy by mixing it with some of your favorite thick deep conditioner( I like Neutrogena Triple moisture hair mask). Been using this combo for years. So so good to moisturize your hair. The recipe is 1 Tablespoon honey to 2 Tablespoon honey.

      The OPERATIVE word here is OIL, yes honey is amazing for the hair but its a hot oil treatment which means only oils will be used. But honey is excellent for deep conditioners

    • Tee

      Can you use any type of honey or does it have to be raw? Does it make the hair sticky?


    I mean 1 tablespoon of honey to 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Lisa

    castor oil is drying so I would caution against this , and honey produces peroxide when it comes in contact with water, which will lighten your hair a little, but it is also a humectant ,olive oil and jojoba and almond are very good . I use a lot of different oils for different things, like I have a mixture I use for oil cleansing my face and another mixture I use for a face & body oil ;)

  • ozoemeladivine

    good job.make your hair silky and shinny.but how do i mix these honey and olive oil must it be hot?

  • I did a hot oil treatment and it felt good! but it’s nothing I can do about the oil leaking on my face and neck lol. I use a mix of castor oil and coconut oil on my scalp and deep conditioner on my ends. Keep it on for an hour then rinse. Before all that use a clarifying shampoo so all the oil can seep in and nourish my scalp directly.

      I mix my oils with conditioner because it makes it a little less runny when I sit user the heat cap.

  • Whyy people still use to read news papers when in this technological
