Back in January I made the decision to incorporate hot oil treatments into my regimen and it’s done my hair a world of good. Every wash day I’ve been doing hot oil treatments with primarily grapeseed oil or Hairveda Vatika Frosting (coconut oil infused with lemon, henna, and amla). I heat up the oil in the microwave, dampen my hair with warm water, and then apply the oil to the length of my hair first (focusing on the ends) and then my scalp. I leave on the oil for anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
I’m positively in love with grapeseed oil. Grapeseed oil contains ceramides and my hair has been reaping the benefits of smoother cuticles. My scalp hasn’t felt dry or itchy and I’ve noticed less hair fall. My split ends have also decreased. When using the Vatika Frosting, I pre-poo overnight and then warm up a bit in the morning and apply to the ends of my hair and my scalp. I wake up to softened new growth and less hair fall when washing. Overall, the health of my hair has improved. More moisture retention, less breakage.
I’m looking to purchase hempseed oil sometime in the near future to add another oil with ceramides to my stash.
Have you incorporated hot oil treatments in your regimen? Like it? Love it?
