Never heard of hot oil treatments? Well, hot oil treatments are one of the many methods used to repair damaged hair and to encourage hair growth. Although, there is so much more to haircare to know if you want to achieve the best results. We discuss the many ways a hot oil treatment can help you breathe life into your hair and sustain its health!

Prevents Split Ends

It can be hard to grow out your hair when you have split ends that need to be treated and trimmed. Hot oil treatments are a great way to keep your hair from ending up in so many split ends. This is because they work by sealing the ends of your hair, in turn, they cannot be easily damaged. 

Moisturizes Dry and Damaged Hair 

All hair types can develop dry and brittle hair, but those with thick, curly hair will find it more difficult to keep their hair moisturized. Applying hot oils to your hair is one of the many ways to balance moisture. In order for hot oil treatments to be effective, it is recommended to have them done every two weeks to make sure your hair is getting the moisture it needs. 

Helps Treat Dry Scalp and Dandruff

This is a major issue amongst those who don their natural hair on a daily basis. Doing a hot oil treatment prior to washing your hair can help prevent dandruff almost immediately. It is important to look for an oil treatment that is infused with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to soothe an itchy scalp and prevent it from worsening. 

Encourages Blood Circulation to the Scalp

Blood circulation is critical for healthy hair, sebaceous glands, and a healthy scalp, altogether. Sebaceous glands are usually attached to hair follicles and produce sebum, which is meant to moisturize the surface of the skin. The more blood that circulates in your scalp, the more sebum is produced, which is promotes a healthy scalp and healthy hair! 

Adds Shine and Strengthens Hair

Does your hair ever feel or look dull and flat? Yet again, this is where hot oil treatments can help. With enough time and patience, you will start to notice changes in your hair due to these treatments. Your hair will look and feel much healthier and will shine more. Using oils treatments, hot or not, is the key to maintaining shiny hair!

Keeps Frizz at Bay 

Frizz is often caused by a lack of moisture in your hair. If your hair is constantly frizzy, this is your hair crying out for much-needed moisture. To make sure your hair is getting the treatment it deserves, get a hot oil treatment done as soon as possible. Hot-oil treatments are guaranteed to treat frizziness. 

Combats Aggressors 

There are many things that can aggravate your hair and cause it to become dry and brittle, such as surfactants. This is normal because our hair comes into contact with surfactants on a daily basis. Applying oil can help prevent the penetration and irritation that aggressive substances can cause. Hot oils create a gap between your stands and the surfactants, acting as a layer of protection. 

Minimizes Loss of Protein and Calcium 

Each of your hair strands is made up of a vital protein called keratin. As you age, your body develops less and less protein and calcium, which can affect how much and how fast your hair grows. By regularly using natural oils, you won’t have to worry about this! Oils help nourish your scalp by absorbing protein and calcium to curb hair loss and strengthen hair roots. 

Delays Hair Greying 

In addition to hair loss, hot oil treatments are a great way to keep your hair from aging and greying. As you age, hair is more susceptible to losing its strength. With adequate nourishment and blood flow to the scalp and the hair follicles, you encourage your body to reactivate melanin production. This means you are more likely to keep your natural hair color for a good while before it starts to grey!

Stimulates Hair Growth 

For anyone who is all about hair care, hair growth is one of the biggest goals. Once again, this is where blood circulation is important. And, of course, using oils to penetrate the nerves beneath your scalp will speed up the rate at which your hair grows. Oils turn dormant follicles into active ones, meaning more hair will grow and create more volume.
