Hot oil massage is truly miraculous when one is suffering from dry damaged hair, split ends and rough hair with damage. Hot oils seep into the scalp and nourished the hair from roots to tips. Hot oil massage and treatment also make the rough hair manageable and keeps the frizzy hair in check. While commercial hair-care products contain enriching ingredients that keep your hair looking good, treating yourself to a hot oil treatment with coconut, olive or jojoba oil will add that extra healthy glow to your hair.
This hot oil treatment is highly beneficial for the damaged dry hair. When you get a habit of doing this at least once a week then you will start to notice that the hair has become much manageable, softer and smoother. The dry hair ends will also get softer. This hot oil treatment/ therapy also works to straighten the hair to prevent hair fall. It’s easy, it’s fun, and we’ll show you how to do it!
1. Warm up the Oil
Coconut oil is usually sold in a jar. It is solid at room temperature but will turn to a liquid in the palm of your hand. It melts at a relatively low temperature. You can also use olive oil as the main oil in the treatment. Olive oil is a natural moisturizer and can help with dandruff, but does not have the protein preserving properties of the coconut oil. Olive oil is liquid at room temperature, but will heat well using the same method as the coconut oil treatment.

2. Hair massaging with Hot Oils
Dip your fingers into the hot oil and rub them together to spread the oil evenly. Start massaging your scalp with your fingers in a gentle circular motion for 5-10 minutes. Once you have applied oil all over your scalp, you can apply the remaining bit all over your hair. Massaging also enhances the blood circulation which in turn gives strength to the hair roots and hair feels bouncier. Wait for some time to let the oils sinking deeper and get absorbed fairly. The main motive of massaging with hot oils is to nourish the scalp.
3. Cover your Hair
After scalp massage with the hot oils, it’s time to cover the hair. Take a shower cap and wear on the head with all the hair inside the cap. This will prevent the oils from staining the bed sheet and pillows. Sleep with the cap on and let the oils give nourishment the entire night.
