Benefits of Hot oil treatment

Here are awesome results you’ll get from hot oil treatments:

  • Makes hair stronger - Many factors such as weather, chemical treatments, or too much heat styling can reduce the strength of our hair. Hot oil locks in hydration in the hair follicle, so they don’t break easily.

  • Treats dehydrated scalp and hair - Hot oil hair treatments nourish your hair and scalp by providing hydration to treat hair and scalp dryness.

  • Moisturizes frizzy hair - If you want to get rid of frizz — strands sticking out from the rest of your hair, then a hot oil treatment may do the job! Hot oil hair treatments lock in moisture on your hair and scalp leaving it smoother.

  • Relieves dandruff - Hot oil treatments are best for dandruff caused by scalp dryness because it improves the blood flow in the scalp releasing the dry, flaky skin and leaving it moisturized.

However, certain dandruff conditions such as those caused by fungus require advanced treatment.

  • Reduces split ends - Hot oil is also best for treating dry brittle and split ends because they seal the follicles, increases hydration, and strengthens its roots.
