Oils For Your Hot Oil Treatment

Every natural hair or relaxed hair lady has some oils stashed somewhere for moisturizing and sealing but do you know about using oils for  hot oil treatment ? I have a short post on how to do hot oil treatments (see here).  The next thing to tackle is what oil you can use for your treatment.
Coconut Oil

This is by far, the most popular oil in the hair care industry and it's for a good reason too. The coconut oil has been proven to have the ability to penetrate the strands far which makes it one of the most effective oils for hot oil treatments. It's able to prevent the hair from absorbing too much water which can cause hygral fatigue so go ahead and use your coconut oil

Palm Kernel oil

Although the smell of this oil can be a put off, it's benefits for the hair should motivate you to use it for your treatments. The good thing about the oil too is that it's readily available in the markets.

The other oils that you can use are:
Castor oil 
which does not only grow hair but it's an anti fungal treatment which can clear any fungus on the scalp.
Olive oil
Almond oil
Corn oil
homemade oil mixes eg carrot oil, lemongrass oil, garlic oil


As usual, be sure the oil you heat up isn't too hot to dip your fingers into.
