Haircare is underrated. There, we said it.
As compared to skincare, we rarely pay the same amount of time and attention into taking care of our hair. And even if we do, most of them are styling products (such as hair gel or hairspray) and not many hair care products (like a hair mask or a hair serum). If you are someone who does a dedicated hair care routine, kudos to you! But most of us lazy souls oil their mane once a week and call it a day.
With the situation getting worse with every passing day, we would rather be safe at home with our damaged hair than going to the salons, right? But come on, don't you miss getting hair treatments that made you feel like you're going to be cast in a hair commercial? I bet you do.
Thankfully, we know how you can turn your weekly champi session into something that'll not only protect your hair but will also undo hair damage. We are talking about hot oil treatments and trust us when we say that you'll be left with stylist approved hair.
Here's why a hot oil treatment will work wonders for your hair and also help reverse hair damage (up to an extent). But first, here's how you can do it at home.
Firstly, you're going to need a lot of oils that as each of them has something amazing in store for your mane:
- Olive oil (30 ml)
- Coconut oil (30 ml)
- Castor oil (30 ml)
- Jojoba oil (30 ml)
- Argan oil (15-20 drops)
- Peppermint oil (10 drops)
- Microvanle bowl
- A plastic bottle
- Shower cap
Step 1: In a bowl, add all the oil and mix them well.
Step 2: Once done, microwave it for about 20 seconds. Once the 20 seconds are over, just check if the oils are okay to be applied to the scalp. If you think not, another 10 seconds should be fine
Step 3: Now that it's hot, you can either directly apply it to your scalp or pour it into a plastic bottle for a mess-free application.
Keep it on your hair for about an hour but make sure you massage your scalp when you're applying it.
To ensure that the oil penetrate deeper into the scalp, you can also wrap a hot towel around your hair.
Apart from the fact that it is really affordable and easy to do, the beautiful concoction of all the oils will do nothing but benefit your hair from within. Here's why these oils are not a bane to your mane:
Olive oil: Moisturizes the scalp and stimulates growth.
Coconut oil: Strengths hair and moisturises them.
Castor oil: Is amazing to combat hair loss and promote hair growth.
Jojoba oil: Makes hair thicker and shinier.
Argan oil: Strengths the hair cuticles and combats hair loss.
Peppermint oil: Is amazing to detoxify and cleanse hair.
