Since winter is tryin to kick down the door in the midwest I'm looking for some extra moisture. I already mix castor oil with my leave-in. I hv to thank the ladies of naturallycurly.com for the help! Any suggestions on a hot oil treatment?
A good hot oil treatment is olive oil. You could mix this with some jojoba oil or even amla oil. Jamaican Black Castor Oil is wonderful as well.

Usually you just take some of the oil and heat it in the microwave for some seconds to get hot. Some people heat it in a double broiler. You could also just put the oil in your hair, put on a clear cap and go under a dryer or steamer. There are various ways. Lastly, there's the overnight treatment that I do often by putting the oil in my hair and allow by body heat to work on the strands.

I apply oil (I love vatika or castor oil for this) to my hair and scalp, then I go under my steamer for about 20-30 min, then I rinse, shampoobar, condition/DT as always

I would like to try this with perhaps castor and olive oil as I have both on hand. For below shoulder length thin hair how much would I use, I need advise because I am afraid if I used to much I would have oil roots for days! Thanks.
@mikosbelle
I buy all my ayurvedic herbs (with the exception of 2) from Ayurnatural Beauty. It's a store owned by EkuaSoul. Believe me, Ekua's shipping is out of this world. She ships on the same day or next and you receive your items in 2 - 3 days. They are the Hesh brand. Yes ayurvedic herbs are safe for colour treated hair. The only thing is that amla & brahmi do darken your hair colour, thus you should remember this if you wish to try these herbs.


@sharie43
You should probably start off with 1/2 teaspoon of oil and then climb from there. If the 1/2 tsp does not cover your hair thoroughly, then increase the amount. I usually use about 3/4 tsp of vatika oil because it is thinner and spreads easily. If I'm using JBCO, then I'd use about 1/4 because it's really thick and can be spread nicely over my coils. HTH!

I hate VO5 hot oil treatments. They leave my hair dry and oily. I may try olive oil... I'm not really sure what a hot oil treatment is supposed to do. When my hair was relaxed it made it shiny and more moisturized but since I went natural they don't work anymore.
Current Regimen: I am doing protective styles for the winter. Two Strand Twists and Twist Outs. Wet hair in the middle of winter is not cute.
Favorite Products: Komaza Care Coconut Line, Kinky Curly Line, and Africare 100% Glycerin
Never Again: Carol's Daughter, Miss Jessie's, Garnier Fructis, Hot Oil Treatments
Hair Type: Texture-Spongy, Strand Size-Medium, Curl Pattern-I in the front, O in the middle, and S in the back. 4a
Thanks, I am glad I asked I was thinking 1/4 cup which would of been a no-no
No problem at all.

I really like using this product for my hot oil treatments. It leaves my hair so soft and manageable.



Sometimes, I will use this one too.
