Since I am new to having curly hair (since three days ago!), I am wondering how one could warm up an oil without it being overheated? And also, what are some steps for using hot oil treatment at home and what are some things to pay attention to? Thank you very much in advance for all your help! =)

TRESemme Naturals Moisture Conditioner
Aveda - Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother (NOT CG approved, but my stylist recommended it as a great anti-humectant)
Live Clean Fresh Water Leave-in Conditioner
Style(testing these products, since I have just gotten my big chop)

If you're gonna use fruit, get the strained baby food. Or buy a pet fruit bat so it can sit around and pick it's dinner out of your 'do.

If you use egg - DO NOT use hot water to rinse it out. Even the fruit bat won't be able to help you with that.

If you use canned coconut milk, strain it first to make sure that they didn't put any little "bits" in it.

Other than, go raid the grocery and see what works for your hair. Hit the wiki link in my sig for ideas.

Try Coconut Oil; a study has shown that Coconut Oil can actually penetrate the hair shaft, and fight dandruff, lice, and lice eggs;
try putting the Coconut Oil in a heat resistant glass bowl, and then put the glass bowl with the Coconut Oil in it over a pot of boiling water, and let is sit for a few minutes; this should heat the oil evenly without overheating it.

Of course, hot oil treatments can be availed in beauty salons too. But as compared to the homemade products, the other two will be slightly costlier.Salons often employ this technique for the most damaged of tresses, but they also charge an arm and a leg for their services. You can also purchase ready-made oil treatments for more modest price at your local drugstore.

Argan oil and emu oil penetrate the hair shaft as well, i use argan myself, it is pricey so i always mix it with somthing else to make it stretch. I've been trying to get hold of rosemary oil cause ive heard that its a great growth stimulater, i had trouble finding it so i picked same fresh rosemary put it in a jar and poured warm EVOO over it. ive let it sit for two weeks so tomorrow night im going to add argan to it and a bit of sweet amond and use it as a hot oil treatment

I use olive oil. I had a severe breakage problem. I have been using it for months now my hair retains moisture and has grown a lot. My hair is very long now! Try it out!

Applying hot oil is really easy and can be done at home. All you have to do is to heat up the hair oil properly. You can then heat the oil in your microwave for about a minute before you apply it on to your hair.
