Default Hot oil treatment... now what?

Hey everyone,

So, I did a hot oil treatment last night. I did the Queen Helene Cholesterol protein oil and the Jojoba oil. Since i have tons of thick hair i figured i might need 2 and since they are both full of protein, i'd do a bit of both. well today i noticed no real change... My hair pretty much looks the same. i left it on for 1 and a half episodes of iCarly and the beginning of Scrubs... co- washed with VO5 and Burts Bees Sugar and Grapefruit conditioner. what could this mean? Protein was never the issue? Does this mean i am protein sensitive? How else can i get moisture in my hair?

Since your hair is the same, I doubt it's a protein issue. If you had issues with protein, your hair would feel much dryer...much much dryer.
I used to use hot oil treatments and I don't think they really did much of anything for me, personally.

I use similar hot oil treatment i think without the Cholesterol.

I all I can really say is that my hair feels a lot better and is way more shinier until the next wash out

I would try a different moisture treatment. I can't do hot oil treatments because they don't penetrate the hair shaft.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Yea i think that's exactly what happened- the oils didnt seem to penetrate. I bought GVP Conditioning Balm and might pick up some avocados and some other goodies and blend together and apply. Might leave it over night and hopefully that might help.

GVP Conditioning Balm is one of my go-to's. I also really like Jessicurl Too Shea and WDT.

Tried the QHC hot oil before attempting to go CG and couldn't tell it did anything at all, nor did VO5 - in fact, the latter has a caution about leaving it on for more than a minute. What's that all about?!

I do much better to just use plain jojba or coconut oil if I use oils at all. I much prefer to just DT with rich conditioners like GVP balm and AOHR. I'm about to try Lustrasilk to see what all that hoopla is about.

Haha, let me know how the Lustrasilk goes! I might a whole bunch of butters and start experimenting! I have no life anyways, might as well do something productive

Have you ever tried AOHR conditioner? It's great if you need more moisture.

Yes, AOHR is very moisturizing - so much so that I can pretty much only use it as a DT. The oils in it weigh me down too heavily for regular use.

i quit being a curly but i will try and give my hair tons of moisture! I tried the GVP Conditioning Balm and it was awesome. I might still invest in the AOHR cause whether curly or straight, HAIR NEEDS MOISTURE!!!

Thanks for the help

Whaddaya mean you quit being a curly?!

I love GVPCB as a regular rinse-out and also leave it on for longer times with a cap as a DT sometimes, but AOHR is even more moisturizing, at least for me.

LOL. I straightened my hair. LOL. I'm going to get a big chop done in a couple weeks, then i'll try the fully CG thing again. I think my hair is too damaged at this point which is probably why nothing is working on my hair. I am going to keep nourishing it tho so that after my BC, i can get real actual curls and not the stringy stuff my hair was doing!

AOHR here i come

You're too hard on yourself - like most of us. I thought the recent pictures you posted were very pretty.
