After shampoo do I condition before doing a hot oil treatment?
I would do the hot oil in between the shampoo and conditioner.
I actually prefer to do a hot oil treatment before shampooing my curls and coils. I use it as a deep treatment to condition, strengthen and add shine to my hair. When I shampoo, I find that my hair is softer and less stripped than before. I like them in the winter as part of a regimen that includes deep conditioning and steam treatments. Of course, your hair may be different. Feel free to experiment for the best method for your hair.
