DIY: Hot Oil Hair Treatment

Hi guys,
I know its been awhile but with the long weekend and all I wanted to do a quick and easy DIY post!

First let me explain the importance of a hot oil treatment. Hot oils are used for many reasons, mostly to help treat dry, damaged hair but they can also help with hair growth and to relax frizzy, unruly hair. Hot oil treatments should be done about once a week.

coconut oil or olive oil
a bowl
shower cap

This mask is super easy! All you do is add half a cup of coconut oil or olive oil into a microwavable bowl. Then add 4 tbsp of honey. Mix this all together then put it in the microwave (covered) for two minutes. The mixture will start to crackle. Wait until the crackling end before you remove it. Put this mixture on your hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave it on for 30 minutes to an hour and then rinse it out with shampoo. Voila a simple DIY hot oil treatment.

leave it on as long as you possibly can
