How do we get healthy hair? Sure, all of the actors in Hollywood always have picture perfect locks, but they’re spending thousands of dollars maintaining it. As I was prepping my hair this morning I noticed that my hair was looking anything but red carpet ready. There was no bounce or shine to these strands so I went to celebrity hairstylist Krista Bradford who recommended that I create a DIY hot oil treatment. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to add extra strength and shine back into your hairstyle.
DIY Hot Oil Treatment:
Start by adding a 1/2 cup Almond Oil
Add 1/4 cup Avocado Oil
And a 1/4 cup Olive Oil
Mix all the ingredients together until throughly blended.
Place the treatment in the microwave for about 40 seconds. Be careful as the oil can get very hot! The heat will open your hair cuticle allowing all the nutrients and oils to absorb into your hair.
Prep your hair for the treatment by shampooing and gently towel drying to remove any extra moisture.
Now it is time to apply the treatment. If you have thick, course hair apply the treatment from your roots the the ends of your hair. If you have fine, thin hair apply the treatment from the mid shaft down.
Apply a plastic bag or shower cap over your hair to keep the moisture and heat in. You can also apply a towel over the cap or bag to retain extra heat.
Leave the treatment on for 20-25 min. For a more intense treatment leave the product on overnight. When you are finished with the treatment, shampoo and condition your hair.
