I've Joined A Hot Oil Treatment Challenge

It's been a while since I've been a part of a hair challenge and when I saw the 30 Days of Hot Oil Treatments Challenge Jay of Relaxed Thairapy and Jen of Just Grow Already I just had to join. I did hot oil treatments regularly last year and really liked the results I got from them.

When I'd do a hot oil treatment my relaxed hair would feel moisturized, have a nice shine and my scalp wouldn't feel dry during most of the week. The results were always so good that I'm not sure why I stopped doing hot oil treatments other than they can be time-consuming and messy.

To participate in the challenge I will need to do a hot oil treatment using the oil of my choice during each wash day, no matter how long. I did my first hot oil treat during a mid-week wash in preparation for my Labor Day weekend trip. I was going to be due for a wash and didn't want to try and do a hot oil treatment deep condition or even wash away from home.

For my latest hot oil treatment, I used a mix of grapeseed oil, almond oil, and Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I then wore my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap for about 15-20 minutes. The results were marvelous! My relaxed hair and scalp felt and still feel great. For my next hot oil treatment, I'm thinking about adding tea tree oil to the mix.

What oils do you use for hot oil treatments?


  1. Great choices for your oil Leah. How do you like the Jamaican Black Castor Oil? I yet to try it and have been looking into getting me some. I love tea-tree oil, its great for the scalp!

    1. I like the JBCO. This was my first time using it in a hot oil treatment. I typically use it on my scalp and have noticed a difference in how my scalp feels. Because of the thickness a little goes a long way. I also love tea tree oil. I think I'll be using in all my hot oil treatments going forward. Thanks for reading!
