Doing A Hot Oil Treatment On Relaxed Hair 11 Weeks Post

It's time for another wash day recap! For this wash day, I'm 11 weeks post my last relaxer touch up so my new growth is making its presence known.

I've been participating in a 30 Days of Hot Oil Treatments Challenge and this is my last wash day during the challenge. My wash day last week didn't go so well so I had to change some things up in the hopes my results this week will be better than last week.

I started with a 24+ hour deep condition using the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Deep Conditioner. The products I used last wash day dried out my relaxed hair and I couldn't keep my hair moisturized. By doing this long deep condition I was able to have moisturized hair for a couple of days.

Right before I stepped into the shower I did my hot oil treatment for 30 minutes under my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap. My hot oil mix was
  • a few drops of tea tree oil
  • a few squirts of grapeseed oil
  • a few squirts of almond oil 
  • a little bit of Jamaican Black Castor Oil

After applying the mixture to my scalp and strands, I put on the Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap. The mixture of oils combined with the heat from the cap resulted in super moisturized hair!

Part of the reason my results last week didn't go so well is my hair may not have been thoroughly cleansed, so I felt clarifying was in order this week. To clarify my relaxed hair I reached for the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo and mixed it with some filtered water in an applicator bottle. This allowed me to apply the shampoo directly to my scalp and get a good lather.

After shampooing I did a hair rinse with a mixture of green tea and apple cider vinegar. I applied the mixture with another applicator bottle.

Before stepping out of the shower I conditioned for a few minutes with Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor. I squeezed out the excess water and wrapped my hair in a towel which I wore for about three hours.

Then I applied Cantu Shea Butter as my leave-in and air-dried for another few hours. By the time I went to bed, my hair was just about dried so I sealed it with almond oil, cross-wrapped it, and got some shut-eye.

I was happy with the results the next day and plan to wear my hair up for most of the week to keep my ends protected.


  1. It never ceases to amaze me at how smooth and straight your air dried hair is! I haven't used Aphogee 2 minute in forever but I remember how wonderful my relaxed hair felt after using it. I wonder if it would work as well with my natural hair...

    Anywhos...thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. Lol. I was thinking the same thing about how smooth my hair gets. If someone had told me a couple of years ago that I could get smooth hair without using heat I would laughed at them. Thanks for reading.

  2. Never heard that oils are used for treatment in such a good way. Always thought that oils are used for cooking and cleaning purposes.

    1. Oils can be used on your hair and also on your skin. You just have to be careful about what natural oils you use and make sure they will help versus hurt your hair and skin.
