Doing a Hot Oil Treatment on Relaxed Hair 11 Weeks Post

This past wash day I was 11 Weeks Post my 7/11 Relaxer Touch Up. This was also my last during the 30 Days of Hot Oil Treatments Challenge and thankfully it went better than last weeks wash day.

I started with a 24+ hour deep condition using 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!

I felt clarifying was in order so I cleansed with SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo mixed with filtered water in an applicator bottle. Then I rinsed with green tea and apple cider vinegar mixed together.

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 with almond oil, cross wrapped 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.

The Wash Day Experience


  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.
