You know what's not fun? The things that winter does to our hair. It seems like the cold, bitter winds and low temperatures hold a vengeance towards our locks. From causing knots to a dry scalp, when the arctic-like weather hits, things are far from pretty. The solution? A Hot Oil Treatment.
Now before you get ahead of us and freak that we are going to give you some time-consuming concoction, we first want to say that this oil treatment is easy. As in, throw in your hair, clean your house, and shower it out easy. So for everyone who is too busy to add an extra step into their beauty routine, we have your backs (and hair).
Let's cover the benefits of oil treatments...
First, oil treatments are a great way to penetrate the hair's root and pack a dose of hydration. They are cheap alternative to keeping your locks luscious, and mane tamed. Plus, it helps to restore the balance and moisture in one step. Lastly, they also get the blood flowing in your scalp, since you massage the oil in.
Let's get to the ingredients for the mask, so you can know what you're putting in your hair!
Jojoba Oil acts as a natural conditioner, and helps to soothe as well as smooth the hair. This is the base ingredient for the hot oil treatment since it's rich and hydrating.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary has been touted for its many aromatic benefits. Since it's known to be an uplifting scent, we've added it into the hot oil treatment so you can feel good while you're nourishing your hair.
There are many benefits of honey, but one of the most prominent is its ability to seal moisture. So it helps soak in all the oil benefits, bringing some serious shine out.
