Re: Do You Ever Give Your Hair A Hot Oil Treatment?

Only the once, never again. It made my hair horrible and slimey looking, it hung in rats tails and took a couple of weeks of washing every day to get it back to normal..

Re: Do You Ever Give Your Hair A Hot Oil Treatment?

I've never tried it. But with all this swimming I do think a deeper conditioning would be good for it

I put a plastic cap on my head and either blow a warm hairdryer on it or leave it on my hair for hours! You can also cover your hair with a warm towel.

I shampoo it off and my hair feels so much better.

Have you ever tried this?
No and have no wish to do so.

Re: Do You Ever Give Your Hair A Hot Oil Treatment?

I once put oil in my hair when I was about 14. It was suggested in Jackie magazine as a way to make your hair really shiny. I think it took fifty washes for my hair to stop feeling like an oil slick!

TBH Jackie magazine should have been sued for some of the awful advice they gave.

Completely wrong I know ... but I've tried it the other way around.
Oiled my hair an hour or so before washing .. and then it seems to protect it some from the shampoo stripping out too much of my natural oil. Wrong way around I know.
I've always had dry hair.
We have similar hair. I also oil my hair first before shampooing to protect it but I usually condition the length of my hair first and scalp wash only otherwise my hair dries right out.
I use a bit of coconut oil in my hair everyday which helps it keep its curl, adds shine and eliminates the frizz.

Have you ever tried this?
Yes, yonks ago when I used to have long hair and then my parting started to widen somewhat

Even though my hair was shiny and basically in good nick, I thought doing the coconut oil treatment might help. Took half a teaspoon out of the jar every week and warmed it over a pan of boiling water. Massaged it in then wrapped a towel round my head for about half an hour.

Also used to massage bay rum on other occasions.

Nothing helped, so I had a short cut from then onwards. Bah humbug

Re: Do You Ever Give Your Hair A Hot Oil Treatment?

The last time l did the hot oil treatment, l only gave my hair one shampoo when l washed the oil out. Big Mistake as my hair was a bit lank! After the next shampoo, my hair was much better!

Yesterday, l used Paul Mitchell, The Conditioner ĎORIGINALí on my hair. I have had it for years now. Itís expensive but you only need a tiny spot about the size of a penny in the palm of your hand. Slightly rub your palms together and apply it evenly to your pre-washed hair. You donít rinse it out!

It is non greasy. I had even applied normal conditioner after l shampooed my hair, then put this on as an afterthought. My hair was the best for ages and full of body!

Re: Do You Ever Give Your Hair A Hot Oil Treatment?

One of my hairdressers told me never to put oil on hair as it takes forever to wash out .

I can believe that.

I am so glad my hair is very short, it is dry by the time I get downstairs after my shower.
