Hot oil treatments...do they have to be organic?

If I wash my hair with shampoos that are sulfate free, co wash with vo5, and use products that have no silicones...when I do a hot oil treatment, do the oils have to be organic? Or can I just use non organic oils? Will I have to wash my hair with a sulfate shampoo after?

    just be sure that when you buy an oil, it's 100% of the plant, and not some thicknening agent or perfume or alcoloh added.
    personnaly for me it doesn't have to have a "organic certification", I bought my shea butter at a savanna market in ivory coast. who cares about green manure and ecocert certification there? lol

    just be sure it's 100% of the plant and not something mixed.

    I notice difference when I don't use organic oils for my hot oil treatments. A staple of mine is Spectrum Organic coconut oil for hair & skin. I looove this!

    That's really the key. It doesn't need any fancy certifications as long as it is just pure oil. At the same time though, the organic label guarantees quality. You might be taking a gamble otherwise. My organic oils feel a lot less "greasy" than non-organic oils. They also seem to absorb a lot faster and leave less residue. It may be because they are from different plants though.
