    Well, I do a hot oil treatment ever saturday. I usually just heat up about a quarter-cup(ish) of sesame oil with a few tablespoons of sandalwood and/or coconut oil till slightly warm to the touch. Then I rub it into my scalp and massage the rest into my hair, leave on for 30 minutes, then wash out. I'm new to CG, so do u have any tips on how to wash out hot oil without sulfate shampoos? :D

    I do a hot oil treatment with 1 TBS of honey and 2 tbs of coconut oil (or 1 tbs coconut oil and 1tbs olive oil). I put the ingredients into a sandwich bag then place the bag in warm water. once it's warm I take it out and puncture the bag and squeeze all over my scalp and hair then massage it through. I then put on a plastic cap and leave it in my hair for about 20 to 30 minutes then I rinse it out.

    Im going to have to try that @Cali Chik. If you don't mind me asking what type is your hair? I want to know so I know how to measure it for my own hair..

    I'm slowly going crazy over the progress of my hair... I'm content with the length but the texture is not how i want it!

    Plastic/nylon emit dangerous chemicals when heated, that 's why it's advised not to drink or buy bottled water which has been stored in direct sunlight or in a closed car.
    You might want to warm the oil in a heat resistant container.

    Actually, olive oil by itself is a great, affordable hot oil treatment. I do them weekly (mostly during the winter; in the summer I just do oil rinses) and focus on my scalp and ends. It works great!

    Coconut oil is another good alternative because it penetrates the hair. If you're into ayurveda, try vatika oil; it's coconut oi infused with ayurvedic herbs.
