What are the types of hot oil?

You may use many oils in hot oil treatment for hair with different benefits based on their unique properties. If you plan to do the treatment alone, you will first need to choose the right oil.

How to do hot oil treatment?

Once you have chosen the oil you will use for your hair; it is time to do the treatment. 

  1. 1. Wash your hair with shampoo to clean and open the cuticles, letting them absorb the oil more. 
  2. 2. Make a double boiler with a pot of boiling water with a heat-safe bowl on top with three to six tablespoons of oil.
  3. 3. Heat the oil until it is warm. However, not hot enough that it could burn your hair. The oil should be comfortable enough to handle with your finger. Do a temperature test with your wrist first.
  4. 4. Allow your hair to dry a little until it is damp and not soaking wet. Brush your hair to untangle knots before applying the hot oil.
  5. 5. Apply the hot oil to your hair. Make sure that you coat every strand. Massage your scalp with hot oil.
  6. 6. Wear a shower cap and let the hot oil sit for at least 30 minutes for the cuticles to absorb. The longer you let the oil sit, the better effect you will have.
  7. 7. Shampoo your hair thoroughly until you completely wash off all the oil residue. You might need to wash and shampoo your hair twice if you use too much oil. You may apply conditioner as well.

You may do the hot oil treatment for hair once a week or more if your hair needs it. The relaxed hair will last for a few days. There are also other hair treatments that you may do to keep the strands moisturized.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is the best hot oil treatment for dry hair?

If you are dealing with dry hair, hemp seed or jojoba oil will solve this problem. Hemp seed oil is full of fatty acid that keeps your hair moisturized, while jojoba oil allows the cuticles of your hair to lock that moisture. You may combine these oils for better results.

2. Is hot oil safe for any kind of hair?

Hot oil treatment for hair is safe as long as you don’t have any allergy reaction to the one you will be using. If you are using a ready-made oil, choose a natural as chemicals may trigger sensitive skins. Always do a patch test.

3. Can I use cooking oil for hot oil treatment for hair? 

Cooking oil is not ideal for hair as it lacks the nutrients your locks need. However, you may use extra virgin olive oil as a hair treatment as it has no chemicals and heat added during the processing, retaining the nutrients in the oil.


Having dry and frizzy hair may be a bummer, but you can repair the problem. Hot oil treatment for hair has many benefits and is effortless, even by yourself. There are many plant oils available that can help you achieve your dream hair.
