Now to the hot oil treatment....
1/2 cup of avocado oil- moisturizes, nourishes and strengthen hair strands, protects from damage
2 tsp of castor oil- anti-fungal, prevents dry and itchy scalp, emollient and humectant for hair
1 tbsp of cupuaca butter- benefits dry damage hair while protecting moisture and leaving hair soft
MOISTURE MOISTURE MOISTURE!!!
Fill a small pot up half full with water
Place all of the ingredients above in a glass bowl
Set the glass bowl over the pot--make sure that the bowl fits properly on the pot and that the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl
Set your stove to a medium heat (I used 4/5)
Heat up the oil enough just so the butter melts
Remove the glass bowl when everything is fully combined
Allow to cool for 5 minutes
Apply to hair in sections, fully saturate hair
Twist and tuck each section into itself ( this way you do not have an oil slick running down your back
*I found that apply the oil in sections over the bowl creates less mess
Cover your hair with 2 shower caps--at this point you can decide to sit under a dryer/heat cap or just let your natural body heat do the work
You can shampoo your hair or co-wash at this point, it is up to your preference
I co-washed with Giovanni Tea Tree Conditioner
Depending on your hair texture you may need to detangle prior to adding the oil mixture but I found that once my hair was saturated the knots and tangles just melted away
I applied the color to my hair afterwards for 2 hrs.
Washed it out--Steamed and styled
