How to Use Hot Almond Oil Treatment for Dry And Coarse Natural Hair

Almond oil is very light in consistency and not as thick as some of the other oils, this is what makes it a more suitable option for a hot oil treatment for coarse and very dry natural hair. Its an ideal oil for dry, curly and frizzy hair due to the fact that it works to soften the hair and helps to control the dryness that causes frizz in the first place.

To properly complete the almond oil hot oil treatment you need to do the following:

1. Wash you hair. Your hair needs to be clean before you apply any oil to your hair or your scalp. Start by shampooing and rinsing your hair with lukewarm water. If you're unable to wash your hair, just use a spray bottle to spray your hair until its evenly covered (but not dripping wet) with water, then comb through your hair using a wide-tooth comb.

2. Warm up 1-2 tablespoonfuls of almond oil using a safe method of putting the oil inside a small Ziploc bag and placing this bag into a cup of steaming hot water. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Before you place the almond oil inside the Ziploc bag, you can add just 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract or some other essential oil such as rosemary in the case that you want to add some fragrance.

3. Dip your hands in the almond oil and run your hands throughout your hair making sure to distribute the oil evenly from your roots to the ends of your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to lightly and gently comb the oil to make sure its fully absorbed into your hair.

4. Wrap your hair in a plastic cap. You can use a plastic shower cap or any plastic makeshift cap that will allow your hair to stay covered in order to absorb the oil completely. Leave the almond oil to sit on your hair for 30 minutes. Wash your hair using conditioner (co-washing) instead of shampoo in order to remove any excessive oil. Towel dry ( pat and do not rub as this will damage your hair and cause frizz).

Do the almond oil hot treatment for at least once a week, or twice a week if needed or if your hair is very dry and damaged and you want to experience longer hair growth doing so will help to keep your hair shiny as well as healthy. When your hair is well moisturized, you'll also be able to grow long natural hair because the chances of excessive shedding and breakage are reduced.
