Treating the Scalp with some LOVE!
When it comes to taking care of your natural hair and scalp a hot oil treatment is great for doing so. Here’s what to do. First, make sure your hair and scalp are nice and clean using the Nourishmint Clarifying Shampoo. Yes, a clarifying shampoo for natural hair. One good shampooing will do! Next, lightly condition your hair for 5 minutes, then rinse and towel blot your hair (now your hair is prepped to be able to receive your oil treatment)
Heat 1 ounce of Bye Bye Parabens Essential Healing Oil Treatment in a sauce pot (I prefer to microwave for obvious reasons) pour oil in an applicator bottle. Next, make 1/2 inch parts in your hair and apply oil to your scalp. Continue this until your entire scalp has been covered with oil. Massage the oil into your hair and scalp, then along the entire length of your hair. Place a plastic cap on and sit under heat for 30 minutes. Rinse well then shampoo your hair 1 more time. This time apply the conditioner and leave on your for 15 min with a plastic cap. Rinse and style as you like!
How often should you do this? If your hair is really dry and you have dandruff do this twice a month. If not, do this once a month.
Remember, your scalp is the key to healthy hair.
