DIY – Hot Oil Treatment for your Hair

Share via email

Fresh off my epic Went-to-the-Library-From-Home, I tried a new hair mask (or masque if that makes it sound cooler).


I had read in multiple spots that coconut oil was great for the follicles.  Interestingly enough, most sites also said Olive Oil would work equally as well to moisturize and tame my tresses.



By now, I am sure you know my motto of “Why Not”.  So, I mixed one TBS of Olive Oil and one TBS of coconut oil.


Then I popped it in the microwave.  Why?  I remember as a teenager using HOT VO-5 Hair Oil and I thought this would be cool.  I also couldn’t figure out how to get it on my hair.


My scientific approach was to microwave it at 15 second intervals until it was warm and runny.  This timed out at 45 seconds for me.


I should mention I did this when Craig was out taking advantage of Kohl’s night owl sales.


What ended up happening was comical.  I ended up with slick hair al-la Miley.  I did not rock the look like she did.


I was a little up in the air on how long I should leave the concoction in.  My first thought was to leave it on all night and shower in the morning.



One look at this face quickly solidified the fact I needed to shower immediately.  Otter, like me, has a thing for coconut oil.


In the end, I washed the oil out of my hair in approximately 20 minutes.


I will be honest – it took a lot of washing.  Overall, I think this is a once-in-a-while type of thing.  Or, maybe, if my hair was longer and more damaged.


The plus side was my hair was indeed shinier and bouncier for days.  I finally used a styling product Monday morning.


So, if you are looking for a hair masque for dry, damaged hair, I would give this one a try.


It also doubled as an awesome Baby Oil.  I tried it on my legs and it made them really smooth!
