Hot Oil Treatment On Relaxed Hair Using TCB Naturals5 min read


Let’s talk about hot oil treatments. You might have come across this phrase a couple of times and may have even done it before. But we have additional tips and a step by step process that you or your hairstylist can follow to carry out the perfect hot oil treatment.


So why should you do a hot oil treatment? You should because it does a world of wonders for you and your relaxed hair: It deeply moisturizes hair because the oil penetrates the hair shaft, it works great to revive dull and dry hair,  it is great for the scalp because it moisturizes it and prevents a dry itchy scalp. Additionally, it helps prevent split ends by sealing them as well as helping to reduce frizz. We could go on all day, but let us just break it down for you!


With What:

For your hot oil treatment, you will need the following:

  • TCB Argan Oil which is rich in Vitamin E that helps restore your hair’s health & shine. It hydrates the hair strand and tames frizz resulting in smooth and lustrous hair.
  • A bowl or glass container
  • A larger bowl
  • Hot water
  • A plastic shower cap


Let us begin,shall we?

  1. Pour 4 tablespoons of TCB Argan Oil into your bowl or glass container.
  2. Boil some water and pour it into a large bowl.
  3. Put the bowl or glass container in the larger bowl with hot water, so that the smaller one is partially submerged for three to five minutes.
  4. Check the oil’s temperature so that it is not too hot. We don’t want you burning yourself,darling. So test the oil on your wrist before applying it to your hair. 
  5. Rub the oil on your hands to coat your fingers with oil ready to apply on your hair .
  6. Apply the now hot oil to the scalp, massaging it in small circles with your fingers, your hairline to the back of your neck and down to your ears.
  7. Once the oil is distributed throughout the scalp, apply the hot oil on your hair, from roots to ends. Then take a wide-tooth comb and pull the product to the ends of your hair 
  8. Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and leave the oil in your hair for 15 to 30 minutes.
  9. To remove the oil, wash and shampoo your hair. Finish with conditioner and continue with your relaxed hair routine.


After shampoo,but before conditioner

The optimum time to do a hot oil treatment is when the hair is wet. This is because the hair follicles are open, therefore will be more receptive to absorbing oil.


Pro tip: It is recommended that you do a hot oil treatment  once every 2 weeks.
