Hey guys it has been awhile since I did a hot oil with treatment side to side and I do want today so I just I’m just going to show you really quickly how to do mine on my natural hair and we’re going start with how it heated up.
Okay, first I just take a pot of water and I bring it to a boil. So I’m just waiting for it to boil right now and then I’m going to mix my oil which I’m about to show you next. Okay so while I’m waiting for my water to boil at this time I’m going to mix my oils so as I showed you the previous video I had to end up putting my coconut in this mustard container that I got from Wal-Mart because I knocked over the jar and spilled it everywhere.
And it’s just easier for me to apply using this kind of you know squeezy mustard bottle so and of course with the mustard I got a ketchup bottle so this is what I want to use to mix my oils and apply my hot oil treatment. So I’m just going to take some coconut oil and I’m just going to just use my better judgment as come out still and then I’m going to use my African Royale Hot Six Oil Treatment.
Now you can use this as a regular hair oil, this is the oil that I also use still with my hair but one back that tells you know it applies to shampoo hair, just towel dry and heated up and basically put it on and you can leave it on for 3 to 5 minutes but I’m going to leave mine on for about 10 to 15 and I’m just going to add some in here and I think that should be enough so that’s Coconut and Hot Six Oil.
And my water should be ready now, okay and I just bring my pot over the table here and now I’m going to just put my oil in there. I’m going to let it sit for a little while. I’m going to go shampoo my hair wax it and I’m going to do a whole wash because I don’t shampoo very often. So I’m going to use some conditioner. I want to do coat wash and then I’ll be back so far when I had all the treatment.
Okay and I’m back I just finished all my coat wash had moved the towel here. I’m just going to pull into a section of my hair into four sections. My oil is hot in my bottle and I’m just going to go through with tip of the and just apply it. So I stop first and then I mean you literally want a full oil coming down the hair shaft anyway. Just apply a little bit to the hair shaft just bring it on down to the just really easy to the and once you get down to the ends just go back and apply a little bit more.
So I’m just going to finish this p and then I’ll come back and show you how I put my plastic cap on and my turvy towel and then I’ll show you the finished results. Okay, so I just have a little bit more left in the bottle so I’m just taking and make sure I get all of it on to my hair and get down to the last drop and as you could see it is just really just went every strand and that’s what you’re really going for okay so once you get it all the way through right down to the end grab your plastic cap cap it on to your head. Grab your turvy towel or your regular towel.
You even need a towel I know I had to because the oil to is going drip a little bit out the side so the towel is going to help catch those drips. Oh also make sure that your wearing something that you don’t you know consider very valuable because you will get oil on to you. I’m going to let this sit for 10 to 15 minutes I’m going rinse it out and then I’m going to start my hair as usual, hopefully I’ll be back with the tutorial, okay bye guys.
