I absolutely love this hot oil treatment! My hair is softer immediately after first use. I am using the hot oil treatment once every three days now, because my hair is really damaged. I plan to continue to use the treatment every fortnight when my hair is (hopefully) recovered.
About the Oils:
Coconut oil is very nourishing, and due to the molecular structure, it reconditions the dry and damaged hair very effectively. The presence of capric acid, vitamin E, and lauric acid aid in restoring the hair’s vitality and strength.
Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid and omega 9 fatty acid; the earlier is a natural antibacterial and anti-fungal agent that helps in hair growth, the latter helps to nourish the hair and follicle. Accordingly, it aids in adding glossy effect to hair.

The Avocado Banana Hair Mask
This is a fruit based hair mask. The fruits used are avocado and banana.
Avocado is high in healing nutrients (phytochemicals, antioxidant, amino acids, and minerals) which promotes hair growth, nourishes and strengthens hair; most important, it heals damaged hair ends. (VERY important factor for me!)
Whereas banana has many nutrients (similar to avocado actually) that prevents split ends and soften the hair texture.
Grapeseed oil is high in linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) that combats dryness and sealing the moisture.
Rosemary essential oil is broadly used to prevent hair loss, but honestly, I use this only because I don’t want to smell like walking banana or avocado!
* You can replace the oils with something else that you are more suited – you will need to look them up and experiment *… Read More Avocado Banana Hair Mask for Dry Hair

I know it sounds crazy, but I haven’t been to my hairdresser’s for probably 2 years now. I might be one of the most particular people when it comes to hair.
