Hot oil treatments using plant oils such as jojoba oil, coconut oil or olive oil are becoming extremely popular. But how do they work? 

The heat from the oil opens up the hair follicles, allowing the hair to easily absorb the nourishing oil, whilst coating the hair to allow it to maintain its natural moisture. 

Why Choose Jojoba Oil?

The vitamin B complex found in jojoba oil strengthens the hair and prevents breakage. This can help to revive dry, frizzy hair and stop hair becoming tangled. Vitamin E also moisturizes the scalp which prevents dandruff. 

Warm jojoba oil helps dissolve clogged hair follicles, stimulate blood circulation around the scalp and reduce hair loss.

How to Create a Hot Oil Treatment


  1. Warm 3-6 tablespoons of jojoba oil in a bowl in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Judge the amount required based on the thickness and the length of your hair.
  2. Test the oil by hand to ensure it’s not too hot. Then, using a toothed comb, untangle your hair and then massage the warm oil into your scalp.
  3. Use a shower cap or a towel to cover your hair. Wait for around 20 minutes, wash it off and then apply conditioner as usual.

We suggest a hot oil treatment once a week if you have oily hair. For those with normal/dry hair, you can do it as often as 2-3 times a week.

TOP TIP: During the hot oil treatment, make sure your clothes and any surfaces your hair might touch are covered as the oil can stain clothes and furniture. 

Other Ways To Use Jojoba Oil On Your Hair

Try applying jojoba oil before washing your hair. This will prevent the cleaning agents in your shampoo from washing away your hair’s natural oils. If you suffer from frizzy hair, a few drops of jojoba oil before you dry or style your hair will smooth it and add shine.
