Some like it Hot: Hot Oil Treatment w/ Nuele
Most people with curly hair understand the real struggle of breakage and shedding. Your curly hair can get rubbed out or pulled from the fabrics you lay on, the clothes you wear, the environments we live in. Curly hair has a softer, weaker follicle shaft usually which makes it require more TLC than our straight haired counterparts. Consider a hot oil treatment to help contain the moisture in your locks and to prevent hair loss!
Why hot oil treatments? Well for one, heat can do wonders for your hair when used right. It opens up the cuticles and allows moisture to penetrate each strand shaft. Opening the cuticles is very important if you tend to have hair that loses moisture faster. Nuele is a great all in one hair serum that contains many moisturizing oils, perfect for a treatment!
Nuele has 5 powerful ingredients that work like a superfood together, hydrating, moisturizing and clarifying the hair without residue or additives. Jojoba and Argan Oil especially stand out for hot oil treatments because they closely match our scalp’s natural sebum, which reduces dandruff, itchiness and dryness.
Here’s what you need:
Your bottle of Nuele
A pot of hot water
A plastic shower cap or plastic bag (if you need to DIY)
First, put your Nuele in a heat safe container (like glass).
Next place heat safe container in a pot of hot water for one minute.
Pro tip: microwaving oils strips them of their nutrients, so it is better to heat up with a pot on the stove!
Before applying to the scalp, test the temperature on your wrist to ensure you won’t burn yourself!
Apply oil scalp first then to the strands an ends of your hair. This is a great time for a scalp massage! Try to massage the oil deeply into your hair for a few minutes. You don’t need too much oil for this, a little goes along way!
Put on the plastic cap/bag and wear it for at least 30 minutes, or overnight. Some people use the towel as well as a plastic cap to create more steam, similar to the GreenHouse Effect method. This however is optional!
After that, shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
Over time, you will notice a reduction in shedding and softer hair. Some folks report less tangling also! Doing a treatment like this weekly is great and can be incredibly beneficial.
