- Infused herbs. Some women love to add herbs in the warming oil. Try a mixture of any of the following: rosemary, parsley, black tea or chamomile (take the leaves out of the bags).
Add in the drops (never more than 3 drops of essential oils, please) and stir.
If you are adding tea leaves or any infused herbs, add this to the bowl while heating it up. Once oil is heated, use cheesecloth or a coffee filter to strain.
Separate hair into 4 sections -- 2 up and 2 down -- and apply the hot oil using a pastry brush to the bottom sections first.
Once hair is covered, massage the hot oil into the scalp.
Using Saran wrap, wrap your hair in plastic. Follow this with a hot towel. Leave the oil treatment in for at least 30 minutes.
Shampoo hair at least twice to get the oil out (it could be crunchy if you don't). You can also mix in baking soda with your shampoo to get the oil out.
