Hello guys. I do hot oil at the salon 1-2 a month. Any advantages of it versus home treatment(which is cheaper)?

Should I just buy those home treatment products where you leave it on the hair for 5 mins and rinse it away? Or just keep going to the salon to take advantage of the steam/heat machine?

THANKS!

I just use oils all on my own, left in overnight before I shampoo the next day. I have a heating cap I got from Amazon.com that I can use for deep treatments, like a SMT.

So the difference/advantage of salon is cuz of the heater? Other than that, exactly same?

And you dont buy hair-specific products(outside shampoo and conditioner)?

I much prefer leaving coconut oil in my hair Overnight. At least once a week. I do have a use for buying deep treatment products. My favorite is joico k pak reconstructor and hydrator I sometimes use the joico k-pak h.p.k. Spray that you spray onto your hair with the deep treatment. I just put on a shower cap and leave it for an hour. Sometimes I put a towel on my head and heat it with the blow dryer.

So I take it, no need to go on a hot oil treatment in a salon?

Also just coconut oil for cooking?

Well, I'm not sure what they might use at a salon.

Some people might use deep treatments from Sally's or something. I don't, I might use oils like avacado or coconut oils, soaked in. Or some cheapie conditioner mixed with warm honey and aloe gel. I have used a plastic cap plus a bandana then walked on the treadmill to get my scalp warmed up sometimes. I have researched all kinds of stuff on here, and it's worked pretty well for me, much of it. Cept the castor oil scalp massages, those caused me to shed a bit.

You can get some coconut oil at the grocery store, yes, the cooking kind.

Only a few natural oils are proven to penetrate the hair, anything rich in lauric acid or oleic acid should (coconut, palm kernel, babassu; avocado, olive, argan). Polyunsaturated vegetable oils, any larger molecule/ non straight chain fatty acids cannot. Salon treatments are likely to be packed with silicones. Do you have a hood dryer or heat cap? If not you can simply do a longer treatment time, at least overnight. Heat can also help panthenol and hydrolysed protein adhere.

I don't see why anyone would pay to let someone heat and apply oil but to each their own. A shower cap and a microwaved towel can do just as well.

I honestly agree which is funny because I am a hair dresser.
You may feel that way but seriously....some people can not even wrap their head around the idea of doing things like this at home themselves. Trust me.
Yeah, we're more hair savvy here but really, some people would rather pay someone because they like the results and like the special treatment/scalp massage from someone else, etc etc.

Lol oh I know some of them, they baffle me no end. I still cant convince my friend that sugar + oil makes a great body scrub without the fragrance and preservatives they put in the stuff she buys for $18 :p. Her loss.
