Naturally kinky, curly hair can easily go from bouncy, shiny, well-moisturized curls to a dried up stack of hay. It can undoubtedly be a frustrating experience but one of the tried and true ways to remedy the issue is treating your curls to a hot oil treatment. The reason hot oil treatments work is because the heated oil is able to penetrate into the hair shaft to deliver long lasting moisture, nutrients, and the shine that naturally curly hair loves.

Applying a hot oil treatment can be super simple and make a huge difference when using the right products. To begin:

Start out with a cleansing shampoo

When applying any treatment, you want to start with a clean head of hair and scalp. Wash your hair with a gentle but effective shampoo like the Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo. Afterwards, separate your hair into 4 to 5 manageable sections.

Warm up your oil

The star of the show is the oil when it comes to a hot oil treatment. Choose a nutrient, multi-blend oil that will leave your hair moisturized for weeks afterwards. Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Complex is an excellent oil that will leave your hair moisturized and your strands strong. Heat up a bowl of water and put the entire bottle in the bowl of warmed water to heat up the oil. Saturate each section with the warmed oil, smoothing it through the strands. Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap for 20-30 minutes to allow the oil to continue to penetrate into strands.


After about 20-30 minutes, rinse out the oil with the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Co-wash Conditioning Cleanser and style as usual. Your hair will be shiny, moisturized and bouncy for weeks afterwards.

Why Anti-Inflammatory Foods Are Important

Eating a wide variety of anti-inflammatory foods is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

When we eat heavily refined foods on a consistent basis, we are putting our defense system on overload, which can damage cells and tissues, potentially leading to various diseases.
