A hot oil treatment restores the shine to dry, damaged hair; many stylists recommend a once-weekly treatment to keep locks in stellar shape. You don't have to run to the shops to buy a costly hot oil treatment or make an appointment at the hairdressers. You probably even have the ingredients for a hot oil treatment right in your kitchen cupboards. The natural oils add needed moisture to thirsty, dry hair and help repair split ends and damage caused by styling aids such as hairdryers and tongues.
