Hot Oil Hair Treatment

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by Sassy Syrah

I have only used this once, but am very happy with the result. I would often use V05 hot oil tubes but this is much cheaper. I used eucalyptus as the essential oil, but I think lavender would be good too.

My hair felt very silky, but it had a real greasy look to it and I washed it twice. I have very fine hair so perhaps if you have thick hair it will work better.
