  • it works try it. thank you

  • this recipe worked wonders for me, but would recommend adding a note that it could be doubled or tripled for those with long or thick hair.


  • I HATED IT! It wouldn't go in my hair, it was messy, it wouldn't rinse out and I rinsed it 4 times and it made my hair smell like alcohol, though I rinsed it out so many times with a strong fragranced shampoo. I will never use this again.

  • I do this all the time I have long hair and love it! The secret to not having a glob of oil in the hair is to apply to hands first and rub hands together to even it out on your hairs. Then apply it to the hair evenly. I have a comb just for my shower I comb my hair out after applying the oil to make sure every strand get the treatment. Then I wash the oil from my comb when clean I then comb my hair out as I am rinsing it out. I rinse several times. This treatment is wonderful for damaged hair repair it saved my hair and is now is apart of my life as a weekly conditioner routine.

  • Your Hot oil treatment is fabulous. I have spend a large some of money on products to help in my triple processed damaged hair and nothing has worked. I was just about to get it all cut off when my girlfriend gave me your web site. It work wonders. You saved my hair. thank you so very much

  • i loved your hot -oil treatment it was a fun thing to do to my hair and it made it look great; and feel so much healthier; thanks so much

  • AMAZING!!!I definitly had my doubts and even washed it out early but I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed by the results. Thank you so much!!!

  • I figured that I might as well try this since I didn't really have anything to lose...I always have some olive oil and honey around the house, and it was cheaper than buying more and more sticky leave in conditioners and rosemary or coconut oils and such. I've been gawking at the pure sheen of my hair ever since I tried this treatment (as hectic as it was to use a plastic grocery bag instead of having a shower cap, and keeping it warm under the shower water), but I'm playing with my hair now a week later and I can't stop showing it off. I can finally leave my hair down again and it's light and beautiful! Thank you Robbie!

  • I did this but did it to wet hair - and placed a shower cap on for 25 minutes and washed my hair - It took the frizz right out and my hair is usually extremely dry - it made it shiny and healthy.

  • If this doesn't work for you then you do not have damaged hair. My long hair soaked it up like a sponge. Only washed/rinsed once and I had healthy looking curls. This is a winner recipe!

  • This is a GREAT treatment for your hair! I added a sprig of lavender and a sprig of mint to the oil and let it soak for awhile before warming, to give it a mild scent. Also, to add depth to your hair color (and help hide the grey!), brunettes can make a "tea" for the final rinse of approx. 2 tbls. sage that has been steeped in boiling water.
