We all know that using too much heat on our hair can damage it. But, what about using heat for the good of your hair, instead of the bad? Using hot iron tools can definitely damage your hair, but heat used in other ways can help your hair be the best it can be! Professional hairstylists know how important it is to use heat when deep conditioning, which is why they always have their clients sit under a heated hair dryer. Keep reading to learn more about using different kinds of heat treatments for your hair!
- Hot Oil Treatment- If your hair is dry, brittle, frizzy, color-treated, or prone to split ends, a hot oil treatment may be exactly what you need. By sealing the hair cuticle, the oil helps protect your hair from damage. The oil can also moisturize your hair. Hot oil treatments tend to work best for natural hair. We recommend using our ONE 15 Blend Hair & Scalp Oil for your hot oil treatment! Our 15 Blend was specifically made to rejuvenate the hair and scalp. To name a few ingredients of this powerful oil, it was made with turmeric, rose oil, and aloe vera which stimulates hair growth, nourishes and relieves dry and itchy scalp, adds shine, hydrates, and strengthens the hair follicles. Want to know something even more exciting? Our 15 Blend oil doesn’t leave your hair feeling greasy like some oils can! It only feels moisturized, providing the best foundation for healthy hair.
- Heated Hair Caps- Many of us know that deep conditioning is essential to healthy hair. But, when we apply a deep conditioner without heat, the treatment can only do so much to improve the quality of our strands. Naturally, our hair cuticle is closed, and so the treatment is only able to work on the surface of the hair shaft, leaving minimal improvements. That is exactly why our founder, Wankaya, created the ONE Natural Flaxseed Heating Cap! This cap is perfect for on the go deep conditioning. We love to apply our favorite deep conditioner, (preferably the ONE Avocado Hair Smoothie) heat the natural flaxseed cap, and cover our hair for about 30 minutes while we get things done around the house! We absolutely love self care Sunday, and this cap makes that day even better! It literally feels like your hair is healthier after just one use! The benefits of using flaxseed on your hair are that it increases elasticity of hair fibres, prevens split ends, stops premature greying, keeps dandruff and dry scalp at bay, reduces hair thinning, and strengthens hair from the roots! So imagine the amazing results using flaxseed AND heat AND a deep conditioner all at once! It’s a game changer!
- Steam From The Shower- Did you know you can still prep your hair with shower steam It helps open your hair follicles for better product absorption, which is useful when curl styling. All you have to do is run your shower on high for a good 10-15 minutes, and let the steam indirectly smooth your strands and prepare them for action!
- A Hair Steamer- Utilizing the flat iron’s lesser known cousin can help you refresh an old style if you’re in a hurry. The moistened heat can also hydrate, reshape curls if you have them, detangle, deep condition and add volume. Basically, there’s nothing it can’t do.
Our goal is to help you have the healthiest hair possible! There are ways to use heat for the good of your hair! But, if you are using hot iron tools, we want to gently remind you to always use a heat protectant or heat protectant oil.
