Everything you need to know about hot oil hair treatments

When it comes to hair oils, these hot little treatments are ready to stir it up! Crammed with juicy fruits and brimming with botanical essential oils, do-it-at-home hair and scalp treatments deliver a little luxury to every day.

What if great hair only took 20 minutes out of your time? Better yet, what if you could revel in a sumptuous beauty parlour experience from the comfort of your own home? (Slippers and pyjamas welcome.)

What’s up locks?

Reminiscent of indulgent Belgian hot chocolate sticks, hot oil treatment Damaged adds a touch of decadence to a cosy night in. Choosing how much water you add means these hot oils are highly flexible, working in harmony with your hair’s needs. Getting the effect you want has never been so straightforward.

Unlike many hair treatments, this hot oil is designed to be used pre-shampoo, before wetting your hair, as cosmetic scientist and product inventor Daniel Campbell explains: ‘Using the treatment on dry hair means you are not diluting the product, and all of the beautiful essential oils and fresh fruits can fully penetrate the hair’. A divine mix of herbs and botanicals create luxurious infusions when added to water for naturally beautiful hair.  

Eco warriors who fight for clean-conscience, beautiful hair can also rest assured that these hair treatments are naked and packaging free. In-house brand designer Kirstie Maclean explains: ‘Essentially we wanted to limit unnecessary packaging by creating a How To Use in the form of icons which transcend language barriers. These icons are digitally printed on the wooden stick of the product, making the treatments wonderfully straightforward to use, whilst also cutting down on wasteful packaging.’

This hot oil treatment might just be the missing ingredient when it comes to making it a great hair day. Who knows, maybe you will meet your match?

What’s the damage?

Adorn your hair with a crown of opulent, natural oils for healthy hair. Rich olive, avocado and almond oil coat every hair strand, protecting and strengthening each one with hair enhancing proteins and vitamins.

A reparatory hot oil treatment, Damaged is perfect for when your hair needs a little extra love. By locking in moisture and improving the elasticity and tensile strength of the hair, olive oil helps to prevent further damage, whilst a pinch of sea salt gives your locks a lift and makes them more manageable.

Depending on how thirsty your hair is, you can tailor the consistency of the treatment as you make it too. Daniel Campbell states: ‘The nice thing about Damaged is that although it contains olive, almond and avocado oil you can dilute it to make it thinner, or leave it more concentrated for a richer treatment.’ A more diluted consistency best suits finer hair which is better able to absorb moisture, whilst a denser consistency suits thicker hair which needs a little more encouragement to drink up hydration. A long, hydrating drink for thirsty hair, Damaged is Ideal if you seek soft hair which still has a little volume.

So, there you have it! The power of great hair is placed in your palms, find your perfect pick and bask in head-turning hair. They're simple to use, find out here. 


Whether yours is curly, straight, wavy, afro, fine or thick, there’s one thing we’ve all got in common - we want hair that makes us feel good.
