It's time to makeover your haircare routine!
One popular hair care routine in the 1920s was a hot oil treatment using olive oil. Women would massage hot olive oil into their scalp the night before a shampoo. It would break up the dirt, oil, and flakes of skin clinging to the scalp. Then when they would wash, the shampoo bar (liquid shampoo didn't come out until the 1930s) would cleanse away the dirt and debris. When they would brush their hair the sebum their scalp produced would be distributed down the hair shaft creating shine.
Our Conditioning Hot Oil Treatment is inspired by these oil treatments from the 1920s. We've included 9 scalp and hair nourishing oils and 11 essential oils to treat, moisturize and soothe your scalp and soften and add shine to your hair!
