Imagine having a blend of natural oil working on your hair to promote healthier hair. This is what the Hot Oil Treatment does. It can be used as intense conditioning on wash days or as a daily hair and scalp oil. Before shampooing, massage warm oil through damp hair and scalp, cover with a plastic cap and a warm, damp towel for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Yes there's something as over-treating your hair. Back to back hair dyeing is a no-no. Wait for at least 6 weeks before applying another hair dye to your hair. Allow your hair to breathe. If you're also in the habit of deep conditioning more than once a week, please stop.
Deep conditioning should not only be a reserved treatment when your hair starts to break. Considering how natural hair loves moisture, deep conditioning treatment should be part of your regimen. Some recommend deep conditioning once every 2 weeks.

Almost every person with natural hair has experienced shrinkage one way or the other. Is it cause for alarm? Not necessarily. Shrinkage is part of being natural. Some say, shrinkage is an indication of healthy natural hair. Of course too much of everything is bad. If you do experience shrinkage a lot, don't be worried. Try the African threading or banding method to stretch out your hair from time to time.
