I have kindly recently been sent a sample of Antedote Hot Oil to Try. Read on to hear more about my thoughts!
The Hot Oil treatment is full of Vitamin E and monounsaturated fatty acids. This claims to leave hair stronger, shiny and silky. It includes a host of amazing oils such as jojoba, organ and jojoba and are bended with hemp and broccoli seed oils and phytokeratin. The scent is that of Ylang Ylang, Geranium rose and Patchouli.
To use you need to pop the oil in a mug of hot water and leave it to heat (in the bottle). Then apply it to damp hair (down to the dose line) from the mid to ends. Massage it in and leave (preferably wrapped) for 5-10 minutes. Then it is advised to wash throughly, shampoo twice and style as wanted.
I have used this twice now and have really enjoyed using it. It is an intensive treatment and works amazingly.
It of course isn’t ideal to have to wash hair and then get out of the shower and wait for 10 minutes however the best way I found to do it was to have a really nice long hot shower…. Firstly wash my hair. Then apply this before doing anything else. Wrap it up and then I would wash my body, shave everywhere and everything I need to… oil or inshower moisturiser.. wash, cleanse, exfoliate my face and body, Slap some music on and just have a chill and a through scrub! After 5-10 minutes has passed I would then remove the wrap and wash and condition hair as normal.
I found my hair looked more alive after using this. Brighter, with less fall out and more shine. It seemed to just my hair that refresh it needs! I will certainly e repurchasing this one. It is a great intensive therapy for your hair and something I feel a lot of people don’t do, me included, as often as we probably should!
