Put the emollient in a heat-proof measuring cup and place it in a hot-water bath until the emollient reaches 100-105 degrees. Thoroughly massage the warm oil into your scalp and brush it through your hair until it is evenly dispersed. For long, thick hair use 1-2 teaspoons of oil or more as indicated.
For thinner, shorter hair use 1/2 -1/2 teaspoon or more as indicated. Wrap your hair with a plastic bag or shower cap, then place a thick wool cap over that. The natural heat released from your scalp will facilitate the conditioning process. Leave your hair covered in this manner for at least an hour, then wash your hair for a shiny, luxurious result. Note that it is not absolutely necessary to wash your hair after this treatment.
