Now, I'm not going to go into the process because I literally followed her recipe step by step and applied it the same way, and I don't want to get credit for her amazing hard work in designing such a fabulous treatment.
But I will talk about the results, and washing it out while no poo.
First off, listen to her, okay? Cocnut oil and olive oil is a pain to get out of your hair if you are no 'poo. I finally just upended the Dr. Bronner's on my head and scrubbed like mad after carefully applying paste after paste of baking soda. It felt like I went through half a box. That said, the results are worth the excessive scrubbing. The non-hair results are also amazing. The warm, radiating heat from the oil and towel soaked into my neck and shoulders and finally unwound a lot of tension that's been resting there for two weeks.
My hair is s-o-f-t. It has a deeper shine than twice-weekly no pooing gives it, which is saying something. It doesn't feel greasy at all, which considering it was dunked in oil for an hour is pretty impressive. The ends of my hair have always been a bit rough and dry, and they've smoothed out and become completely tangle-free. The other wonderful thing about the hot oil treatment is that it really makes the warm tones from the henna I did shine.
So, pictures! Also, in case you're wondering, this is what hair looks like 22 weeks into no poo. The hot oil treatment was a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil, and my hair now feels like bunny fur.
