I heated the Baobab oil gently by placing the bottle in hot water for 15 mins and allowing the oil to warm up, and then applied on the scalp for a hot oil conditioning. I covered my hair with a shower cap for a few hours and then washed it off using a gentle shampoo. This left my hair super soft soft and noticeably silky. Bonus, It also added some volume to the hair. Applying baobab oil to the hair protects them from damage by sun and free radicals which can leave the hair separated, damaged and frizzy. This is fast becoming a favorite oil for me.
