Hot oil hair treatments are for women with too much time on their hands. There, I said it. If you have enough time at night to go home, wait for your treatment to heat, apply it, spend the hours it takes for the conditioning oil to seep into your follicles and then still have strength it takes to wash it out – you need to get a hobby. And not a hobby that will facilitate your use of such hair treatments. Please do not take this as my suggestion that you take up needlepoint to pass the time as your hair conditions. I am not asking that you groom less, I am not suggesting you leave your hair dry and deprived. I am attempting to instill in you is the same love I have recently developed for Moroccan Oil hair products. 

If you find yourself with little time and in major need of an at home spa treatment, pick up one or more of these products at a beauty supply store or at a local salon. Made in Israel, these products are paraben free and therefore safe to use daily, if you are pregnant or on your children. For those who are unfamiliar, parabens are preservatives commonly used in cosmetics and have proved to be unhealthy when absorbed in large amounts over time, especially in pregnant women. Throwing a bottle of the oil into your beach bag or sitting at home with the restorative hair mask for seven minutes rather than two hours will make your hair as smooth as any ordinary hot treatment. Was that the sound of you throwing away all your alcohol-packed chemical hair products? I thought so. Now you can use all the time I just saved you in your hair regimen to take up activities far more fitting of a Jewish mother, like shopping and tennis.
