Jojoba oil promotes hair growth when used as a hot oil treatment by warming oil in a microwave for a few seconds or submerging the bottle into hot water for two to three minutes. The hot oil treatment calls for massaging the warmed oil well into the scalp for a few minutes two or three times weekly.
