The Ankylosaurus

Or “Looking like a weirdo while you efficiently and conveniently condition your hair”
You need
  • A plastic bag
  • Couple of elastics
  • Elastic bandage
  • Oil or conditioner of your choice
  • Small heat pack
  • T-shirt or sweater that you don’t care too much about getting “dirty”

Start by oiling or conditioning your hair like you choose

Fold the braid up to fit into the bag and put it in. Twist the bag around the braid and secure with elastics

Prepare the heat pack and use the bandage to fixate the heat pack to the braid. I have been experimenting with a sheet of tin foil between the heat pack and the bandage to direct more heat into the hair.


You now look like an idiot from the back, but it’s a convenient and comfortable way to do a long term deep treatment


  1. I love this idea! A hot oil treatment without too much work or fuss. Just put it in and go to sleep. I couldn't wait to try it so I have it in my hair right now with some walnut oil.

  2. This is a great idea. My hair's kind of short for this type of deep treatment, but I'm going to keep this in mind. Thank you so much!
