Things marketed as "Hot oil treatments" often don't contain any oil. (for example, Alberto V05 hot oil). Frankly I think a deep conditioner can do a lot more for hair, since anything marketed as a "conditioner" is going to contain moisture-attractors among the ingredients. Oil will not restore actual moisture, but instead, it prevents moisture from leaving the hair shaft.

Hope this helps : )

Usually  And especially, people with fine hair usually do better without silicones (see "Silicones FAQ" thread under hair product recommendations forum) which are found in Pantene.

I have coarse short hair and Redken All Soft went weird on my hair. I use the shampoo and it was ok at first but I feel like something was pulling my hair down and my hair stop becoming bouncy. The All Soft Heavy Cream made my hair even heavier and rough (!!!), so I'm gonna use it as a leave in when I go swimming. I tried Phyto Sesame (little silicone) and all work well. I believe the All Soft Range are heavy in silicone (not as heavy as Pantene), they contain dimethicone in the 4th of 5th ingredient which is not uncommon. All Soft was designed for dry or coarse hair, strange that it did not work on mine. Its about synergy, some products will work for you and not others. Choosing products based on texture and condition will limit your search but its no guarantee. I must say that the All Soft Addicive treatment is not bad, works well as a detangler and leave in treatment or just to make your hair shiny.

PS. The All Soft shampoo makes a fantastic body wash. My skin doesn't itch anymore.

You can try using a hot towel too. I find that works better then a shower cap for me.
