You want your hair to look its best. Although many expensive haircare products promise to give you amazing results, the truth is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to have healthy, beautiful hair. Alberto VO5 is a line of reasonably priced haircare products available at mass merchandisers. Alberto VO5 was created by the Alberto Culver company in 1961 and gradually expanded their product offerings to the full line available today.

Heat the tube of Alberto VO5 hot oil under warm running water or by soaking the tube in a cup of hot water for one minute. Open the tube and apply to damp hair, ensuring thorough coverage on ends. Leave oil on hair for one minute.

Rinse hot oil out of your hair. Apply a quarter-sized dollop of VO5 shampoo to hair and massage into scalp. Rinse with warm water.

Rinse shampoo from hair. Apply a dollop of VO5 conditioner. Rinse conditioner thoroughly from hair.

Dry and style hair, finishing with VO5 hairspray if desired.


  • Use the hot oil treatment up to once a week.
