Quick Tip Monday!!!
Lately I’ve been hearing from quite a few women that they are neglecting to receive all the benefits that come from deep conditioning.
In other words, they don’t bother to deep condition.
by nature, natural hair is prone to dryness due to the fact that the natural oil in our hair takes longer to travel down the locks of our hair because it’s curly.
So in order for us to ensure that we are receiving an adequate amount of moisture, it’s up to us to put that back into our strands.
One of the best ways to do that is by Deep Conditioning.
Hair that is deep conditioned regularly is likely to be more manageable, softer, less prone to breakage and frizz, and is able to retain length.
When/How To Deep Condition………
You can choose to deep condition your hair before or after you’ve washed it. You also have the option to deep condition overnight, under a hooded dryer, steamer or just by applying it to your hair, putting a plastic cap/conditioning cap on for 20-30 minutes. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just do it.
How Often Should You Deep Condition.………
Once or twice a week will be very beneficial to your hair care regime. You will notice a huge difference in the way that your hair feels, looks and responds.
Switch It Up……….
It’s also important to remember, moisture and protein. Sometimes your hair may want a moisturizing deep conditioning and sometimes it may be needing a deep conditioner with protein.
If your hair is feeling a little mushy, it’s not holding a style as well, or it’s limp; that could be a clear indication that you need protein. Ex.
It your hair is feeling brassy, stringy, hard, or it’s breaking off; that could be a clear indication that you need moisture. Ex.
I personally like to alternate between moisture and protein for maximum hair health.
Those are some of my favorite products that can be purchased at Sally’s, Ulta, Wegman’s, The Vitamin Shoppe, Wholefoods, and Target.
Please let me know what products are your favorites for deep conditioning. I’m always interested in the care that others take with there hair.
P.S It doesn’t matter if you’re natural or relaxed. Deep conditioning is important for all hair types and textures.
Here’s To Your Health!!!
