Hey Ya’ll! Deep conditioning is one of the most important things in a hair regimen whether you are natural or not. But it can be a problem if you don’t use it correctly. Here are 5 tips that can guide you into deep conditioning.
What is deep conditioning?
Deep conditioner is a conditioner that helps to add moisture, manageability and elasticity.
This conditioner can be left on the hair from 5 min to 40 min depending on the brand.
Tip #1 Choose the right deep conditioner
Whatever shape your hair is in ( natural , dry, lacking protein etc.) there is a deep conditioner for you.
Tip #2 Apply correctly
When you apply your deep conditioner, you want to make sure that every strand gets coated. You want to apply it to your shaft and ends not your scalp.
Tip #3 Don’t leave it in too long
Every deep conditioner has a time that is has to stay on your hair. Make sure that you follow the directions. Leaving it on for hours or overnight doesn’t make it work any better.
Tip #4 Rinse with cool water
When you rinse your deep conditioner out with cool water it closes the cuticles of your hair and it keeps in the moisture and nutrients from the deep conditioner.
Tip #5 Be consistent
This is very important. Whether it’s once a week or every two weeks, whatever works for your hair do that.
We hope that these tips can guide you to productive deep conditioning!
