Deep Conditioning the hair provides a preventative measure to ensure that there is as little damage to the hair as possible through the style.
Using a deep conditioner on a regular basis can help add “life” to your hair.
You hair’s elasticity, moisture, color, and overall health will improve because of the emollients and other moisturizing ingredients in the conditioner.
Other ingredients in the conditioner will help fill holes of damage that lead to poor porosity.
The great thing about using a deep hair conditioner is that it gets the chance to be as effective as possible by being left on the hair longer and hopefully allowing heat to help it penetrate better.
Deep conditioning for 15-30 and using heat will definitely help with the healthiness of your hair.
In this video I discuss the benefits of deep conditioning. I also demonstrate one how I deep condition my natural hair.
Yes! Absolutely! Using a deep conditioner is vital to your hair’s health, whether you’re suffering from damage or your hair is healthy. Incorporating deep conditioning, at some level, into your regimen will help you maintain healthy hair and it can help you achieve healthy hair.
How Often Should You Deep Condition?
Deep conditioning is built into my regimen. I personally try to deep condition every time I wash my hair. Most months I wash my hair 2-3 times, so that would mean I deep condition about 2-3 times in most months. I recommend you deep condition with every wash as well. Especially if you use shampoo, because the detergents in your shampoo with remove the oils from your hair and scalp. Deep conditioners will restore this lost moisture.
There are soooo many deep conditioners on the market for you to try. Companies like SheaMoisture, have about 4 different deep conditioners for you to use. But honestly, just about every hair product line has a deep conditioner to complete their hair care system. Here’s a list of my top 3 deep conditioners, but I have a few more new favorites. I suggest you get a deep conditioner with lots of oils and a light protein.
