Why deep condition?

Have you ever shampooed your hair and all the oils have been stripped and it feels like straw? It’s a horrible feeling. Your hair has natural oils that some shampoos strip when trying to cleanse your hair. It is something that can be cleared up really quickly with a deep treatment!

Conditioners are so important for our hair and it plays an integral part in our hair’s health and look. Conditioners make your hair soft and shiny- everything we ask for. A lot of us have dry hair and are looking for more ways to moisturize! Using conditioners helps us restore the moisture we may have lost in the washing process.

A lot of times we are in a rush, but leaving on conditioners for a short length of time is good. When washing your hair, try to leave your conditioner in for about 5 minutes at the least.

If you have access to a steamer, sit under the steamer for about 20 minutes before washing your conditioner out.

If you have time, leave it on for awhile. Sometimes when I put conditioner in my hair, I put a shower cap on and do some house work. I rinse it out a couple of hours later and am left with moisturized hair.

There are many ways to condition and each person has a different hair type. Learn your hair type and determine how often you need to deep condition, how long you should leave the conditioner on, and what conditioners work best with your hair.
