Want longer hair? I know we all do. However, achieving longer hair requires a number of necessary components. Undoubtedly, one component is moisture.
Moisture is probably the most important element required for grooming healthy hair. Hair without moisture is dry, brittle and breaks off easily.
Benefits of Deep Conditioning II
🌻Deep conditioning softens the hair
Deep conditioning with a moisture DC is one of the best treatments for softer hair.
🌻Deep conditioning protects the hair
Deep conditioners coat the hair strands with an extra layer to protect them from harsh weather, the sun, heating appliances, etc
🌻Deep conditioning repairs damaged hair.
It does this by coating the entire strand, the extra coat covers up any damage.
🌻Deep conditioning makes the hair shinier.
Looking for ways to make your hair shinier? Deep conditioning works wonders! Deep conditioning improves your hair’s ability to remain moisturized, and moisturized hair gives more shine.

Wearing my silk scarf to bed every night is one of my resolutions for the year that I shared with you. Today, I’m sharing with you why it is important to do so.
Silk or satin scarves(or bonnets or pillowcases) are very soft and so they cushion your hair against the harsh effects of the fibres from our pillowcases and bedsheets.
Most ladies sleep with hair nets, however, hair nets are not the best if you are interested in growing long, healthy hair.
Hair nets aren’t much better than sleeping with nothing covering your hair at all. Nets have holes in them which means that your hair is still left exposed.
So why exactly should you sleep with a silk scarf?
Happy New Year people!!! Even though we’re 7 days into the year, it’s never too late😉. May 2017 be your best year yet!
New Years come with new resolutions, and although I’m not a fan of New Year resolutions, I do have some bad hair practices that I must stop this year. I’m sharing them with you all so you can learn not to do them and so you all can hold me accountable.

The Benefits of Deep Conditioning
1. Deep conditioning helps your hair retain moisture better.
If you realise that your natural hair is always dry you need to deep condition more often. A moisture deep conditioner is needed for dry hair.
2. Deep conditioning reduces hair breakage.
If your hair is breaking off so much, you would need to deep condition.
🌼Are there types of deep conditioners?
🌻 Yes, all deep conditioners are broadly classified into two:

2) Moisture DCs.
Protein DCs give strength to the hair. A moisture DC is one that increases the hair’s ability to retain moisture.
My mayonnaise DC works as both a protein and moisture treatment. Do check it out
