How are you? Hope your week was as awesome as you are. This week’s post is all about DEEP CONDITIONING!!! Deep conditioning is a miracle worker for ladies (and guys) with natural hair. If you want to have healthy hair, you cannot afford not to deep condition. If you want to be able to manage natural hair, this is the miracle worker you need.
A deep conditioner is much different from a regular conditioner. Regular rinse out conditioners work simply by coating your hair with the ingredients they contain. However, deep conditioners are made to condition the hair more deeply. The ingredients in deep conditioners are able to penetrate the hair strands to nourish them from within-yum yum. The effects of deep conditioners last longer than regular conditioners. And the thicker the deep conditioner, the better.
Deep conditioners are great for repairing damaged hair, improving hair elasticity, giving moisture and shine, etc. Deep conditioners are usually of two types: protein DCs and moisture DCs. Protein deep conditioners add strength and repair damage done to the hair by manual manipulation, use of heat appliances, etc. Moisture deep conditioners are great for imparting moisture. Moisture DCs allow your hair to retain moisture longer, and leave your hair feeling much softer after use.
The great thing about this DC recipe is that it acts both as a protein and moisture DC. Sounds too good to be true? Try it out for yourself and see. I use this also as my pre-poo treatment.
I use this treatment once in two weeks, but you can use it more or less frequently, if you think you need to. For those of us who style our hair daily or use heat appliances regularly (e.g blow driers, flat irons, curling wands), I would recommend deep conditioning weekly.
