Hi guys, it’s been a while since I answered your hair questions on the blog, so I thought it would be great to have another #AskNimi post. Remember to send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
My questions are:
1. How long does a deep conditioner need to stay on for?
2. Most importantly how do I get rid of dandruff. I’ve tried many things to no avail, including anti-dandruff shampoo & hair cream. I don’t use any special product for my scalp.Your suggestions would be appreciated
Anticipating your response.
Hi, thank you for reading my blog.
If the deep conditioner is a protein treatment you should only leave it on for the time stated on the treatment, which shouldn’t be longer than 15 minutes.
However, if it is a moisture treatment, it can be left on for as long as you want, you can even leave it overnight. I figured out that when I leave it longer, my hair remains moisturized better, and it’s much softer.

After the deep conditioner, you can rinse out thoroughly with water. But if you’re scared of the smell, you can wash with regular conditioner(co-washing) or a little shampoo
For your question about dandruff, you would probably need to see a trichologist who will be able to help with the treatment.
However, you could try the apple cider vinegar leave in in this post(number 3)
