🌼Are there types of deep conditioners?
🌻 Yes, all deep conditioners are broadly classified into two:
1) Protein DCs; and
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
A moisture DC is one that
increases the hair’s ability to retain moisture. The hair feels softer to the touch after the treatment. .
🌼How do I know which one I need?
🌻You should alternate protein and moisture DCs depending on what your hair needs.
A protein DC can be used when your hair is feeling weak and limp. It will strengthen the hair and increase it’s durability.
A moisture DC can be used to “soften the hair” when your hair is dry. It improves the hair’s ability to keep moisture in.
These treatments should be alternated.
My ideal DC regimen would include one protein DC for every three moisture DCs.
