Most curlies know the importance of deep conditioning but do you know how to deep condition like a pro?
Though it is a fairly simple hair care practice to do, it’s easy to not reap the full benefits a deep conditioning session.
Deep conditioning treatments are the holy grail product for curly haired girls. They are a miracle treatment that can solve (almost) any problem. They are the real MVP.
How To Apply A Deep Conditioner
Apply a generous amount to wet hair. Gently massage into scalp and comb through with fingers or wide tooth comb making sure to evenly distribute the conditioner thoroughly covering every curl. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse with cool water. Heat helps open up the cuticle of the hair helping the conditioner to soak in.
If your hair is in desperate need of moisture, cover with a plastic cap. Sit under a hooded dryer for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. You can also wrap your hair in a warm, damp towel or shower cap.
Another good trick for the multi tasking women, is to apply the treatment onto the damp ends of your hair before your workout. Pull into a bun and let the conditioner sit whilst you work up a sweat!
Love to snooze? Once in a while, it’s a great idea to snooze with your deep conditioner in your hair. Not only is the conditioner in longer, but it warms up from your body heat as you sleep. If you're using a treatment with protein it's recommended not to sleep in it as you don't want to overload your hair with protein.
