Why is deep conditioning important?!?!
WE WASH OUR HAIR AT NIGHT AND MAKE IT A PRIORITY TO BRUSH IT BEFORE WALKING OUT THE DOOR EVERY SINGLE MORNING. DEEP CONDITIONING IS LIFE!!
We do this routine so often that we sometimes never stop to realize that we’re damaging our hair over time by washing, styling, heat-pressing, etc. We put our hair through a lot at times, so with that being said, I have a question that you might need to ask yourself next time you’re styling your hair in the mirror. “Have you deep conditioned lately?”
The results of implementing a deep conditioner in your hair can reduce thread damage over the course of time. A deep conditioner also poses more benefits than a normal conditioner. But wait, there are more benefits to come!
WHAT ARE THE KEY BENEFITS OF DEEP CONDITIONING?
- to prevent hair breakage and damage over time
- to restore the natural balance of proteins, amino acids, natural oils, and moisture in your hair
- to help restore natural hair color
- to hydrate your scalp to prevent dryness and itchiness
- to soften your hair, reduce frizzy hair, and give it a healthier texture
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU DEEP CONDITION?
How often you should deep condition depends on your current hair situation or hair type. If you have dry hair, damaged hair, or color-treated hair, try deep conditioning two to three times per week. Once this routine strengthens your hair and you’re starting to feel a healthier texture difference, reduce your deep conditioning regimen to once a week to keep from overwhelming your scalp. If you have oily hair, stick to your deep conditioning treatment once a week. For beautiful curly hair, moisture is key, so deep conditioner can be used up to twice a week.
After implementing a deep conditioner in your hair routine, you will be able to find the sweet spot for what frequency is best for your hair. If you need help determining how often to oil your scalp, apply a hair mask, or shampoo your hair, look no further than the Becky Articles.
HOW TO APPLY A DEEP CONDITIONER, CORRECTLY
Conditioner, deep conditioner, and hair masks are three totally different things. A regular conditioner gently cleanses and conditions your hair, while a deep conditioner plays the role of a treatment that amplifies the healing process from natural breakage; and restores your hair to its healthiest stage.
The order in which you apply your deep conditioner does make a major difference. Start off your wash day with your regular shampoo, follow up with your regular conditioner, and finish it off with your deep conditioner at the end. You should apply your deep conditioner last because it can serve as the final touch to a successful wash and can also give you a healthier scalp to stimulate your natural hair growth. Use a wide-toothed comb to distribute the rinse out conditioner evenly throughout your hair. For low porosity hair, it may be beneficial to use a shower cap to trap in some of the heat and moisture. After your wash routine, follow up with your regular hair products.
Trust us, your hair strands and hair shafts will thank you for using a deep conditioner.
