Hair Regimen Building: Importance of Deep Conditioner’s - Moisturizing…

What are Deep Conditioner’s?
Deep Conditioner’s are a must have product in any girl’s arsenal.  These are products that add moisture back into your hair to make it more manageable and soft.  Deep conditioner’s help penetrate our strands to encourage elasticity and strength.
What are the benefits of using a Deep Conditioner’s?
Deep Conditioning will improve the overall health of your hair hands down.  It helps to infuse nutrients into our strands to keep it healthy and strong. Even though our hair is made up of proteins we still need proteins to replenish our strands from the everyday wear and tear from combing and brushing. Regular deep conditioning keeps our hair soft, smooth and it also adds shine.  Everyone’s hair needs deep conditioning and for us relaxed girls who use heat styling tools or using hair dyes. By deep conditioning, our hair will be hydrated, soft and replenish the moisture lost.  Deep conditioning helps improves our hair elasticity. It also helps with retaining moisture in our hair and reduces breakage.

How to use Deep Conditioner’s?
You can deep condition on dry hair or after shampooing.  For best results,  add heat to the deep conditioner before placing it on your hair for further penetration. For example, placing the product container in a bowl of warm water to heat it up or in the microwave for 30seconds.  Also cover your hair with a plastic cap to keep the heat locked in. Sit under a heat cap or dryer to maintain the heat level applied to your hair. Rinse with cool water to close the hair cuticles which would help to seal in the moisture from the deep conditioning treatment.  You can boost your Deep Conditioner's effectiveness by adding natural oils or honey to the product before placing it on your hair. Mix the combination thoroughly. Apply the Deep Conditioner from root to the tip, making sure the product is on every strand of hair as pictured.

How to identify Moisturizing Deep Conditioners?
A Moisturizing Deep Conditioner is a product that should be filled with moisturizing properties to help with our hair’s elasticity and manageability. There are a few key words that should stand out to you when searching for a moisturizing Deep Conditioner. Such as “ Moisturizing”, “Hydration”, “Moisturizing Treatment”, “Ultra Hydration” ,“Conditioning Balm”. Here are some ingredients that may prove the product is moisturizing:
Water is one of the main and first ingredient, Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Glycerin, Honey, Shea butter, Mango butter and the list goes on.

How long should you keep on the Deep Conditioner?
This all depends on you the individual and the time frame you are working with. Ideally, the amount of time required is 15mins to 1 hour which is long enough for the product to penetrate your strands. You can opt to leave it in overnight but I wouldn't encourage that too often as you don’t want to end up with over moisturized hair, which will lead to breakage. Steaming is a great way to deep condition your hair as well. Since I don't own a steamer I can still steam my hair without an actual steamer as seen here (pictured above).

  2. Excellent post, Tomes! I try to keep my DCners on somewhere around 20-30 minutes. I'm really trying my best not to do the marathon conditioning sessions like I once did.
