Deep conditioning is such an essential component of your hair regimen. Unfortunately, it is usually the most disregarded step of nurturing one’s hair! With our frequent styling methods, ample hair product application and modifications in the climate—deep conditioning becomes extremely imperative.
From personal experience, I’ve learned that the best way of implementing deep conditioning into your hair regimen is to do it every wash cycle (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly—although, the first two options are most recommended). Ultimately, it helps to replenish the hair’s moisture levels to combat dry hair and prevent breakage and split ends.
Fortunately, there are many different deep conditioners on the natural hair market. Of course, you can always create your own mix to make things interesting. Sometimes, this is the most suitable option as homemade deep conditioners have no chemicals or added dyes to interfere with its nourishing properties.
Still not convinced? Here are 4 reasons why deep conditioning will never get boring:
1. You can maintain/repair your hair’s overall health due to issues with dryness, split ends and heat damage.
2. It’s a great way to compensate the moisture that is lost when coloring one’s hair—not to mention its ability to enhance the color.
3. You can give your hair special treatment on a budget by using kitchen favorites—avocados, plain greek yogurt, eggs, honey, mayo, etc.
4. You can even opt to add some oils to your store-bought or homemade deep conditioners to maximize the amount of moisture in your deep conditioner. Or, add an essential oil for a natural and soothing fragrance to your homemade mixtures!
So you see? It’s not only vital, but it can also be fun! Go deep and watch your hair flourish! =)
