The Importance Of Deep Conditioning

Deep conditioning, hair mask, hair treatment; i’m sure it is something you have heard a lot about. You have also probably heard many varying things about it, one person says every week the other say twice a year. Some say its importance and others say its a waste of money. Obviously by the title of this, it is important; however why and how often? First let’s start with what even is it?

What is deep conditioning?

Deep condition, hair mask, treatments. What are they? A deep conditioner, in short, is basically a stronger conditioner. It is generally a protein based product when applied to the hair and place under heat, penetrates the hair shaft. Basically, I like to explain it as a conditioner, except the positive effects of this conditioner last longer than your regular conditioner that you use every wash day.

Why deep condition? 

So know that we know what deep conditioner is, let’s go into more detail about why it’s so important. When you deep condition your hair it adds shine and can help protect against future damage. Healthy hair responds to heat tools better than dry, brittle hair. This is basically like how you put heat protectant on your hair before you use any heat. It also promotes elasticity. Did you know healthy hair can stretch up to 50%

How often should I deep condition?

Know this is going to depend on you specific hair needs. If you have dry, compromised hair then you may want to deep condition more often then someone with fine silky straight hair. I personally have medium to fine hair with a slight curl pattern, so for me not enough added moisture mes lots of added frizz, therefore I deep condition weekly or bi-weekly.

What Kind of deep conditioner?

I Pureology and one that I make , however if you decide to use something else just make sure it has good ingredients and will meet your specific hair goals.
