Isn’t this the best day to discuss the best topic: HAIR?! You know how much I could speak about hair every day, every day!? Where do I even begin with deep conditioning? I’m assuming by basic definitions.
The practice of treating (healing/restoring) your hair with a moisturizing or protein-based conditioner is referred to as deep conditioning. It might mainly create the conditioning product used on your hair for a deep treatment, or it might simply be a “boosted” ordinary conditioner or even a homemade mixture! Deep conditioning provides moisture or protein to our strands, making them stronger and healthier!
Deep conditioning applies a thick and refreshing product to your hair while employing steam or moist heat to aid the product’s penetration. The objective is to heal dry, damaged hair by rebuilding the molecular layer and replenishing moisture, resulting in thicker, softer, and more revitalized hair.
Do you want to achieve your hair-growth target by the end of the year? If you don’t include deep conditioning in your routine regularly, you probably won’t, unless you’re one of the lucky* people who can do anything to their hair, and it still grows. So, here are five things to think about for good deep conditioning.
Section your hair so you may focus on one section at a time. Your cleansed hair should be moist and ready for the deep conditioning product. If you’ve just washed your hair with a cleanser, make sure it’s still wet. Then, apply the treatment solution from the ends to the roots. Because the ends of your hair require more reconstructive conditioning, we begin with them. Once the application is finished, tie up or use a hair clip to secure each part. When you’ve completed your entire head, make sure your ends are exposed to the steam by putting on a plastic cap, which should be the only thing between the ends and the steam.
You should use a restorative mixture for the deep conditioning procedure. I used to believe I could replace those carrier oils for deep conditioning, but this is an Oil Treatment, which serves an entirely different but vital role in your hair care. There was also a period when I tried a popular leave-in conditioner as a deep treatment with no success.
A deep conditioner should contain moisturizing low molecular fatty acids and hydrolyzed protein components to healing damaged cuticles, enhance hair condition, and supply nutrition. Because of the richness of the deep treatment, it usually is only used once a week. Homemade recipes including extremely ripe avocados combined with honey and castor oil do not include low molecular fatty acids that can penetrate the hair shaft. They may make your hair feel softer on the exterior, but they do little to restore the strength from the inside out, minimizing breakage.
