The Benefits of Deep Conditioning Your Hair

  • Deep conditioning your hair will restore that bounce and prevent your hair from being dry and brittle.

  • Shine/Luster- Deep conditioning your hair will definitely add luster. If you find that your hair sometimes tends to be dry, consider deep conditioning your hair once a week or every other week.

How To Deep Condition Your Hair:

  1. Wash and Condition your hair preferably using a sulfate free shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner.
  2. Instead of using a towel to blot your hair, use an old shirt for less frizz.
  3. Apply the deep conditioner to your hair focusing on the ends and working your way up. Do not put the deep conditioner on your scalp, as it can cause build up.
  4. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and allow the deep conditioner to sit on your hair for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Rinse your hair out with cool/cold water. This will close up the pores on your hair and lock in the moisture.
  6. Style as usual.

I always emphasize how important it is to deep condition your hair. Two deep conditioners I love is the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream, 16 Ounce (Pack of 2) and the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner, 16 Ounce, so definitely be sure to try them out and let me know what you think!

  1. Dear Sister to Sister,

    I have a really rubbery hair. I transitioned to natural hair in the past two years but I feel like my hair isn’t growing enough as it should. I have seen others whom I transitioned before growing long full natural hair but mine remains short unless dragged.

    Don’t get me wrong, my hair is soft and dark but I’d like to see the length I have strived so far to grow.

    I usually wear my hair in natural protective braids for most of the year. I wear it loose for about three weeks in a year.

    I deep condition every two months and wash my hair in braids before losing it, I find I don’t know lose more hair that way.

    What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hey Sis, I would suggest maybe giving your hair a break for a longer period of time. 3 weeks in a year is just not enough. Although wearing protective styles can be great for your hair, I wouldn’t suggest keeping braids in for the majority of the year. As it can start weakening your natural hair. I would suggest leaving braids in for a max of a month and half and then giving your hair a break immediately after for a couple of months. This will give you time to really restore its strength by doing treatments. ( deep conditioner treatments should be done every week or every other week ) Also keep in mind you can do protective styles with your own hair not just necessarily braids. I hope this helped, be sure to subscribe to my blog for more tips! xo
