The are plenty benefits of deep conditioning your hair, however if it is done incorrectly you could be causing more harm than good to your hair. Here are a few tips when deep conditioning your hair.
- use oils that penetrate your hair (coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil).
2. Alcohol Free Conditioners
- alcohol strips your hair of its needed nutrients, refrain from it.
3. Section your hair
-pretty simple, section your hair so that detangling is easier as well as making sure that the conditioner is evenly distributed.
-heat opens up the hair shaft therefore allowing the conditioner to enter. A hooded dryer can achieve this or a steamer.
5. Rinse with Cold Water
- cool water closes the hair shaft which then locks the conditioner in.
Down below is a YouTube video of Ivy Charlaine showing you how to deep condition your hair. Follow her on instagram and YouTube: IvyCharlaine and on Twitter: @ivycharlaine
