When you should and shouldn't do deep conditioning treatments.

Do you think that the way you are deep conditioning your hair is right or want to know when one should do deep conditioning?

Before moving further, let’s talk about how Deep Conditioning is an important element for your hair!

Deep conditioning treatment is an important part of maintaining healthy hair, and it should be done every wash day. Conditioners seal the hair's cuticle layer, which was opened by shampoo, for better moisture, frizz control, and strength.

Wonder Curl offers Deep Restoring Natural Hair Treatment, which increases your hair’s elasticity and adds a bounce and volume to it. One of the most important reasons to deep condition your natural hair is to keep it nourished.

Dry, damaged hair not only causes more hair breakage but also makes it more difficult to obtain some of your favorite everyday hairstyles.

Now, Let’s know when deep conditioning should be done and when not?

How often should you deep condition your hair?

Some people require more conditioning than others. For example,

  • Swim frequently,
  • Using heat tools,
  • Having color-treated hair,
  • Spending a lot of time in the sun, or
  • Have damaged hair.

So, you will require more moisture. The more damage you do to your hair, the more you need to deep condition it; however, finding the perfect amount relies on your lifestyle and the needs of your hair.

How to apply Deep Conditioner?

Let's see step by step how to apply Deep Conditioner.

Step 1: Always wash your hair first. Deep conditioning is far more effective on clean hair.

Step 2: Begin by applying conditioner to the ends of your hair and working your way up to your scalp. Ok

Step 3: Don't overdo it. This can make hair greasy by weighing it down.

Step 4: Remove the conditioner by rinsing it with cold water. It helps seal the hair cuticle, allowing all of the nutritious oils to be infused into the hair.

What if you do more conditioning, and How does over-conditioned hair appear?

Over-conditioned hair is limp, mushy, or lifeless and is also known as hygral fatigue. In this case, protein therapy is the fastest way to repair the problem. If your hair appears mushy or limp and you deep condition more than once a week, try lowering your deep conditioning frequency to once a week.

If your hair is reacting nicely to 2-3 deep conditioning treatments, there is no need to make a change. Many women with color-treated hair or who use heat regularly certainly need that extra moisture, so let your hair tell you what it needs.

When is it important to do deep conditioning treatment?

Deep Conditioning is good for all types of hair mention below.

  • Damaged hair
  • Dry hair
  • Brittle hair
  • Transitioning hair
  • Healthy hair

It protects the hair from heat and styling appliances while also replenishing moisture and important proteins in the hair shaft. Most importantly, thoroughly conditioning your hair helps to restore its luster, gloss, and strength.

Deep-conditioned hair is more manageable, softer, less prone to breakage and frizz, and capable of retaining length. There is no better time than now to lavish some additional attention on your locks.

I have mostly dry scalp and frizz and split ends what I want to get rid of. I have thrown the sulfates away because of my scalp, but I’d like to know how to deep condition. I have also dyed hair, but I want to grow it out and have my natural hair back. My hair type is 2a, lightly wavy.
