Quality hair care is one of the most essential aspects of keeping your hair healthy and beautiful. In addition to using a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, deep conditioning treatments should be performed occasionally to ensure your hair maintains its shine. When used in conjunction with a hydrating shampoo, it can also reduce the amount of damage.
What Benefits Can You Expect?
Chemical processing, such as perms, hair coloring and other similar processes, can severely damage the hair. Even heat exposure from styling tools and certain medications can cause damage to your hair. This is where deep conditioning comes into play. Using this process as part of your quality hair care can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Improved elasticity
- Restored moisture
- More resistant to breakage
This means your hair is more likely to remain healthy when regularly conditioning your hair.
How Often Should It Be Done?
Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner should be used on a daily basis to protect your hair in between deep conditioning treatments. One of the biggest questions people have is how often they should use a deep conditioner. For most people, deep conditioning should be done two to four times a month. However, if your hair is severely damaged because of daily styling or regular chemical treatments, it should be done at least once a week to help restore health and vitality to damaged hair.
Tips for Deep Conditioning
There is a specific process you should follow each time you deep condition. First, it’s important to wash your hair with a hydrating shampoo. Once your hair is clean, apply the deep conditioning product from the ends to the scalp and allow it to sit in your hair for five to 30 minutes. This is best done in the shower. You can then wash and shave while you wait to rinse it out. In addition, the steam from the shower can help the conditioner work better. Rinse the conditioner out with cold water for the best results. If you can, leave the deep conditioner in overnight and rinse it out in the morning.
Regardless of how long you leave the deep conditioning treatment in your hair, you will find your hair begins to look healthier. Quality hair care requires careful attention to detail and hard work to make sure your hair remains healthy and strong. The less damage that occurs with your hair, the easier it will be to take care of.
