If you’ve got natural hair that’s naturally curly or coily like 4C, you may suffer issues like dryness, frizz and breakage often due to your hair’s spiral or coiled structure. That’s precisely where deep conditioning treatments come in.
Deep conditioning treatments are formulated to penetrate the hair shaft, delivering a boost of moisture to the hair core, making the strands softer and much easier to manage. Regular deep conditioning not only boosts the hair’s hydration but also helps in maintaining its elasticity, reducing breakage, and promoting stronger strands.
Signs Your Natural Hair Needs Deep Conditioning
Here are the signs that your natural hair is craving a deep conditioning treatment.
How to Properly Deep Condition
To maximize the benefits of a deep conditioning treatment, follow these simple steps
1. Wash your hair first: Start by cleansing the scalp and hair with a gentle shampoo like our Sapphire Hair Shampoo to remove any product buildup, dirt and excess oil.
2. Apply generously: Pat the hair dry and divide it into manageable sections. Apply a good amount to each section and evenly distribute the deep conditioner through damp hair, ensuring complete coverage from the roots to tips (not the scalp).
3. Use a plastic cap to generate heat: For better penetration of the deep conditioner into your hair shafts, cover your hair with a plastic cap to generate the heat. For an added boost, apply heat using a hooded dryer. Heat opens up the hair cuticles, letting the treatment penetrate more effectively.
4. Wait: Let the deep conditioner work its magic for the recommended time. This usually ranges from 20 to 30 minutes.
5. Rinse out: Rinse your hair with cool water to seal the cuticles and lock in the moisture from the deep conditioner. If your deep conditioner is not a rinse-out, simply let the hair air dry or style as desired.
