WHAT IS DEEP CONDITIONING?
Deep Conditioning is the application of a thick and restorative formula to your hair, using heat to encourage the penetration of the formula into your hair. The goal is to repair dry, damaged hair by rebuilding the hair’s molecular layer and replenishing moisture, encouraging thicker, softer and revitalised hair.
If your mane is already in good condition or shape, then deep conditioning will , protect hair from damage and enhance its natural condition, making them voluminous and shiny. That means deep conditioning is a miracle multi-tasker that is beneficial for every type of hair.
There are TWO TYPES of deep conditioners, PROTEIN and MOISTURE. You need both for balance. PROTEIN based deep conditioners are designed to strengthen the hair, improve elasticity, equalise porosity, improve hair appearance and add body. Damaged hair needs regular protein treatments till it’s repaired.
MOISTURIZING deep conditioner is supposed to be used right after, your hair will feel hard after a protein treatment because of keratin, so you need a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment to even and balance things out. A moisturizing deep conditioning treatment will add moisture to the hair, keep moisture in the hair and help soften it over time. So if you do a protein treatment this week, the week after do a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment.
You definitely should incorporate both moisturizing deep conditionersand protein deep conditioners into your hair regimen. If your hair is basically healthy then you should be using a moisturizing deep conditioner most of the time
Does Your Hair Need Protein?
Hair is made up of protein, so yes, you need it, but maybe not as much as you think. Protein strengthens the hair but the treatments are often drying, so you don’t want to overdo them. You need more protein if your hair is:
- Heat styled frequently
Just because you need more protein doesn’t mean you need a lot of it. Light protein in the form of a leave-in conditioner may be enough.
As a general guideline, start by making sure your hair gets twice as many moisturizing treatments as protein. Women who do a lot to their hair probably need weekly protein, but not intense ones. This means you have to deep condition your hair frequently, as well.
It’s not always easy finding a good moisture-protein balance, but when you’re familiar with your hair and its needs, you’ll know when to add or cut back on the various components required for healthy hair.
