Deep Conditioning is the Best Solution..

Suffering from severely dry or damaged hair?

Hair is really the most attracting part of our face which really changes the way we look, but for now even though your hair seems normal it seems like those bad hair days  of hair becoming more fragile and dry are becoming more and more frequent? You may have been doing everything right – protecting your hair from the elements, shampooing the requisite number of times, and spending hours styling it – but sometimes all your hair needs is a good  dose of deep conditioning.

 While conditioning is what you do after you shampoo your hair to keep it manageable, deep conditioning is a treatment that repairs your hair from root to tip and gives it strength by providing it with much-needed nourishment to bring out that extra bounce and shine. It replenishes your hair’s lost moisture, leaving it silky and strong. 
        Go in for a deep conditioning treatment twice a month and your hair will never show its bad mood again.
  • If you’re using salon products on your hair, make sure you don’t leave them on for very long as they will cause your hair to become over-conditioned. Anything between 15 minutes to one hour is a reasonable amount of time, but more than that will cause your hair to become brittle and cause it to break easily.
  • If you’re doing the treatment at home, make sure you apply the formula evenly all over your hair. Failure to do this may cause your hair to become uneven and badly nourished, all of which may defeat the whole purpose of the treatment.
  • If you have oily hair and are using the oil deep conditioning treatment, be very careful that you don’t apply the oil to your scalp. Just put on the oil on your hair strands, from root to tip and rinse after 15-30 minutes (you don’t need to leave it on for very long as your hair is quite oily anyway).
  • If you have the facility, apply the conditioner to your hair and sit in a steam room for 15-30 minutes. It will enable your hair to absorb the moisture faster and hasten up the process of healing.
Deep Conditioning : What Ingredients in Hair Conditioner Penetrate Hair?
Here is the list of every conditioning ingredient that could penetrates into hair.
Natural Hair - No Processing
-Hydrolysed wheat protein
-Coconut oil
-Cetrimonium bromide

Bleached Hair, Relaxed Hair or Damaged Hair (i.e cuticle damage)
- Everything in the unprocessed natural hair list above
-Some amino acids enhanced by being in a creamy conditioner (arginine, glycine, glutamic acid, phenylalanine, histidine)
-Artificial peptides (similar to hydrolysed protein)
-Some silicones or amodimethicones (Trimethylsilylamodimethicone)
-Hydrolysed palm oil
-18MEA a fatty acid/lipid

For best results, roll-up your conditioned hair into a shower cap and blow dry the outside of the cap for about ten minutes or so until your hair has dried somewhat. The heat helps your cuticles to take-in the hydration. After that, go ahead and rinse as usual, remembering to finish off with a blast of cold water to seal-in the hydration for some seriously slick-looking strands!
