9 Deep Conditioning Rules To Follow For Healthy Hair

9 Deep Conditioning Rules To Follow For Healthy Hair


There are many rules for general hair health, which can leave a lot of people feeling frustrated. However, if you follow some relatively basic rules for healthy hair, you just might see lasting results. We don't claim to know them all, but these are some of our favorite tips.

Getting the healthiest possible hair certainly takes work, one aspect of which leads to great results every time when carried out properly - the deep conditioning of your hair strands. Conditioning is meant to hydrate and nourish your hair, not simply repair the damage.

When deep conditioning is done the right way, it can make almost anyone's hair that much healthier and shinier. With more volume and body, a smooth, silky texture, and healthy locks protecting against everyday elements, deep conditioning is one of the most important rituals.

1. Make Sure To Focus

Too many people try to multi-task with these days. They're often in a situation where they need to constantly do other things, even when they're engaged with something that is supposed to be geared towards self-care only. When people do deep conditioning without focusing, it can oftentimes lead to severe consequences for the hair. This is not the time to
do something else. Focus on the task at hand and see great results right before your eyes.


2. Look At The Ingredients

Hair conditioning products differ in terms of their specific ingredients, and they need to have all of the right ones to work best. A conditioner is not going to work without certain elements. Other ingredients might be completely unnecessary, and it's important to be able to separate these ingredients from others. Also, keep in mind that an inexpensive deep conditioner that has all of the right ingredients will work just as fine (if not better) than a pricier competitor.


 

3. Start At The Roots

Working the conditioner from the roots of the hair downward allows nourishment to many of the most important parts of the hair. It makes sense to start at the roots in order to make the hair healthier along its entire length. Nourishing the ends of their hair can help to prevent further damage, while still managing to get great results. Try to condition hair thoroughly.


 

4. Deep Condition Regularly

Deep conditioning has to occur regularly in order to promote hair health. Of course, the term 'regularly' is highly subjective. Some people will do a deep conditioning treatment three to four days a week, while others may treat their hair less regularly than that. Starting a weekly routine will usually work best, but if that's not possible, try to condition every two weeks or so. Administering a deep conditioning treatment less often than that will make it more
difficult for many people to see the results they most desire. Consistency is the key.


 

5. Safely Apply Some Heat

A lot of people find that the application of heat can make all the difference when it comes to the efficacy of deep conditioning. Obviously, blow drying hair can cause damage in a lot of cases (and it often does), so make sure to wear a shower cap and blow dry the hair from there. You'll still get the styling results you're going for, but without all the extra damage.


 

6. Find What Works Best For You

A lot of beauty bloggers and other people tend to give advice that they think will apply to just anyone. This is often not the reality. You may need to fine tune your deep conditioning regimen in order to find what products and processes really work best for you. Some people experiment for years in order to try something without success, but don't give up. One way or another, you'll find the method that is perfect for your hair health. You just have to keep at it.


 

7. Take The Time To Do It Right

There are some people who think that 'more is more' when it comes to deep conditioning. This is actually not the case. Deep conditioning for hours is typically not a good idea. A deep conditioner should only take about 30 minutes or so, and if it takes longer, it is probably time to try out a new method. It is true that some ingredients will require more time than others, and people should be mindful of that. However, for the most part, deep conditioning is something that you should not have to devote any excessive amount of time to doing.


8. Use Steam As A Tool

Frequent steam therapy is a wonderful way to keep their hair healthy and hydrated. Steam can make a huge difference for people who are trying to find a quick way of making sure that they are nourishing their hair as deeply and carefully as possible. And steam has a tendency to make all deep conditioning efforts that much more effective. Many people have had a lot of success with the use of steam in almost every case. Give it a shot and see how it goes!


9. Less Is More

In addition to the fact that people should avoid spending too much time deep conditioning, they should also avoid using too much deep conditioner during a single session. Hair that has undergone too much deep conditioning will have a tendency to become dry, greasy, shiny, or limp, and sometimes, it will be all of the four above. Deep conditioning requires a more subtle hand. The next time you're doing a treatment, use the right amount of product, and no more.


No matter what deep conditioning treatment you decide to try, we guarantee there is something for everyone. Hopefully, these tips will help you get on top of your process and maximize the results you experience. Give one a try and see how you and your hair like it!
