Why You Should Deep Condition
WHAT IS DEEP CONDITIONING?
Deep Conditioning is the hair’s version of drinking a glass of water. We all know how essential water is to our diet and skin, the same goes for deep conditioning and hair. It adds moisture to the hair strand and restores protein levels. Deep conditioning can be done in several ways: with oil, with a mask, and as a leave-in conditioner.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
How Often Should I Deep Condition?
The frequency of deep conditioning depends on two factors:
1. Your Hair Type
- Oily Hair: Once a week
- Dry Hair: Twice a week - Daily
- Colored / Damaged Hair: Three times a week
2. The product formulation.
- Protein-Based Conditioning: Proteins are vital for hair health but it is important to read how much protein is a safe dosage.
- Oil-Based Conditioning: Oil-based conditioning can be the easiest form of deep conditioning since it can be left in the hair and slowly absorbed. There is no damage or regulation needed for oil conditioning.
What’s The Perfect Deep Conditioning Formulation by Hair Type?
Oily Hair = Oil-Based
Although it may seem odd to add oil to oily hair, it is actually beneficial. The key is to include oils that balance the scalp and combat sebum production. For example jojoba oil and argan oil.
Dry Hair = Oil-Based
Dry hair benefits from oil-based conditioning by adding the moisture needed to prevent breakage and grow stronger.
Long Hair = Protein-Based & Oil-Based
Long hair is made up of older hair at the ends that need additional support to maintain longevity and health. A combination of protein and oil-based is imperative for long hair by both hydrating ends and rebuilding hair.
Colored Hair = Protein-Based & Oil-Based
Colored hair is damaged hair as harsh chemicals are used to color hair and alter the hair strands’ composition. Protein-based conditioning helps to rebuild the hair structure while oil-based conditioning adds much-needed moisture-damaged hair needs, allowing the best of both worlds. Damaged hair is thirsty hair.
Gray & White Hair = Protein-Based & Oil-Based
Gray and white hair is a weaker hair in general and is often accompanied by breakage and thinning because of the weakness associated with it. Protein-based conditioning strengthens the hair strand and offers longevity and endurance. Gray and white hair is also a drier hair strand that benefits from the moisture oil-based conditioning offers.
How Important is Heat When Deep Conditioning?
The hair strand has cuticles that open and close depending on temperature and humidity. For deep conditioning, it is ideal for the cuticle to be open, so that the mask can deeply penetrate into the strand, adding moisture and replenishing protein levels. To open the cuticle, slightly elevated temperatures and humidity will help. Using a microwavable heat cap allows you to apply the right amount of heat while maintaining humidity.
