Deep conditioners are essential to keeping natural hair healthy. Many overlook their benefits but our coils, kinks and curls are delicate and need the reinforcing ingredients that are in many deep conditioners. One of the best ways to combat the elements, over-manipulations, chemicals and heat styling are using deep conditioners on hair every single wash day.
By incorporating a deep conditioning every wash day you will notice an immediate change in the health and condition of your hair. They impart moisture and elasticity back into the hair which helps to stave off dryness and breakage. Deep conditioners are nutrient-rich and offer essential vitamins to your strands by penetrating the hair's cuticle and imparting those necessary ingredients to weakened or damaged hair.
To make your deep conditioner work even better is to simply add heat. Adding heat to your deep conditioning session helps in two vital ways. It helps to fully lift the hair's cuticle to get those ingredients to be fully absorbed into the hair strand and allows for a better absorption of the product. You get an even better conditioning treatment by adding heat and reason to do it every wash day for getting optimal results from your deep conditioner.
Apply your deep conditioner after shampooing the hair, concentrating on the ends (the oldest parts of the hair). Leave the conditioner in your hair for about 30 minutes, and the best way to add heat is by using a thermal cap like the Hot Head Thermal Cap. This cap is easy to use, quick to heat up, holds heat for over 30 minutes and never needs to be plugged up!
The original flax filled, microwavable, deep conditioning heat cap, Hot Head Thermal Cap gives salon-quality deep conditioning treatments right at home and you only need to use a microwave to make it work. The heat-producing flaxseeds do all the work and the ingenious thermal cap is even in two sizes, adult and kid so you can get one for your little one too.
