What is & How To Deep Condition Hair

how to use deep conditioner

Deep conditioning is an often neglected step in haircare routines. It involves applying a thick conditioner, specially formulated for this purpose, to the hair.. Deep conditioning takes advantage of hydrating and restorative ingredients that work their magic in transforming your hair into subtly soft tresses. But for those with curly, coily, or wavy hair it is essential to really give your curls the hydration it needs. Curlsmith deep conditioners are specially formulated with curls in mind, so you know you’ll only be getting the best for your hair type. 

Why Curly Hair Needs Deep Conditioning?

Curly hair tends to lack moisture compared to straight hair. This is because the structure of curls makes it harder for the hair’s natural oils to move down the hair shaft. This can lead to dry hair. Dry hair is far more prone to damage and this is why it’s so important to spend dedicated time moisturizing it. Without the correct nourishment it’s impossible to keep hair healthy looking and curls frizz free and defined. Hydrating the hair with a deep conditioner not only reduces breakage but it can add shine and vibrancy back to dull hair. When our hair is at its best it is also easier to manage! Whether you’re looking for detangled waves, bouncy curls or frizz free coils, a deep conditioner can revitalize your curls and confidence. 

Deep conditioners include nourishing ingredients such as avocado oil, and aloe vera, which are friends for curly hair as well as Hyaluronic Acid known as a moisturizing miracle in the skincare world. These ingredients provide moisture, shine, and hydration which can help achieve so much more when left in the hair for longer. This is where deep conditioners differ from normal conditioners!

How to Deep Condition Hair

It is left on the hair for a long period of time before being rinsed off. Depending on how dry your hair is you may choose a different length of time to leave the product on your hair. For a quick boost we recommend leaving on the hair for 10-15 minutes.  However if you have the time you should leave for 30 minutes for a deep moisturizing treatment. The longer you leave this conditioner on your hair, the longer it has to penetrate the hair and take its full rejuvenating effects. If you don’t have the time to dedicate to hydration right now, try a leave-in conditioner in the meantime.

What Deep Conditioner You Should Be Using for Your Hair Type

Every hair type has different needs, and this is still the case when it comes to deep conditioning. So it’s important you choose the right product for you. Our Hydro Creme Soothing Mask is perfect for adding a touch of hydration to all hair types. Its natural ingredients support hair’s elasticity, which in turn helps to promote hair growth. Your newly hydrated locks will have reduced signs of shedding and breakage!

For hair that is ultra dry and dull, we have our Double Cream Deep Quencher. This deep conditioning mask is formulated to provide intense moisture to hair strands without weighing them down. This makes this product incredible for curls!
