Deep conditioning is a must, especially for natural hair! You should ALWAYS deep condition your hair after it has been washed. Deep conditioning your hair will prevent damage and will aid in keeping your hair in good health! I cannot stress how important deep conditioning is. It helps to keep your hair moisturized, enhances texture, makes it soft as well as decreasing breakage.
Hair masks are also a benefit to your hair. Like deep conditioning, it helps to keep your hair moisturized! Some people don’t know that keeping your hair hydrated is an important key when it comes down to hair growth. The more hydrated your hair is the less breakage you’ll experience. Some of my favorite ingredients to use in my hair mask Potion are Olive oil for moisture and shine, Coconut milk to prevent split ends, Peppermint oil for hair growth and Tea tree oil to foster your roots! Below are directions on how to deep condition your hair for those of you who don’t already know.
Step 1 – After your hair has been washed, divide your hair into four sections and apply deep conditioner on your hair thoroughly (be sure to focus more on your ends because this is the oldest part of your hair!)
Step 2 – After applying your deep conditioner, cover your head with a shower cap for 30 mins.
Finally – Wash it out and apply your favorite natural hair products!
If you prefer to use your homemade hair mask, apply the mask before you wash it. Cover your head with a shower cap for 30 mins then go on with your regular wash routine. Please come check back later!
