Add oil to your hair every night
Most ladies understand the importance of implementing oils* into their hair routine. But, do you really apply oil EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT? The honest answer is probably no.
A lot of you may think this step is crazy because it will cause the hair to be heavy and weighed down. That is true if you go in too heavy handed with the application. The point of this step, though, is to simply keep the strands from popping and to reduce friction. To accomplish this, you only need a small amount of oil. The amount will differ depending on the length and density of your hair.
Oil prevents breakage and keeps the hair from fraying as it rubs against pillows, head scarves, and bed sheets. Taking a few drops and running it through your hair will have a cumulative positive effect and by Christmas, you will see a difference.
Deep condition with heat at least 2 times per month
The only thing worse than sitting under the dryer is deep conditioning*. It just sucks. There is nothing you can do besides wait, and when you skip this step, it’s noticeable.
To make matters worse, the most effective deep conditioning process includes heat. Not only do you have to deep condition, but you have to sit under the dryer and be ‘doubly’ miserable.
I understand, I hate it too. The fact remains that deep conditioning your hair with heat application pays off. Your strands need conditioning because conditioner helps to fill in the gaps in the strands that are caused by chemical processes. Deep conditioning is, well, the same thing but deeper.
Heat opens the layers of the hair, which allows the conditioner to get to the more delicate inner layers of the hair strands. Stronger hair from the inside out shows. Don’t skip the deep conditioning* ladies. It is only 2 times a month. You can do it.
