How To Deep Condition Using Regular Conditioner

At all costs we try to save money and budget, especially when it comes to hair products. We want the cheap way out, while giving our hair exactly what it needs. Let’s talk about conditioning your hair. It is an important step, right? Of course it is!

This is very important, especially if your hair is chemically treated. You should condition weekly, and by condition we mean deep condition. Deep conditioning provides the hair with its necessary nutrients and moisture to remain strong and healthy as it grows.

There are many deep conditioners out there to choose from. Most are reasonable, but not of a price that is desirable to pay frequently, unless the bottle size is humongous. First off, you must define what hair constantly needs the most. There are deep conditioners out there that are specifically for certain hair challenges (damaged, extra moisture, shine, retention, etc). Defining your hair’s needs will help big time with this next suggestion.

Have you ever heard that the theory that your regular conditioner cannot be used as a deep conditioner? Don’t believe the hype; it can. Your regular conditioner acts as a lighter Moisturizer, as opposed to your average deep conditioner.

Regular conditioner is designed to quickly replace the moisture that is stripped during shampooing. It gets the hair cuticles back in line, and with that being said, there are some ingredients you can add to your regular conditioner that will transform it into a deep conditioner. That’s right!

Here are some ingredients you can play with, and mix with your regular conditioner to achieve the deep conditioner want to achieve:

After you add these things to “regular” conditioner you haven’t saved any money so just buy a deep conditioner

Somaya Cader Mohammed

This was helpful but what do you mean by sealant please?

BlackHairInformation.com

A sealant is anything that locs moisture in your hair, so an oil is a sealant.. its not perfect but when put over water or a water based product your hair stays moisturized longer

Somaya Cader Mohammed

Thankyou sooo much I’m going to give this a go for sure!

Kashmere Noel

Try the LOC (liquid oil cream), LCO (liquid cream oil) WLO (water leave-in oil) methods for sealing. I personally use the WLO method

Somaya Cader Mohammed

I wish I has access to all the beautiful products that are available in the states here we have hardly anything that caters to my type of hair and what we do have sells out for months and months. Old products like dark and lovely moisture plus is the best I can do can you imagine and just the odd good oils like coconut and almond..

Somaya Cader Mohammed

Kashmere do you have any links to this please?

Fallon Pryce

So should I use a leave in conditioner and then spray on water mixed with extra Virgin olive oil to seal it in??

BlackHairInformation.com

u can use a water based leave in and then just plain olive oil on top.. no need to dilute the oil with water ..

Theresa Marie Bryant

Yay! I already do this. Glad to know I’m doing something right. I do have a fancy expensive deep conditioner but some days I’ll switch it up and mix olive oil into my vo5 moisture milk or tresemme conditioner and use that as my deep conditioner

Kelli Mcghee

OK this morning I mix olive oil with my deep con
Good to know I’m on the right track with this one thanks

Most of those things would be good to add to shampoo except for honey. While it is a natural humectant and will soften your hair fabulously it should also be stated that unless you take it off in 15-20 min it’s also a natural hair lightener. Also to get the full benefit a of honey it really should be raw honey. The more processed the less benefit, and yes there is a huge difference, in price as well. In fact a couple bananas some yogurt and honey with maybe a tablespoon of your favorite oil makes an excellent conditioner and is practically free. Just make sure you run it through a strainer to get the clumps out before putting on your hair. If not it will be a pain to rinse but the difference in that and regular conditioner is amazing. You can also add a few drops of t-tree oil to make it anti fungal , or peppermint oil for a good scalp treatment (really relaxing too) Anyway that’s my 2 cents, hope it is helpful

Do I add all these ingredients at the same time to my conditioner or some at a time?
