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:
- Plain Greek Yogurt
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or any oil)
- Shea Butter
