Listen, after you read this post you will be fresh out of excuses as to why you cannot deep condition your hair. Deep conditioning is vital for some of us who might be experiencing a little breakage, dry hair, over processed hair, colored hair or normal hair that needs a bit of vitality.

With that said deep conditioning your hair can be pretty time consuming, especially when you have lots of things to do during the weekdays and weekends.

For me I had to come up with something to not skip that important step in my hair care regimen. I tried a few methods to get deep conditioning treatments in, some of which I will share with you here.

If you read any of these tips and wonder if your hair will not benefit from these deep conditioning short cuts, think again. My hair comes out as moisturized as ever just as if I were sitting under the hooded dryer for 30 minutes at a time.

Try these 5 ways to sneak deep conditioning into your busy schedule:

Doing chores and running errands

Sometimes you just can’t put off washing the dishes or leaving your crying baby in the crib to enjoy deep conditioning.


I mean, there are way too many chores for you to do. After you finish cleansing your hair, add your deep conditioner to your hair then put on a plastic cap.

Add a heat cap or a beanie to trap the heat in for the deep conditioning process. While your hair is taking in the extra moisture, take care of your chores or run vital errands. The more you move around the house or at the grocery store, the more your body will add natural heat to keep your deep conditioner activated.

In the shower

Now you don’t always have to leave your deep conditioner in for 30 minutes. Most deep conditioners are activated at least by 10 minutes.

So after you have cleansed your hair, add deep conditioner to your hair while you are taking your shower. Allow the steam to open your hair cuticles to allow the moisture to seep in for about 5 minutes.

Add a plastic cap to keep the steam on the hair for than 5 more minutes, then shave your legs or do your favorite body scrub then rinse as normal.

You’re absolutely right! Deep conditioning is NOT an option! It should certainly be a priority. Due to deep conditioning REGULARLY(after Every. Single. Wash,lol) my hair is healthier and fuller than it’s ever been. And length has surely followed! It’s the longest it’s ever been. I started my HHJ 2 years ago from just below collar bone length and now I’m just a few inches from waist length. I would also like to encourage you all to just be patient and consistent! Please don’t ever give up on your hair. You WILL see results! 🙂

Also, you can sneak in a deep condition by bagging your hair and putting on a wig 🙂
