How To Deep Condition Your Hair (5 Tips from NaturAll Club)

Hey there! Ready for another dose of hair tips from NaturAll Club?

Deep conditioning is an essential part of a healthy hair regimen- whether you're natural or not, and no matter your curl type. And yet, so many people don't know how to properly deep condition their hair, or neglect the practice altogether! Here are five simple tips to a deep conditioning routine.

how to deep condition your natural hair

1. READ THE LABEL and don’t be fooled by words like “all-natural” or “moisturizing” or “rapid repair.” Check the ingredients, and only use a deep conditioner with coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado: these are the only ingredients that can truly penetrate the hair shaft. (NaturAll Club’s conditioners use all three!) Other conditioners will just coat and sit on your hair.

2. Focus on your ends. They are usually the most dry, since natural oils take a while to work down the length of your hair strands. Applying a deep conditioner to your ends will restore oils, preventing breakage and split ends.

3. After applying a deep conditioner, cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic bag and add low heat (wrap a warm, damp towel around your head.) This opens up the cuticle and allows the deep conditioner to penetrate your hair. Leave in the DC for at least 20 minutes (we recommend 20-40.)

4. Rinse out deep conditioner with cold water, which closes the hair’s cuticle and helps the strands retain moisture. You can rinse with your normal shampoo and conditioning products! We recommend NaturAll Club's all-natural Wash Day Bundle.

5. And most importantly: Do it REGULARLY. Deep conditioners aren’t a magic solution to hair problems, and results will come slowly. Just like getting in shape after a long period of inactivity, hair growth and repair takes TIME and CONSISTENCY.

    @Samantha, we recommend getting your hair damp, applying the Deep Conditioner, and then washing your hair. As long as your hair is damp, you will get the full effect of the treatment!

    You recommend to deep condition in on dirty hair or after you wash? I don’t understand what good it will do on dirty hair.

    @dawn everyone is different but I deep condition once a week. I live in an area that is super hot and humid most of the time. When it gets cold it tends to be a moisture sapping cold. I find deep conditioning once a week for an hour has solved my frizz issue on my 4 a hair and keeps my hair soft, shiny and tangle free. I only have to trim three times a year no due to a lot less split ends. Some people deep condition once every two weeks. Just listen to your hair and drink plenty of water.

    @Mable, Yes, you can! The deep conditioner can act like a cowash, which would allow you to leave shampoo out of the routine.
