Why Everyone Should Be Deep Conditioning


Deep conditioning isn’t always considered an essential part of hair care. But it should be. The sheer number of benefits associated with regular deep conditioning is nothing to take lightly. In this article, we’ll share several reasons why everyone should be deep conditioning.

Deep Hydration and Moisture

The first and most important benefit of deep conditioning is the deep hydration and moisture it provides. Many of us deal with hair dryness on either a fleeting or chronic basis. Deep conditioners provide both hydration and moisture to the hair via ingredients like aloe vera, glycerin, argan oil, jojoba oil, and fatty alcohols. Regular deep conditioning can fix even the driest hair.

Damage Repair

We all deal with hair damage from time to time, whether it’s from wear and tear, chemical overprocessing, rough handling, etc. Regular hair treatments with the right deep conditioner can help tremendously with damage, enabling you to reach your hair growth and thickness goals.

Protection Against Damage

Not only does deep conditioning help to repair damage to the hair’s cuticle, but it also protects the hair from future damage. Most deep conditioners contain one or more ingredients that have protective abilities; silicones and sealing oils are typical.

Enhanced Manageability

When your hair is compromised with split ends and breakage, detangling and styling become a monumental task. Those split ends and rough cuticles snag in your comb, and it can be hard to achieve even simple styles. After deep conditioning, you’ll find that styling is easier and quicker than before. 

Better-looking Hair

Better-looking hair is an obvious benefit of deep conditioning. In as little as one treatment, your hair will be obviously shinier, smoother, and more beautiful overall. And when your hair already looks great, you won’t have to jump through as many hoops when it comes to styling.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Deep Conditioner

Just because a deep conditioner benefit is listed above doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to experience it. To get the most out of your deep conditioner, you need to know how to use it and which one to choose for your hair. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose a high-quality deep conditioner that tackles your specific hair issues and fits your hair type.

  • Only apply the deep conditioner to clean, damp hair. With your hair free of oils, debris, and buildup, it’ll be receptive to the ingredients in the deep conditioner.

  • Follow the usage instructions on your specific deep conditioner. Plan to let it sit on your hair for at least 3 minutes and up to 30 minutes.

  • Apply heat to your hair for the duration of the deep conditioning session to open up your hair cuticles and enhance product absorption.

  • Make your deep conditioning sessions part of your regular hair routine. One deep conditioning session won’t give you long-term results.
