All About Deep Conditioners and Treatments
by Myesha Smith
Prior to me becoming the resident blogger here at precioustresses.com, Adrienne had started an “all about” series educating you on hair care basics. She covered shampoos and conditioners but had never gotten around to giving you the lowdown on deep conditioners & treatments. Deep conditioners aren’t a one size fits all remedy. They should always be suited for your hair’s ailment at the time. Whether you wash at home or get your wash done at a salon, you should always include a treatment for your hair.
When your hair lacks moisture after a long wash week it’s important to reach for a treatment with hydrating ingredients and humectants. Treatments like these are most effective when a plastic cap is applied after your application. If you want extra benefits, you can sit under a hooded steamer or hair dryer.
Myesha’s Pick: Long Aid Naturals Manuka Honey & Bergamot Double Creme Moisture Masque
Adrienne’s Pick: Silicon Mix Bambu Treatment
Anything with the words protein or repair in the name means it’s helps to restructure the hair shaft. Protein treatments can reverse the effects of damage but if your damage is too severe it may be in your best interest to get scissor-happy. If your hair is low porosity, I definitely don’t suggest protein treatments for your hair unless it’s severely damaged.
Myesha’s Pick: Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment
Adriennne’s Pick: SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque
