Is deep conditioning really necessary? How often should it be done?  What should you use to deep condition your hair?  These are just a few of the questions that many women have about maintaining their hair.

I want to take a few minutes to break it down.  Most clients do not realize the importance and the main benefits of deep conditioning, until we share it with them. Deep conditioning is where we receive the bulk of the hydration that our hair so deeply needs. It allows for more moisture retention especially when accompanied by a pre oil cleanse. It helps to repair hair that has been striped of its natural proteins. It gives life to brittle hair that is not used to receiving or holding on to moisture.

Back to the question at hand: How often should you deep condition?
When the hair tells you so! I recommend deep conditioning on a weekly – bi weekly basis for the most part. When you are training your hair to hold on to more moisture , weekly deep conditioning is best. This way, the hair does not get to the point of dehydration. It is constantly and consistently filled with and able to retain the moisture its given. If you wash your hair twice a week, try a co wash mid way and then do your deep condition on your main cleanse day.
