Deep Conditioners

Deep conditioners are great for repairing hair. They can transform dry brittle hair into soft and shiny locks. Making your own deep conditioner is a great way to get the same results without using chemicals and spending all your cash. You can make these conditioners from natural oils and from ingredients you can find in your kitchen.

When to use

It is best to deep condition your hair once a week to keep it in good healthy condition. This could vary though if you have really damaged or dry hair you might want to use it more frequently maybe three times a week or daily until you get the results you want.

Before conditioning

Using a clarifying shampoo to get rid of any build up before deep conditioning will help you get the very best results. This will allow your hair to absorb more of the nutrients and vitamins in the conditioners.
