Deep Conditioning

When I went natural the first time, I didn't know you had to actually deep condition your hair. Now that I am committed to staying natural, I want to learn as much as I possibly can about being natural, and having healthy natural hair.

This past Monday I deep conditioned my hair. I poured some EVOO on my hands, and rubbed it all over my hair. Then I pour some honey in my hands and rubbed it all over my hair. I then put a shower cap on, and killed time for 2 hours. After 2 hours I took a shower, and washed my hair with V05 Tea Therapy conditioner.

After my shower, my hair was so soft. I put some Jojoba oil on and went about my day. Now why do I put those particular products on my hair. EVOO adds moisture and honey is a humecent so it holds the moisture in.

Deep conditioning is an important part of having healthy natural hair. Some women DC once a week, multiple times a week, or twice a month. It's all up to you, and how often you want to do it. I will most likely DC once a week. But that might change as my hair grows.

What is your DC regimen and how often do you DC?
