Exclamation Not ALL conditioners can DEEP condition!!

I have noticed some ladies refer to deep conditioning their hair simply by putting a regular conditioner on their hair and letting it sit for a while. Some conditioners will NEVER DEEP CONDITION your hair no matter how LONG you leave it!

Regular conditioners just work on the surface of your hair shaft --they do not penetrate it. Deep conditioners penetrate the hair shaft to provide conditioning from within. Letting a regular conditioner just sit on your hair will NEVER DEEP CONDITION your hair!

Think of this analogy: conditioner is to rinse/cellophane/henna as
deep conditioner is to permanent color/highlights.
A rinse will not permanently color your hair no matter how long you leave it on your head.

Make sure you are applying a DEEP conditioner when you want to DEEP CONDITION!

Thanks for the tip. I was under the impression that I could use any conditioner for a deep conditioning treatment. I am constantly learning new things from this site.

I recall reading a post in another thread that said a "deep conditioner" is one that explicitly states to leave the product on the hair for at least 10-15 minutes.

This is true. When I deep condition I use two deep conditioners that state this on the back and then I top them off with hair mayonnaise and sit for like 25 minutes.

So you deep condition and then add hair mayo for another 25? Sounds good, I might have to try this

Actually, I put the two deep conditioners on, then the hair mayonnaise, and sit with all three for like 25 minutes.

However, the way you interpreted it sounds good. I might try putting the two deep conditioners on first and sitting for 25 minutes, then rinsing, then putting on the hair mayonnaise and sitting for another 25 and rinsing.

i agree. I see people say they deep condition with thin runny conditioners like suave and vo5 and i'm like are u serious??????? yeah they may may close the cuticle and help detangle but the benefit is short term.

when i think of deep conditioning i think of an intensive treatment thats supposed to strenghten and/or moisturize.

I use LeKair Cholesterol as a deep conditioner. It only says to leave on for 2 minutes, rinse out, and repeat the conditioning process. I've always thought cholesterol conditioners (LeKair, Queen Helene) were deep conditioners, but I never realized this one says 4 minutes total . I leave it on for like half an hour sometimes!

i remember reading about this in Cathy Howse' book. She says that for deep conditioning, look for a conditioner that specifically states 'deep conditioning' or 'intense' or instructions say to leave on for 15mins or so. The difference of those V05 conditioners or whatever, is that they are 'instant' conditioners. the purpose of these conditioners is to coat the hair to give it the appearance of shine and help with detangling and smoothing. But the purpose of a deep conditioner is to penetrate the shaft and impart moisture and protein to the hairshaft and eventually improve the health of the hair. Which probably explains why sometimes My V05 softens my hair a little better than my mizani hydrafuse deep cond...

I wish i can figure out if Humecto is a deep cond or not. because it coats the hair and helps with detangling, but i wonder if this is all i need to impart strength and moisture to my hair strands...

Default Re: Not ALL conditioners can DEEP condition!!

another reason why i luv aubrey organics honeysuckle rose.

Directions:
Shake well before using. After shampooing, apply to damp hair and work through, concentrating on the ends. Leave on for 1 to 2 minutes, then rinse. For deep conditioning: Apply to dry hair and distribute from scalp to ends. Leave on for 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition hair as usual.

1 product can do it all for one price.
