In this blog, you’ll discover why deep conditioning is an essential step for maintaining healthy curls. With intense hydration, strength, manageability, and restored elasticity, your curls will thank you for the nourishing care. Read on to learn when and how to deep condition using the One & Only Creamy Conditioner.
✨ WHY DEEP CONDITIONING IS ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTHY CURLS:
1️⃣ Intense Hydration: Curls thrive on moisture, and deep conditioning delivers the ultimate dose of hydration. It replenishes moisture lost due to styling, weather, and everyday wear, leaving our curls bouncy, soft, and oh-so-nourished.
2️⃣ Strengthens and Repairs: Deep conditioning helps repair and strengthen hair from within. It minimises breakage, split ends, and damage caused by heat styling, chemicals, and environmental factors. It's like a superhero shield for your precious curls!
3️⃣ Enhances Manageability: Hello, detangling made easy! Deep conditioning smooths down the cuticles, making your curls more manageable and reducing frizz. Nourished curls result in enhanced definition and promotes your natural curl pattern.
4️⃣ Restores Elasticity: Curly hair tends to be more prone to dryness, which can lead to reduced elasticity. Deep conditioning revives your curls, restoring their bounce and elasticity, so they can spring back to life with every move.
✨ WHEN TO DEEP CONDITION YOUR CURLS:
Timing is key! Here's when you should give your curls some extra love with a deep conditioning session:
1️⃣ Regular Maintenance: Incorporate deep conditioning into your weekly or bi-weekly hair care routine, depending on your hair's needs. Consistency is key to maintain optimal moisture levels and keep those curls looking their best!
2️⃣ After Clarifying Wash: Because clarifying shampoos are so effective in removing buildup and impurities, your curls may feel a bit dryer after washing. To keep your curls in tip-top shape, ALWAYS deep condition your hair after a clarifying wash to restore moisture.
3️⃣ After Colouring / Highlighting: If you've recently colour treated your hair, deep conditioning is a must! It helps repair any damage caused by the chemical processes and restores moisture balance.
4️⃣ Seasonal TLC: Pay attention to the changing seasons. During dry, cold months or hot, sunny days, your curls may need some extra nourishment. Deep conditioning during these times can help combat the effects of harsh weather conditions.
✨ HOW TO DEEP CONDITION USING THE ONE & ONLY CREAMY CONDITIONER:
1️⃣ Wash and Prep: Apply the conditioner to sopping wet hair after your cleanse or cowash.
2️⃣ Wrap it Up: Cover your hair with plastic wrap, clingfilm, or a trusty shower cap, sealing in the goodness.
3️⃣ Cap of Comfort: Cover your head with the luxurious BonBon Deep Conditioning Cap, a cozy beanie, or a comforting towel to build warmth and allow the conditioner to penetrate deeply into the hair shaft.
4️⃣ Time to Chill: Relax and let it work its magic for 20-30 minutes. If a BonBon isn't at hand, bask under the sun or cozy up under a dryer to boost the heat.
5️⃣ Smooth Operator: Once back in the shower, glide your fingers through your hair in a gentle downward milking motion, smoothing down the cuticles for a sleek result.
6️⃣ Squish to Condish: Gather your curl clumps in your hand and 'squish to condish' to further push the product deeper into the hair shaft.
7️⃣ Rinse and Revive: Rinse thoroughly, making sure to rinse the scalp well.
8️⃣ Unleash the Styling Duo: Follow up with the dynamic duo of either the Crème De La Curl Creme OR Coiling Me Softly Curl Custard AND the Hold Me Baby Curly Hair Gel.
