Yes, you do need to deep condition

When it comes to having beautiful soft and healthy hair, there are a few musts. Deep conditioning is a must  in order to have gorgeous hair. Hair that is healthy always looks better. When you look better, you always feel better.

COMMON PROBLEMS

There are several ways that your hair can be damaged. Some women simply have naturally dry hair. Sometimes it is the products and processes that are used that dry it out. The way it is styled may even be damaging to our hair.

Problems that women face are dry, damaged hair, frizzy hair and thinning hair. Hair can become damaged by coloring, or by constantly blowing dry or straightening the hair. Occasionally the correct shampoo for your type of hair is not used. You may be using a shampoo for oily hair, when you need a moisturizing shampoo instead.

Those that blow out the hair, then run a straightening iron through it, or even use a curling iron throughout the hair are causing damage daily. Failing to use heat protectants will lead to damage caused by these heated tools. Color can dry out the hair, if it is not properly being moisturized. You can end up with great color, but it doesn’t look good because it is dry, brittle and frizzy.

SHAMPOO AND CONDITION

People with extremely oily hair may need to shampoo every day, but if your hair can easily take on a “day two” then you should probably skip a day. Daily conditioning is a must, but if you aren’t washing every day, then definitely condition 3 or 4 times per week. This step is vital in the health of your hair.

Conditioning your hair prevents your scalp from drying out. Dry scalp leads to dandruff and even hair loss. Conditioners are also nutrient rich and give the hair the vitamins that it needs to stay healthy. It will also help to control frizz, keep damaged hair healthy and replenish the moisture that heated tools take from your hair. Moisturized hair is softer and has more bounce because the hair shaft has the nutrients that it needs. When shopping for a conditioner, consider whether you have fine thin hair, damaged or processed hair or oily hair. Aveda has a Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner that does wonders for damaged hair.

DEEP CONDITIONING

In addition to your regular shampoo and conditioning routine, you should also deep condition the hair once per week, or at least every 2 to 3 weeks. Deep conditioning will lock the moisture into your hair. There are many products on the market such as Dry Remedy Moisturizing Treatment Masque that work well, but if you don’t have anything on hand, simply use your regular conditioner and leave it on your hair for at least a half hour. Rinse it out and the moisture will be sealed in and your hair will feel so soft and silky and will be completely rejuvenated.

GET A REGULAR TRIM

Healthy hair needs to be trimmed every 6 weeks. Getting a regular trim will help to eliminate the split ends and breakage that occurs naturally to the hair. With regular trims, your hair will look healthy and feel lighter, giving it more bounce. A great place to get a good style or trim is at Evan Todd Spa and Salon in West Lafayette, Indiana. They are experienced in hair care and can make your hair look healthy and fabulous.

Taking good care of your hair will get it in shape quickly. It’s never too late to start to really care for your damaged hair. Start with a quick trim then the deep conditioning to see just how great your hair will feel afterwards. Try to skip a day of washing your hair to reduce drying it out. Let go of the heated tools and extra products and let your hair dry on its own when you don’t have plans. You’ll find that taking care of your hair by following these tips and deep conditioning it will give you more beautiful and healthier hair.
