5 Deep Conditioning Tips & Tricks

Deep conditioning tip 1More is more.
After shampooing, generously gob on the conditioning cream on your hair. Use a wide tooth comb to make sure every cuticle gets well coated.

Deep conditioning tip 2Time is everything.
For super dry hair, allow masks at least 20 minutes of "soak time" to work their magic.

Deep conditioning tip 3Conditioning masks are crucial.
Try to do a mask at least once a week. If your hair is really craving for TLC, try applying two times a week.

Deep conditioning tip 4Wrap it up.
For an intensive treatment, comb in at night and wrap strands into a bun. Rinse out in the morning.

Deep conditioning tip 5Coat the ends.
If you have superfine hair, just try coating your ends so hair doesn't get weighed down or greasy.

    Deep Conditioning Tricks of the Trade

    Conditioning tips, tricks & treatsIf you have dry hair:

    Try a lightweight conditioning cream like Redken Nature's Rescue Cooling Deep Conditioner.

    Quick Tip: SheKnows Beauty Expert Nina Sutton recommends that if you have dry hair, simply skip the blow dry. "Simply brush your hair out when you wake up and use a flat iron to smooth out your hair. Alternatively, you can use a one-inch-barrel curling iron to create a quick style. Divide your hair into four or five even sections on each side of your head. Wrap each section vertically away from your face and release. Once you have done each section, run your fingers through the curls for instant volume and style," she says.

      If you need to restore color:

      Lush's Marilyn hair treatment smells fantastic and works wonders on color treated hair.

        If you want softer hair:

        Scoop up Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask. After just one application, you will not be able to stop running your fingers through your hair.
