Deep conditioning is the method of using a revitalizing conditioning product on your hair with the use of heat to penetrate your strands. This type of conditioning treatment should be a thicker formula than that of your regular hair conditioner and is made to be more concentrated; making its way deeper into the hair follicle & shaft to repair dry, damaged hair to a moisturized state and have shine.
A good deep conditioner contains nutrients that will leave your hair feeling smooth, silky, full of hydration and encourage elasticity. This rebuilding within the hair shaft will overall improve hair strength, durability and promote hair growth while strengthening your hair follicles and reducing breakage.
