In my previous article, “Top 5 Deep Conditioners Under $3 for Natural Hair“, we explored some great deep conditioning products that are highly concentrated to rebuild and nourish your strands.


Now I’ll share my 5-Step Deep Conditioning Method for Hair Restoration.

This powerful intensive method will give your hair and scalp the boost of hydration it craves.


I recommend this method for any hair type and texture but if you battle hair dryness more often than not, this moisture packed regimen will be a good replacement for your deep condition sessions.

How often should I do the 5-Step Deep Conditioning Method?


It’s super simple to gage how often you can incorporate this method. You can either use this method on your natural or chemically-treated hair as your regular deep conditioning regimen each month…


OR


For damaged or dry hair, use this method twice per month. Since you would be using this method more often, you can replace or alternate the Palmer’s and Dr. Miracle’s conditioners in the steps below with the following:

Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Treatment Masque Packette
Ion Effective Care Treatment Packette

STEP ONE:
Wash
your hair with your regular shampoo and conditioner. Lightly towel blot your hair so that it’s not excessively dripping.


Please read my articles, “Top 5 Shampoos Under $10 for Natural Hair” and “Top 3 Conditioners Under $10 for Natural Hair” for my recommendations, if needed.

STEP TWO:
Apply
a moderate amount of your preferred oil(s) to your hair; I recommend Vitamin E & Carrot Oil. Then apply Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Packette (Use two packs if you have very long or super thick hair). This is a concentrated treatment so you don’t need much of it to see results.


This keratin infused treatment is packed with silk proteins for hair strength and durability.


Put on a plastic cap and sit under a hair dryer for 15-30 mins on medium heat.


As an alternative, you can put on a plastic cap and wrap a towel around your head. Your body heat will also activate the penetration of this formula. Keep the towel on for 30 mins.

STEP THREE:
Rinse
out the first deep conditioner and oil. Lightly towel blot your hair so that it’s not excessively dripping.


Apply Dr. Miracle’s Feel it Formula Deep Conditioning Treatment Cleanse & Condition Super Strength.


This minty treatment is also intensive and fantastic if you are having issues with itchy, dry scalp and/or dandruff or have had a long term styles like braids, dreads or weaves, etc.


Put on a plastic cap and sit under a hair dryer for 15-30 mins on medium heat.


As an alternative, you can put on a plastic cap and wrap a towel around your head. Your body heat will also activate the penetration of this formula. Keep the towel on for 30 mins.

STEP FOUR:
Rinse
out the second deep conditioner. Apply Aphogee Keratin 2-Minute Reconstructor. Leave in the reconstructor for 2 minutes and rinse. Lightly towel blot your hair so that it’s not excessively dripping.


Apply ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment.


This treatment is a conditioning curl booster that will revitalize lifeless curls. It melts into your strands leaving your hair feeling super silky and soft with bouncy curls.


Please note: ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment will only accentuate your natural curl pattern. It will not change your curl pattern but it will soften your type3 and/or type 4 tresses as well as restore the elasticity to your natural coils & curls making it bouncy and lush…especially after this intensive deep conditioning session.


Put on a plastic cap and sit under a hair dryer for 15-30 mins on medium heat.

STEP FIVE:
Rinse
hair thoroughly and towel dry. Apply a leave-in spray(s) and oil or cream of your choice. Lightly Detangle. Apply your preferred styling products and style!

BONUS TIP

For best results regarding hair growth, restoration and length retention:


I recommend that you DO NOT fully blow dry your hair. It is best that you style the hair and let it air dry.


If your hair holds moisture and takes a long time to dry, section the hair and hold each section with your hand while drying with your blow dryer on the medium heat setting.

You can also style then sit under your hair dryer on the high setting and/or medium heat until the hair is no longer saturated.


The key is to maintain moisture in the hair. After all your time and effort in depositing all of this hydration, the last thing you want to do is forcefully deplete your moisture level with aggressive drying methods.
