Conditioning your hair is an essential part of the process to achieving healthy, shiny hair. A conditioning service will smooth the outer cells, which prevents individual hairs from tangling. An added benefit is that conditioners make your hair feel softer to the touch and encourages shine.
A deep conditioner is applied directly to washed, clean hair, and allowed to sit for at least 10 minutes. It may be left in longer if more drastic results are needed. The conditioner is then washed out, and the hair is gently towel-dried and styled.
Some of the major key benefits of a deep conditioning include:
- Damage Prevention – Deep conditioning treatments penetrate the hair shaft and infuse the hair with moisture, and it improves the hair’s texture. All of this can help reduce breakage, split ends, and improves the overall health of your hair.
- Imparts Moisture – Conditioning treatments add moisture back into your hair, so that it looks, feels, and is nourished. Constant styling, such as blow drying or using a flat iron, can cause your hair to lose moisture, and become dry and brittle, making it prone to breakage.
- Promotes Elasticity – Dry, brittle hair snaps and breaks easily when handled, while well-nourished, strong, and moisturized hair does not. Deep conditioning treatments improves your hair’s elasticity, reducing your risk for breakage.
- Adds Shine and Luster – The hair products you use daily, in addition to the harsh effects of the environment, can rob your hair of moisture and shine over time. A deep conditioning treatment can repair damage, smooth the hair shaft, and turn dull, dry hair into attractive, shiny hair.
