Hair can get dried out and damaged from the use of heat styling tools, dyes, chemical straighteners, and exposure to the sun. You may want to restore your hair’s moisture and body with a high-quality deep conditioning treatment. With the aid of a great conditioner, you can repair your gorgeous locks in no time. I teamed up with Nexxus New York Salon Care to dish on how I deep condition my hair.

First thing’s first, choose a treatment that’s right for your hair type. I aim toward products that seal in moisture, deep condition and add shine. I also am a huge fan of products that contain a lot of protein such as the Nexxus Humectress Caviar Complex.

1st Step

Your first step is to wash your hair using a gentle shampoo that won’t strip your hair. Avoid shampoos which are abrasive cleaning agents that cleanse hair of its natural oils and lead to dryness and breakage. I started off by using Nexxus Therappe Caviar Complex Shampoo which is silicone free.

2nd Step

Apply the deep conditioning product. Squeeze a dollop about the size of a quarter into your hands and rub your hands together. Then apply the product to your hair, beginning about halfway down the shaft and moving towards the tips of your hair. Then spread the any product that remains on your hands from the roots to the tips. Pay special attention to the tips, which tend to get drier than the rest of your hair. If necessary, use a wide-toothed comb to distribute the product, I personally prefer to finger comb my hair.

3rd Step

Let the product set in. Deep conditioning treatments require at least 5-10 minutes to get to the core of each strand of your hair. Check the instructions on the product you are using, as some may suggest being left on longer, but most should work in 30 minutes or less. I like to lock in the moisture by covering the head with a plastic cap while the conditioner is working. 

4th Step

Rinse out the product. Remove the shower cap and rinse your hair with cool water, which will tighten the hair shaft and make it look shiny. After rinsing, dry your hair with a microfiber towel to reduce frizz.

5th STep

Add Nexxus Diametress Headdress Leave in conditioner which contains green tea. Air dry and then style as usual. Your hair should be bouncy, glossy and well-conditioned. Tip: Wait a few days before shampooing your hair, so that you don’t negate the effects of the conditioning treatment by washing it out.
