DIY Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment!
I recently chopped about 7 inches off of my hair and have neglected it ever since…until now.Â I’m not too sure what it is about being in Nevada but my hair gets sucked dry every single time I’m here!Â I couldn’t take it anymore!Â Only problem?Â I didn’t have a pre-made deep conditioning treatment available and I didn’t want to go out and spend money on one.Â So, I created my own!Â I’m going to show you how you can turn ANY conditioner (even the $.99 ones) into an effective deep conditioning treatment!
Here’s what you’re going to need:
Wash your hair as normal.Â Once you’re out of the shower and your hair is fully saturated and a little warm from the water, take your conditioner and smooth it over your strands.Â Concentrate on the ends.Â That’s where your hair will be the driest.
If your hair is long, you can put it in a loose bun when you’re done smoothing the conditioner through your strands.Â Once your hair is covered in conditioner, take your plastic bag and wrap it around your head.Â Use the handles to tie the bag closed.Â It should rest around the base of your hairline.Â If you have a shower cap, feel free to use that instead of a bag.
Now, take a towel out of your drier and wrap that over the plastic bag.
All that is left to do is relax!Â Keep your hair in the bag and under the towel for at least 15 minutes.Â Don’t fall asleep in it!Â I did and my hair was crispy from the conditioner in the morning!
The plastic bag will retain the heat from your head while the towel adds a little extra.Â This allows the conditioner to really soak in.Â You can use a blow dryer set on low to warm up your hair in the bag if you don’t have a warm towel available.Â Just be sure to avoid over-heating!Â You don’t want to fry your hair!
After you’ve given the conditioner at least 15 minutes to soak in, you can remove the towel and the bag and rinse it out!Â That’s all there is to it!
Now you can save a few bucks by not having to buy those pre-made deep conditioning hair treatments!
You can repeat the process once a week to keep your hair soft, silky, and moisturized if you want to!
Easy, huh?Â I hope you’ve enjoyed this DIY!Â Please share, tweet, like, and pin this post! 🙂 Thank you!
