Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books the natural hair Bible and founder of for these videos I answer the questions you all send me via email so if any of you have any questions you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information so now you get right into this video and this video is because of an email I received from Tiffany, Tiffany says that she wants to know how often she truly needs to deep condition her natural hair plus she's tired of always is using coconut well and she just wants me to give her some suggestions apart as far as some other products you can use as well so Tiffany of course I'm gonna break down three things that I want you to incorporate or remember when you are deep conditioning your natural hair so first you only really need to deep condition virgin natural hair about once a month that's about how often I deep conditioner but I know everyone is different but if you don't have any coloring done to your hair you barely use heat or you don't use heat and you keep your hair protected most of the times you will notice that you don't need to deep conditioning as frequently so for hair that fits into this specific circumstance you only need to the condition monthly now if your hair is colored you have to deep conditioning may be on twice a month or if you use a lot of heat you may want to make sure you with you condition once a week to make sure you're not suffering from any adverse effects from the heat you have been placing on your hair and then additionally for the second tip is I am just going to throw in there that if you are relaxed or anyone else's is relaxed which she is natural but anyone watching is relaxed you want to the condition your hair right after your relaxer treatment this is the perfect time to do it because your cuticles are raised your hair is very open after this intensive chemical treatment on your hair so that's the perfect time to go right in apply your deep conditioning product or concoction that you made for your hair so that you can reap the most benefits and then from a second or actually my third last tip that I'm going to suggest that you tired of using coconut oil is that you can use things such as honey glycerin or even banana all three of these products are humectants (correction) are glycerin store they have the ability to attract water to a surface so those are the type of things you want to look for when you are deciding to buy a product that is a deep conditioner or you want to make your own home a deep conditioner is to make sure that the properties of whatever you're using is attracting water which are glycerides glycerin banana does a great job in so does honey so you can mix all three you can do two or you can sample one at a time per deep conditioning session to see which do you like that's best for your hair now you're saying you're tired of using coconut oil but if the effects of the coconut oil is giving you what you want such a stronger and shinier hair to keep using it but if you want hair that's softer I suggest that you use banana if you want such as stronger than keep using it but if you want hair that's softer I suggest that you use glycerin or honey to do so if you want super shiny hair or your hair is is extremely to dole for your liking then honey is the best choice for all of those options so keep using coconut oil if it works because if isn’t broke don't fix it and you can also use the other three options that I suggest as well to switch up things a little bit more so thanks Tiffany for your email and also thank all of you for watching apply whatever is from this video to your specific needs to help you to keep your hair well condition as well so thank you and until next time I'll see you all in my very next video
