Salona wants my advice on the best deep conditioning product for relaxed hair and natural hair because her daughter is natural while she is relaxed and she wants products that can apply to both of their types of hair.
Hair Tip #1 Avoid Deep Conditioners with Silicones Water Soluble and Non Water Soluble
It is o.k. to use water soluble silicones (PEG 8 or higher) in your deep conditioning treatment product but to avoid any issues with how well your other hair care products can absorb into your hair, avoid any and all forms of silicones in your hair care products. Water soluble silicones are only suggested as an ingredient in a leave in moisturizer because water soluble silicones don't penetrate your hair thus, making them useless in deep conditioners anyhow.
Hair Tip #2 Look for Shaft Penetrating Oils with ingredients like Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Avocado Oil
The best oil that has the ability to moisturize because it has the ability to penetrate your hair shaft is coconut oil! You can treat your hair with a coconut oil hair treatment and compare your results by taking pictures of your hair to see the coconut oil treatment before and after the process to observe whether or not a coconut treatment is what you needed to treat your hair and your daughter's hair. Coconut oil is a great oil for many hair situations because it significantly strengthens your hair and decreases hair breakage. Using olive oil and avocado oil for hair growth can somewhat penetrate the shaft if it is alkaline and oils are alkaline when they are cold pressed oils so make sure that you are using the best oils to recover from dry hair.
Hair Tip #3 Chemically Treated Hair Requires More Deep Moisturizing Maintenance
You can learn step by step details on how to deep condition relaxed hair properly and in short, you have to make sure that you are using a deep conditioner that has shaft penetrating ingredients as well as keep up with a hair care regimen suited for relaxed hair. Relaxed hair should be deep conditioned at least twice a month and natural hair should be deep conditioned at least once a month. You can increase or decrease how many times you perform your deep conditioning hair routine based on how well your hair maintains hydration throughout the week
