How to Deep Condition your Afro Hair like a Pro

Do you have frizzy hair? Is your hair brittle and prone to undergrowth? Deep-conditioning may be the solution to your problems!

Deep conditioning is used by people around the world, and enhances the health of your hair, making it soft, lustrous, and manageable. It contains a nutrient- and moisture-rich product to repair and renew your hair.

Let's look at what deep-conditioning can do for your hair and how to include it in your hair care routine.


Deep conditioning is a treatment that coats and treats your hair with nourishing products. It hydrates, strengthens, and protects your hair from the damage caused by chemicals and styling products. 


Step 1: Decide on a product.

Your hair type has a significant impact on the product you should use. There are a variety of products on the market that claim to replenish your hair's moisture. Be careful, however, some of them aren’t matched to your precise requirements. 

For textured hair, a thicker product is recommended. You should use a lightweight product if your hair is straight. It's also crucial to consider your scalp type. 

Step 2: Shampoo your hair

Make sure your scalp is clean and free of excess oil and filth before deep-conditioning it. Ensure using a shampoo that won't deprive your hair of its natural oils.

Step 3: Use a Deep Conditioner.

Of course, you can't afford to lose out on this opportunity. Apply the product to the shaft of your hair. While working your way down to the ends, avoid applying it too close to your roots. Make sure you're getting enough products on your hair ends. They are the driest section of your hair. 

Step 4: Allow Your Product to Set In

Depending on the product, different leave-on times are recommended. Leave the mask on for as long as the instructions say and allow it penetrate into your hair with a steamer.

Most deep-conditioners should only be left for 30 minutes or fewer.

Step 5: If necessary, use heat.

Increase the conditioning process and allow for product absorption. Some products may tell you to use a blow dryer or another heat source. 

Step 6: Using Cool Water, Rinse

Allow your hair cuticles to close by rinsing them with cool water. Allow for natural hair drying.
