Treating Dry and Damaged Hair


There are many hair salons that include conditioning in there hairstyling prices. The conditioning offered is normally a basic, neighborly type of conditioner. What I mean by neighborly is, you can purchase this product from your neighborhood beauty supply store for a cheap price. Yes, cheap sounds good but that doesn't guarantee quality and great results.

There are plenty of hair salons who offer a more enriched conditioner. These conditioners are considered "deep" conditioners. The deep conditioner is normally offered for an dditional price and can not be purchased at a regular beauty supply store.

For individuals who prefer deep conditioning, it can become a bit pricey. The salons offer different levels of conditioner for different prices. The price for the best quality deep conditioner according to a stylist ranges from $8-$12 extra dollars. So, let's do the math!

Beauticians feel a person with damaged hair should have a deep conditioning treatment 3x a week. If you have decided to follow their directions you will be spending an additional $24-$36 each week and $96-$144 a month. In my opinion, that is a bit much. I did some research and was able to come up  with home-made deep conditioners that WORK. The products used can be found in your kitchen. These recipes allow you to save money and still look great.


Different types of home-made deep conditioners.


Egg Treatment


Depending on the length of your hair combine together 2 egg yolks with 2 teaspoons of oil (perferably Olive ) and 2 tablespoons of water. Make sure the ingredients are mixed well. After shampooing, apply your deep conditioner to your hair. Make sure your ends are fully saturated with the mixture. After applying the deep conditioner, for a better result,  you can wrap your hair with a plastic cap, plastic bag or a warm towel. Let your conditioner sit for 15-20 mins. Rinse your hair with "COOL" water.


Hot Oil Treatment

You can use Olive Oil or Coconut Oil

Depending on the length of your hair, take 4  to 8 table spoons of Oil and heat it up. Make sure it is warm enough but not hot enought to burn you. After a good wash, part your hair in sections Apply the oil to each section. Make sure all of hair is saturated with the oil. Depending on the damage of your hair, you may only need to apply the treatment to the bottom half of your hair. Wrap your hair with a plastic cap, plastic bag or hot towel. Let it sit for 20 mins. WASH your hair thoroughly. Wash you hair until it feels clean but do not over wash your hair. I personally wash 1-2x because my hair is extremely dry. I want to keep some moisture to prevent breakage.


For those who  use conditioner everyday. Adding Olive Oil or Coconut Oil to your conditioning bottle creates an everyday deep conditioner. With this solution, wash your hair once after the application  has been completed.
