Deep conditioning is one of the holy grails in the natural hair community and rightfully so. Not only does it help keep your hair healthy, it also helps to keep it moisturized in between wash days. If you’re someone who can’t seem to add deep conditioning into your wash routine due to time constraints, then you’ll definitely want to consider these time saving methods to give your hair what it needs.
Use a wrap or turban while running errands.
We all know that turbans and wraps are stylish alternatives for your hair when you want to protect it or just haven’t made it to wash day yet. But, did you know that it can help when you want to deep condition while on the go, too? Just add your conditioner — the Rescued! Thirst Quenching Recovery Conditioner works great — throw on your plastic cap, and wrap your head as you normally would on a regular day.
Let the heat from your workout do all of the work.
Planning to do a low to mid-intensity workout at home or in the gym? You can deep condition while doing so. Apply a deep conditioner like the Coco Repair — Deep Conditioner, add your plastic cap, and throw on one of your satin/silk scarves over it. The heat that you generate from your workout will serve as an all-natural steaming effect for your strands, which helps with the absorption of products.
Dress it up a bit with a low bun.
If you find yourself needing to briefly head out to an event, lunch, or even something for the kids, but desperately need to deep condition, opt for a low bun with a deep side part. Since your hair will be wet, it will be easy to style and get to lay down while a deep conditioner like AJ’s In Control — Moisturizing & Softening Conditioner is doing the work needed. To avoid product transfer on your clothes, don’t forget to tuck your ends into your bun securely. When you arrive home, rinse the deep conditioner and style as usual.
