Deep conditioning is great for your hair, but in moderation. I try to deep condition once a month, normally after washing (same day as the oil treatment). I have a personal hard top drier, so I condition, add coconut oil, put a shower cap on and sit under the drier for 10-15 minutes. I know it’s a little lengthy, but it makes my curls feel really soft. Since I have eczema in my scalp, the shampoo I have to use is really drying, so I try to deep condition after I use that-so it ends up being once or twice a month. Deep conditioning helps you keep your hair hydrated which is really important especially for this time of year!
